If a head is bad Self-Scan will fail.

Try to depopulate the bad head first by disabling it or run ARCO (if you can) selecting the heads you want to switch off.

If you run Self-Scan and one head is gone you will reach the limit that the P-List can take for defects on that damaged head/surface and SS will fail. SS will not switch off the damaged head. ARCO can do that.

You might be better off with something like WDMarvel for this task. I did never use MRT to do this so i don't have a clue ...
