To refill the ink, you have two options.
1 you can try to open the cover from the ink container, it is sealed so it will be kind of hard.
2you can make a hole on top of the cover. big enough for a needle to go in.

do the one is easier for you.
after having the ink container open you need to inject the ink really slowly. inside of the container it is a sponge. it will absorbe the ink you are applying but it takes its time, dont rushed o it will be just a big mess, keep refilling until you think it is full o do a research and see the real amount of ink that comes in the original cartidrage.
replay as many times you want. after reseal the container if you opened. if you made a hole just tape it. it has to be closed otherwise it will dry.

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

Almost all printers nowadays have a special integrated circuit inside the cartridges that decreases a counter each time they are used and that is how they know the ink is empty. They also DO NOT reset when you refill the cartridge - this is a way to force you to buy brand new ones...

There are ways to reset the printers after installing refilled cartridges - some need special electronic devices to do it, others only need to push some buttons in a specific order. Please, check these four links and tell us if they helped you solve this problem:

Is there a cheaper way to replace the Canon MP240 ink cartridges by using a generic source?


I would not recommend using generics for the PG-210 CL-211. Canon builds these style cartridges with what we simply call a "digital fuse". Basically there is coding on the cartridge that turns the cartridge off once the printer believes it to be empty. For this reason we do not refill these cartridges in our shop, nor do we suggest refills at all. If you would like to use refills, Canon printers that take the 221 series cartridges refill well and are reliable. But make sure you only use refills of Canon original cores. Internet "compatibles" commonly don't fit right, or have communication errors.
