Hello,

Error code 33H is the following:

Error code 33H: Invalid configuration to run this test - This error does not indicate a problem with the library. When this error occurs the user requested a diagnostic test that required a certain starting configuration which was not met. An example would be running the unload drive test
without a tape in the drive.

HTH,

When i run unload drive test without drive into library, displayed always the error hardware 33h INVALID_CONFIG.

I run the RESTORE DEFAULTS, and the LOAD/unload TEST and fail again.

The drive looks busy but not there are any cartridge into the library.

Hy guys,

I was reading these messages and I'm having a problem on the same kind of equipment... The problem here is that my tape is stuck on this tape driver and the message I get is:

HARDWARE ERR 35h
EXERCISE_TEST_FA
FRU1 0
FRU2 0
FRU3 0
MOTION MOVE
SOURCE 1
DESTINATION1 37
DESTINATION2 0

ERROR HIST 1 24h
ERROR HIST 2 24h
ERROR HIST 3 6Eh
ERROR HIST 4 24h
ERROR HIST 5 24h
ERROR HIST 6 6Eh
ERROR COUNT 0

Any of you have any idea what it means and how can I remove this tape from the driver?

I tried to unload, rewind, etc but nothing works on it...

Thanks in advance,
Andr??.

Re: Problem with HP DLT 7000 1/8

Because you removed the tape yourself the cartridge door of the drive is probably not in its default position (which is closed after a power up). See if you can activate close drive door from the menu to close the door, eventually do it by hand. Try it.
