To refill a Canon cartridge you need:
Remove the cartridge from the printer. To do this, first read the instructions to find out the features of your device, and then, following it:
- Check the model name of your printer to understand how it works. To do this, inspect the device, and there you can find the name of the printer model next to the brand name. If it’s not listed there, look in the button bar. Also, the model name can be found on the barcode located on the back of the device. If this information is not visible, find it using your computer (in the “Device Manager”).
- Check after the location of the buttons on the printer.
- Open the printer cover.
- When the containers automatically exit (all models have this function, but also, if necessary, it can be pulled out using special buttons), remove the desired cartridge from them. To do this, pull on the specially designated place (arcuate ledge) on it. To avoid drying out the print head, you need to wait until the containers with cartridges reach the right place by themselves.
Place the cartridge on a flat surface with the sticker facing up
Peel off the sticker. There you will see three small indentations (there is one in the black ink cartridge, three in the color ink cartridge). You need to make holes in them for paint to get in (expand these indentations). Through the holes that you make, we will inject paint with a syringe. You can make these holes with a drill or a hot needle. But be very careful not to push the drill or needle too deep, as this could damage the cartridge.
Fill the syringe with the ink you want to fill
- It is necessary to inject paint into specially designated places. Remember that the top hole on the color printer belongs to the red ink. The bottom left is blue and the bottom right is yellow. Black cartridge has one hole.
- The needle of the syringe must be lowered into the hole by about two-thirds (in no case deeper, so as not to damage the cartridge).
- When you see paint spilling a little through the holes, it means that the cartridge reservoir is already full.
- To prevent the cartridge from being overfilled, you need to pump out the 0.5 ml paint without removing the syringe.
- When you have filled all the paint tanks you need, carefully remove the syringe and place the sticker back. This should be done immediately after filling with paint to avoid drying out.
How to refill a Canon cartridge
The most important thing to remember about refilling Canon cartridges is that they need to be replaced as soon as the ink runs out. If you do not refill the cartridge right away, it will dry out quickly. At best, it will print much worse, at worst it will not print at all. Therefore, carefully monitor the readings about the ink supply using special programs on the computer.
Place the cartridge you have filled back into the printer
Be sure to check that the ink matches the brand of your printer. If they are incompatible, the cartridge may not print and you will have to completely flush the print head.
Make sure the cartridges are well seated in containers. This is one of the reasons the printer may not print. Therefore, wait for a characteristic click before printing.
