You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...


The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

Canon recommends genuine canon ink jet cartridges. If you bought a remanufactured ink jet cartridge and it did this, I would return it immediately.

But, since you filled it yourself, there's no recourse with the ink company, I don't believe.

Even if you were successful with refilling, they can only be refilled 2 or 3 times at best.
