The printout is smear.


Did you attempt to refill the ink cartridge yourself? If so, we suggest you remove and clean the cartridge's thoroughly as you may have overfilled it. Resolutions steps are provided on our Inkjet411 support page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

Best to let professional refillers conduct this type of service to avoid these kinds of issues. Our network of ink refill retailers stand behind the product and performance - guaranteed. For store locations and details on ink refill pricing:

Just bring your ink cartridges into any of our authorized refill center locations. The in-store representatives (at either Photo/Electronics support center) are trained to refill over 270 different ink cartridge types from all the major manufacturers (i.e. HP, Epson, Canon, Lexmark and Dell) and can answer any additional questions you may have. It typically takes less than an hour to complete the refill from the time you drop the cartridges off. Our network of retailers stand behind the product and performance - guaranteed. All of our inks are Made in America and closely match original manufacturer's ink quality - we are sure you'll be satisfied with both color 'pop' and image longevity performance.

Save Money. Save The Environment.

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone ink cartridges (sold via the internet and usually made in China by 3rd party sources) are considered unreliable as the 'chips' are known to be problematic from time to time and can cause permanent PRINTHEAD failures due to incompatible ink formulations (see Buyer's Laboratory, Jan 2014 report). We do not suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges. Using and refilling of manufacturer's original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested, otherwise permanent PRINTHEAD failures may result:

How to convert photosmart printer cartridge to refillable one


Yes conversion kits are available. I always recommend using a brand specific kit rather than the universal.

One company 4InkJets, claims that, "Our HP Ink Refill Kits are not universal kits. Each Refill Kit is specifically designed to work with a specific HP cartridge. Our refill kits are the best way to save money and still print at high quality. All of our HP Ink refill kits are dual refill kits which means you can fill up your cartridges twice. We also have clear and easy instructions on how to refill your cartridges. Our refill kits are backed by a one year 100% satisfaction guarantee."

I have a universal color inkjet refill kit need to know to apply to my laserjet 4000 toner cartridge C4127X


Short answer: you cannot use any INKJET refill kit for a Laser Printer!

Laser Printers use TONER (e.g. powder) and not INK.

Hope it helps!

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?


Follow these steps:
1.
Buy an Epson ink refill kit. A refill kit gives you all the tools you need to refill Epson ink cartridges. Kits typically include a syringe, rivets, ink, and instructions on how to refill the cartridge. You can find Epson ink refill kits on the Printer Filling Station along with instructions for each specific model (see Resources).
2.
Cover your workspace with a paper towel and fill up the syringe with the ink color you need. Epson refill kits will either include black ink or the color combination cyan, yellow and magenta. On average, you'll need 10 ml of black ink or 5 ml of color ink for Epson ink cartridges.
3.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
4.
Empty the contents of the syringe into the Epson ink cartridge. You'll want to perform this action slowly in order to avoid spilling or overfilling the cartridge.
5.
Remove the rivets. Use tape to cover the holes you made in the ink cartridge. Return the ink cartridge to the printer. Allow the printer to go through several print cycles in order to ensure that the Epson printer operates properly.

In case of any additional help please revert back

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.

Brother mfc210c


two ways to refill lc41:

drill a 2 mm hole into the brandname (e.g. O of brother ) on top of the cart. You can leave the hole open and leave the carts in the printer in future for further refilling ;-)

The cart can be refilled by inserting a syringe without a needle into the ink Outlet(!) at the bottom, too. Carefully press a 12ml for C/Y/M and ca. 15ml - 18ml for BK into the carts.


Anyway:
Do use DYE-ink only!
Important: You must mix the dye-ink with some 85%-glycerin alc. to keep the print head nozzels alive = 10ml ink with 2ml glycerin alc (drugstore).
For BK: 15ml ink + 1,5ml glycerin alc!

HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One Printer cartridges


allright, i had two and i just cut one in half, there's no inner ink reservoir -the body of the cartridge is itself the container. so you can just buy a refill kit (mine is the NCR Universal black inkjet refill kit) it's about 10 bucks at the local walgreens and it comes with a little hand drill and the tape to seal up the hole. the process can be a little messy, so be sure and do it near your more valuable textiles. what's cool about these kits is that they carry about as much ink as you'd find in 8 cartridges, so it'll save you about 75-100 bucks. and 4 or 5 trips to the computer store. Some other cartridges, made for other printers, have a little sticker that you peel back to reveal a hole already drilled -and, what's more if you're impressing one of your inkless friends, be sure and pack some new tape in your bag before you go over there and ink up the guts of their printer.
