Refill cartridge Can anyone tell me how to re-fill a cartridge on the MFC240C all-in-one? Read other so-called ways but don't work. Where do I drill the hole to fill the ink? It says on the top but that doesn't seem to be quite it.

I have just refilled my ink cartridges and when i try to print it shows that i have to replace the in cartridges!!! can anyone hellp? :(


Hello,

You have nothing to worry about if it still prints. The printer probably recognizes the cartridge as the one you just ran out of, so its confused. It should work regardless, just ignore the messages. If it doesn't work at all then you might want to take it back to where you got it refilled and take it up with them.

I need to know how to refill my ink for my nx110 printer


The ink cartridges used in Epson's Stylus line of printers are very similar to the ones used in its other printers. A handful of cartridges--like the S020034, S020047 or S020049--may require a slightly different refilling technique, but they all basically entail opening a fill hole in the top to run down into the ink chamber within. Once the chamber is accessible, you can use a basic refill kit with a syringe bottle to refill the chamber, as with most printer-ink cartridges.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
1. Hold the cartridge upside down so the outlet holes to the printer paper are on top. Cover each hole with a piece of tape, then turn the cartridge right-side up.

2. Make a hole in the top of the cartridge above each ink chamber. For most cartridges, simply poke a hole through the label with a toothpick. With cartridges like the Epson Stylus 34 (the casing of which is black), pull back the label to reveal the filling holes and puncture the seal of each home. For the 47 or 49 color cartridge, drill a 1/8-inch hole in the shell between the label and front edge.

3. Determine which color of ink is in which chamber (if you're refilling a color cartridge). The toothpick used to puncture the hole should draw out some ink to show you. If you have a cartridge in which you punctured the label directly, the order of the color chambers is usually cyan, magenta and yellow. If you created the hole in another way (like with the 34, 47 or 49 cartridges), the order is usually magenta, cyan and yellow.

4.Fill the syringe bottle with 5ml of ink. Insert the needle in the filling hole and inject the ink. There may be a sponge inside the chamber, so make sure the needle goes all the way through to the bottom. The 34 cartridge takes up to 12ml of ink.

5. Tape over the fill holes you created. If you drilled the holes, plastic plugs (like the ones included in a refill kit) can work as well. Leave the tape on the outlet holes as you replace the cartridge in the Epson Stylus printer.

How to refill...canon mp260


you can try to open the cover from the ink container, it is sealed so it will be kind of hard.you can make a hole on top of the cover. big enough for a needle to go in.
to refil the printer remove first , the seal on the catridge to uncover the filling holes. To do this either trap the cap in a vice and leaver it off, or carefully use a penknife to remove it. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
  • Enlarge the fill holes with the drill . Tightly tape the ink delivery holes at the base of the cartridge before refilling.
    Assemble the syringe and needle, pierce the bottle seal and fill with ink
  • Gently insert the needle on the bottle of ink into the hole you just drilled in the ink cartridge. Avoid squeezing the bottle until the needle is completely inserted in the ink tank.
  • Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
  • Remove the needle from the ink tank. Wipe the top of the Canon ink cartridge off with a paper towel. Place a small piece of duct tape over the drilled hole. Rub the tape to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres to the cartridge.
  • Put the refilled ink cartridge back into the printer. Clean the head of the printer by running the printer software and following the instructions for head cleaning.
  • If you are filling a colour cartridge clean the syringe and needle thoroughly with water before filling with the next colour ink.
  • Whilst holding the cartridge upright over a sink or basin, carefully remove the tape from the delivery holes. Ink will probably drip from the cartridge for a while. Do not allow colours to mix at the outlet ports.
  • When the cartridge has stopped dripping carefully blot the bottom with some absorbent material taking care not to cross contaminate the colours
  • The cartridge is ready for use.
  • hope this helps pls do let me know

    Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
    Please consider the following:
    If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
    They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
    If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

    How do i refill a canon printer cartridge


    You need to put a strip of fexible eletrical tape over the large ink pad hole on the bottom front of the cartidge.
    Drill a small hole at the top of the ink cartridge over the ink reservoir. (most refill kits come with a small bit to drill the hole). Fill the ink reservoir to 3/4. Put a piece of flexible electrical tape over the drilled hole to close the hole.
    Voila! ... a refilled cartridge.
    Most refill kits will have instructions.
    Refilling can be messy so be careful and wear disposible latex gloves to avoid staining your hands. Also make sure you work over newpaper to catch any ink that you may drop.
    Good luck.

    I found that aftermarket cartridges are less than half the price of OEM cartridges and without the mess.

    Refill clp-315


    No need to drill holes. If you turn the cartridge with the drum facing away from you, on the left hand side, you should see a small block elliptical cover with a couple of divider on it. That is the cover for filling the cartridge. The problem is there is no available reset chip yet for clp-315.

    i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.
    GOOD LUCK.
