The printer is made for the ink cartridges to be replaced. Some drill a small hole in the top and fill it for there. Any area of the top,where you can make and cover the hole will work. Yes. I would use that ink.The worst that will happen is that it will be too thick or thin and not print properly. You would know that soon enough.

Canon mx330 how to change ink cartridges


Use the thumb drill to literally drill a hole into the side of the old cartridge. Make sure to chose a location that's closer to the top of the ink cartridge to avoid over spillage when you add the new ink. Once you have the hole just squeeze in some ink of corresponding color into the hole. Not a huge amount, but enough to get some use out of it before the next refill. I highly recommend covering the hole afterward with a sticker or something so that you don't dry out the cartride. Reinsert the cartridge into the printer and use. (: All set!

*Note: You may have to reset the count on the cartridge to avoid getting messages that the ink need to be changed. From here on in, use your eyes to determine if the cartridge needs a refill (:

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!

When refilling canon ip4500 cartridge they still show empty


I'm sorry you got that STUPID answer first. The Canon cartridges you use have a chip or small circuit board on the bottom front. You have to either reset that chip or get the reset chips from the place you get your ink. That little chip tells your printer how much ink has been used and once they are empty refilling doesn't help without a new or reset chip.

Pixima i4500 not able to use refilled inks


You can't reset the machine but the place where you buy ink should have the reset chips, or a chip resetter device that will reset the ink carts so you can refill them and use them in your printer.

Refilling a cartridge


You need to use a very thin needle (25 gauge medical needle works well) on a syringe. There is a tiny hole in the canon 40 cartridge under the label which you need to fill. To refill the color cartridge (canon 41) as you look at the cartridge, the hole at the top is magenta, the hole to the left is blue and the hole to the right is yellow, use a separate syringe and needle for each color. Every now and then you will need to use some cartridge cleaner to soften/clean the sponge in the cartridge. I use 0.5cc of cleaner then let sit overnight before adding ink. You need to be sure the label is replaced well or use good tape to keep the ink from escaping.

How to refill ip4500 ink cartridge


Google is your friend...

1.There are various ways to refill but the most popular or easily recognisable is the Durchstich German method...


2. In terms of the cartridge chips you will need a chip resetter which again can be found by searching... Another popular brand name is "redsetter".


3. Refilling can damage your printer, especially if you disable ink monitoring rather than using a chip resetter, or fail to fill the cartridge properly.

Various things can go wrong like an unsealed air hole allowing an air leak, emptying the ink contents into the printer..

As with all things, your mileage may vary and the most successful refillers are those who read as much as possible on the subject, get the right tools and are patient.

Good luck.

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


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
