Cleaning cartridges do not actually 'clean' the head, they moove dirt from the surface of the head into small channels, therefore if the tape drive is asking for more than one clean in a row you either have a faulty head, or it needs to be taken to a pro fix shop for manual cleaning. drives should not need more than one clean every few months.

Because the DAT72 can copy 72GB with 2:1 compressed, and it's native capability is 36GB in the most. So you can try to copy less than 30GB data to it or try to enable the drive's compress mode.

HP Tape Library Maintenance


Do Not clean the tape drives in a HP tape library unless and until the cleaning LED blinks. It is strictly recommended by HP.
Also do not fill all the slots with media, always leave 2 slots free apart from the male slots. This helps to avoid media struck in the library.

Hp psc all in one-scanning stops abruptly.


I had the same experiences before.

What I always do is I unplug the scanner's usb cable and then switch usb ports till i find which port it will work.

In some cases this solution didn't work, I replace the usb cable with a new one. I always buy usb 2.0 compliant cable.

Cleaning light always on


Hi,

Perform the cleaning action using a new cleaning tape. It is not recommended to clean the tape over and over again, if the cleaning light is still ON. Contact the vendor and get it sorted out.

Please coem back and rate the solution if this turns to be helpful for you.
Thnx

Wont accept cleaning tape


Make sure there are no pending jobs on the drive, if the drive is expecting a tape and gets a cleaning tape it will spit it out. Also, has the cleaning tape been used a lot? They have a limited life cycle and if they have exceeded their max uses they may not work.

Constant Cleaning of new PowerVault 100T DAT72


Tape drives do need cleaning frequently and the 'auto clean' facility may not be enough. The problem is the continuous shedding of oxide needs cleaning right off and the auto system may not be enough. What you need is a back-up Drive. and the out of service drive needs physically stripping down to clean all off using a soft brush and where appropriate coproponal alcohol
