Refilling a printer cartridge

I'm using a Lexmark X2470 all-in-one printer which uses a Lexmark 1 cartridge. I recently bought a refill kit with syringes to inject the ink. My problem is that I don't see where exactly and how to inject which colour. Olease help me in this regard. Even the CD with the manual from the refill manufacturing company doesn't help.

    The catridge I use is labelled 1 and those in the link do not include it. When trying to open the top of the catridge as indicated it doesn't come off and I'm afraid of damaging the cetridge if I force matters, will you be in a position to help me with a link for the exact catridge?

Some cartridges have a natural hole in the top to screw into and make bigger, and you inject the ink here. Others you have to actually physically gently cut the top off (using a very sharp and very thin blade, i use a craft exchangeable blade kit like a pen knife) adn some just lift off. My lexmark 27 has to be sliced apart then lifts off after seal is broken. Then the ink is injected directly into the sponge areas inside as pamphlet instructs. Can you please tell me exactly what the cd said in short, to further help. Some cartridges have a ruber bung to refil into as well.

Why after I recharged cartridge, printer asks me to install it?

Lexmark cartridges are basically designed to fail after their first use so that they can not be refilled. As the owner of a printer cartridge refilling shop, we deal with this everyday. The only solution is to replace it with a working cartridge. In our shop we have a special machine that checks the cartridges before we refill them to make sure they will work again, many don't pass this test.

Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

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).

Or print the following pages:
