I had/have a similar problem with a SONY SDX-700C.
Emailed Sony tech support (very helpful) who suggested sending them the diagnostics from their TapeTool utility (qv). They then recommended running the cleaning tape 3 times, which seems to get it working (but the 'clean me' light still comes on every 7-10 backups). Hope this helps.

I have a Quantum CL1105 8 slot autoloader (LTO3) and using Bakbone Netvault backup software. I can use HP or Tandberg brand cartridges successfully but if I use Imation or Sony brand cartridges the backups...


Mixing brands can be an issue because different brands might use different lubricants on the tape it self.  I would check with the vendor - are are you positive you are using the excact same LTO version?

Lib-152E autoloader no longer recognized after firmware update.


Try taking the dives out, connecting each one to your SCSI card and updating the firmware - wait at least 10 minutes afet Tape Tools says you can now use it again! This last bit is very important! Then, after you have done the update to each drive, replace the drives and try again.
I had the same problem with a TSL-SA500C and it woked fr me.

Please perform a erase operation and check if the drive does it, If its not then go ahead and check the SCSI controller if you have a spare one replace it.

SONY LIB-81 Error on LCD screen - Drive Information 51


I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair
