(For Black - See Instructions for
You must start with a cartridge you know is working
properly, or one that has not been empty for more than 30
minutes. Drill a hole in the top of the cartridge into the
chamber you want to refill first, using the MIS Yellow
Tool. Angle the Tool towards the Print Head. See photo.
If your kit came with a syringe, fill it with 5 cc of ink. If
you have a bottle, prepare the bottle by placing the o-ring
in the cap and pushing the 2" needle onto the end of the
cap. Screw the cap on the bottle. Insert the needle or
syringe into the hole you just drilled. Make sure you are
putting the correct ink in the chamber. Aim the needle
towards the print head. Push the needle all the way in
towards the print head, then draw back slightly, about
1/8". Keep the print head in contact with some paper
towel during all refilling. It is very important to always
keep the needle as deep as possible when injecting ink.
Inject ink into the cartridge slowly and firmly. Don't over
fill. Only inject about 5 cc or 1/6 of a 1 oz bottle. Clean
the fill hole and cover it with black electrical tape. Then
fill the next color.
Run 3 cleaning cycles, then print an image that uses all colors. We recommend a multi-
colored bar chart made in your word processor or graphics program. Print 4 - 5 sheets
(8x10) of this pattern. If you see skipping or banding run a couple more cleaning cycles,
then print 4 - 5 sheets of the bar chart. Don't run more than 3 cleaning cycles back to back. It
can make things worse.
