Follow these steps: 1. Buy an Epson ink refill kit. A refill kit gives you all the tools you need to refill Epson ink cartridges. Kits typically include a syringe, rivets, ink, and instructions on how to refill the cartridge. You can find Epson ink refill kits on the Printer Filling Station along with instructions for each specific model (see Resources). 2. Cover your workspace with a paper towel and fill up the syringe with the ink color you need. Epson refill kits will either include black ink or the color combination cyan, yellow and magenta. On average, you'll need 10 ml of black ink or 5 ml of color ink for Epson ink cartridges. 3. Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal. 4. Empty the contents of the syringe into the Epson ink cartridge. You'll want to perform this action slowly in order to avoid spilling or overfilling the cartridge. 5. Remove the rivets. Use tape to cover the holes you made in the ink cartridge. Return the ink cartridge to the printer. Allow the printer to go through several print cycles in order to ensure that the Epson printer operates properly.

1. Place the cartridge over somepaper towels in case there are any spills.Remove the label sticker from the topof the color cartridge.
2. Drill into the three small holeson the top of the cartridge to widen them so they will allow syringe needles.
3. Fill a syringe with 6 mL ofmagenta ink. Insert the needle into the refill hole that is located below thetwo protruding rectangles on the top of the cartridge. Slowly inject the ink.
4. Fill a syringe with 6 mL of cyanink. Insert the needle into the refill hole located below the large rectangleon the top of the cartridge. Slowly inject the ink into the cartridge.
5. Fill a syringe with 6 mL of yellowink. Insert the needle into the refill hole located below the small rectangleon the top of the cartridge. Slowly inject the ink into the ink chamber.
6. Replace the cartridge into theMX310 printer.
1. Set the cartridge on some paper towels.
2. Drill a hole into the dimplelocated directly above the semicircle on the top of the cartridge.Fill asyringe with 20 mL of black ink. Insert the needle into the hole and slowlyinject the ink.
3. Replace the cartridge into theCanon MX310.
In order to replace the ink..please follow the following steps
#1 Spread out a piece of newspaper where you plan to work. Remove the supplies from the refill kit. The Lexmark 44 will have one bottle of black ink, one thumb drill and one syringe. The Lexmark 43 will have one bottle each cyan, magenta and yellow, three syringes and one thumb drill. #2 Remove the label from the ink cartridge. The black refill hole is at the top of the ink cartridge. Use a toothpick to check the color of each fill hole on the color ink cartridge. Generally, the magenta is at the top of the cartridge, the yellow is at the left center and the cyan is at the right center. #3 Use the thumb drill to open up the fill hole to fit the syringe needle. Place the tip of the thumb drill on the fill hole and twist until the hole opens up larger. Do this for each color hole on the color ink cartridge. #4 Fill each syringe with 7 ml of color ink (one for each color) and 15 ml of black ink. Insert the syringe needle into the bottle of ink and pull the plunger upwards. #5 Place the tip of the syringe needle into the fill hole. Slowly press down on the plunger. If the ink seeps out while filling, stop filling the cartridge and wipe up the ink with a paper towel. Some cartridges may not need the full amount of ink. Repeat this step for each of the colored ink fill holes. #6 Replace the ink cartridge in the carriage of the printer. Run one to three test pages to cycle the ink and check the printing. Use any document with color on it for the Lexmark 43 and any document with black text for the Lexmark 44.
Open up the cartridge to reach the ink
chamber within. For color and photo cartridges, just remove the lid with
a sharp knife (insert it where the black and colored plastic meet) to
find the three fill holes. On black cartridges, make a hole with a
heated pin or drill on top of the cartridge where the letter "K" is.
Check the chambers in a color/photo cartridge to determine
which color ink is in which chamber. Insert a different toothpick or pin
into each chamber to draw out yellow, cyan or magenta ink.
Fill a plastic syringe bottle with enough ink in the color
you are refilling. A black ink cartridge should
need 10 to 15 milliliters. A color/photo cartridge takes 5 milliliters
of each color.
Insert the syringe needle into the cartridge, sending the tip
down to the bottom. The chamber contains a sponge, so you will need a
small bit of force to push it in.
Inject the ink into the cartridge. Unlike other brands of
cartridges, you want to saturate the sponge with ink in a Kodak
cartridge. Depress the syringe plunger slowly until you can see the ink
begin to surface on top of the sponge.
Wash all ink residue out of the syringe after you've refilled
one shade of ink. If you intend to refill another color immediately,
dry the syringe out first.
Replace the lid on a color/photo cartridge. Apply a strip of
tape to the spot where you first removed the lid to secure it. You don't
need to seal a hole you drilled in a black cartridge.
Leave the cartridge standing in a secure spot overnight. This
helps the ink settle within the cartridge for even printing once the
cartridge is back in the printer.
Holding them upside down, place the syringe in the hole.
Tilt the syringe slightly and drawback in an attempt to create a vacuum and pull the syringe out.
You only need a slight vacuum.
If air returns to the cartridge through the other hole (the one with the little white thing sticking out from the middle), then the cartridge maybe no good, although you could try using pliers to pull that stick out slightly and holding it for a bit to try and correct its position and hold a seal, but this is generally a temporary fix.
Now once again insert the syringe into the appropriate hole and attempt to create a vacuum then pull the syringe out.
Place the cartridges back in the machine and they should be ok.
you can use every DYE ink for brother printers.
DO NOT use pigmented ink due to clogged filters inside the printhead!!!!
The carts for mfc210 are filled with 20ml for BK and 11ml for C/Y/M.
I use to refill 20ml only ink for bk and 10ml ink + 1ml printhead cleaner for C/Y/M.
See here how to do that (LC900 refill):
(Simply drill a hole into the brother brandname and leave it open!)
I use a 20ml syringe and 3 12(10+2)ml syringes from the drugstore (ask your doc! It may be cheaper ;-)
