Well If you are careful you won't have that problem.. I refill all the time and have saved alot of money!! I pay $15 for a ink kit that lasts me 10 refills so far the heads on my cartridges have not gone bad eventually though you will have to buy new ones because the heads get worn.. I don't mind paying HP sometimes..
Seriously 10X? That's insane! I just went to print my latest draft of a manuscript only to discover I was out of ink ... again! The HP21's were not built to last. It'd be worth it if I could stretch it even by 2x. I only print fast draft so hopefully that'd help too. I'm definitely going to try this. LOL- some of the comments are like "if you're not careful, you'll screw up the cartridge" ... the one they're suggesting you throw away? Well, there's no harm in trying (though I think I'll try doing it outside just in case). But seriously, what's the worst that could happen? $40 for barely 300-ish pages just isn't worth it.
My first attempt refilling was a mess and I got it all over my hands now I can say I am pro cause when I refill I don't get ink everywhere.. Those that say it is a bad idea or you should buy new ink cartridges must work for HP listen HP and all the printer companies are nothing but trying to get your money.. For instance HP programs the cartridges to say your out of ink when you go through a number of pages even though you may have ink still in the cartridge it is a hoax.. I get the message that my ink cartridge is counterfeit and I need to buy new ones I just ignore the messages Now If I ever get an HP that says it won't print without new ones I will leave HP for good and they will never get my business again and I will Blog to my community about there crooked ways.. This goes for cannon and lexmark the good thing about Canon is you can get a device to reset the cartridge and I will be going to canon when this printer fails for good.. When you refill it does not damage nothing excepy your clothes if your not careful when you start to add the ink and it starts to overflow just pull back in the syringe and it will clear up. If you don't have labels to recover the holes then use scotch tape it works fine once your done refilling then you need to dab the print cartridge on a napkin till you see all the colors which on most cartridges would be yellow magenta and cyan Good Luck!!! Ink cartridges cost $35 to $40 everytime they go out and most of the time it has enough ink left to print a dozen of pages without ruining the heads.. If you refill you pay $15 for the ink and syringes after having the syringes you will only need ink cause you would use the syringes over and over.. You can refill 5 to 10 times or more as long as you catch when it is running out of ink as in you see your pages are fading or skipping when printing just refill problem solved or pay $35 to $40 everytime you run out it is your choice.. You own the printer free and clear you should be able to do what you want without a company saying you can't do that and you have to buy there ink! That is absurd
good short video this on how to refill ink in hp cartridges...but hp recommends buying new cartridges instead of refilling as it simply dosent work...having said that i know that new cartridges r relatively expensive..just saying!!!
ever heard of a blowout ink when refilling cartridges? ink in your hands,clothes,shoes, floors,curtains, tables and every where.. and then sometimes you overfill your cartridges which causes leaks inside your printer giving you smudges on your print outs. so no thanks but i will just purchase another ink cartridges for hp than to do refill...
