MSL4048 "MECHANICAL BLOCK" amber light error

I have powered off and on but the error message "MECHANICAL BLOCK" is still
persisting so we are unable to use the MSL4048 tape library.


Please help !

Carefully pull the magazines and even the drive to inspect what is going on.


In case of doubt call HP, if the issue is a broken robot, the chassis must be replaced.



BTW, i have seen people putting the booklet of a tape inside the magazine by accident multiple times, this is causing strange errors.

Hope this helps!
