Possible bad or wrong media type. You must be using DLTtape VS1 cartridges for write capability.

You also need to visually inspect the drive to make sure the leader is attached to the buckling arm. The "leader" is the ~10 piece of reinforced tape that is permanently attached to the take-up reel in the drive. It threads around the rollers, past the head, and is held in place by the buckling arm and is visable by using a flashlight and looking into the drive from the front. The leader tip is in the shape of a rounded arrowhead and is what physically hooks to the media in your VS1 cartridge. If the leader isn't there you'll need to send the drive into Quantum for repair.

If this is the case, you likely have a damaged piece of media in your pool that you must find, as this tape will cause the same "damage" on your next drive, causing the drive to "swallow the leader". Quantum has a Media Inspection PDF file on their site...use it, as it will save you time and $$$ the moment you find a single piece of "bad media".

As a side note, most media makers offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty and will replace bad media at no cost (other than shipping) to you.

Rear tail light will not turn off


It's your brake release switch. When you brake you are releasing a button that allows lights to come on. When the little piece breaks off lights stays on. Get electrical tape and tape two stacked nickels tight and neat. Then tape that between brake pedal and button. You should see a little plate sticking out on pedal. The button faces this plate. Watch your fingers.

Tail lights do not extinguish on my 95 talon


Get a hammer...no just kidding. Look into your brake light switch and it's adjustment. Pull the wires off and see if lights go out. if so, investigate adjustment or switch function.

2005 hyundai Accent, can't shift out of park and no brake lights


may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.

Both Fault and Clean lights are on


It is nearly impossible to make a guess about a hardware fault without any additional information. The most common problem I know of though, is using a cleaning tape too many times. After about 2o uses, they pretty much don't clean anymore. If it's possible that you think you're cleaning the heads, but using too old of a cleaning tape, you may want to replace it. Otherwise, a hardware fault will have to be looked at internally.

there are 2 causes why your camcorder is eating up the tapes; either the tape head is dirty or there is a mechanical fault inside your unit (something might be misaligned that causes the film to be sucked in).

try to clean the tape head of your unit by using a tape head cleaner, it is like the tapes that you use with the unit but instead of a film there is a cloth like material inside that is used to clean the tape heads to avoid the film sticking to it

if the issue still persists then you should contact your manufacturer and set up a repair for the unit
