Printer Ink Refills- an Affordable Alternative to Expensive Replacement Cartridge

By Richard Donna Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

When the ink in the cartridges runs out, the printer users have to look for sources to find a replacement to the empty units. Obviously there are original cartridges to use, but the price is so high that it often dissatisfies the buyers. Many people look for third party vendors who sell cheap compatible cartridges, remanufactured cartridges, ink refills for empty cartridges and do-it-yourself inkjet refill kits.

The cheapest alternative to replace empty cartridges is to refill with third-party vendor ink. In this case, refilling is done either by the third-party retailer or is done by you with an easy step by step do-it-yourself inkjet refill kit.

Most of the cartridges can be refilled with printer ink of the specific brand to which the printer belongs, provided you know the model number and the serial number of the cartridge. The process can be repeated for several times till the cartridge is worn out. However, the number of times a cartridge can be refilled depends upon certain factors. Printing should not be done once a low ink warning is indicated. The metal plate should not be touched while removing the cartridge, and the cartridge should be placed in a container with a damp cloth (not drenched) fixed to the side of the cartridge. Also, the empty cartridge must be brought to the refilling unit soon.

You can also try out the other alternative- refilling the cartridge at home with a do-it-yourself inkjet refill kit. These kits come with a complete set including a syringe, bottles of ink for now and then, a guide book for instructions. Before starting with the process, an individual must go through the instructions carefully. Improper handling can create a lot of problems, thereby causing damage to the cartridge and the printer. So, while refilling color ink cartridges, proper care should be taken to see that the colors do not mixed up creating a mess.

However, it must be remembered that repeated refilling can cause the cartridge to wear down and ultimately it cannot be used any further. Also, it must be considered that the ink refills are not something that belongs to the original manufacturer; it is developed by the third-party vendor to meet the specific requirements of different brand name inks and models of printers. When you are shopping for the particular products online, you must check the source properly for reliability and credibility. Unauthentic inks give substandard prints and even damage the printers.
