cartridges have chips, you need a cartridge with a special chip that resets each time. These can be bought on ebay or amazon. You cant refill factory cartridges with oem chips.

I have an Epson stylus nx400 printer. I bought the ink refill kits that were recommended for it, but it's not listed on the instructions. I just want instructions on how to refill my cartridges.

Use syringre with small outlet. Fill from bottom side of ink tank. Better you don't refill ink tank. It will distort rubber seal at bottom side of ink tank. Then ink will leak. After refilling, you must reset ink counter. Do you have chip resetter?

That usually means that the chip on a re-manufactured cartridges had not been reset properly.

Ensure you removed the little cello strip from bottom side of cartridge.
Try unplugging printer power cord for five minutes, and also re-fitting cartridges.

If that does not work call the company and have them replaced.

Note: for the future, it is better buying always original new cartridge rather than refilled/refurbished ones, as you do not know as many times a refilled had been used. On sporadic occasions refilled cartridges can fail and damage the printer.

Refilled cartridge not printing

Try to cartridge manually ,please follow the instructions :

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

How do i refill an ink cartidge?:

There are five holes in the top of your cartridge. You can get the label off with a razor blade or a heat gun. Then inject the ink through one of the holes and hope you don't get an air bubble in the sponge. Do not allow ink to float on top of the sponge as the cartridge will not work.

Ink cartirdge

If it is a black cartridge then you can put the hole anywhere in the top as it is all one sponge. If it is colour then you need the holes in the following places.
Magenta (Red) - Top Centre.
Cyan (Blue) - Bottom Left.
Yellow - Bottom Right.

If your still unsure it is quite simple to pop the lid off with a normal knife and refill directly into the sponges. When finished you can simply stick the lid back on, although this is not as tidy looking it will work fine.

Good luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Refilling ink cartridges

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
