I had the same issue with my 122T...I had our electrical guy take a look at the power supply and he found that a fuse had blown. There are three fuses on the back two normal glass ones and another that was wrapped in rubber. It was the one wrapped in rubber that blew but you couldn't tell by looking at it. Why they would wrap it I have no idea. The fuses are soldiered into the board on the power supply so it may be tricky to replace that. My coworker told me he found someone seller replacement parts on eBay. If the unit is under warranty dell will replace it in total. Unfortunately I have had to replace my companies Power Vault 122T about eight times. Hope this helps!

Our dell powervault 122t shows error code A0

Error Code A0 - Error occurred during carousel movement (Position Not Found). Could be caused by a missing or misaligned cartridge carrier, or an obstruction, or unexpected cartridge in either the carousel path or Import/Export slot.

Remove the power cable and SCSI cables then try open the top cover. Check and see if there are any tape blocking or obstructing the movement. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. I have 5 of these devices, few of them were replaced as its not working anymore due to these codes and as they are pretty obsolete, its not worth to repair them anymore.
