Sony Recommends that the print head be cleaned after every 25-50 sheets of paper. It is also recommended to use "Canned Air" and blow out any dust or dirt inside the printer.
If you experiencing "Lines" on your photos... This is usually caused by a blocked or defective pixel. If dust or dirt is on the print head, it will block the pixel in that area and stop it from printing which causes a "LINE". You may have to clean the head multiple times in order to clear the blockage.
