    Does tape refer to adhesive tape here?
    If so, you could say J'ai mis du ruban adhésif dessus, parce qu'il/elle ne marchait pas.
    In common language, most of the French people would say J'ai mis du scotch dessus (Scotch™ is a famous trademark of glue and adhesive tape in France, and became a noun like hoover in English).
