How to read a damaged tape

I have a SLR 100 tape drive (SCSI interface) and a tape cartridge with
4 files.

The first file is damaged so I cannot mt fsf over that file to read
the others.

Is there a secret way to to advance the tape by a certain number of
meters, or by a certain number of seconds or something. I know I would
end up at a random position in the middle of a file, but at least I
could fast forward over the damaged file.

Best regards,
