SOURCE: 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?

How to Clean a Travan 40


<p>Travan 40 tape drive, manufactured by the leading data storage and backup device manufacturer Quantum, uses the tape storage business to 40 gigabytes of data. It can be installed on any Windows computer, and works as an additional unit similar to a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. Like a tape of age, Travan 40 used with the recording heads for data storage on tape. These heads have to be cleaned, and Quantum recommends using a cleaning tape.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer. Remove the cleaning cartridge of your case.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Insert the cleaning cartridge into the Travan 40 drive, with the metal plate down. Gently push the drive mechanism that pulls and keeps everything in the device.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look at the LED on the drive Travan, should stop blinking and turns off in about 8 seconds. Note that the LED will remain on the cartridge is used more often than not meant to be used and, if so, remove it and put a new cleaning cartridge.<br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Slide the unit Eject button and hold and pull the exposed sides of the car once the disc is ejected.<br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Record the date on the label of the cleaning cartridge with a marker pen so you can track when your Travan 40 drive yet again and how often you use the cartridge.<br /> <p><br /> <p>6. The return of the cartridge cleaning your plastic box.<br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Repeat the process of cleaning every week if your drive Travan more than 3 hours per day, or every month if you use it with less than 3 hours per day. Clean it twice if you have your computer in an area with a large amount of dust, like a room without air conditioning or a warehouse.<br />

VHS tape is running at high speed when insert it to VCR. no playback..buttons doesnot work.


Check if the fast forward button is more inside than the rest of the buttons. May be its stuck in the ff position. After all they were just micro switches below the plastic buttons strip. The specific ff micro switch may be stuck, if I were you I would try some switch cleaning spray to loosen it. But be prepared that the control ic is busted.

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

I have hp surestore DLT1e drive. Tape cartridge stuck!


For that you can try to press and hold the eject buttonfor 30 seconds if the tape doesn't came out then reflash the drive firmware revision.
After all that is the issue persists you can try to:
manually remove the tape by removing the top cover
Locate recessed thumb wheel
Rotate thumb wheel counter-clockwise until you feel resistance. Wheel may spring back when you release it. This is OK.
Locate hole in bottom of drive. Insert #10 Torx driver and rotate clockwise until tape ejects. If there is a lot of tape on the take up reel, this could take some time.
Rotate thumb wheel clockwise to eject the tape.

I have a Canon Elura 65 mini DV camcorder. When I


I had this problem and I only ejected a cassette. I tried new and old cassettes. Same result as you experienced.
What I did and I again don't condone striking electronics as a means to repair them but, at the advice of another post and having tried everything I could think of, I stuck the bottom of the camcorder with the palm of my hand several times and it worked. I don't know why it worked and it really shouldn't have but it did.
I think the real problem is a cleaning/lubrication and ultimately should see service by a local trusted shop. Try it I had nothing to lose and it worked for me.....

VCR continually tries to eject the tape after it is inserted


If you have cleaned the head with a good head cleaner and you are still having a problem...the belt is probably worn. A good head clean should fix the problem.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
