Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer
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
Thanks this is helpful

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.
