There are kits available in the market that allow you to refill cartridges. You should be able to find them at most computer stores. Each kit comes with refilling instructions, and these steps can vary from company to company.

However, I do not recommend refilling cartridges or even using generic ones. Always buy original inks, even if they are a bit more expensive. These days printers come with sensors that detect when an empty cartridge has been refilled, or if a generic cartridge (duplicate) has been used, and will cause all sorts of printer error which will be more expensive to repair than the few extra bucks it will cost for genuine inks.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Brother hl-3045 jam inside


Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!!
Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word.
Black cartridge printing worked fine.
When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels
you must open the back door of the printer.
got 'paper jam inside' error message.

Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.

Turn and unplug machine
take out all drum cartridges (all 4)
Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy)
check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case.
separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see
put them back together carefully.
Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges
do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside
switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message.
Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot.
Yellow in black slot
magenta in yellow slot
cyan in magenta slot
black in cyan slot.
then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked!
the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation.
hope this helps.

Tip

Upgrade your printer and continue to refill your own ink cartridges


I just had my HP 8600 document feeder fail. This problem part cannot be ordered for replacement, and to have it repaired will cost almost $200. Well a brand new one on sale is only $250. And better yet, upgrade to the HP Officejet Pro 8630, since HP will no longer be manufacturing the 8600.

I have saved hundreds of dollars, refilling my own cartridges. I upgraded, after I learned that the newer model uses the exact same ink cartridges. So, I am on my third HP Printer, and I have purchased only one set of cartridges in 3 years. I have refilled my color cartridges at least 8 times. They need refilling more frequently than the black. (The black ink cartridge is twice the size.)

In addition, I purchased a three year extended warranty for $20 or $30. If anything happens to this printer in that time, it will be replaced automatically, and I will not have to pay for shipping.

In essence, I am in position to have used the same set of ink cartridges for 6 years. I only put my new cartridges in after I have refilled the empties. After the printer resets, I pull them out and put in the refills. So you see, my printer came with a set of cartridges, and I purchased one extra set, for resetting the printer after refilling the cartridges.

I suggest to really control your costs, consider buying a quality printer, that will be good for years of service, add a service contract, and refill your own cartridges. If you print as much as I do, you are realize a significant savings in the cost of ink.

I know that I have saved a minimum of $360. Add the cost of inconvenience and going to Walmart for refills, and you may be realizing a savings of $150 per year, just for refills.

Good luck, and plan ahead.

Replacing the Print Cartridge
1 Open the front cover, and then open the top cover by pressing the blue levers on both sides of the top cover.
2 Remove the old print cartridge containing the used ribbon and dispose of it.
3 Remove the plastic stopper from the new print cartridge.
Note You can reuse the print cartridge until it breaks. If you purchased refill ribbons, follow the instructions that came with them.
4 Turn the black spool on the right clockwise to tighten the ribbon as shown.

the cartridge into its four holders.

Where do you get refill ink for canon fax phoneL80


The Canon Faxphone L80 takes a Canon FX3 cartridge. To get the highest quality refill I would first see if there is a Cartridge World store in your area. Cartridge World stores refill most cartridges in house with American made parts. Then try Office Depot. Office Depot is the only big box store that actually "remanufactures" toner cartridges. I would not recommend cheap refills or refill kits from the internet. Many use very low quality toner that wears on parts leading to print defects or they reuse parts that already generate print defects. DO NOT buy a "compatible" cartridge, these are not refills. They are new cartridge replicas and have no recycled components.

HP 20 ink refill problem


Did you try a new ink cart? Most print problems with inkjet machines are refilled carts.

It will not print anything


The problem lies with the refilled cartridge. 1.) Try wiping the bottom of the cartridge with a moist paper tower, to clear up any dried ink. 2.) Put cartridge back in and use the "clean nozzle" feature on the fax machine. 3.) If these steps don't work, it is best to take the refilled cartridge back to the place and have them take a look. Sometimes it can be salvaged. WHY: The print-head (bottom part of the cartridge, retangular shaped, where the ink comes out) is blocked, thus the ink isn't able to come through. This is NOT any fault of the ink refilling service, but rather a wear and tear issue with the cartridges. Most refilled cartridges will work perfectly fine and save you a lot of money.
