Dell 926 Printer ink refill instructions
I don't have a Dell but we have Lexmarks which use similar cartridges. I'm guessing your color and black has a flat top. Your printer should be using a 2 cartridge system and most likely w/ 4 colors. Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. The Black cartridge is a single color cartridge. The CMY (short for Cyan,Magenta,Yellow) is in another cartridge. If you don't know which one, get a paper tower and dab the bottom of the cartridge near the nozzles which are usual silver in color. If you have the color you now need a very thin needle to fit those very small holes. If your needle wont fit then you will have to enlarge the holes. To refill,you really will enlarge it anyway to inject the syringe needles in. Stick the needle into the hole as deep as you can and stop just before you hit bottom. Just approximate the height of the cartridge to the needle. When you take the needle out, use a paper towel or toilet paper to wipe off the ink. What you wipe off will be the color of that chamber. You just need to do one more on any of the 2 remaining holes. Label as you go so you know what color it is. Don't do mental gymnastics. One mistake means you either print w/wrong colors or buy a new cartridge. I'm not familiar w/ the cartridge so I'm guessing on the color you should put between 1-2ml of ink per color. On the black maybe 5-8ml. This is to be on the safe side. Don't overfill it. There's no guarantee your cartridge will print, cuz manual refills are not as good as those done on a machine. If it works you may be able to refill another 2-3 times. Manual refilling is a gamble. Just ink the ink in very slowly and be patient. take about 15-20 seconds to inject 1 ml. Hope this helps.
