SOURCE: How can I refill my ink cartridges myself?

Be brave and have a go, buy the correct ink refill for your selection of cartridges, the packaging on the refill kits will tell you if your printer is included. Once you find one for yours, instructions come with it. I think your cartridges have plastic ones don't they? Make sure when you fill with syringe you follow instructions very closely to avoid air bubbles and always run a clean when you put it back in. I refill all the time, and each time i refill (i get 7-8 refills each cartridge now the way i do it) i am saving $80.00 both cartridges. This can be most of a thousand dollars a year for me.

SOURCE: HP PSC 2355 Won't accept refilled ink cartridges

If problem is what I think it is (that is if you cleaned whole thing and it is connected proprely), you have only one option. To buy at least three cartridges...problem is due a small trick made by HP. Printer remembers at least two cartridge serial numbers, and then wont accept refilled ones. But if you first stick one, then the other, and on the end the third one(only this one should be really full) it should reset printer and it should foul it to accept it. But on some printers it needs up to five cartridges! What a waste of money :( Anyway, hope this helps...

I refilled my cartridge for x2650, its full, but doesn't print I refilled my cartridge with ink myself that i bought from Argos, now it is full of ink, but still shows the message that i must replace...


Please note that Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled cartridges. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade in print quality and performance.
You may try to re-seat the cartridge and make sure it's properly seated in the cartridge carrier. Also note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

I would like to refill Epson Stylus CX9400 old ink


You cant recode the cartridge it is programmed to die and fry. You can get chips but many DIY filling options are going to cause you other issues down the road, they are a cheap way to run your printer but eventually willc ause you issues such as ink leaks which leads to the in pad needing to be renewed not to mention some other horror stories. I would alays reccomend OEM inks, but if non OEM is hte way you want to go contact a retail outlet that specialises in refilling spent cartridges.

I wouldn't recommend it because it will void your Epson warranty.

Color Ink prints are nice, but this cannot be an everyday printer --- the cartridges will put you in the poor house.

Buy a cheap monochrome laser printer (recommend the Brother brand) and save the purple ink for the elections.

Cheers!

How do i refill the ink myself cannon mp520


You need to reset or replace the ink level monitoring chip on these cartridges for refills to work. I know some refill kit sellers don't like to mention this to people before they buy the ink. Otherwise, I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because it can be messy to fill these cartridges and they always reset the chips for you.

You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers the serial numbers encoded in the electronics of the cartridges that have been in the printer. If your printer sees the same serial number in a row it will kick out the cartridge. HP printers don't use this same system to reject cartridges. I recommend Cartridge World refills or refills from anywhere that has a high turnover of these cartridges so you don't get one with the same serial number.

My Lexmark z22 printer will not print corretly


“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.

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) myself....how do I do it?


Hi there,
Filling is easy - but messy. I use No 40 cartridges for my pixma ip2200.
For the black cartridge, carefully remove the label. Drill a 2-3mm dia. hole in the depression in the top. With a syringe fill, using about 10ml of black ink. Plug the hole with a suitable bung and away you go!
You will however lose the ink level indication as it is not a genuine cartridge - but that is unreliable anyway.
Don't refill more than a couple of times as the foam inside the case eventually perishes and all the ink runs out.

Whilst the cartridge is out of the printer give the jets a wipe with a wet tissue. This is usually quite effective in removing dried on ink.

You can do the same with 41 colour cartridges but it is a bit more tricky locating the correct place to drill.

Good luck

Refilling ink cartridges


hp74a.jpg HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions
Black cartridge

Instructions
1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
2. Peal off the top label. hp74b.jpg
3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages:
http://www.refillinstructions.com/black.htm for Black

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.
A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
One 30cc Syringe

Which black cartridge does this need?


Yes you can refill the cartridges. Also Walgreen's refill cartridges now. $10. for black and $15. for colr cartridge refills. I've been using their refills and they work fine. It's less mess that doing it myself. And they use good quality ink... But you can refill them.They also carry universal refill kits at walgreen also. Also the cartridges are not hard to find you can order them at several places online. Google x1240 for sites. Also Staples sell the cartridges.
