Ink Cartridge refilling

  collinsc 13:51 03 May 2009


I have a HP multifunction printer which uses cartridges 21 and 22.

I am looking into how i can save a bit of cash. Can anyone advise on how easy it is to refill your own ink jets and how much you might save?

I have also been told that i dont need 2 ink cartridges but can instead obtain one to fit my purpose? is that correct?

thanks kindly

I'm not familiar with your model of printer, but some printers can produce an approximation of black by mixing the tricolour inks, so you could perhaps manage without the black cartridge. But it would be a very expensive way of using your printer.

It can be a very messy business..

I buy Epson compatible cartridges for my R300 at this outlet (buy several packs to make the most of delivery charge); the printer uses six separate cartridges and the price is just over £5 per pack of six. Genuine Epsons would cost around £60 upwards for the six...:-(

stuartli - your last link does not work.

To make that last link work you just need to add the = to the end of the URL in your browser address bar

All that was needed was to use the first link's HP ink cartridges pointer in the left hand menu...:-)

Here's the TinyURL version:

DiskDepot is the cheapest (apart from 7DayShop) ink cartridges supplier I've ever found; usually same brands as e-Bay, but lower cost.

My Epson cartridges are re-badged under the Sumvision brand (of MP3 player fame).

I am not more familiar with these HP printers but i can tell you to how to refill your cartridges.
For refilling process,just take a refilling kit which comes with syringe and ink.And one important thing is that it comes with whole instruction of refiling process.So it will become easy for you to refill your cartridge.
And if you want to save your money,you can prefer re manufactured ink cartridges.They are same as OEM and available at less price.
