12A1970/17G0050/13400HC Refill Instruction

1. Use an awl to drill a hole on the top of the cartridge (See diagram).

2. Fill the syringe with ink, insert the needle into the hole and push down into the center of the cartridge. Slowly inject up to 20 ml. of ink.

    In the meanwhile, watch the printhead and stop filling once any trace of ink coming out is observed (If happened, draw back 1 ml. ink).

3. Set the cartridge in a little container for 5 minutes as a drip precaution.

    Clean the printhead with a paper towel. Make sure no dripping, then install the cartridge to make a test print.

4. Clean the syringe with water and dry for future use.

* Refill immediately once cartridge empty.
