How do you manualy eject a stuck tape from a Quantum DLT VS80 external tape drive


Hello, if it has an eject button, press it quickly several times (can't remember the exact number; try 3 first, then 5, then 7)the reason being that on earlier DLT's the firmware would cause a drive reset which would, if there wasn't a detached leader or other physical problem, result in a tape unload.
p.s. do let me know how you get on!

DLT-S4 tape is stuck in Quantum drive all 3 LEDs flashing together. Eject tape button does not work, how to get the tape out?


Hello, on some of the older DLT drives, if you press the 'eject' button several times the drive firmware attempts an unload operation. I'm not sure of the number of times you have to press it though...try pressing it in and releasing it 3 times (in quick succession). If that doesn't do anything, try 7 times.
It's worth a try!

On power up we get an 'E' during drive initialization


E stands for error (Although i am sure you could have guessed this)

Try to see if the drive at the back is passing self test or not so we know if it is a drive or loader issue

If it looks as if the drive is OK try cleaning the tape slots as there are sensors to sense tape loaded etc

Is the arm (and the main chassis) bent? this will also cause issues.

If it is a drive issue (Drive fails POST) then it is most likely a tape leader issue where the drives needs to be removed and the leader refitted (see other posts on here about DLT tape leader issues)

Replacing tapes


Hi,

if the back up job has completed it should eject or
you should be able to tell the software you are using for a back up to eject.
or there should be an eject botton on the front of your tape drive.

Good Luck

Tape eject from drive


Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.


Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?

ADIC Scalar 24 LTO2 Drive issue


We have the same problem with our ADIC Scalar 24. The only way we have been able to eject the tape is to cycle power on the tape library and after it has finished reading the tape barcodes, we can use the front panel command to unmount the tape that is in the drive. We haven't been able to find a solution to the problem and it happens at least once a week

DLT VS160


red LED blinkin suggests the drive is reporting some sort of internal error, if you can see no obvuios problem (something jammed in the mechanism, ect ect) take it to someone who can dismantle it and check for dry joints, jamming things like that
