The Cassette deck in my car doesn't play music! Please help

It was working just fine. Then it started making these high pitched sounds whenever I had the iPod adapter playing. Now it won't play any tapes at all. The radio still works, so I know I didn't just blow out the speakers or something. It still sounds like it's spinning the tape and it doesn't eject or rewind anything.

ANSWERS:

"The most likely culprits are

#1 the belt that controls the cassette mechanism has gone bad/loose or broken

2 the switches that control the mechanism are dirty or broken

Both would require removal of the unit from the car and you'd need to bring it to a electronics repair shop. Any decent tech would charge $75-125 to do it right. They'd also clean the heads and tape path, so it'll probably sound a lot better once they are done. good luck!"
