How to refil a epson cartridge

Where do I pierce the cartridge to refill with ink.

Posted by on

  • RobinCurtis Mar 16, 2008

    This answer (As far as i know, they pierce themselves once you put them into the ink cartridge.) doesn't help at all. The person needs to know where in the ink cartridge to insert the hypodermic needle before injecting the ink. I had the same trouble and ended up with cyan ink everywhere but in the cartridge. I tried injecting under the sticker on the side; first in the center of the circular pattern, right near the colored ball image... then thru the plastic film on the bottom near the extraction port. Cartridge wouldn't accept ink and it leaked everywhere,.... couldn't seal puncture holes.
    Anyone know where to put the needle??

The biggest problem is the chip on the cartridge You can refill it, but the chip will not let you print.

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 do I refill the Epson Stylus SX125 ink cartridges ?


You can refill an Epson ink cartridge, but you will need an "SK168-II Chip Resetter" to clear and reset the cartridge memory chip. The cartridge will still show as empty after refilling and not work until it is reset. The refill ink should have come with an instruction sheet. If not check their web site for instructions. If the cartridge has been empty for a while and you can hear the sponge inside when shaking it - it has fried out and cannot be refilled. The dust particles from the dried sponge will plug up the jets.

Some aftermarket printer ink sales web sites will offer the chip resetter for Epson printers.

Epson Stylus TX400. Refuses to accept either compatable or refilled cartridges?


Epson TX400 is so sensitive in terms of ink cartridges, you can only replace a refilled ink cartridge in this type of printer if the cartridge has an automatic ink reseter chip. When you replace a cartridge in your printer, it will automatically register the ink level in the chip. So you need an ink reseter chip to replace a new refilled cartridge.

Don't know where the refill hole is? Epson stylus c120 ink refill


The Epson 68 cartridges cannot be legally refilled at this time. There are two chips that monitor the ink levels. Once the ink gets below 25% the inner chip deactivates the outer chip so it cannot be reset. Any replacement chips you can buy are technically violating patent law. To refill these you would need a chip resetter and always refill it before it gets below 25%. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would not recommend refilling these yourself unless you enjoy getting ink everywhere and possibly still not having the cartridge work (btw there is no "refill hole" you make it yourself, thus the messiness).

How to refill an Epson printer Cartridge T0881 Black ink, have the set although instruction do not include this model.


To refill epson cartridges, you will need a resetter of the cartridge to restore the ink level back to full content.

You can buy a spongeless cartridges with an autoreset chips for your printer so that you will not need the ink cartridge resetter anymore since it will auto reset. This is my suggestion since spongeless cartridges are easy to refill than the genuine cartridges. Hope you can find in your area. If not, you can go to the nearest ink refilling center in your area and you can let them teach you if they will. Hope it would help.

Refilled the ink and it is still saying it needs


Unfortunately, you may need to buy new Epson manufactured ink cartridges. Some of the ink cartridges and/or printers have a setting that says this cartridge is empty and refilling the cartridge does not clear the empty code.

I bought some refillable ink cartridges for my epson rx 595 printer. I have the ink to refill them, but do not know how. is there any instructions you can help with, or suggest a site that can help. thanks...


You can't refill Epson cartridges unless you have a microchip resetting tool.

The process is messy and you take a chance on flooding your printer if you get it wrong.

Why not buy affordable ink cartridges brand new and ready to use. They are called compatible cartridges because the are not made by Epson but they are for Epson printers, manufactured by other reputable companies and replicated by chemists to get the ink quality just right for the printer model they are intended for.

Don't believe the frightening stories you hear about compatible cartridges, believe me if you are going to refill cartridges using a refill kit, it has GENERIC ink in it and this is so it works on all printers and so it is not specific to yours and will give poor results.

You don't have to buy our ink, feel free to search the NET and find a retailer of your choosing, but don't use refill kits for your own sake.

I hope this helps

How to refil a epson cartridge


Hi there

It depends on the cartridge - the genuine Epson cartridges and the various clones are not all constructed in the same way. Do a google search on "epson c67 cartridge refill instructions" and review the various recommendations - you will soon see which best applies to your cartridges. Note, however, that the chip restter manufacturers do not guarantee to work with all clone cartridges.
