Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
You need to clean the Nozzles of the cartridge before inserting the cartridge in the printer. You can take a tissue paper and wet it a little and keep the cartridge nozzles side on the tissue and let it absorb little ink from the cartridge and later take a white sheet and try to press the paper against the nozzles to see if you get the correct colors out of the cartridge. e.i. CMY Cartridge No. 22 will have an arrangement of C on left and Magenta in Centre and Yellow on right side. If it does not work then you need to suck the ink from the nozzles with a little help of your mouth with a cloth covered on the nozzles.

Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.
Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.
Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.
Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.
Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.
Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.
Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.
Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.
Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.
Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.
Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.
Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.
Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.
Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.
Reattach the original top label.
