Manual Rewind of Stuck Tape in HP 2/20 Tape Library


The problem I am currently facing is that I have a Tape stuck inside a DLT drive Module and I want to rewind it. I have followed the instructions for rewinding a stuck tape in the User's manual. I have tried inserting a screwdriver in the Rewind Hole on the DLT Drive Module and manually turning it to rewind the tape. But it does not seem to be working as the Tape Roller is not moving.

Would like to know if anyone in this forum knows of an alternative method for rewinding the tape instead of using the screwdriver to manually rewind the tape?

Best Regards
