When there is a tape in the tape drive and there is no job running, then there is a hardware problem. Run the tape manufacturer's diagnostic utility against the tape library/drive.  Make sure you select the write test and that you have stopped all the BE services beforehand.  If there is a test failure, contact the hardware vendor

1. Do you have tapes that can either be overwritten or appended too? If not, check your Append/OPP settings on your media sets and then check at the next backup.

2. respond to any alerts on the media server if present.

Thanks!
