HP Printer Cartridges : How to Refill the HP Tri-Color Ink Cartridge

The plugs in the top of the HP tri-color ink cartridge can be pushed into the center of the cartridge without damaging the cartridge. Use a syringe to inject 12 milliliters of ink into an HP cartridge with help from an employee of an ink-filling station in this free video on HP printer cartridges…

    hi, taylor, it looks so easy, when you do it!
    i just bought an HP Deskjet F 2280, and the colour cartridege does have tricolour written on it, like in your video here. what i wanted to ask you is, when i installed the new cartridges of my new printer, i discarded the foil tape. would it be alright to use regular sellotape, to re seal it.
    thanks for your great videos,

    Hi Thank you for the great video. I have a question. i did what you did I think and I did a cleaning test at the end however I don’t think my computer understands that there is ink now. It printed out the cleaning page with all the colors however the yellow doesn’t show and I know I put yellow in it.

    HP is a total rip off on the cartridges. Refilling the HP cart. sometimes works, most of the time doesn’t. Leaking, smear, bad printing all the time. Never buy a HP printer, you will be much better off to get a Canon or a Epson printer with separate cartridges which cost a lot less in the long run, both time and money. You can buy Canon or Epson black and color cartridges online for about $1.50 each!!!
