Okay, what do we have here for zero dollars. JVC P29. It picks up the cassette, rotates the head assembly, the guides pull the tape out of the cassette and... after a while the guides go back under the cassette and the tape stays in place.
A layman's guess --- the main motor(s) are dead. Otherwise it would have dragged the tape back into the cassette.
