Question about HP Easy Refill Kit for (HP) Black Inkjet Cartridges Printer

1 Answer

HP 57 refill problem

I use the cartridge until it shows about one fifth full. I remove the cartridge and put apx 3ml of ink in each. When the ink starts to show coming out of the hole I retract a little. I let the cartridge drip off for 30 minutes or so then daub the excess off with a damp cloth. I then let the cartridge rest for several hours. Here is the problem: I put the cartridge into the printer and do a clean cycle. I get no red. At first there will be a few fine lines of red but then it goes to a light green color "pee green". I look at the head and can see all three colors. I have now had this happen on 3 cartridges - all the same problem. I am weary of buying new cartridges and I must be doing something wrong. Please advise.

You are doing nothing wrong. The nozzles are clogged. Try taking a clean syringe and put your finger on one of the magenta (red) refill holes. Fill the syringe with air. Put it on the second magenta refill hole and blow the air inside. That should force out the ink that has dried and that is not letting the new ink come out. You might have to do that several times. Sometimes, it can help.
If that doesn't work, go to a refill shop, they should be able to clean the print nozzles on your cartridge, no need to buy new ones.

How do you refill the black HP 940 ink cartridges? Where is the hole?


While "Solution #1" is true for the older cartridges like the 96 and 57 (I have filled many), the 940 is completely different.
First of all you turn the cartridge upside down, cut the label in between the 940 and the colored rectangle. This simply allows you to pop the cover off (it will still be held by the back label).
Once open, you will see a stem with a silver ring on top, an oval black rubber plug, and the refill hole with a very small rubber ball plugging it. To refill the cartridge you must get this small rubber ball out. You can you a sewing needle or some other sharp object. Be careful not to damage the plug too much - you must put it back in and it can not have a hole throught it. You fill the cartridge through this "port" once the ball has been removed. Then you put the rubber ball back in - use a ball point pen to push it in so you do not damage it.
If you damage the ball, you can purchase more, but obviously you cannot use this cartridge while you are waiting to get a new ball.

Printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty


That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
You can try this:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
Doesn't always work, but you can try.

I refilled HP 88 cartridge but printer (Officejet Pro L7590) still thinks cartridge is empty. How do I reset ink level?


Under the cartridge is a black like pump - on a new cartridge this is hard and rests firmly on an area inside your printer. As you print, the pump becomes softer - this is how the printer determines it is empty. Once refilled, the pump does not get back to the original state. Open the bottom of the cartridge and put a firm solid piece of folded paper in there - make sure it is steady and re-close cartridge. It will now read as full but may also show full - judge ink levels by the quality of print. Also make sure chip has not expired.

After cleaning cartridges and replacing refilled black ink, I removed blck ink and replaced with HP 58 photo ink. this aborted the "check cartridges freeze". I still cannot align cartridges after removing #58 and replacing with new HP 57. the operation starts but will not complete.

Any suggestions on how to align cartridges?

You need to pour 3ml of each color if you have a 342 and up to 5 ml if you have a 343. Magenta is red, cyan is blue. As for the black one, if you have a 336, only one hole has a sponge. You can always check that by inserting the needle in the hole- if you feel pressure, there is a sponge. If not, it's not a refill hole, do not pour ink in it! If you have 338, you have 5 holes and you can pour a bit of ink in each of them. Pour max 10ml if it is 336 and 15ml. if it is 338.
Slowly pour the ink in each refill hole. If it starts leaking, either from the refill hole or the print head), don't panic, just remove 1ml or 2 of ink. When you are done, gently wipe the electric contacts on your cartridges and put them back in.
Here are links, just in case:





If you haven't been printing for a week or so, you might need to do a "nozzle cleaning":
  1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Open HP Solution Center , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox . The Printer Toolbox appears.
  3. Click the Device Services tab.
  4. Click Clean the Print Cartridges .
  5. Follow the prompts until you are satisfied with the quality of the output, and then click Done .
  6. Try the print job again.
Also, your printer will continue telling you that your cartridges are empty. That is normal, because the printer sees the cartridges by their serial number. So, just ignore the warnings.

Hope that helps!
