Refilling Cannon 106 cartrige streaks on page.

I have been refilling a Cannon 106 cartridge with the tool kit. The first fill runs great; however towards the end of the ink the ink starts building up and streaking down the page; the text print is there however the whole page starts streaking down the page with a ink cast. Does this mean the roller is old? do they wear out. Why does the ink streak? Is there anything I can do to correct this?

    Thank you so much for the info. It would be great to use all original toner however the cartridges are like $150 at the store. Since I use 2 to 3 per month the expense is great. I will look for the oem toner and hopefully that will help. Lots of printing to do on a small budge. : ) If I could get them cheaper it would be okay

I filled my hp 61 cartridges myself.I am having problems getting the ink to flow right,with the black cartridge

When filling cartridges yourself (i.e. DIY kits) you need to ensure that a proper vacuum prime occurs...often this is tricky if the internal foam is not properly 'wetted'. I suggest you take your HP61 ink cartridges to either Costco (most locations) or any Fry's Electronic Stores for ink refilling (typically ~40-70% cost savings vs. new cartridge cost)...the refill operators use a commercial grade ink refilling machine that preps, evacuates, cleans and then fills the cartridge automatically....followed by an electrical nozzle/jetting test. Anything goes wrong (at home) and you'll likely get a refund.

To find the nearest refill Costco store location and/or Costco pricing information, you can find this information at

I refilled the cartridge, it worked for a week. Then it abruptly began to print very poorly. Faint, with horizontal lines. I filled the cartridge again. No change. I cleaned the head and now it prints...

The problem that you have is that the ink that you use
in old/bad quility or you have air bubbles in the sponge
of the cartridge and that block the ink
in order to have a success refilling check the video
this is a simple method
with no special tools and machines

Hi there I bought some ink to refil my ink cartriges for my Lexmark s405 but the printer does not recognize the cartrges as full after I fill them how do I get around this? Thanks!

Most modern print cartridges are equipped with a page count chip that will disable the cartidge after a certain amount of prints.

Just refilling the cartridge will not solve the problem.

I would sugest not using refill cartridges

Brother Toner Refills

Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

Reset the cartrige after fill up

I'm not sure about Lexmark but some printer cartridges (Cannon) can't be refilled because the printers still think they are empty. You can buy a little gismo on ebay to reset the cartridges after you refill them. Good luck.

Refilling ink cartridges

hp74a.jpg HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions
Black cartridge

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: 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

Hp 2175 printer

have you succesfully refilled the cartridge before?
i'm not sure, but you might need a chip resetter to refill a cartridge

it's also possible it doesn't work if you have refilled the cartridge more than three times

i recommend you to buy a new cartrige instead of refilling
