Issues with DLT7000 and TTL

recently I updated my Compaq TH6EA-HK to firmware V109/CPQ-1 and since then the write-protected light became always on whenever a tape is loaded. I have tried to go back to the previous V097 but I cannot since the selectable says downgrading, need password, and I do not know where to add/find said password.

No other frm works since they are all marked as wrong personality.

Can anyone help me please??

Re: Issues with DLT7000 and TTL

Are you asking about LTT (library and tape tools)?

Please tell me the use of a password if you can find it anywhere on the internet?

You have to call HP support. They can give you a temp password to enable the FW downgrade. You should also consider to ask them about your problem.

Hope this helps!
