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.

I don't know how to refill?


Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.

1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover.
2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle.
3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta.
4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole.
5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel.
6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?


Follow these steps:
1.
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).
2.
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.
3.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
4.
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.
5.
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.

How to refill ink in hp blck cartridge


  • Purchase an ink refill kit at an office supply store. (Staples, Walmart, and Costco all carry this inexpensive kit. It usually costs about half the price of an average printer cartridge.)
  • Gather your kit, a roll of paper towels, and some clear scotch tape together on a large flat working surface, a table or desk.
  • 3Remove the empty cartridge from your printer. (Remember to close your printer lid or door while you are working.)
  • 4Cover your hands with a pair of disposable plastic gloves while you work with the messy ink.
  • 5Take a paper towel and fold it in half twice. Work over the paper towel to catch any leaking ink.
  • 6Place the empty cartridge on it.
  • 7Read the instruction manual included with the refill kit to learn how to refill your particular type of cartridge. (The following instructions are just a general guide).
  • 8Locate the fill holes on the top of the cartridge. The depressions can be felt by rubbing your finger across the label.
  • 9Use a sharp pencil to pierce the refill holes in the top of the ink cartridge. (Correct places can also be found in the kit instructions).
  • 10In addition to black, there are three colors of ink: magenta, cyan, and yellow. Follow the kit instructions on which hole to insert each color OR push a toothpick into the holes to identify the colours as markings on the printer cartridge are sometimes there to fool you into putting the wrong colours into the cartridge ink chambers.
  • 11Insert the long needle on the refill ink bottle into the correct hole.
  • 12Slowly, add the ink. Carefully watch to be sure that you do not over-fill.
  • 13Stop quickly as soon as you see a bit of ink oozing out of the hole. Without letting go of the bottle, slowly release the air, sucking a little ink back out of the ink cartridge, before you remove the needle completely.
  • 14Carefully daub the cartridge contacts on the paper towel, you should see a splotch of the ink leaking out onto the paper towel.
  • 15Cover the hole with a small piece of clear scotch tape. (This works better than the seal dots included in the kit.) Make sure that no ink is leaking out of the top holes. (That's where the clear tape comes in handy.) Be careful not to cross contaminate the colors.
  • 16Repeat steps 11-15 for each ink color.
  • 17After you have refilled all three colors, carefully blot (don't wipe or rub) the cartridge printhead on a folded piece of paper towel. You may need to do this several times. Do this until it stops bleeding and you see an even stripe of three colors showing up on the towel.
  • 18If the blot shows the colors either faded or not at all, blot on wet paper towel and again on dry, to get the ink flowing.
  • 19Replace the ink cartridge into the printer. Never, ever install a leaking print cartridge.
  • 20Immediately print something, anything, just to get the ink flowing. Print several test pages, preferable photos with a lot of different colors.
  • 21Follow the cleaning or priming cycles for your specific printer.

    Ink refill


    You can do a search on Google using "Epson C84 Refill Instructions" which will produce plenty of hits. However, this one gives very clear instructions:

    http://www.refillinkcartridges.co.uk/news/2008/10/16/epson-c84-ink-cartridge-refill-instructions/

    If you only bought refill ink rather than a refill kit, and don't have rubber plugs, you can successfuly re-seal the filling hole using a small amount of epoxy resin e.g. araldite. This is easy to remove with a sharp knife the next time you want to fill it. Note the need for a cartridge re-setting tool - these can be purchased very cheaply on E-Bay.

    Dell 926 Printer ink refill instructions


    I don't have a Dell but we have Lexmarks which use similar cartridges. I'm guessing your color and black has a flat top. Your printer should be using a 2 cartridge system and most likely w/ 4 colors. Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. The Black cartridge is a single color cartridge. The CMY (short for Cyan,Magenta,Yellow) is in another cartridge. If you don't know which one, get a paper tower and dab the bottom of the cartridge near the nozzles which are usual silver in color. If you have the color you now need a very thin needle to fit those very small holes. If your needle wont fit then you will have to enlarge the holes. To refill,you really will enlarge it anyway to inject the syringe needles in. Stick the needle into the hole as deep as you can and stop just before you hit bottom. Just approximate the height of the cartridge to the needle. When you take the needle out, use a paper towel or toilet paper to wipe off the ink. What you wipe off will be the color of that chamber. You just need to do one more on any of the 2 remaining holes. Label as you go so you know what color it is. Don't do mental gymnastics. One mistake means you either print w/wrong colors or buy a new cartridge. I'm not familiar w/ the cartridge so I'm guessing on the color you should put between 1-2ml of ink per color. On the black maybe 5-8ml. This is to be on the safe side. Don't overfill it. There's no guarantee your cartridge will print, cuz manual refills are not as good as those done on a machine. If it works you may be able to refill another 2-3 times. Manual refilling is a gamble. Just ink the ink in very slowly and be patient. take about 15-20 seconds to inject 1 ml. Hope this helps.

    How To Refill?


    Harry, you can use every DYE ink for brother printers. DO NOT use pigmented ink due to clogged filters inside the printhead!!!! The carts for mfc210 are filled with 20ml for BK and 11ml for C/Y/M. I use to refill 20ml only ink for bk and 10ml ink + 1ml printhead cleaner for C/Y/M. See here how to do that (LC900 refill): http://www.hstt.net/refill-faq/brother.html#LC-900 Refillen (Simply drill a hole into the brother brandname and leave it open!) I use a 20ml syringe and 3 12(10+2)ml syringes from the drugstore (ask your doc! It may be cheaper ;-)
