Dissecting a TZ30 drive

I have on my desk a TZ30 (half height TK50 drive) and it has a tape inside
of it. Powering it up and pressing unload starts a rewind and then it gives
up (all lights flash). I'm guessing the tape presense sensor is dirty or
otherwise disabled but to get to it I really would like to remove the
existing tape. Unfortuately I cannot find how to manually "unlock" the
drive. Clues anyone?
