Yeah, unscrew the 2 top screws. Underneath the lid, there's instructions on how to manually remove the tape. You're also going to have to pull out the tape tray. There's a metal piece holding it down that you can remove by taking out the 2 screws. Then it's a matter of pulling the tray out and turning the tiny gear at the front (not the 2 bigger ones on the side) until it makes the full motion path. Holy ****, that takes a long time. Once you have removed the tape, replace the tray, the holding bar, the 2 screws for that, and the cover.

Use an hair dryer and warm within the set. If it clears wipe off any dew that has set in . Wipe also the head clear with a good swab. if the fault is recurring then clean the dew switch sensor or replace.
This is found inside the loading compartment , a small square block. about 1.5mm. Helpful. Good day

The probem as told on another site (sorry, can't remember to give proper credit) is that the pinch roller is not making contact with the capstan. THis is exacly what happened to my 1800 after sitting for a long time with no use. THe solution was to manually excersize the lever going to the solenoid to unstick the mechanism. Then, voila, pinch roller pinches, tape moves, UVW1800 happy again.
