Error code 6 on tape drive 3580 H11

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? Please help

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.

IBM 3580 Lto3 drive showing in Device manager but not showing in ntbackup while taking bkp


I am guessing you don,t have a driver installed for this device.
Just manually add the driver but look for LTO as the MANUFACTURER - there is a generic driver in there which should work fine.
Better still, also upgrade your backup program - even to an old copy of backup exec. It has proper cataloguing and also its own driver family too.

Stuck tape


The tape won't come out when resetting the drive. Error 6 is serious.
To get out the tape you must open the drive. But IBM has a discription online (and in the user manual) how you can do this.

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.
