PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE REFILLING CARTRIDGES
Refill the cartridge before it is empty or the inside content is dry. It is not recommended to refill a cartridge that has been emptied for longer than 2 weeks. It is best to check the cartridge periodically and add ink. Cartridges containing a sponge may not absorb ink properly (if the sponge becomes dried out) and will cause the cartridge to leak.
Cartridge Cleaning - Soak printhead in a small amount of warm water (recommend using a shallow saucer or bottle). Remove cartridge after 5 to 10 minutes and wipe printhead clean with a water dampened paper towel. Allow printhead to dry, then install in printer and perform print cleaning cycle (see printer manufacturer's user manual).
Sponge Containing Cartridges - The sponge should be soaked with but not floating in ink. It is better to under fill slightly than to overfill the unit. Any excess ink dripping from the printhead should be cleaned off by wiping or resting the cartridge on the paper towel, however DO NOT allow the cartridge to rest for more than one minute. The cartridge will be drained of ink if the printhead is left too long on the paper towel.To avoid overfilling, stop filling when the ink just begins to surface around fill hole.
Priming - Removal of excess air that may obstruct printing operation. (3 methods: A, B or C)
