BC-22e Photo CartridgeCanon ink refill instructions

1. Remove plugs on top of cartridge with included eyelet screw.

2. Attach the needle to the syringe and fill with the appropriate color of ink.

3. To verify which color ink is in which chamber, insert a toothpick and check the color of the ink on the toothpick when it is withdrawn. Insert the syringe through the filling hole and push all the way into the cartridge.  (Cover the other three holes with tape while filling one to prevent cross contamination) Note: You may feel a slight pressure because the cartridge contains a sponge.

4. Slowly inject up to 10 ml. of ink, per chamber, then replace the original plugs on the top of the cartridge.
(If they're too badly damaged, don't worry. The plugs are not necessary. You only need cover the holes for extended storage or transportation to prevent leaking or drying out. )

Canon ink refill instructions5. Unused ink may be returned to the bottle. Rinse the syringes with water and dry for future use.

6. Set on a paper towel for an hour as a drip precaution. Expect a few drips -- If there aren't any drips, the sponge is not saturated and ready to print.

Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages: for Black for Color 
For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge. (Allows ink to flow to the print head).

Note: Immediately refill any empty cartridges
