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.

Dell Power Edge 2900 - amber and Red A light on tape Drive


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. May also be a defective card inserted into your motherboard. Try isolating the problem by removing all components until you just have motherboard and power supply and see if it turns on.

CD won't eject from laptop


Open up a paperclip so you have a couple of inches of straight wire. Take the USB stick out if possible. Find the little hole on the cd tray and gently push the paperclip in there,straight in. With luck, it'll click, and the CD drawer will open a lilbit, enough that you can grab it and gently pull it out. Do what you need to do, then close the drawer and put the USB stick back.
The keyword here is GENTLY, use only as much force as you must to get the drawer open. Be careful, but they're made with this unlocking feature for a reason. Good luck!

Flashing PC/Activity light


Yes. I've put a piece of tape over it, so that the blinking is less annoying.

When i try to use my camcorder there's a flashing light with the eject symbol and it wont record or let me use the video


Flashing eject sign error appears when camcorder got problem in its mechanism, please put another tape and check.
Remove battery from camcorder for couple of minutes, put battery back and try.
Also observe does tape reels turns reverse and forward when tape loaded in mechanism.
If problem still exist, qualified camera tech will fix it because it is not user level repair.

Flashing tape!


this is because there is lot of condensation taken place inside.. so keep the eject tray open and most important in a clean dry place say atleast 3 to 4 days...

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.

C:32:11 message flashes, cassette eject won't work, camera doesn't work


Just had this problem myself... called Sony. Here is what I did to fix this:

1. Turn off power
2. Open the LCD Display
3. Press "Reset" with paperclip/pen
4. Unplug ANY wires connected to the camcorder
5. Eject battery
6. Plug in DC charger
7. Power on
8. Attempt to eject tape
9. At this point, the metal tape holder comes out but refuses to open... slightly "close" the portion of the camcorder that has the button to eject the tape, and then open it fully again (you'll hear a click, this signals the device that the 'hatch' is open and to eject).
10. The metal door *should* pop out and allow you to withdraw the tape.

I've tried 4 different cassettes and about 2 seconds after hitting play, I get the error every time... my solution: Not going to try to play my tapes on the camcorder anymore... will find another player to play Hi8 MP cassettes. Unknown if able to record to tape as of yet.
