Re: tape stuck in machine lights blinking and does not initialise

You have a bad tape. The tape causes the leader to be lost , to where the d-ring of the tape cannot be wound through the tape device. Replacing the tape will not fix your issue only prevent it from happining agian, intill another tape goes bad. To fix the issue you must restring the leader inside your dlt drive . REMBER to do away with that tape.

I had a similar problem, but how do you 'restring the leader' inside the dlt drive!!!

If the tape is stuck and I am unable to eject the tape from the drive, how would I go about in order to re-string ? Please explain the restring part.
