I would verify that there is not a tape in the unit already. In some units, the tape drops nearly out of sight when inserted, so it may not be obvious. If there is a tape inside and there are no other indications, such as the tape icon on the display, then you are looking at removal of the unit for repair.

If there is no tape inside, then more details would be needed...

1) When attempting to insert the tape, does it run into a physical stop or is it that the machine doesn't pull it in all the way when it is inserted.

2) When did it stop working? Under what conditions did if fail?

3) Does the rest of radio/cassette/(CD?) work normally?

How can one hook up their mp3 player to their car stereo?

There are a variety of ways to hook up a mp3 player to a car stereo. Older cars that have cassette players can use a cassette adapter that plugs into the jack on your mp3 device and then is inserted in to the cassette deck. Many newer cars have CD players rather than cassette decks so another option would be to use FM transmitter that works with your FM radio through a station with a very weak signal. Other approaches are to use an auxiliary input, line in connectors, or a USB stereo connection.
