Refill ink cartridges

You are advised not to refill the ink cartridges manually. Doing so might affect the performance of your printer.

  • Ensure that your printer is powered up. Lift the ink cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the middle of the printer. Wait until the printer is inactive and quiet before you proceed. Gently push down the ink cartridge to remove it, and then take the ink cartridge out of its slot.
  • You will need a 1 ml expendable syringe. There is usually a black region in the white sticker over the top-cover of the cartridge. You can peel off the sticker to spot the hole.
  • Make sure that the needle size is very small. If you draw ink into the syringe too quickly, you will cause air-gaps. Air-gaps might deter your ink cartridge’s performance. Before you inject ink through the hole ensure that there are no air-bubbles. Keep a piece of paper or cloth to wipe any stains that might occur during the process. Inject the ink into the cartridge.
  • Ensure that you do not overfill the cartridge beyond its capacity. It is advised that you fill the cartridge only to near-capacity and not completely. After the cartridge is replenished, it should be permitted to set for a few hours. This enables the ink to settle inside the cartridge.
  • Once the ink settles, lift the cartridge by its sides with the nozzles pointing toward the printer, and then place the cartridge into its slot. Ensure that the cartridge is placed in its dedicated slot.
  • The tri-color cartridge is usually fixed on the left and the black cartridge sits in the slot to the right. Press the cartridge into its slot until it locks into position. Repeat the process to remove the cartridge, if needed. Close the Cartridge access door.

Print Jobs Stuck in Print Queue
