Step 1) Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill such as a sink. Be sure that you are wearing old clothes, since the first time you fill the cartridge, you will probably get some ink on your clothes and hands. You may wish to wear rubber gloves if you don't want to stain your hands. I also don't recommend refilling as a family project. Step 2) Look at the cartridge. Near the bottom of the cartridge you will see a horizontal break line in the plastic where the two parts of the cartridge snap together. Step 3) Using a sharp knife or scissor blade, cut the label on the front of the cartridge along the line where the two parts of the cartridge come together. Step 4) Using a knife,screwdriver, or just your hands pry the cartridge open along the line. Let it hang by the backside label. Step 5) The exit port is the point where the ink comes out of the cartridge. It has an obvious stem. Place this stem to your right. Step 6) You will also see a rubber oval-shaped bulb. To the left of this bulb is the fill hole. You will see a small ball in this hole. Stick a pin or the end of a sharp knife into this ball and pry or lift it out of the hole. (Saundra recommends a sharp steak knife. (*** Don't stab or cut yourself!***) Don't lose the ball! Step 7) Fill your syringe bottle with the appropriate ink. You'll need about 30 ml (1 full syringe bottle) for the regular cartridges, about 75 ml (2 1/2 syringe bottles) for the high capacity black cartridge. Step 8) Insert the needle 1/4 to 1/2 inch (5-10mm) into the fill hole. Be careful not to puncture the bag, especially if you have a sharp needle. Step 9) Inject the ink into the opening. Step 10) Tilt the bag so that the opening is at the top. This will let the air bubble up and out. Step 11) Using the syringe, suction about 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) of ink and air frothy mixture out of the top of the bag. Step 12) Inspect the ball. If it has been damaged, you should use a new ball or the damage may cause a slight leak. (We have additional balls for sale.) Step 13) Replace the ball in the cartridge. Saundra says, "The tip of a retracted ball-point pen is ideal for this." Step 14) Turn the cartridge upside down (stem down) and gently squeeze to check for leaks.
If you see a leak there are three possible problems.
1. The bag inside the cartridge has bursted or is punctured. There is no fix for this: the cartridge is dead.
2. While refilling you allowed ink to escape and get on the white collar surrounding the exit port, bulb and fill hole. The ink has now leaked between the bag and the sides of the cartridge. Even though this is usually only a small amount of ink it will act like you poured an entire pint in there! The solution is to remove the bag. Please do this over the sink. As you are looking at the cartridge you will notice that the sides are long ovals. Hook your thumbs inside the ovals and pull as if though you are going to pull the cartridge apart. You will see two plastic tabs. Release one and then the other. Using the bulb frame as a gripping point, pull straight up and lift the bag. This will be messy. Rinse the outside of the bag and the inside of the cartridge shell. Try not to get water on the copper chip while you are working. Using an old towel or a paper towel, dry off the bag and dry out the inside of the cartridge.
3. You have not pushed the ball into the hole securely. Push it in again and wipe up the excess ink. Squeeze the cartridge to make sure you have it sealed tightly before putting it back in the printer.
If there are no leaks insert your cartridge into the printer and print.
The light on your printer warning you that the ink is low will remain ON. This is normal. Do not panic: just see if it prints

Here is a video from HP explaining the process. IF you followed this procedure and are getting errors, then you may have bigger issues. I am assuming you are using genuine HP ink, not remanufactured or refilled cartridges.

Refilled ink cartrige still showing empty is their any way to reset printer


Regarding your HP Officjet Pro 8600 printer and refilled HP 950/951 ink cartridges and the "low ink" messages. Depending on your ink refiller (or if you did it yourself?), a replacement chip may or may not have been installed with the recently refilled cartridge(s). Refer to picture on our support site to first determine which type of cartridge configuration you have, then refer to the applicable section to address the current cartridge error(s) or printer issues.
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999

NOTE: Costco USA's Ink Refill service now 'chips' all refilled ink cartridges which fully restores all functions to that of a regular HP (OEM) ink cartridge and customer experience. For USA ink refill store locations and details on ink refill pricing:

Costco USA Ink Refill Service (all 453+ stores): http://www.costcoinkjetrefill.com

Fry's Electronics Ink Refill Service (all 34 stores): http://www.frys.com/ads/page51

Micro Center Ink Refill Service: http://www.microcenter.com/site/content/refill-service.aspx


Refer to Section A if your refiller attached a new replacement chip (green in color) onto the cartridge. Refer to Section B if only the original HP chip is attached.

----

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested! HP original/genuine ink cartridges can be identified by the visible HP logo on the front label of the cartridge.

I refilled HP 8500 cartridge but printer (Officejet Pro still thinks cartridge is empty. How do I reset ink level?


This model printer may only let you use genuine printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

I refilled HP 88 cartridge but printer (Officejet Pro L7590) still thinks cartridge is empty. How do I reset ink level?


Under the cartridge is a black like pump - on a new cartridge this is hard and rests firmly on an area inside your printer. As you print, the pump becomes softer - this is how the printer determines it is empty. Once refilled, the pump does not get back to the original state. Open the bottom of the cartridge and put a firm solid piece of folded paper in there - make sure it is steady and re-close cartridge. It will now read as full but may also show full - judge ink levels by the quality of print. Also make sure chip has not expired.

Inkjet refills


hi,

as you are using a refilled cartridge, it is causing this problem. the thickness of ink in a hp genuine cartridge and a refilled cartridge varies. and also the refilled cartridge may make your printer faulty. so it is good to try with a new hp genuine ink cartridges.

thanks and regards
