    • 1). Reset each cartridge with the Epson cartridge chip resetter by holding the gold leads on the cartridge against the metal tabs on the resetter for three to four seconds. A steady green light on the resetter means the reset was successful.

    • 2). Set the cartridges on a flat surface over some paper towels to soak up any spilled ink.

    • 3). Locate the outlet holes on the bottom of each cartridge. The black cartridge has a single outlet hole and the color cartridge has three outlet holes. Apply a strip of aluminum tape over each outlet hole. Make sure the hole is sealed. Turn the cartridges over so the top label is facing up and the outlet holes are on the bottom.

    • 4). Fill a syringe with 10 milliliters of black refill ink. Fill a syringe with 5 milliliters of yellow ink. Fill one with 5 milliliters of magenta ink. Fill a syringe with 5 milliliters of cyan ink.

    • 5). Position the black cartridge so the "Epson" logo on the label is furthest away from you and the yellow wording is close to you. Insert the needle of the black ink syringe into the top of the black cartridge directly above the yellow words on the label, at an equal distance between the right and left sides of the cartridge. Slowly inject the ink into the ink chamber.

    • 6). Position the color cartridge so the "Epson" logo is furthest away from you and the yellow wording is closest to you. Insert the needle of the cyan ink syringe into the top of the color cartridge in the center of the "S" at the beginning of the white part number on the label. Slowly inject the ink into the ink chamber.

    • 7). Insert the needle of the magenta ink syringe into the "/" in the middle of the white part number on the label. Slowly inject the ink into the ink chamber.

    • 8). Insert the needle of the yellow ink syringe into the center of the "1" at the end of the white part number on the label. Slowly inject the ink into the ink chamber.

    • 9). Seal each filling hole with aluminum tape. Remove the tape from the outlet holes on the bottom of the cartridges.

      Replace the cartridges into the printer. Allow them to rest for eight hours so the sponges inside the cartridges can absorb the refilled ink. Run one to three print head cleaning routines on the printer to get the ink flowing freely through the cartridges.
