How to efficiently refill the Epson cartridges?

When it comes to printing devices, the traditional way to get the ink supply back i.e. buying new cartridge is most often an expensive prospect. To that end, several users around the globe (around 37 %) or users of this device cut corners to make sure that they will get an optimal ink supply without burdening their pockets too much. While this is indeed an interesting prospect, it is not an easy thing to do. Fortunately, when it comes to Epson printers, a user can do this in two ways. Through a bit of precision ad some patience, a layman can refill their ink cartridges pretty easily.

According to the experts of Epson printer Support Canada, applying any of the following steps to refill the cartridges is sufficient.


Method 1: The one where you refill from the top

  • The very first and obvious step is to reset the print head chip using optimal measures
  • Take out cartridge from the peripheral and seal it’s(cartridges) bottom
  • Using precise tools, drill a hole on the push button
  • Take a needle and attach it to a syringe, loaded the syringe up with ink
  • Put the syringe through the hole that you have drilled, put in all the way in until reaches the cartridge’s bottom
  • Be slow and precise and inject the ink into the component. Stop just when the ink starts to overflow (be precise or it will damage the component) do this with all the colors. Reseal the whole using scotch tape.
  • Reconnect the device to the computer and run the print head cleaning diagnostic for two cycles.
  • Now, the important part, you need to seal off the cartridge vent completely. For that, drill a hole again.
  • Use a glue gun to cover up the previous depressions made by the ink syringe.
  • Reinsert the syringe and remove all the air bubbles through it.
  • Reinstall the Epson printer and run the print head cleaning again for two cycles.

Method 2: The one where you use a negative pressure

  • The very first and obvious step is to reset the print head chip using optimal measures
  • Take out cartridge from the peripheral and seal it’s(cartridges) bottom
  • Using precise tools, drill a hole on the push button
  • Take a needle and attach it to a syringe, loaded the syringe up with ink
  • Insert the needle about halfway into the hole
  • Now, use a glue gun to fill some adhesive in the hole to make to make it airtight.
  • Reinsert the needle; pull back the syringe so that the bubbles flow in it. Release the pressure and let the ink flow into the cartridge
  • Do this for the rest of cartridges.
  • Reconnect the device to the computer and run the print head cleaning diagnostic for two cycles.
