You're showing your age - "dirty heads" is a tape term, sometimes used  
for floppy drives. :-)

As was mentioned here the best solution is partial disassembly and a  
careful manual cleaning of the laser lens.

If you are  not up for that, the cleaning disks have been used by  
folks with some success, I'd try and get one from a reputable maker,  
not "brand-X".



But also:


But you don't have much to lose if the drives are dead now :-)
