| In any case your next step is to carefully remove the drive from the
| machine, even with the cover on top of the tape drive itself I believe
| you'll be able to see if the tape is wound around the takeup reel.

Sorry to bother you gain, I have now removed the drive from the machine and taken the logic board off the drive. There is a lot of tape on the tkeup reel (about 1/2" thickness). How do I either unloaad the tape manually or persuade the drive to release the cassette so that I can pull out the tape. I am not bothered about the data on the tape, I just want to get it out of the drive so that I can use the drive again.
