    I hate to be the one that says the Emperor has no clothes but refills for ink cartridges are a scam. They are not worth the hassle, and that is why they do not give out instructions. Please return it immediately, get a refund and buy the manufacturers refill.

We have installed a new Colour cartridge and followed the steps. Yes, it clicked. After we press ok, it goes back to telling us to install the cartridge. We have completed this process over many times now...


Solution 1:
A lot of printer cartridges have a built in chip that the printer reads. If you are not using the printers brand name refills, this will sometimes lead to the cartridge not being recognized by the printer.

Solution 2:
Additionally, some printers when they have become worn ( seen a lot of use ) have also been known to not recognize the refill cartrige after instalation. The second problem cause, although not a popular solution, can only be fixed by purchasing a new printer.

I hope you have found this to be helpful. Please rate/vote! Thank You!

How I can refill my HP 27 Cartridge at home...


Hi,

please follow the instructions........

  • 1

    Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.

  • 2

    Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.

  • 3

    Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.

  • 4

    Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.

  • 5

    Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.

  • 6

    Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.

  • 7

    Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.

  • 8

    Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.

  • 9

    Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.

  • 10

    Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.

  • 11

    Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.

  • 12

    Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.

  • 13

    Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.

  • 14

    Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.

  • 15

    Reattach the original top label.

    My computer will not reconize the ink cartriges in my printer


    Read on and see if any applies to you.
    Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

    If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

    Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
    Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

    Re-filling them will have no effect

    If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
    chip resetter around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

    OR

    Even better empty cartridges that
    never need to be reset.
    The second option is my preference

    I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

    cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
    If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
    Also be very gentle.

    I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
    Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

    I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
    I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

    I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

    No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work

    Blue horozontal lines running through picyure prints


    Try taking out your two ink cartriges, put back in and on your computer it should come up with an option to align (follow the directions). If does not work, then injectors/lazers might be out of line them selves. At that point call the company of the printer and they can help you more.

    I need to know how to refill my ink in my printer


    Hi lisa40447,

    It really depends on the make and model of your printer. But I would strongly go against refilling the ink cartridge because there is a very big possibility that you can damage your printer if you keep reusing a cartridge that has used up its life. The big problem with this is that the ink usually leaks out or "bleed" when cartridges are refilled and in turn this damages components inside the printer.

    It's still a better option to just buy new ink catridges for your printers, since it is more expensive if the printer gets damaged due to usage of refilled ink cartridges.

    Hope this helps!

    Peace! :)

    Wrong cartridge


    Nice Printer.

    First of all, see if its reading on the computer, if not, try and hold the power on the printer untill it shuts off, and then turn it back on again. Also, you might want to check the troubeshooting section if you have the manual

    If none of the above works, try getting a replacement cartrige. if the connectors on the cartrige get messed up, the printer may not read the cartrige properly. Make sure the printer's connection to the cartirdge is ok too. If you know someone who has the same printer, try the "ERROR" cartrige in that printer. if it works, then your printer needs to get fixed. If it doesn't work, get a new cartrige and all should be fine. Don't get the cartrige refilled if it doesn't read in a nother printer, you need to replace the cartrige!

    I bought a printer HP 4250 , I am trying to install new ink cartridges . There are none inside the set....is that normal


    Yes it is normal because the printer is not shipped with preinstalled cartriges in the printer, it must have been shipped with a black ink toner cartrige and you can print upto 1000 pages using that.
