HP is one of a very small handful of vendors that actually make some of 
their own tape drives.  If its not an HP internally, its probably a 
Quantum (who bought Seagate's Tape division, which was formerly Archive)

Tape autoloaders are one of those things that really REALLY should be 
kept on service contracts....  if it was covered, there'd be a tech 
there next day either fixing or replacing it.

(reminding me that I have a HP 1/8 LTO2 autoloader in my dev lab at work 
which has fallen off warranty)
