Hewlett Packard
 #902 Cartridges

 

Theory - The ink in these cartridges are retained because
 the cartridges have an internal sponge. (see picture above)

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

2. With a rubber band tightly put on the orange cap that covered the outlet port.
If you no longer have the orange cap then put on a vinyl glove and put your finger over the outlet port.

This will prevent ink from dripping out while you refill.

3. For the Black 902 cartridge fill the syringe with 13 ml. of black ink.
    For the Color 902 cartridge f
ill the syringe with 8 ml. of the appropriate color of ink.

4. Drill a hole into the colored circle that has either K (black) or C (cyan) or M (magenta) or Y (yellow) on top of the cartridge.

5. Put the syringe needle at least half way down into the drilled hole and very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink.

6. After the ink is injected keep the orange cap on or keep your finger over the outlet port for another minute. This will give the ink time to soak up into the sponge.

 7. Now take off the orange cap or remove your finger from the outlet port and leave the drilled hole open.

8. Put the cartridge(s) back into the printer and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

   On the 902 series cartridges, there is an electronic counter embedded in a small computer chip/board. This counter starts at a high number and decreases for every character printed. Eventually, the counter reaches zero. At this point, an error message is generated by the printer. If you click "OK" to the error message, the printer will continue to print. However, the ink level display will not show correctly with that cartridge. 
   On some HP printers, simply click through the error message and the various warnings. The printer should then print fine. Notice that you will need to do this again when the other cartridges run out of ink.
   On other HP printers, hold the RESUME or RESET button for about 10-15 seconds. This should reset the printer so that it will print with the refilled cartridge.

Instructions

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

Step 2) Turn the cartridge up side down so that the outlet port of the cartridge is facing upward.

Step 3) Fill the syringe with the appropriate color of ink
 
 Step 4) Drip ink onto the felt pad in the outlet port. The felt pad will quickly absorb the ink into the cartridge. If the felt pad will not soak up any more ink and the ink just sits on top or you see some ink coming out of the vent hole located on the opposite side then the sponge is full. Dab a paper towel onto the felt pad to soak up any ink that did not get absorbed into the cartridge.
It goes without saying that you want to put the correct color into the correct chamber. Don't drip yellow ink onto the cyan felt pad and wonder why you are now getting green.
Note: Do not pierce the felt pad with the needle of the syringe.

Step 5) Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

If necessary leave cartridge in printer for up to 4 hours to allow the ink to saturate the entire sponge.
