Refilling Your Inkjet Cartridge Correctly

A lot of people see inkjet printers as very economical options since their upfront cost is pretty low, however, this is not actually the case. Anyone who has bought an inkjet printer knows how expensive inkjet cartridges can be. This is why they probably do not use their printers as often. However, you still need to refill your ink cartridges at some point.  Given the price of these ink cartridges, it is understandable that a lot of people are afraid of making a mistake and wasting their money, however, there are a few common things you can do, along with reading the ink refill instructions to make sure that you get the job done properly.

  • First of all, do not wait for the ink cartridge to go completely empty, because this will end up drying the sponge, and once the sponge has dried out, you cannot refill your cartridge no matter how hard you try. What you should do instead is refill your cartridge before it is completely empty in order to ensure a smooth transfer of printer ink.
  • You cannot rush the process of refilling your cartridge because you can end up damaging the cartridge, spilling ink or even ruining your printer. So, you need to take your time, slowly injecting the ink through the cartridge sponge.
  • You cannot keep refilling your inkjet cartridge through the same location because this can end up drying out other areas of the sponge, which only ends up affecting your printer in the long-run.
  • Do not start using the print option immediately after refilling your cartridges since ink cartridges need time to settle and haphazardly printing them when that has not been done yet can lead to problems like your cartridge spilling, your printer paper being damaged and so on. This is why you need to give it some time before you can use your printer again.
