Choice seems the best place to buy compatables or ink refill kits. In case I decide to "fill my own carts" is it necessary to remove the cart plug and syringe in the ink as per my Canon. I then put the plug back and seal the plug with cellotape. Is it the same procedure for the hp. Choice then say you might have to balance them - whats this? Thanks David
Balancing. When I used to refill mine I would let them stand overnight to clear any airlocks that might have occurred. I think that is what balancing means. Another tip I got from a Cartridge Refiller friend of mine is: Do not let the cartridge run out completely before refilling. So "little and often" is the way to go.
Thanks for you reply. I have found that there is little in the cost between bottle ink and compatable carts at Choice, except you get two ink refills out of each bottle of ink. So I will probably buy compatables and save the hassle. Thanks again. David
Can someone please tell me where there is info on how to fill with ink these HP carts. I have heard that there is a different procedure for the black and a different one for the colour cart. I have a general refill kit so I just need specific instructions for these carts. For example should the plugs be replaced and sealed with sellotape? Thanks David
Yes,very easy to refill these cartridges,instructions included with most refill kits and no chance of airlocks as they are sponge filled.
I use either Staples or JetTec(from Wilkinsons stores)refill kits and have no problems but there seems to be a maximum amount of times you can do a refill before they stop working,the most refills I have obtained from any one cartridge was 4.
The print quality from these refill kits and also the P C World one that I tried was quite good but some of the mail order ones I tried were diabolical.Then again I don't print photos.
