Ink don't leak when the pressure equalizes (inside against outside pressure) ... anyway to make things simple, if you are using a syringe for refilling, **** back a small amont of ink untl leak stops.

After installing a refilled dell black ink cartridge i keep getting low ink messages and only get about 35 copies before it stops printing. i know that the cartridge is still full but dont know how to...


There in lies the trouble with saving $ on refilled cartridges. Personally, I have never had luck with refilled (personally refilled or commercially refiled) cartridges. I don't know of a way to beat the Dell system, which was designed to be helpful and reduce your frustration due to poor printing. My experience is I ruined several printers before I put one and one together and found the printers failed because of the second rate cartridge's I was using.

Considering that, I use original manufacturers cartridges and I never have a problem. Yes, it costs a little more - but I print when I want to print and I always get good result.

Not the solution you were seeking but this is my experience. Thank you

Hp laserjet 1100 toner catridge refill?


Hi follow these steps..

1.Purchase a refill kit for your model of printer. It is important to purchase a refill kit designed for your specific model, since generic refill kits do not work well with HP printers. There are a number of places to buy these kits, but you must make sure you get the right kit for your printer model

2.Take the toner out of the printer and clean it carefully. Over time toner cartridges will accumulate paper dust, dried toner and other debris, and all of this must be cleaned away before the cartridge is refilled.

3.Flip the cover out of the way to expose the developer roller, then use a soft clean cloth to clean the roller. It is important to clean this roller before refilling the cartridge.

4.Make a small hole in the toner cartridge, using the instructions provided in the refill kit. It is important to follow the refill kit instructions carefully, since the toner refill process will vary from model to model.

5.Place the replacement toner in the hopper, then carefully pour it into the HP cartridge. Be careful not to spill any of the toner, and if you do spill the toner be sure to clean it up promptly. Reseal the hole you made after the cartridge has been refilled.

6.Sit the refilled HP cartridge on a clean flat surface and let it remain there for 20-30 minutes. Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

7.Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

Good Luck & cheers:-)

How do i refill the # 96 & 97 ink cartridges


Hello!
To refill your cartridges, you will need a syringe, a needle, ink of course, some toilet paper or tissue and gloves (recommended!).
Turn the printer on, open the cover and remove the cartridges from the printer.

1. BLACK CARTRIDGE:

  • Peel off the top label- you should see several holes.
  • Fill the syringe with 10-15ml. of black ink.
  • Slowly inject ink in any of the holes (the best way is to pour a bit in each hole, so the sponge inside can absorb more ink)
  • If any ink starts coming out from the refill holes, remove 1 or 2ml of ink.
  • Also, always check if there is ink leaking from the print head (The nozzle or print head is the porous metal piece at the bottom of the cartridge). If there is, simply remove some ink.
  • Gently wipe the electric contacts on your cartridge.
2. COLOR CARTRIDGE:
  • Peel off the top label.
  • You will see 5 holes. The one on the top is for yellow. The two holes on the left are for magenta (red), and the ones on the right are for cyan (blue). Here is a picture:
cad76cd.jpg

  • Slowly pour 3-5ml. of each color in the appropriate hole.
  • If ink starts leaking, either from the refill hole or the print head, remove 1-2ml of ink.
  • Gently wipe the contacts on the cartridge.
A few tips:
  • Always make sure that you do not insert air along with the ink, because there will be white streaks on your printouts.
  • Once you have refilled your cartridges, your printer will give you a "low ink" message, which is normal, because the printer can't know that someone has refilled the cartridges. The printer "sees" your cartridges by their serial number, and the ink level will show again once you put in a new cartridge. I suggest you just ignore the message (the estimated ink level is never right anyway), and always look at your printouts- if the colors are faded, or one of the colors is missing, that is a sign that you should refill your cartridges again.
  • Also, if you haven't been printing regularly (at least once a week), the print quality might be poor. You can do a software print head cleaning:
  1. Press the "setup" button on your printer.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select "Tools", then press the ok button.
  3. Select "Clean Print Cartridge", then press ok.
  4. Your printer will then print a test page, which you should examine. If the print quality is good, you're good to go.
  5. If the problem is still there, open the "printer toolbox":
-On your computer, open the Control Panel
-Double click on "Printers and Faxes".
-Right click your printer icon and select "Properties".
-Click on "Printing preferences".
-Click the "Services" tab.
-Then, click on "Service this device" icon.
-The printer toolbox opens.
-On the "Device Services" tab.
-Click on "Clean the print cartridges", then follow the on-screen instructions. (there are three levels of cleaning available). Just bear in mind that software cleaning uses a lot of your ink!


You can also try cleaning the cartridge yourself:
  • Place the clogged nozzles in warm water and soak them until the dried ink begins to flow from the nozzle.
  • After a few minutes of letting the dried ink flow, remove the nozzles from the water and dry it with a soft tissue.

  • If that doesn't help, you might have some air left in your cartridge: try inserting air in the syringe and blow it in one of the refill holes (close the other ones with your fingers). A small amount of ink should be emitted from the nozzles upon injection.
  • Clean the print head and the contacts on your cartridge and pop them back in the printer.
Hope that will help!

Have refilled my colour cartridge for lexmarkx2650 but computer keeps saying its empty and needs replacing.


Read on and see if any applies to you.
Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work

Ink Refill


You have refilled the ink that is why it reports low ink.
The explanation for this, is that the ink cartridge estimates the ink level by using the number of pages you have printed. Once you have reached a pre-programmed number of pages, the ink cartridge reports that it is empty; but it is not necessarily empty.
If it prints then continue printing. However, it will always give a low ink warning. Remember to get it refilled once the pages start getting missing text (or graphics).
If you cannot print, then you will either have to purchase a new cartridge or ask the person at the refill shop to reset it, if it is possible.

Smasung ML2510 Laser print quality poor especially on graphics


Full isn't always the answer, in order to refill a cartridge properly you need to also replace the cleaning blade inside. The blade wears out and doesn't clean the drum properly and also lets toner leak all over. Your best bet is a new OEM cartridge, or put a new cleaning and Dr. blade in yours.

Lexmark 1240 black ink prints in streaks.


Take the cartridges out, then unplug the machine so the cartridge holder stays in the middle. Take a bunch of wet q-tips and clean all around where the ink would come out. Check rollers and anywhere the ink could have dripped. Double check the maint. station, sometimes there is a wiper thingy that jumps up to wipe the inks.
