1. General tips for refilling printer cartridges: (top)

In this chapter we will give you first of all general advice at hand to you Problems with Refilling your printer cartridges to save. You should definitely read through (and take heed) - regardless of the manufacturer of your inkjet printer.

  • Do not wait until the cartridge is completely empty before refilling: As soon as the ink level indicator leaves you no choice but to change the cartridge, Is it late. Refilling such an empty ink cartridge with ink usually leads to air pockets in the printhead - and thus too unattractive stripes on your printouts. Certainly not a desired effect. It is best to do the refill while it is still at least a thirdthe old printer ink is in the cartridge.
  • Set the cartridge to be filled even before the start of the first work step with the nozzle plate on a piece of absorbent paper (e.g. kitchen roll) or close the ink outlet opening if it is not required for the refilling process. In this way you prevent that when the ink is injected, the base - or even your favorite shirt - is “beautified” over the long term. This also has the positive effect after filling that some ink is sucked out of the nozzles, which means that a continued good ink flow is guaranteed is. Because (almost) nothing is more annoying than a dried out printer cartridge.
  • Release the cartridge after filling still at least 5 minutes on the mat stand. This will suck up any ink that may come out of the nozzles and will not contaminate the interior of your printer.
  • Do not choose the cheap universal ink for refill ink: Even if this significantly reduces printing costs - optimal printing results don't expect any here. This guarantees only high quality ink, which costs at least around 10 euros per 250 milliliters.
  • Note the ink level: And do not fill the cartridge past this point. Otherwise, not only can ink leak (hopefully onto a piece of kitchen roll), but also subsequently your printer will not work properly become.
  • Use your own syringe and cannula for each color (including black).
  • To your hands from contamination due to (difficult to remove) printer ink to protect, the use of rubber gloves is recommended.
  • Refilled cartridges are used by most printer models not accepted, say as “empty” or “not original” displayed. Around to solve this problem you can either Reset the cartridge / chip, replace the original chip with an alternative chip or simply ignore the message (the easiest way). In case you are for the third option you must decide subsequently keep an eye on the ink level manually. You can do this e.g. B. by Weigh the ink cartridge empty (before refilling).

As already mentioned you can refill almost all Epson cartridges with ink yourself - and in most cases this is quite easy. For most cartridge models it is simply sufficient here to drill a hole in the top, to fill in the ink and to close the hole again. Additionally there is for most of the manufacturer's printer cartridges so-called chip resetters, which reset the count of the cartridge chip to full, so that you can continue printing without any problems.

The catch is that this method especially rather unsafe, unclean and therefore disadvantageous is. In addition, there are now as good as so-called refill cartridges for all important Epson cartridges, which can be refilled easily, cleanly and safely.
