The ink in this cartridge is retained because the cartridge has an internal sponge. However, the sponge only fills the lower half of the cartride. The upper half is an open ink reservoir.

It is important to avoid air bubbles from forming in the lower sponge, so we suggest that you insert the syringe needle through the exit hole and fill the sponge from the bottom up.

This cartridge does not have a printhead -- only an ink reservoir.


Step 1) Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.

Step 2) Turn the exit hole upward.

Step 3) Fill a syringe bottle about 1/3rd full of ink (10 ml).

Step 4) Inject the syringe through the exit hole. Aim it so that it goes through the hole in the baffle seperating the sponge chamber from the rear ink reservoir.(The baffle hole is centered on the bottom of the cartridge.)

Step 5) Slowly fill the rear reservoir with ink. Be sure to chase out any air bubbles.

Step 6) Set on a paper towel for 5 minutes as a drip precaution. Expect a few drips -- the ink must drip for the sponge to be full.

Cover all holes during storage to prevent leaks and evaporation.

To Clean the Printhead

Clean the printhead only if the cartridge doesn't print or prints in streaks.
  1. Follow the directions in the printer manual.

To Clean Your Sink

The ink is water-soluble. Use plenty of soap and warm water. You may also need to use Comet or a similar cleaner if the stains persist.

To Clean Your Hands

On hands, the best substance to use is Ink Be GoneTM, a specially developed hand cleaner available from ACSI Bulk Inks. (To place an order, Click Here.)
