I just prised off the lid with a sharp knife . then you can see where the holes need to be. drill holes . make sure your rubber bungs fit in nicely not too tight. fill inks before super gluing lid back into place. when i fill the colour tank i dip the end of the filling needle into the reservoir ... you can clearly see the colour you need to fill easy!!

you can try to open the cover from the ink container, it is sealed so it will be kind of hard.you can make a hole on top of the cover. big enough for a needle to go in. to refil the printer remove first , the seal on the catridge to uncover the filling holes. To do this either trap the cap in a vice and leaver it off, or carefully use a penknife to remove it. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
Enlarge the fill holes with the drill . Tightly tape the ink delivery holes at the base of the cartridge before refilling.
Assemble the syringe and needle, pierce the bottle seal and fill with ink
Gently insert the needle on the bottle of ink into the hole you just drilled in the ink cartridge. Avoid squeezing the bottle until the needle is completely inserted in the ink tank.
Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
Remove the needle from the ink tank. Wipe the top of the Canon ink cartridge off with a paper towel. Place a small piece of duct tape over the drilled hole. Rub the tape to remove air bubbles and to make sure it adheres to the cartridge.
Put the refilled ink cartridge back into the printer. Clean the head of the printer by running the printer software and following the instructions for head cleaning.
If you are filling a colour cartridge clean the syringe and needle thoroughly with water before filling with the next colour ink.
Whilst holding the cartridge upright over a sink or basin, carefully remove the tape from the delivery holes. Ink will probably drip from the cartridge for a while. Do not allow colours to mix at the outlet ports.
When the cartridge has stopped dripping carefully blot the bottom with some absorbent material taking care not to cross contaminate the colours
You can refill them but you have to do it striaght away otherwise it dries up and is knackered. Do it yourself remove the label on top and drill 3 holes for the colour (you can get a guide for it with refill kits) sending them somewhere will cause them to dry up, as they need doing as soon as you loose a colour.
For now get a new cart and fill that when it runs out.
IF YOU HAVE BUY THE INKS THEN YOU GET NIDLE AND SIRING THEN YOU WILL USE THE TECHNIC DOCTOR USE TO SWAP THE LIQUID FROM THE CONTAINER AND INJECT IT IN THE BODY YOU WILL USE THE SAME TECHNICS GET THE INK IN TO THE SIRING AND PUT IT IN THE CARTRIDGE BUT MIND YOU LOOK AT THE HOLES VERY WELL RED HOLE WILL BE MARK RED, BLUE WILL BE MARK BLUE WHILE YELOW WILL BE MARK YELOW SO ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS FOR YOU TO PUT THE INK IN THE RIGHT HOLE IN SOME CARTRIDGE THE HOLES WILL GUIDE BY A OBJECT REMOVE CAREFULLY THEN AS YOU FINISH REFILLING EACH HOLE PUT THE OBJECT BACK.
After nightmares myself - I eventually took the printhead out with the cartridges still in - get an old towel or loads of tissues and wrap around the bottom of the printhead so you dont get ink all over yourself - try not touch the green bits - then blow through the tiny holes on top of the cartridges. After a while youll hear a splat - and will see the ink has blown through - wipe clean - put ink head back into printer - re-align printhead and try printing. After 3 weeks of mine not working/printing this made it work again! hope this helps!
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.
i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.
