Run a search on Dell for the this model. Dell uses Tandberg drives so check tandbergdata.com as well.

Chapter 6. Examine the tapes before inserting them into any drive or robotic environment to make sure the leader pin is present and properly clipped in (page 13).

When i run my backup i get a number 6 with a flashing anber light

See Table 13 and 15.

The '6' means the drive detected a drive or media error. With only the Single Character Display it can't get specific. Follow the directions except I would highly recommend you run a Clean Cart first.

Handle your media carefully and keep them from experiencing any changes in temperature or humidity, say, on that trip to Iron Mountain. Alway open the slide door on the cartridge to examine the leader's proper positon before you use the tape or especially before you introduce it into any robotic environment. Dropped tapes will jam in or kill tape drives, always in the middle of the night. An ounce of prevention.

Tape head dirty error after cleaning tape heads with tape cleaning cartridge


Hello, just a guess, but maybe you're using an old cleaning tape that has no more cleaning cycles left in it. Can I suggest you try a brand-new cleaning tape?

Tape does not lock in, message 6 on red screen


Set for any unrecoverable write or
positioning error where isolation is
uncertain and failure could be due to
a faulty tape cartridge or to faulty
drive hardware.

clean the drive with a clean tape, change a new data tape and try again. if you recycle the drv, the alert will disappear.

Tape did not eject


if the tape can not eject by press the button, you can only unload it manually, but you'd better ask an expert to do it, such as me, haha.

Using SDLT cleaning Tape


When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Tape eject from drive


Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.


Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?
