    The tape deck on my 2003 accent is stuck with a tape in it. I tried
    holding the eject button for 5 seconds as the manual suggests and it didnt
    help. I also checked TSB's and they said the same thing. Is there any way to
    get it out without causing damage ? The radio works fine, just the tape part
    is messed up.

    Just a question.... Who still has tape decks these days???? I thought CD
    players were standard

    How about a combination of hitting eject and pulling on the tape with
    needle nose pliers?

    I still have a tape deck. It's great. I bought a tape adaptor for $30
    and use my Ipod in the car. No more listening to a cd fo six months
    and then it won't play anymore cause it skips so much.

    I use the tape deck with an adapter for my mp3 player as well

    I tried gently pulling on it while hitting the eject button, no go. I didnt
    want to get too rough with it.

    It looks like there is a whole carrige that moves up and down with the tape
    in it.

    I'm using a transmitter for now but they are kinda weak. I may just change
    the radio for one with an aux port. Any advice on changing the radio ???

  7. My Sonata has the optional 6 CD MP3 player. I've not paid any attention to
    the iPod craze and MP3 until now. I can burn a disk with over 130 racks of
    MP3 on it. I rip them to the MP3 format with Medial Player, they make the
    CD from there. I can get over 300 miles on one disk!
