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!

Had refill at Costco for hp 4620 printer 564 cartridge and now printer will not print in color. What do I do to make it print?u


That's means you didn't refill the colour ink properly.
Try this method, use the injection to draw any of the colour of about 2mm of the refill you bought, inject it into one of the tiny holes of the cartridge and draw a little back so as to remove the dirt in the foam inside the cartridge.. That's all

Installeds a refilled colour cartridge and will work but printer says empt..may do damage. Lexmark x5450 colour cartridge # 33.


Using a refill for this printer will not "do damage." The damage they are referring to is if you continue printing with an empty cartridge you can damage the print head on the cartridge. Since you replace the print head every time you replace the cartridge, you never damage your printer.

Lexmark X1100 Series won't print in colour after cartridge refill


I have refilled my cartride many times. Sometimes the colour has not worked so I found that if I put the lower end in hot water and made sure all 3 colours came out in the water the printing then worked. It simply was clogged after refilling.

Colour cartridge has run out and printer won't print.


Hi
Realy sorry but the only non new purchase option I have occsionaly found to work is to pull the colur cartridge and reinstal without using.'

Another one I've heard of and would definately not recoment is if you have an old recharge kit top the colour up with meths. My opinion of this is a great way to destroy your print head and cartridge.

Rewcharge kits containing all of your colours are inexpensive if a littlebit messy do it in the laundry or bathroom, over newspaper and preferably with a pair of gloves.

Kind Regards

Refilled ink cartridges problem colour


this is not a printer problem, you have a problem with colour cartridge! u can fix this in 2 diferent way: 1. replace the colour cartridge with new one, or gently clean the nozzle cartridge with a wet tissue until the cyan colour mark a line on the tissue just like the others colours: yellow and magenta. maybe must repeat this several times.

My Xerox DocuPrint M750 printer will not print black text but will print colour


This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.
