Quantum SDLT 600 Tape Drive

The backups have been going through no problem until recently.  Now whenever I put a tape in the drive it immediately ejects it.  Backups failing with 'No Media Found'.  I've tried multiple tapes.  Nothing out of the ordinary is appearing in the event viewer.

Any ideas?

If power cycling of tape drive will not help, drive is probably broken :(
