Ok I had this problem exactly. The way it broke as I found out was the tape drive... when you first insert a tape.
a: hooks a little pin to the tape and pulls it around a spinning reel inside the drive.
b: the tape had a slight.......slight bend in the pin on the beginning of the tape.
c: the pin in the drive barely caught the tape. As it is supposed to catch with both ends of the pins, but only one end caught.
d: this then pulled the tape out into the machine a inch or so and came undone.
e: then the reel inside the tape drive pulled the lead inside, rendering the drive useless!

I pondered it for a bit and decided to pull some tape out of the drive and hook it to the loose lead that had been pulled into the drum. It worked like a charm! Hooked up the power to the unit and it pulled in the tape around the inside drum.
I then ejected the tape nicely and won't use that particular tape anymore!

Make sure all the power is unhooked when working on this and make sure that the tape is fed by the heads properly before power is applied.
I was so thrilled that I fixed it, failed to take a picture...sorry.

It appears that you may have some board issues. Are these drives going into library's or being used as stand alone units? I need more info to better diagnose the issue.

Hardware failure. either drive leader is off or other mech fault ie. brake release is broken or head shield is not in place, causes a load jam.

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.

I have a Quantum SDLT 320 drive in a Dell 2800 server that has the yellow attention light stuck on. It is performing backups successfully in Veritas and giving no errors from Veritas or anywhere else. Can...


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

Check engine light flashing a code. what does this mean


Please visit http://www.troublecodes.net/neon/

for clarification of your error code. But I strongly believe you fixed a low rated fuel pump.

also from your explanation you got code 55 which means no error code was recorded.

Rate this please.

CAR LOOSES BOGS OUT AT HWY SPEEDS AND IDOLOS ROUGH .


Cycle your key on (not start, just on) off, on , off ,on, and leave it on. have paper & pen ready. Watch flashes from check engine light. It will flash quick, pause flash quick. It will be a 2 digit number each time. For example: flash, flash, short pause, flash, flash. is # 22. Flash, flash, flash, pause, flash ,flash,flash. is # 33. There will be a slightly longer pause between codes,(after every 2 digits) then next code starts. 2 numbers again. When you get 5 flashes, pause, 5 flashes = code # 55 means end of message. Check it out and let me/us know what you get.

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.
