Question about Epson Stylus CX3810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Refilling black cartridge

Problem: Using a refill kit and following instructions to a "T" . . .after filling the black ink cartridge of the "Epson stylus cx3810" the printer does not acknowledge the fact . . .it still gives the message that the cartridge is empty.

I have read that you can reset the ink monitor on other brands but I can't find instructions for this model.

Could you please advise on how to get the printer to acknowledge that the cartridge has been replaced/refilled.

Please respond to clayton380@yahoo.com

Thank You

The printer will never do that, once the cartridge is spent a little divine device inside tells the printer it's been used and spent. You can still print to from the cartridge but it wont warn you when your low on ink, price you pay for not buying a new cartridge.

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.

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.

I want to know how to refill original TO551,552,553 and 554 cartridges at home


My friend, in my experience, when you purchase these kits, they come with all the tools, ink and instructions needed to ruine (ops, sorry) to fill your cartridges.

I have never had any success with refilling these ink cartridges and in fact have ruined two printers with refilled units (A Canon and a Epson). I know the ink is expensive.

Listen, I have never had a printer go out of service by using the manufacturers genuine branded cartridges and I have never been disappointed with the results. If $ is a concern, you can set your printer to print in draft mode for most printing. Epson has other tips on economizing the printer cost at their website.

How do i refill the ink cartridges on epson stylus nx100


hose cartriges cant be refilled unless you buy a kit that has a chip resetter, to reset the ink level.

Without the chip being reset, the printer will think a filled cart. is still empty.

Any kit you get will have complete instructions.

I have an Epson stylus nx400 printer. I bought the ink refill kits that were recommended for it, but it's not listed on the instructions. I just want instructions on how to refill my cartridges.


Use syringre with small outlet. Fill from bottom side of ink tank. Better you don't refill ink tank. It will distort rubber seal at bottom side of ink tank. Then ink will leak. After refilling, you must reset ink counter. Do you have chip resetter?

Ink refill


You can do a search on Google using "Epson C84 Refill Instructions" which will produce plenty of hits. However, this one gives very clear instructions:

http://www.refillinkcartridges.co.uk/news/2008/10/16/epson-c84-ink-cartridge-refill-instructions/

If you only bought refill ink rather than a refill kit, and don't have rubber plugs, you can successfuly re-seal the filling hole using a small amount of epoxy resin e.g. araldite. This is easy to remove with a sharp knife the next time you want to fill it. Note the need for a cartridge re-setting tool - these can be purchased very cheaply on E-Bay.

I bought some refillable ink cartridges for my epson rx 595 printer. I have the ink to refill them, but do not know how. is there any instructions you can help with, or suggest a site that can help. thanks...


You can't refill Epson cartridges unless you have a microchip resetting tool.

The process is messy and you take a chance on flooding your printer if you get it wrong.

Why not buy affordable ink cartridges brand new and ready to use. They are called compatible cartridges because the are not made by Epson but they are for Epson printers, manufactured by other reputable companies and replicated by chemists to get the ink quality just right for the printer model they are intended for.

Don't believe the frightening stories you hear about compatible cartridges, believe me if you are going to refill cartridges using a refill kit, it has GENERIC ink in it and this is so it works on all printers and so it is not specific to yours and will give poor results.

You don't have to buy our ink, feel free to search the NET and find a retailer of your choosing, but don't use refill kits for your own sake.

I hope this helps

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
