Try Soaking the print head in Warm water for about 3 minutes. Dry off the print head with a paper towel. If you don't see any ink on the paper towel, then the print head is clogged and it will be difficult to unclog the cartridge.
If the warm water doesnt work, then next try some Windex with amonia. Only soak the bottom of the cartridge where the ink comes out. Soak the printhead for about 3 minutes, and then try wiping off the bottom again. Press a dry paper towel on the bottom. If there is no ink then it is probably time to get a new cartridge. In the future, always try to refill your cartridge right away as soon as possible so that the ink in the cartridge/print head doesnt get a chance to dry out.

I hope this helped.
Please leave a rating if I have helped you with your question/problem.
Have a good day and good luck.
Mac =)

Around 70 % of cartridges are reusable , meaning that depending of how old the cartridge is , it dries up the foam inside , making it no longer usable for refill , either nothing coming out or drips the ink a lot , thats why at these places where you can refill ( office max , walgreens , etc. ) they will charge you if cartridge works OK with new ink , if not they ll let you know , hope this information helpful , AJ

Red not printing


if replacing M and/or LM cartridges doesn't fix the problem, there is not much you can do. You can try to get the printer serviced, but probably won't find anyone willing to do the job.

How to refile the cartridge of canon pixma ip1300 printer


Hi,
Instructions :
  1. Remove the old ink jet cartridge from the printer following the manufacturer instructions. Close the lid on the printer to keep it free from dust and debris while you are refilling the Canon ink cartridge.
  2. Locate the ink tank on the cartridge. Put a 3mm drill bit in a drill. Drill a hole in the top of the ink tank on the cartridge.
  3. 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.
  4. Squeeze the ink bottle gently to refill the cartridge. Fill the tank with a little at a time until the cartridge is full.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
Good Luck!

How to refill ink in hp blck cartridge


  • Purchase an ink refill kit at an office supply store. (Staples, Walmart, and Costco all carry this inexpensive kit. It usually costs about half the price of an average printer cartridge.)
  • Gather your kit, a roll of paper towels, and some clear scotch tape together on a large flat working surface, a table or desk.
  • 3Remove the empty cartridge from your printer. (Remember to close your printer lid or door while you are working.)
  • 4Cover your hands with a pair of disposable plastic gloves while you work with the messy ink.
  • 5Take a paper towel and fold it in half twice. Work over the paper towel to catch any leaking ink.
  • 6Place the empty cartridge on it.
  • 7Read the instruction manual included with the refill kit to learn how to refill your particular type of cartridge. (The following instructions are just a general guide).
  • 8Locate the fill holes on the top of the cartridge. The depressions can be felt by rubbing your finger across the label.
  • 9Use a sharp pencil to pierce the refill holes in the top of the ink cartridge. (Correct places can also be found in the kit instructions).
  • 10In addition to black, there are three colors of ink: magenta, cyan, and yellow. Follow the kit instructions on which hole to insert each color OR push a toothpick into the holes to identify the colours as markings on the printer cartridge are sometimes there to fool you into putting the wrong colours into the cartridge ink chambers.
  • 11Insert the long needle on the refill ink bottle into the correct hole.
  • 12Slowly, add the ink. Carefully watch to be sure that you do not over-fill.
  • 13Stop quickly as soon as you see a bit of ink oozing out of the hole. Without letting go of the bottle, slowly release the air, sucking a little ink back out of the ink cartridge, before you remove the needle completely.
  • 14Carefully daub the cartridge contacts on the paper towel, you should see a splotch of the ink leaking out onto the paper towel.
  • 15Cover the hole with a small piece of clear scotch tape. (This works better than the seal dots included in the kit.) Make sure that no ink is leaking out of the top holes. (That's where the clear tape comes in handy.) Be careful not to cross contaminate the colors.
  • 16Repeat steps 11-15 for each ink color.
  • 17After you have refilled all three colors, carefully blot (don't wipe or rub) the cartridge printhead on a folded piece of paper towel. You may need to do this several times. Do this until it stops bleeding and you see an even stripe of three colors showing up on the towel.
  • 18If the blot shows the colors either faded or not at all, blot on wet paper towel and again on dry, to get the ink flowing.
  • 19Replace the ink cartridge into the printer. Never, ever install a leaking print cartridge.
  • 20Immediately print something, anything, just to get the ink flowing. Print several test pages, preferable photos with a lot of different colors.
  • 21Follow the cleaning or priming cycles for your specific printer.

    How to chang ink


    Hello,

    When it is time to replace an ink cartridge in your HP inkjet printer, you will receive a pop up message on your computer screen. Replacing an ink cartridge is just part of owning an inkjet printer, and a tradeoff with the high quality imaging you are able to achieve on an HP inkjet. It is not something a professional needs to do; just follow these simple instructions to complete the change and get right back to printing.

    1. Allow your inkjet printer to run entirely out of ink. Unless the quality of your images is suffering, there is no problem with letting your ink run low.
    2. Open the printer door. It should fold from the top down toward the tray. When it is open, it should expose the inner workings of the printer.
    3. Press the change cartridge button. It is at the top of the printer next to the power button.
    4. Pull on the green top of the inkjet ink cartridge and remove it up and out of its holder. Do this gently so the printer is not damaged in the process.
    5. Recycle the empty inkjet cartridge or have it refilled at an ink refilling center.
    6. Carefully remove the tape from the refilled or new inkjet ink cartridge and insert the cartridge in the same orientation as the one you removed.
    7. Push on the green top until the cartridge snaps into place, press the cartridge change button and close the printer door.
    Good luck.

    Refilling ink cartridges


    hp74a.jpg HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions
    Black cartridge

    Instructions
    1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
    2. Peal off the top label. hp74b.jpg
    3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
    4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
    5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
    6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
    Or print the following pages:
    http://www.refillinstructions.com/black.htm for Black

    For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.
    A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
    One 30cc Syringe
