HP StorageWork DLT VS80 not working & can't backup

I have a HP Proliant ML350 G3 server with HP DLT VS80 tape drive (Internal) running on  Server 2003 Std. Starting on last Friday 19th of April morning, I not able to perform backup for my server and tapeware show me an error. Checked on event log to show me tape drive goes offline.

 

Server restart couple times still the same even I have had change the new DLT VS80 tape drive also same problem - offline. I don't think the SCSI cable has bad contact because tape drive can be detect in Bios & device manager.

 

Please help and advice.

Most likely this very old tape drive has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps!
