Get a professional repair person to extract your tape and check the tape mechanism for problems. Otherwise you may lose whatever was recorded on the tape. Without a pro's help, you also put at risk all tapes you put in that deck in the future.

You say you replaced the battery. To do that you must have opened up the DA-78HR. While open, could you see if the tape was strewn around inside, or wrapped around a capstan? Basically, was it anywhere it shouldn't be?

I think you are right, I will send the machine to the tascam rep.
the tape looked fine like normal on the head but no way to eject, I did not force anything

thank you
