    Original cartridges do not have a hole to refill. These are drilled with refill kits you purchase or are drilled by companies that are in the refilling business.

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).

I need to know how to refill my ink for my nx110 printer


The ink cartridges used in Epson's Stylus line of printers are very similar to the ones used in its other printers. A handful of cartridges--like the S020034, S020047 or S020049--may require a slightly different refilling technique, but they all basically entail opening a fill hole in the top to run down into the ink chamber within. Once the chamber is accessible, you can use a basic refill kit with a syringe bottle to refill the chamber, as with most printer-ink cartridges.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
1. Hold the cartridge upside down so the outlet holes to the printer paper are on top. Cover each hole with a piece of tape, then turn the cartridge right-side up.

2. Make a hole in the top of the cartridge above each ink chamber. For most cartridges, simply poke a hole through the label with a toothpick. With cartridges like the Epson Stylus 34 (the casing of which is black), pull back the label to reveal the filling holes and puncture the seal of each home. For the 47 or 49 color cartridge, drill a 1/8-inch hole in the shell between the label and front edge.

3. Determine which color of ink is in which chamber (if you're refilling a color cartridge). The toothpick used to puncture the hole should draw out some ink to show you. If you have a cartridge in which you punctured the label directly, the order of the color chambers is usually cyan, magenta and yellow. If you created the hole in another way (like with the 34, 47 or 49 cartridges), the order is usually magenta, cyan and yellow.

4.Fill the syringe bottle with 5ml of ink. Insert the needle in the filling hole and inject the ink. There may be a sponge inside the chamber, so make sure the needle goes all the way through to the bottom. The 34 cartridge takes up to 12ml of ink.

5. Tape over the fill holes you created. If you drilled the holes, plastic plugs (like the ones included in a refill kit) can work as well. Leave the tape on the outlet holes as you replace the cartridge in the Epson Stylus printer.

Don't know exactly where to drill a hole to refill Epsom T0711 printer ink cartridge. Can you help?


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.
You won't need to drill hole anywhere.
Visit this link to get all the instructions required to refill the ink in Epson T0711 cartridge.
But remember you would need a chip resetter gun to re set the chips on the ink cartridges after you refill the cartridges.
Visit this link to buy Universal chip reseter if you don' t have.

Good luck and have a nice day.

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.

I need to refill my ink for a espon stylus cx4400 printer, don't know where the hole is located at the top to put the ink inside


Hi,

Epson have designed their cartridges so that refilling is virtually impossible. Believe me a LOT of money has gone into this so I would forget about trying to refill your original cartridges.

Instead I would recommend locating a reseller for refillable cartridges with a resettable chip... Also, be very careful buying any old ink as there are some very cheap, poor quality inks available which are more likely to clog your printhead and drive you crazy. Good brands to consider are Image Specialists, hobbicolors and OCP but there are others out there.

Hope that helps.

Shows replaced cartridge as empty


The cartridge chip needs to be reset to "full"; for this you need a chip resetter - this should have been done by whoever refilled the cartridge for you. You can get your own Epson chip resetter very cheaply on E-Bay.
