Tascam DA-30 Problem

Hi all, does anyone have any knowledge of tape loading problems on a Tascam DA-30 DAT machine. I've just bought one from that popular auction site. It's cosmetically in good condition but has a loading problem. When a cassette is inserted it tries to load but immediately ejects. I've taken the case off and it seems that the tape is not being taken out to the revolving head. Is this a simple fix or major surgery?
What is the general opinion of this machine? Worth repairing?
