SS,

I think a hardware engineer should come and replace it, if you want to replace it just search the manual for it may help.

Better you log a hardware case.

Thank you Kapil, Asif and Dennis for responding to my query.
As Kapil said i browsed and found the manual to replace the HP StorageWorks Array DAT72 tape drive.
Now i am familiar with the steps to do to replace the drive.

I am attaching the manual for anyone who want to know the steps.

Many thanks.
