#44

Instructions

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

2. Peel off the top label.

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

4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into the hole closest to the copper strip. Any hole will actually do, they all go to the same sponge, but the first hole is closest to the printhead.

5. When finished leave the top label off and the filling holes exposed (when printing it has to pull in air).

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

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

Note: Some of the newer Lexmark cartridges have very small holes and the needle will not fit into it. In that case just use the thumb drill provided and drill the hole larger.

  • Lexmark offers for sale two different versions of the same cartridge:
  • The regular version (#23, #24, #28, #29, #41, #42) is not refillable. It is the "Return Program" or "Prebate" cartridge. Supposedly, when you buy this cartridge you agree to return the empty cartridge to Lexmark. In return, Lexmark gives you roughly $5 off the retail list price of the cartridge.
  • The "A" version (#23A, #24A, #28A, #29A, #41A, #42A) can easily be refilled. However, the price of the cartridge is roughly $5 higher than the regular version, so most people unknowingly buy the regular version.
  If you want to refill, you will need "A" version cartridges.

A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
One 30cc Syringe
One Thumb Drill
