Question about Dell PowerVault 110T LTO-2 Ultrium Tape Drive

1 Answer

The Error light is lit.

Error light blinks constantly and the Status light is on. I have cycled power on it several times and it still reverts to the same status. It does this with or without a tape inserted. Any ideas?

I have 15 of these, and have had this happen 3 times (2 of them in brand new servers).
The first thing to try is updating the firmware (you can download it from the Dell site).
If that does not fix it, the next step is replacement.
In the 3 times I had it happen, that was the fix (we tried a number of different things previous).
Seems there was a long series of these drives being bad, replacement was the only cure.

If it's out of warranty, you may want to try contacting Ultrium.

    Sorry, not Ultrium (it's still early here) That should be an IBM unit. You can check this on the information tag on the unit.

    If it is IBM made (which mine were) you can try contacting them.

Status Light is constant red - I have already changed lamp. No Picture - How can I fix?

Press the Menu and the Device/input buttons both in together and see if the led blinks the two digit code of three blinks pause then followed by four blinks then it repeats the 34 blink several times. If so then the V26 Chassis power repair kit from will usually solve that issue. The kit contains the replacement capacitors and the CD with repair instructions.

Status light is blinking red, power button orange nec vt700

Look at the number of blinks of the status light.
[1] If it blinks at one cycle (0.5seconds On and 2.5seconds OFF) : Lamp cover error or lamp housing error. Replace the lamp cover or lamp housing correctly.
[2] If it blinks 2 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Temperature error. The projector is overheated. Move the projector to a cooler position.
[3] if it blinks at 4 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Fan error. Fans sill not work correctly.
[4] If it bliks at 6 cycles (0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF): Lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again.
[5] If it blinks continous (Red): Lamp has reached the end of its life. Lamp replacement messege will be displayed. Replace Lamp with same type and number. After replacement reset lamp hour. OK.

Amber light on oki c3300 continues to flash and printer will not print

Here's what the owner's manual has to say:

Error status (Amber, blinking): you cannot continue to use the
printer. Intervention is required to recover from the error. Fatal
errors are irrecoverable and require a service call.

Blinking 1 (2S cycle)
An error has occurred but
printing can continue if you
press the ON LINE or CANCEL

Blinking 2 (500mS cycle)
An error has occurred. You
need to replace consumables
or remove jammed paper, for
example. The printer then
recovers from the error and
printing becomes possible

Blinking 3 (120mS cycle)
A serious error has occurred.
rebooting or a service call is

The Status Monitor in Windows provides a readable description
of the printer status corresponding to the indications of the
LEDs. In Mac, the printer driver provides status information
once you have sent a document to print. In Windows, if you
have the Status Monitor Preferences set to Pop up on alerts,
this readable message will be presented on screen whenever
an abnormal condition occurs.

There's no further information. Sorry.

I have replaced bulbs in 3 different types of NEC projectors: a silver, older model thta uses a VT60LP bulb, model VT595 and VT470. The lamp will still not work - the power and status light just continue...

I had the same issue, what I figured out was that I never removed the lamp door correctly, causing a small plastic piece to break off. To see if this is also your problem, inspect the back of the lamp door, top right corner, if it seems a rectangular plastic piece is missing, thats the problem. It presses in a small button nearby the lamp to let the projector know it's safe to power on.

I've attached an image to help out.ea22ca6.gif

Blinking status light

Replacing the lamp with an old one was helpful for me. Good news: the projector itself not faulty. Bad news: I have two projectors with the same issue at the same time (the lamps were replaced also at the same time) after only 400 hours of running.
