Surestore DLT 8000- Overforce in plunger

Hi, I have a HP Surestore Tape Autoloader 1/9 DLT 8000 and I was running some diagnostic checks and came upon this error: "overforce in plunger mechanism".

Please provide some suggestions to fix this problem.

Thanks for your help.

PLUNGER MECHANIism is the part of the robotic that insert and get cartridges out of magazine or tape.

I would first remove all cartriges by hand, check if there is anythink on the plunge path.
You can then run some test from the front mennu related to mechanicals parts of the library, the first one would be "recalibrate library"

Hi. I have a HP Surestore Tape Autoloader 1/9 DLT 1 at home that shows the same problem. I allready tried to run the "recalibrate library" test, but it failed the 3 times I tried it.
Is there another thing that I can do before call to HP support?
