Intermittent problem My external IBM tape drive had giving us problems in the last 30 days. I think the tape drive has some mechanical problem, sometime it shows a ?6? at the LCD, sometime it can?t read the tape, sometime the AS400 shows a tape drive error then we have to turn it off and on to reset it. Can you have someone help?

Backup using Tape LTO06 TS32000 IBM Library


Tapes do brake, at the end of the day they are mechanical devices.

Just throw it away and buy another one.
But it can be reformatted or checked using IBM utilities from the atape drivers in case you still want it (ITDT or tapeutil)

Yes it needs repair, I suppose the tapes are fine them selfs so they should work fine in another one, you will have to service the tape drive, you can get another tape drive and the tapes should work.

IBM TS3200 Code 9F 08


The manual is online with IBM.
Chapter 8 explains the error codes and 9F (mean Error code) means Rotation range out of specification 08 9sub error code) means error during rotation initialisation, get range failed.
Then the manual says: "Isolating a library controller card versus accessor enclosure problem" on page 7-11
But I guess you better look it up yourself. If you don't have any parts, you have to contact IBM.
Look yourself? start in chapter 8, page 225 of the manual under this link.

I've got a 3580 Ultrium tape drive with a tape that won't eject and the unit displays error code 6. Is there a trick to get the tape out?


I had this same problem a few mins ago. I held the tape up with my finger as I hit eject. The tape came right out. Then I put in a cleaning tape and had no issues at all. You don't need to disassemble the unit at all.
