MODIFY THE CARTRIDGE
The cap on the top of the cartridge must be removed. Hold the cartridge with the
label facing you. Insert the blade of the knife where the cap meets the cartridge
and twist. The cap should pop off very easily. You can also grab the cap with
pliers and crack it off. Be careful not to break the finger on the back of the cartridge.
This finger holds the cartridge into the print head. The cap is not need
IDENTIFYING THE VENT HOLE
Once the cap is off your will see 6 holes. The 3 larger holes are not fill holes.
The smaller holes are the fill holes. In order to inject the ink you must first
drill out the fill holes. Using the thumb drill provided, drill into each small hole
until you feel the drill go through the plastic. Optionally you may put a piece of
tape over the outlet hole to prevent the cartridge from dripping while refilling. You are
now ready to inject the ink.
INJECTING THE INK
Tape over the two holes which you AREN'T filling to prevent ink contamination or have the
hole you are filling slightly angled down in case you over fill the ink will run away from
the other two holes. Each color can only take about 3 cc when empty, so don't expect much.
Insert the needle all the way into the cartridge deep into the hard sponge.
Inject S-L-O-W-L-Y to fill the entire cartridge. Be sure to remove and re-insert the
needle a few times to expose the entire sponge to the ink.
Set on a paper towel for an hour as a drip precaution. Expect a few drips. Cover all holes
during storage to prevent leaks and evaporation.
Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer
Or print the following pages:
