You can refill an Epson ink cartridge, but you will need an "SK168-II Chip Resetter" to clear and reset the cartridge memory chip. The cartridge will still show as empty after refilling and not work until it is reset. The refill ink should have come with an instruction sheet. If not check their web site for instructions. If the cartridge has been empty for a while and you can hear the sponge inside when shaking it - it has fried out and cannot be refilled. The dust particles from the dried sponge will plug up the jets.
Some aftermarket printer ink sales web sites will offer the chip resetter for Epson printers.
Thanks for using Fixya.
You won't need to drill hole anywhere.

But remember you would need a chip resetter gun to re set the chips on the ink cartridges after you refill the cartridges.

The Epson 68 cartridges cannot be legally refilled at this time. There are two chips that monitor the ink levels. Once the ink gets below 25% the inner chip deactivates the outer chip so it cannot be reset. Any replacement chips you can buy are technically violating patent law. To refill these you would need a chip resetter and always refill it before it gets below 25%. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would not recommend refilling these yourself unless you enjoy getting ink everywhere and possibly still not having the cartridge work (btw there is no "refill hole" you make it yourself, thus the messiness).
To refill epson cartridges, you will need a resetter of the cartridge to restore the ink level back to full content.
You can buy a spongeless cartridges with an autoreset chips for your printer so that you will not need the ink cartridge resetter anymore since it will auto reset. This is my suggestion since spongeless cartridges are easy to refill than the genuine cartridges. Hope you can find in your area. If not, you can go to the nearest ink refilling center in your area and you can let them teach you if they will. Hope it would help.
shouldn't be the ink. I assume you have an epson as in the picture. my ink refill kit mentions that "epson intellidge chipped cartridges" require an "ink level resetter" to complete the kit. So if you have these cartridges even once refilled the chip tells the printer the cartridge is still empty so you'll need to reset the chip with the ink level resetter.
Use syringre with small outlet. Fill from bottom side of ink tank. Better you don't refill ink tank. It will distort rubber seal at bottom side of ink tank. Then ink will leak. After refilling, you must reset ink counter. Do you have chip resetter?
The cartridge chip needs to be reset to "full"; for this you need a chip resetter - this should have been done by whoever refilled the cartridge for you. You can get your own Epson chip resetter very cheaply on E-Bay.
It depends on the cartridge - the genuine Epson cartridges and the various clones are not all constructed in the same way. Do a google search on "epson c67 cartridge refill instructions" and review the various recommendations - you will soon see which best applies to your cartridges. Note, however, that the chip restter manufacturers do not guarantee to work with all clone cartridges.
I use cheap replacement cartridges about 20$ for 3 color/5 black....the printer usually doesnt recognize the cartridges ink level but it still prints......do you use actual epson replacements? If you use cheaper replacements you might have gotten some with dud chips...prob the cartridges fault, not your printer
