How do I refill the ink tanks?

  • Make sure you have new ink bottles handy and have read the ink safety precautions before you begin.

    You can continue to use the product even if one or more ink tanks are not filled all the way.

    Caution:
    Wear disposable gloves while refilling the ink tanks to avoid staining your hands. If ink spills, wipe it off immediately with a damp towel to avoid permanent stains. If ink gets on your clothes or belongings, it may not come off.

    1. Open the ink tank cover.

    2. Open the cap for the ink tank you are going to fill.

      Note: Make sure the color of the ink tank label matches the ink color you want to fill.

    3. Hold the ink bottle upright and slowly turn the bottle cap to remove it.

      Caution:
      Do not shake or squeeze the bottle. Do not touch the top of the bottle after removing its cap.

      Warning: If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out and see a doctor right away. Seek medical advice if problems persist. Keep the ink bottles out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.

    4. Check the upper line (a) on the ink tank.

    5. Position the top of the ink bottle along the slot in front of the filling port, then slowly stand the bottle up to insert it. Wait for the ink to fill the tank. Do not squeeze the bottle. Ink flows into the tank and stops automatically when the ink is filled to the upper line.

      Note: Do not force the bottles into position; they are keyed for each color.

      Note: If ink does not flow from the bottle, lift and reinsert the bottle. However, do not remove and reinsert the ink bottle when the ink has reached the upper line; otherwise ink may leak.

    6. When the ink tank is full, remove the ink bottle and securely close the ink tank cap as shown.

      Note: Do not leave the ink bottle inserted; otherwise the bottle may be damaged or ink may leak.

      Note: If any ink remains in the bottle, replace the bottle cap and tighten it. Store the bottle upright for later use.

    7. Repeat the previous steps as necessary for each ink tank you need to fill.
    8. Close the ink tank cover.
