Hewlett Packard Photo-Smart Printer
STAR AND MOON CARTRIDGES
1. The filling holes are located on the top of the cartridge and are sealed with small plastic plugs. These must be removed by pushing them into the cartridge using a pointed instrument. (A ball point pen works well or a push pin).
2 Fill the syringe with 10cc of ink. Insert the filling needle into
the filler hole of the color to be refilled (see diagram) and push downwards into the
bottom of the cartridge. Note the cartridge contains a sponge and a slight
resistance may be felt.
3. S-l-o-w-l-y inject the first 1cc toward the bottom then inject the other 9cc s-l-o-w-l-y as you pull the needle up through the sponge. (If all the ink is injected at the bottom where the printhead is, some of the color will seep into another colors chamber and cross contaminate. If this happens it will eventually flush itself out with printing) Do not reseal the filling holes. Important: Do not inject the last cc if it is air bubbles.
4. Set above a paper towel for an hour as a drip precaution. Do not allow the cartridge to touch the paper, since the paper will draw out the ink
5. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer
The Aluminum tape is to cover the other two holes while filling one.
A Refill Kit should include Ink plus
