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 ts3200 tape library default service password


You will need to contact IBM support and after providing proper I.D. verification , they should be able to give you a password which you will be able to use. Due to security issues with stored info, you will have to provide the proper ID info as the original purchaser. Best Wishes

IBM TS3200 tape Library error code 9E 09 Hi There


OK if you are in the UK then defiantly try going to http://tape-drive-repair.com/ for them to help as these can be a pain to seat the picker correctly and you might well need parts anyway.

However if you are in the US and are unable to do that:-
Dissconnect the power.
Gently raise and lower the picker by hand and again check for any obstructions.
Sometimes the picker comes off its rails or skips a gear.
You can also try raising the picker to the very top before lowering again - make sure the picker is totally level when it returns to the bottom.
This is the same unit (in effect) as the dell TS4000 so that might also give you another search term when googling the issue.
These units are great libraries but you must be very gentle with them when doing this sort of procedure as it is easy to bend and break things.
Also make sure the library is totally square in the Rack - i have one unit where the customer had one corner 1U too low in the rack but the library had still managed to be screwed into the rack. Because the library was no longer square, things started to jam and fail to pick tapes. Once square again all was well.

Robotic hardware error and I/O station status shows open


A physical obstruction in the path of the robot's motion. Examples
include tape cartridges that are extending from the picker assembly or
from a storage location, as well as tape cartridges or debris that may
have collected on the floor of the library.
2. A large number of electrical hardware failures. Firmware or hardware
detects that motion control is not occurring properly (encoder issues,
motor driving circuits, motor winding issues, etc.)
3. A relatively small number of mechanical hardware failures that do not
result in the detection of a complete obstruction, but where motion
control generates robotics firmware error codes (contamination or damage
to encoder wheel, high friction, etc.).


Possible FRUs is Robot Assembly

Web user interface timeout please log in again message over and over even after I log out and try to log back in


This may be caused by a bus level communication problem, try a restart. Power down the computer, power down the library, power up the library, wait for the library to finish initialization and verify from the control panel it is in an online/ready state, power up the computer.
