Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. Feel free to disregard the Premium Service Offer for Remote Support. That is an automated popup initiated by the web site. There is a good possibility the heads need to be cleaned. Have you had it serviced recently?

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
No, where could I have that done?
Expert:  Dan replied 25 days ago.

Is the model an XR or ZR850?

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
ZR 850
Expert:  Dan replied 25 days ago.

You could try a head cleaning tape first. It might be a little cheaper?

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
Oh, yeah, I will definitely look into that right away.
Expert:  Dan replied 25 days ago.

Give me a minute and I will send you a link to where you can purchase one.

Expert:  Dan replied 25 days ago.

Check this LINK. You can purchase one from Amazon.
