Epson SureColor T3170 Print Quality

If your print quality declines, you may need to run a utility to clean or align the print head. If running these utilities does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the ink cartridges.

Epson SureColor T3170 Print Head Maintenance

If your printouts become too light, or you see dark or light bands across them, you may need to clean the print head nozzles. Cleaning uses ink, so clean the nozzles only if print quality declines. You can check for clogged nozzles before you clean them so you don’t clean them unnecessarily.
