DAT72 SW loading cartridge problem

I have a dat72 in a ML350 G5 proliant server.
After a much use, my type drive don't load the cartridge. When I push the cartridge, tape drive remains within the front light blinksing slowly. After, the light begins to blink rapidly, and I can hear internal movements, but the light remains blinking rapidly forever.
Can somebody help me please. I can't get a solution.

Try recycling power to the tape drive & replacing the cartridge with a new one. If it doesnt work, maybe you have a bad drive.

Hi,

try to use a good cleaning catridge in the drive or run a assesment test from Library & Tape tools, follow the instructions through the test and check if the test passes
