Is it possible to post a screenshot of what you see. What is the version of Backup Exec. Also, are you able to select the data in a restore job? If yes, have you tried restoring this yet?

. Yellog sign generaly shows up if there is issue with the catalogs. Please run the catalogs again and try a restore.

You may also want to try to duplicate the backup set from tape to disk. Then see if your able to browsing down through the backup set. 

I hope this posting was helpful

Is the date range filter set far enough back?

I don't thing date range is a issue here as he is able to see the backup sets in the restore window.
