If issue persists try to reflash the frimware revision with HP diagnostic tool LTT.

My jvc camcorder shows me a message that my unit is on safeguard mode


E04 is the only one that a consumer can try to rid. This error normally is the fault of a bad tape. I recommend removing battery and HOLD DOWN EJECT, while reconnecting battery so its the first command camera sees. if tapes eject, try a new tape.

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.

Tapes on dlt v4 tape drive shows write protected even though they are not


Hi Amit, Several things might cause this.

Hardware wise, the write protect switch may be broken in the tape drive. (two finger switches / levers to the side of the cartridge)

This is likely if you have just manually ejected a tape with a screw driver (not recommended).

However there are also software issues that could cause this. For instance Backup Exec could have been asked to prevent overwrite for 12 months. This is totally software based and is NOT dependent on the WP switch.

My top guess is that the drive will need repair though as this can be a common fault.

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 www.tape-drive-repair.com 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.

Tape will not eject


I had the same problem and I switched to smaller tapes. I had been using the 120 minute tapes. It seemed like the tape would lock up after a short while with the larger tapes.

Tape stuck in drive


The best way that I have solved this is by using the move commands from the drive, and move it from drive to any free tape slot. Also if that does not work, put a few tapes in the drive and perform the random moves test in diagnostics, that will fool the drive to move the tape.

Replacing tapes


Hi,

if the back up job has completed it should eject or
you should be able to tell the software you are using for a back up to eject.
or there should be an eject botton on the front of your tape drive.

Good Luck

Tape drive does not recognize or eject tape


Yeah the Ultrium 4 tape drives only r/w to ULT3 and ULT4 tapes.

We put a Ultrium 2 tape in our 4 drive and it seems to be locked permanently.
