How to refill Canon Printer ink

Added: Friday, July 28th 2017 at 3:22am by canonsupport

Canon is an independent company providing remote technical support for third party products and their effective software, however, the manufacturer or support team also provides such support for free to registered customers. 

All latest model of Canon printer ink cartridges refills exactly the same and the process described below can be used with any cartridge of this type. The instructions are for a color CL641cartridge, but the black cartridges refill the same, except there is only one fill hole in black cartridges and obviously you only use one (black) ink. 

To prevent making a mess, cover your work area with several sheets of newspaper and keep some tissues on hand for mopping up any ink spills 


1.    Remove the ink cartridge from the printer and the peel off the top label. You can replace the label when finished if you like, but there is no need to. It is mainly there to hide the fill holes and to a lesser degree prevent ink leakage in transportation. 


2.    Locate the fill holes - under the label. As the breather holes are very small and there fit a needle through, enlarge them using a drill tool. It's ok to use an electric drill, but don't get too carried away. The cartridge is filled with felt material and it harms our printer working easy to damage it if the drill bit goes in too far. It's only the plastic case you're drilling. 


3.    Work out which color ink goes in each hole - if filling a color cartridge. Canon uses the same color positions in all cartridges including CL-511, CL-513, CL-38, CL-41, and CL-51. If you get this step wrong and inject the wrong link - you may have to replace the cartridge for more information visit: https://canonsupportnumber.org/fix-canon-printer-problems/


4.    Inject the ink - using syringe/needle. Don't rush this step, or you'll make a mess. If you can't able to see the ink levels, your first clue that the cartridge is full. when the ink overflows. Holding a folded tissue up against the needle is the best way to prevent the ink spilling over and making a mess. Another way is to pause injecting and inspect the printhead (on the underside) after injecting 1ml, 2ml etc. When the cartridge is full, the ink will start leaking through the printhead. When that happens, suck some ink back out (with the syringe) until the leak stops. Standard capacity doesn't take much ink at all and leak if too much is injected. Don't fit a leaking cartridge in the printer! If you do...any ink that leaks out can contaminate the other colors...so don't! 



5.    When injecting is completed  (all three colors), turn the cartridge upside and downside and it can lightly tap it against few layers of folded paper or tissue - to remove any excess ink. Keep tapping it, until no more ink comes out. Then just clean the cartridge up with tissue, or damp cloth and fit it in the printer. DON'T SEAL THE FILL HOLES! One important thing, they must be open for the cartridge to work.
