Canon Cartridge 210 and 210XL Black

Refill Instructions for Black cartridge


1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.

2. Peel the top label off

3. You will see a very small vent hole in the middle of the cartridge. This hole is too small for a needle to go through so you will have to drill the hole larger.

4. Fill the syringe with 15 ml. of black ink.

5. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into the drilled hole.

6. When finished, leave the label off or cut it short and put it back on being sure not to cover up the drilled hole. This will be the cartridge's vent hole.

7. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages: for Black

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.

Note: Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an "empty cartridge" message appears and a blinking amber light will come on, on the printer. Holding the paper feed (or stop/reset) button down for 3-5 sec. will allow you to override the counter.

A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
