Eject lto5


in the manual should be something like this:

Manually Removing a Tape Cartridge
If problem-determination procedures identify the tape drive as the source of the problem and you are unable to eject the tape cartridge using the eject button, reset the drive to recover the cartridge:
Press and hold the eject button for 10 seconds, then release.
The status light turns amber and the drive starts through its hardware test process.
When the hardware test completes, the status light turns green.
If a cartridge is in the drive the status light flashes green until the cartridge is rewound.
The status light turns solid green when the rewind is complete and the tape drive is ready.

Although it is from an older LTO version, it must work on the newer versions too.

I also did remove tapes, if nothing worked, but it is to much to tell and show here.
NOTE: Allow at least 10 minutes for the rewind process to complete.

Failing to recognize tapes in Sun StorageTek C2 tape library


Are you seeing a cleaning light or is it just ejecting the tapes? If it is ejecting them then make sure to try a brand new tape of the right type (if it is the wrong tape type it will eject).
Also try a cleaning tape if the cleaning light is on.
If that does not work then you will need to send in the tape drive somewhere for repair as the head might be worn out or the drive needs a good service.
Try going to http://tape-drive-repair.com who sell and repair these units. The LTO2 and LTO3 drives are pretty inexpensive now and so this should be fairly cheap to have sorted.
Also this unit is the same as the Quantum superloader3 so that might help if you are still googling for a solution

Quantum cl1002 Unable to enject the drive.at the moment Power light is sold, and active and status light is flashing. any advice will be awsome.


power down the computer and then the drive, disconnect the drive from the computer, and then power up the drive. If it still fails to eject, power down the drive again and this time power up while holding the eject button.

Tape won't eject


Soft power the unit down and very carefully unscrew the cover. The greatest care must be when taking the tape out so that you don't bend the unit.

Consider blowing it out to get rid of dust and it very likely has a problem that will require service. My quantum px502 had a stuck tape and I took the cover off but the picker was already off track - $700 to fix that and replace a sensor.

Consider a maintenance contract as on visit to the repair shop will cost hundreds of dollars.  And, if you get the tape out another will likely stick soon.  So service will be necessary.

Tape not ejecting from drive after 60 secs pressing eject button. I can hear it 'clicking' but no attempt to eject the tape is made. I would be very grateful for some advice regarding what I might do next.


can you detail the model No or compaq spares No for the drive - the clicking makes it sound to me like a DAT but unable to proceed without more info.

If it is a DAT (compaq used both Sony and HP mechs) try disconnecting the scsi cable from the scsi card, rebooting the drive and trying again.

If that doesnt work try a 00pt screwdriver in the manual eject point of the drive and unload manually (about 1000 turns!)

Failing that try www.tape-drive-repair.com as they are pretty good price wise for a repair / exchange

Cleaning tape - how often should this be done?


You only need to use the cleaning tape when the amber light indicators!
There is no need to use it everytime you use different tapes, just when the light indicators will do as you can only use cleaning tape a certain number of times before replacing it.

My Drive will not eject the tape


Turn off the tape drive. (Switch in the back of the unit. Wait 2 minutes and then turn unit back on. Tape drive should issue a write data command and then rewind the tape. After rewind completes the tape should eject. If it does not eject after rrewind completes than try holding the eject button for 5 seconds to attempt a "force eject"

Note: Do not repeatedly press the eject button as this can cause damage to the tape and the tape drive.
