Re: Refill ink Cartridge

See link:

(the lc1000 is the same as the lc51)

Refill a max of 12ml for Y/C/M and 20ml for bk.

brother has changed the inside of the carts. So plz check carefully the pics if your cart looks the same. If it looks different you should drill the hole near the upper valve (the one with the white plastic)!

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?

Follow these steps:
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).
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.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
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.
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.

if u want to print selected document in black than open the document select print go to printer properties select grayscale printing

always print in black
go to printer properties than go to maintenance than go to ink cartridge setting select ink cartridge black only for balck and white printing only.

better use this generic ink carts, which work pretty much better than the original ones :o
(LC1000 is identical to LC51)

There is much trouble by refilling original carts, because of the ink which might clog the ph.
Anyway if you keen on inky-fingers, malfunction ph and maybe bad printing results: - Refill

Instructions on refilling cartridge for brother LC41CL cartridge

Do mix the ink with some glycerol to prevent clogging!

2ml glycerol (85%-glycerin alc. from drugstore) with 10ml of ink for C/Y/M and shake well (mix) before use. Mix 1,5 ml glycerol with 20ml BK ink.

Simply drill a hole into the brandname (O of brother) on top of the cart. Refill with 12ml for C/Y/M and about 21ml for bk.

You can leave the hole open.

Next time when cart is empty simply open scanner and refill without taking the cart out! ;-)

Refilling ink cartridges

hp74a.jpg HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions
Black cartridge

1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
2. Peal off the top label. hp74b.jpg
3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages: for Black

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.
A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
One 30cc Syringe

Is this a question about refill ink? With Brother and Canon original inks, they use a special type of ultraviolet ink for their ink level sensors to detect. I wouldn't recommend using anything but the original because of shortened printhead life. I have had many repair requests because of aftermarket inks....
