i don't know how to refill


Hi Good day!!!

1. Spread newspaper or paper towels on a table to create a workspace protected from spills and accidental leaks. Set the cartridge on this workspace.

2. Remove the label on top of the cartridge. Use a razor to peel up one corner, if necessary, then peel back the rest.

3. Fill the syringe from your refill kit with between five to 10 milliliters of ink. Match the ink to the color listed on the cartridge.

4. Insert the syringe needle into one of the holes on top of the cartridge. If there are no holes in the cartridge, you must create one. Use a thumb drill (also included in your refill kit) to punch a small hole through the plastic.

5. Insert the needle into the cartridge. Inject the refill ink into the cartridge until it is full. Ink will bubble up around the hole when the cartridge is full. Fill the cartridge slowly to avoid mistakes and spills.

6. Place the cartridge back into the printer. Wait at least a few hours before printing. Some refill kits recommend waiting 24 hours before using the printer. Print a test page when the cartridge is ready.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE INK .I BOUGHT THE INK BUT FOR GOT HOW TO PUT IT IN


In order to replace the ink..please follow the following steps

#1
Spread out a piece of newspaper where you plan to work. Remove the supplies from the refill kit. The Lexmark 44 will have one bottle of black ink, one thumb drill and one syringe. The Lexmark 43 will have one bottle each cyan, magenta and yellow, three syringes and one thumb drill.
#2
Remove the label from the ink cartridge. The black refill hole is at the top of the ink cartridge. Use a toothpick to check the color of each fill hole on the color ink cartridge. Generally, the magenta is at the top of the cartridge, the yellow is at the left center and the cyan is at the right center.
#3
Use the thumb drill to open up the fill hole to fit the syringe needle. Place the tip of the thumb drill on the fill hole and twist until the hole opens up larger. Do this for each color hole on the color ink cartridge.
#4
Fill each syringe with 7 ml of color ink (one for each color) and 15 ml of black ink. Insert the syringe needle into the bottle of ink and pull the plunger upwards.
#5
Place the tip of the syringe needle into the fill hole. Slowly press down on the plunger. If the ink seeps out while filling, stop filling the cartridge and wipe up the ink with a paper towel. Some cartridges may not need the full amount of ink. Repeat this step for each of the colored ink fill holes.
#6
Replace the ink cartridge in the carriage of the printer. Run one to three test pages to cycle the ink and check the printing. Use any document with color on it for the Lexmark 43 and any document with black text for the Lexmark 44.

Thanks
