Keep your cassettes well away from magnetic objects, and
equipment that generates magnetic fields. Avoid extremes of
temperature and exposure to direct sunlight; otherwise, the data
recorded on the tape may become corrupted
Cleaning the drive
The read/write heads in the tape drive are protected during
normal operation by a built-in cleaning roller. In addition, a
special cleaning cassette, HP 92283K is available from your
supplier. This cassette should be used:
When you insert the cleaning cassette, the drive recognises it as
a cleaning cassette, runs it for about 30 seconds, then ejects it
automatically. Each time the cleaning cassette is used the tape
advances over an unused portion of the tape. If the drive ejects
the cleaning cassette immediately after you insert it, this means
that the entire tape has been used and a new cleaning cassette is
required. You cannot rewind a cleaning cassette.
Do not attempt to use an ordinary audio DAT cleaning cassette.
The drive will be unable to recognise it as a cleaning cassette.
After the first 4 hours of tape movement of a new cassette.
Every 25 operating hours.
When the Media Caution signal is displayed.
