Failed to detect hardstop

I have problem with autoloader 1/9 DLT8000

The messages error is:
Failed to perform an inventary check. Plunge Control System failed to detect a hardstop.

I maked a power off of the autoloader and Power cycle the unit and retry unloading the tape from the autoloader front panel, but the problem persist.

The second error is:
Failed to unload tape form drive. Drive module failed to eject tape.

I maked a power off of autolodaer and unload manually from the drive, but problem persist.

Third error:
Plunge control system fialed to detect a hardstop. Failed Rezero.

Anybody help me please.

Re: Failed to detect hardstop

Edgar,

If you could install HP Library & Tape Tools (www.hp.com/support/tapetools) and generate a support ticket for the autoloader (support tool -> Save support ticket to file). Then post the support ticket here.

You said you manually removed the stuck tape, but the problem persists. Does that mean that a second tape is now stuck?

Re: Failed to detect hardstop

now my problem is that the transport don´t take a tape to move to drive, and you need power off the tape three times to set online.

And the error messages continue diplaying on the scree

Collect an LTT support ticket, and then we can review the error logs and provide some suggestions.
