Panasonic PV-GS15 Cassette compartment jammed

It sounds like the microswitch that signals the cassette closed condition is faulty.  Try removing the battery for a few minutes.  Reinsert the battery.  The unit should reset and eject since it is partially in the ejected position.  At this point you could also try hitting the eject button to trigger the eject as well.  If that fails, then the unit will need to be dis-assembled and unloaded by hand.  This is not something that should be done without experience though.  Good luck and keep us posted.
