Refill Instructions
for Black and Color cartridges.


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

2. Seal the outlet hole(s) with the aluminum tape provided.

3.Fill the syringe with 10 ml. of black ink or 5 ml. of color ink.  Push needle through the label into the sponge of the correct filling hole. On the color cartridge the inks from left to right are, CYAN - MAGENTA - YELLOW (You can double check the ink colors by looking at the outlet ports before putting on the tape) HP ink refill instructions

4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into the sponge until the cartridge is full. A little ink might come out of the top when full, so cover up the other two holes while filling one.

5. When finished, seal the Filling Hole(s) made in the top label with tape.  If the holes are not sealed properly the cartridge will leak.

6. Important - Next, remove the Tape from all exit port(s).

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

http://www.refillinstructions.com/color.htm for Color 
For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.

8) Check your printer's user manual about resetting the ink levels back to full. If your printer does not have this option of resetting the cartridge then you will need to deactivate the ink level monitor.

If you don't do this, once the cartridge reads empty (even though you refilled it) the printer will refuse to print.

An alternate method of refilling if you are careful would be to leave the cartridge in the printer and to top off the colors (or black) very S-L-O-W-L-Y. Be sure to seal the filling hole(s) with tape after refilling.


The ink in this cartridge is retained because the cartridge has an internal sponge.

For best results, never leave your HP printer without an installed cartridge -- even an empty one -- for more than an hour or so, because the ink -- the original or our refill ink -- will begin to gel to the consistency of honey, which will require multiple cleaning routines to clear.

     If the cartridge does not print the most likely problem is that you have an air bubble in the exit tube of your cartridge. Remember that the absence of ink is the same as an air bubble.
     What is happening is that a small air bubble expands under the vacuum of printing to form a large air bubble, which blocks the flow of ink to the printhead. This problem usually occurs after printing 1 or 2 good pages.
     To clear the problem, you may wish to let the printer sit without printing for several minutes, while tapping on the top of the cartridge. This may get the air bubble to move to the top of the cartridge. It may not.
     Another idea is to remove the cartridge and try again. Also, try putting a single drop of ink directly into the cartridge outlet port. But be very careful not to spill the ink!
