There may be several reasons for this, - the unit may not be pulling the tape through the transport mechanism because of tape binding in the cassette. Or there could be excessive oxides built up on the captstan. If you can, remove old tape and try a new one. In either case, you should get unit cleaned and checked by a qualified tech.

I am trying to turn on the ps3 and shows the red light, when i push it changes to green for a couple seconds and goes back to red again any ideas?


Hi Ponchin,
Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?
If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.
Why Does It Happen?
The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.
How To Fix?
The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.
Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!
Other Ways To Fix?
You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.
Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

I was trying to backup my server while exchanging DLT tapes, the tape in use light stayed on and the serve would then alternate to four flashing lights and then back to flashing "Tape In Use...


Hello,


Try the following action to resovle your issue:


1. Run the Drive Assessment Test in HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools.

CAUTION: Running the Drive Assessment Test overwrites the tape. If it is not possible to

overwrite the tape, run the logs-based Device Analysis Test instead.
2. Check the backup logs.

3. Verify that a supported configuration is being used.

4. Check for media damage:

o Incorrect label placement

o Broken, missing, or loose leader pin

o Damaged cartridge seam

o Usage in incorrect environment

5. Check for software issues:

a. Check the backup software.

b. Check that virus scanning software is not scheduled to run at the same time as the back-up.

6. Verify that a tape can be formatted.



Tape Error LED is flashing:

1. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.

2. Load a new or known good tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.

3. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED flashes, discard the suspect media as faulty.

From my experience, most of the time it is a bad tape, using a new tape usually solves the problem. If after inserting a new tape and the problem exist, you may need to update your firmware/backup software.

Good Luck
