Re: Autoloader 1/8 Robotic failure error Code B9C4

Hi, yes

the chassi spare part contains the robotics.
You can find more details about this in the service guide (looked quickly now and it looks like you keep the tape drive and replace the rest:)


See this for some extra help with the troubleshooting.


I could not find the same B9C4 error code in there that says "robotics failure".

But C4 might mean "Sled 5 movement to sensor during check on magazine type failed".

So I would check the magazine first before attempting to replace the robotics. Maybe a tape is stuck/has fallen out or something like that.. Firmware update. Run an inventory, etc.

the Error Code B9 is link with a communication problem on MSL G3 Libraries usually problems related with the Library Extender.

Do you have any device attached like a D2D?
