I'm afraid your drive has broken.
Looks like a tape leader problem, that means nothing to you if you ever haven't opened a DLT before.

Try to power cycle your drive. If it still fails call your HW service support.

And now, if you have identified the problem as a dropped Leader, And your unit is not anymore on warranty, then read the following link to reattach the leader, just rtemember to not touch the leader with your hands
