Notice Stp:SCSI tape 0 device 46/0 offline

My computer which uses scoUNIX, has an internal scsi tape backup. It will
no longer backup . It posts this message Notice :Stp tape 0 device 46/0
offline. This has been discussed before by the forum and I'd appreciate any
help that any expert could provide for me for a step wise approach to troubleshoot this problem. I've rebooted the computer,checked the connections as best I could and the problem. persists. Am I missing a possible essential connection to check or is my tapedrive shot. Thanks in advance for your indulgence for an techno neophyte. Hardware support for my system is difficult to find as the company that sold it was bought and left the area and the local computer people don't seem to know about
my system.

tcopy - copy a magnetic tape SYNOPSIS
tcopy source [destination] DESCRIPTION
The tcopy utility copies the magnetic tape mounted on the tape drive specified by the source argument. The only assumption made about the contents of a tape is that there are two tape marks at the end. When only a source drive is specified, tcopy scans the tape, and displays information about the sizes of records and tape files. If a des- tination is specified, tcopy makes a copies the source tape onto the destination tape, with blocking preserved. As it copies, tcopy pro- duces the same output as it does when only scanning a tape. The tcopy utility requires the use of Berkeley-compatible device names. For example, example% tcopy /dev/rmt/1b /dev/rmt/2b ATTRIBUTES
