Remove the top before refilling.
Otherwise you risk that the colors get mixed.
That happened to me when using holes drilled from the top.

I keep getting a cartridge error message. I have replace the ink cartridges but still have the error.

Are you using Dell Series 11 ink cartridges?

Open the printer with the power on and remove the Dell Series 11 black ink cartridge and make sure the tape is off the cartridge, then reseat the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 11 color cartridge. Now when you close the printer, it should print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Black = Black side(left side) Color = Color side(right side)

Photo = Black side(left side) Color = Color side(right side)

Dell Series 11 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 11 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It possible to get a Dell Series 11 Cartridge with a bad sensor. Take back to place of purchase for a replacement.

What ink can i refil my my series 11 ink cartrige ??? or another cartrige thats a hp or cannon or epson that will fit in my dell 948 printer

Hello. You can refill the existing cartridge without a problem. Other brand cartridges will not work as they are all programmed only to use DELL model cartridges.
To Refill the cartridge you simply need to pull the label off, Drill the Air holes out, test what colour is behind the hole by sticking a toothpick into it and inject the correct colour.
If the cartridge leaks from the print head then the cartridge has been overfilled and you need to **** out ink (half ml at a time) until the dripping stops.
The only issue with this is that the printer may not accept a cartridge that it thinks is empty, and even though you fill it, the in-built counter in the cartridge will still read "0"
Some models will print with a empty cartridge, constantly reminding you that it is empty. if you simply ignore or click continue you can keep on printing, but some models will not print at all if it thinks the cartridge is empty.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Is there a way to refill the cartridges yourself for the Dell 948 all in one printer? I know I can buy refills, but I wanted to buy a refill kit and do it myself. I'm concerned about the chip. Any...

I tried more than once, and it does not work because the chip continues to treat the cartridge as empty no matter what. If you have one black and one color cartridge in your printer, the printer will draw from whatever cartridge still had ink left in it before you refilled it. Therefore, the chip does not allow it to draw from the one new cartridge. I have heard that there are ways to override this, but it more than likely would be damaging to your printer eventually. You also would no longer have any accurate means of knowing how much ink you have remaining. Major pain. Places like Cartridge World need to not advertise that all printers can be refilled.

Full Refill cartridge not working on my Dell 948 all in one printer

If it is a factory replacement, make sure the tape is removed from the cartridge. If it is refurbished, it's probably a bad cartridge.

Refilled my Dell Ink Cartridge

yes, it's safe, and if you are dissatisfied with the cartridge, take it up with the cartridge re-filler...better yet, spend about $100 on a black & white laser printer (HP), and get 2000 pages per cartridge, and reduce cost per page by 20 times or more! And If you buy compatibles for this (which are more reliable) -save even more.

Refilling a dell 948 color ink cart #11

Alright, I gave in and busted open my Series 11 KX703 color cartridge to figure out how to refill it. As Inksaver pointed out there are six columns which ultimately lead into three ink wells the bottom two (next to the cartridge head) are magenta, the upper right two are yellow and upper left two are cyan. Each well has one sponge in it that soaks up the ink. Each of the six columns has a hole predrilled in the center of it just below the top layer of plastic (about 5/16" from the left and right edge and 1/4" from the top and bottom and 1 3/16" (midway) from the top and bottom for the center two holes).

When I do it again (with a new cartridge since this one is busted), I'd drill three holes, one lower right and the two center holes, push the metal syringe down into the foam about midway and inject each of the foams with new blood. If someone else tries let me know how it goes. Hope this helps.
