HP C1553A

I have a c1553a autoloader and Im now getting an error code of 46 on the LCD panel. Does anyone know what that code means and the solution to its problem.

Re: HP C1553A

Error 46 can be displayed if the magazine is stopped in a wrong position on the turntable.

The HP diagnostic tool has a specific test to recover from this condition.

Run HP LTT (, go the 'Utilities' menu, select 'Run Script' and then select the 'al46_recoveryscript.ssc' script file, check the checkbox next to your tape drive and select 'run'.
