Interpreting the LED indicators
There are two LED (light-emitting diode) indicators on the
drive's front panel. The Cassette in Place (green) and Drive
Busy (amber) LEDs show the status of the drive:
Flashing rapidly On
A media warning, when the Cassette in Place (green) LED
flashes slowly, indicates that the tape may be becoming
unreliable, although at this point no data has been lost. First,
clean the tape head cylinder with a cleaning cassette, then try
the data cassette again. If the warning persists, copy the data
onto a new cassette and discard the old one.
A media warning can also indicate that a prerecorded audio
DAT cassette has been inserted by mistake.
Drive could not write to tape
If the Cassette in Place (green) LED flashes rapidly, this means
that the drive could not write to the tape correctly, and
indicates that the tape has become unreliable. Remove the
cassette and use another.
