Tape stuck in SDLT Tape Drive

Hi:

I have a SDLT Tape cleaner stuck in the LVD tape drive (Compaq TR-S12XA-CM). Is there a way to release the catch & unload the drive without power?

The drive is normally installed in a MSL 5026 Tape library.

How to remove stuck tape


To type over the 3 pages from the manual and put the two images here, would be to much. Every DLT and Ultra SDLT manual has a chapter about how to remove the tape, when it got stuck. Please use your own manual for this.

Using SDLT cleaning Tape


When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Sounds like it may be the cleaning light (far right)

You need to use a cleaning tape in the drive (they do expire after either 20 or 40 uses so use a brand new one to be sure)

That should clear the light. If it comes back on after another backup then try using the cleaning tape again and then a brand new tape for the backup.
If the light comes on again then the drive will need to go for repair as the head is knackered.

Try www.tape-drive-repair.com for this as they are pretty good price wise and also offer a 1 years warranty on their drives and repairs

My Drive will not eject the tape


Turn off the tape drive. (Switch in the back of the unit. Wait 2 minutes and then turn unit back on. Tape drive should issue a write data command and then rewind the tape. After rewind completes the tape should eject. If it does not eject after rrewind completes than try holding the eject button for 5 seconds to attempt a "force eject"

Note: Do not repeatedly press the eject button as this can cause damage to the tape and the tape drive.

Stops during boot


First of all the DS20 is an Alpha box not a VAX. The problem here is usually an adress conflict. These tape drives are usually device 500. Try placing the drive onto a different controller card. That should resolve the problem.
