Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

I want to refill the ink cartridges (black 30 - colour31) myself....how do I do it?

Just got this Canon MP210. Uses colour 31 or CL41 colour cartridges and uses black 30 or 40 cartridges. I would like to refill the ink myself, but can't figure out how to do it. I used to have an HP Officejet and I refilled those cartridges all the time. How do I refill the new Canon cartridges

    hi... it's great that the 3 holes of the colour cartridge is shown, but what about the black cartridge no. 40. There are 2 holes. Do I drill under the label, or is it the one which shows just above the curve/half oval?

Thanks this is helpful

Hi there,
Filling is easy - but messy. I use No 40 cartridges for my pixma ip2200.
For the black cartridge, carefully remove the label. Drill a 2-3mm dia. hole in the depression in the top. With a syringe fill, using about 10ml of black ink. Plug the hole with a suitable bung and away you go!
You will however lose the ink level indication as it is not a genuine cartridge - but that is unreliable anyway.
Don't refill more than a couple of times as the foam inside the case eventually perishes and all the ink runs out.

Whilst the cartridge is out of the printer give the jets a wipe with a wet tissue. This is usually quite effective in removing dried on ink.

You can do the same with 41 colour cartridges but it is a bit more tricky locating the correct place to drill.

Good luck

    It can be helpful if you fit the grey protector that the cartridge came with during filling. - less mess!

    Hello again..

    No41 drilling positions:

    Hope this helps. Top hole is magenta, bottom left is blue and bottom right is yellow. Yes it is a bit messy!

    Use less ink in the colour cartridge than in the black one, Try 5mls for a start.

After refilling he black an coloured cartridge, i always get the error E 5 and the lights B and C are flashing orange. I already changed the cartridges several times.


Using refills and non-canon inks can cause issues with the printer. You can damage the print head and fill up the waste ink tank faster then needed..

Best of luck..

The ink cartriges wont fit into the printer.


This printer uses PG-30 and Cl-31 ink tanks. You can also use PG-40 and CL41. Open paper output tray. Turn on the machine and lift up the scanning unit or printer cover. Pull unit support down into place and the ink holder will move to the left. Gently remove cartridges and install new ones. Let me know of outcome.

You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers the serial numbers encoded in the electronics of the cartridges that have been in the printer. If your printer sees the same serial number in a row it will kick out the cartridge. HP printers don't use this same system to reject cartridges. I recommend Cartridge World refills or refills from anywhere that has a high turnover of these cartridges so you don't get one with the same serial number.
