The manual is online with IBM.
Chapter 8 explains the error codes and 9F (mean Error code) means Rotation range out of specification 08 9sub error code) means error during rotation initialisation, get range failed.
Then the manual says: "Isolating a library controller card versus accessor enclosure problem" on page 7-11
But I guess you better look it up yourself. If you don't have any parts, you have to contact IBM.
Look yourself? start in chapter 8, page 225 of the manual under this link. http://publibfp.dhe.ibm.com/epubs/pdf/a320545c.pdf
You will not find the list of the error codes on the internet. I know that Error Code: 0x81 is a "Reel" problem as I was just told by Sony Support. You should call them, have you serial number at hand when you do so. Check http://sony.storagesupport.com/ for a Telephone contact number.
Error Code A0 - Error occurred during carousel movement (Position Not Found). Could be caused by a missing or misaligned cartridge carrier, or an obstruction, or unexpected cartridge in either the carousel path or Import/Export slot.
Remove the power cable and SCSI cables then try open the top cover. Check and see if there are any tape blocking or obstructing the movement. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. I have 5 of these devices, few of them were replaced as its not working anymore due to these codes and as they are pretty obsolete, its not worth to repair them anymore.
never asked about error "5". The error "BB" indicated there is a hardware issue relating to the unload process. You can find your answer here... http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ssg1S7000920&aid=1
power on the library, follow the display in the front panel. The library will do some checks. Note where it fails. Press the select button, it will display the some code message. With the error code refer the manual.
