Refill Instructions for Canon
 Color Cartridge
211 and 211XL

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

2. Peel off the top label.

3. You will notice three small holes (too small for a syringe needle to get into). Drill each hole larger with a thumb drill.

4. Fill the syringe with 5 ml. of color ink.

5. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into each chamber until the sponge full

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

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