I don't know how to refill?


Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.

1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover.
2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle.
3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta.
4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole.
5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel.
6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

The colored ink cartridge was refilled once and it worked well, now I'm refilling it the second time and it seems to not be responding anymore, assistance please, if there is any.


It is not recommended to use the refilled ink cartridges...But anyhow you can use the refilled cartridge once or twice if it is refilled properly...

When refilling the cartridge, the cartridge will be opened for refilling the INK...In this phase the Circuit in the cartridge may be damaged due to improper handling...

In this situation the cartridge has to be changed, No other go...!

My HP 6500 only prints yellow and black. I refilled all three color cartridges and only the yellow is working. Any ideas?


I own a printer cartridge refilling store and I can't refill these cartridges yet because the chip needs to be replaced/reset and we don't have the technology to do it yet. The reason why only the refilled yellow is working is probably because the chip still thinks there's ink in the cartridge. However, your yellow cartridge will most likely soon not print as well. The other cartridges the chips are telling the printer they are empty. Printer manufacturers like to do this kind of thing so you have to spend the extra money to buy their ink. I would not recommend even trying to refill these yourself until you see reputable retailers with refills (i.e.- Cartridge World, Office Depot, etc).

I cannot get my printer to recognize my refilled ink cartridges


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Printer cartridges not recognised


Sometimes even when an ink cartridge has been refilled to capacity, your printer still registers it as empty. This is because your printer remembers that the cartridge was previously installed and it can only remember it as being empty. Part of this is due to technology put in place by printer manufacturers so that you will always have to buy new cartridges. Part of it is also that print catridges are clogged if not used for sometime after its empty even after refilling this is because the contact was already clogged due to the dryness of the old ink inside it before refilling so in that case you will clean/soak the contacts with solvent before refilling .
again since there is no “official” way to fix this problem, you have to basically clear the printer’s memory to make it recognize that you are installing a full cartridge. If you have tried to install the refilled cartridge and you have done all you can to convince your printer that the cartridge isn’t still empty, then basically you just have to unplug your printer for a minute and then trying reinstalling again. but it should fix this problem and it can potentially fix other annoying things your printer is doing.

Refilling HP 56 Cartridge


USING THIS TYPE OF REFILLS JUST ISN'T A GOOD IDEA. THE INK IS NOT THE SAME AS HP CARTRIDGE INK AND YOUR PRINTER WAS MADE FOR HP INK, NOT SOME GENERIC BRAND. THE FACT THAT IT DOESN'T WORK UNLESS YOU STICK IT IN WATER, ETC. SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE. REFILLING IS MESSY, AND CAN CAUSE LEAKS IN YOUR PRINTER AND REALLY MESS THINGS UP. THE BEST BET IS TO USE THE PROPER INK CARTRIDGE WITH YOUR PRINTER. THATS THE TYPE OF INK IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.

Refilling ink cartridge for Lexmark z1480 printer (instructioons)


you need to peel the label off and make a hole in each of the 3 indents. It's quite difficult but if you've managed it with the black then you'll know what I mean. Then using a syringe put your yellow in the top left at the front end of the cartridge, cyan in the top right and the blue one at the bottom. Should take about 20mls or around that each. If you're ever not sure which colour goes where put the syringe into the hole first and try and draw a little of the remaining ink out to check 1st. Put the sticky label or some tape back on.
