Tape media eject

You might be using the wrong type of media in the drive. Make sure you are only using DDS4 or DDS3 tapes in the drive.

If you are using the right media type then try a cleaning tape and then a brand new data tape.

If you are still having issues the go to who have these in stock at very low prices. Since these units are so inexpensive now it seem false economy to waste too much time fixing them.

How do I get my Dell Powervault 120T DLT7000 tape drive out of 'service mode' ?

If the drive automatically ejects tapes every time they are loaded then the problem is probably a lost leader and in which case it will have to be opened up to fix.

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.

Tape jammed. How can it be manually ejected?

Most or all robotic librarys must have the cover removed.  There is not "automatic" way to unjam the tape picker.

Unit in-op

When you first power the unit on, it performs its power-on self-test for about 30 seconds. When the tape drive is ready, the top LED turns off.

If you attempt to insert a cartridge into the
tape drive during the power-on self-test, the tape drive will eject the cartridge.

So, as long as it works after a few minutes, the unit is fine.

Tape Ejects after little time

Yeah this isnt caused by the Tape I have had an issue way back with my tape driver as well and it was an internal mechanical malfunction, the gears that hold the tape in position push the tape internally on its gears and read / copy data but when it no longer is aligned with the gears it just keeps spinnning and eventually ejects automatically. Unfortunately I didnt open it up and fix but I was able to send it back to the Manufacturer and mine had 5 year warranty and they fixed it.Im new on here so if my solution helped you please give some good feedback on my answer thank you

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?

Same problem with Backup Exec 10d and Superloader 3 LTO-3.
This is not my first problem with this Superloader. I think it is garbage and will likely be in the garbage very soon. Very expensive garbage unfortunately.

Try holding the eject button down, for a long time, about 20 seconds (1 and 2 and ). This resets the tape drive, the lights on the front should go off, then come back on again. The tape will either eject automatically or will eject after the button is pressed normally.
The only time this dosen't work is if the tape is still out inside the drive.
