HP 61 Colour











HP 61 and 61XL Color Cartridge

Refill Instructions


Note: Stick a needle down into each chamber and wipe with paper to check out the correct filling chambers. Some #61 cartridges have the Yellow and Magenta chambers switched.

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

2. Peel off the top label.

3. Fill the syringe with 7 ml. of color ink.

4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into each chamber until the sponge is full. A little ink might come out of the top when full, so cover up the other two holes while filling one.
Note: there seems to be two versions of the same cartridge where the magenta and yellow chambers are reversed. So check the chambers by sticking a toothpick in them before refilling.

5. When finished leave the top label off and the filling holes exposed (when printing it has to pull in air).

6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.

The cartridge will print just like a new one. Even though the cartridge prints good, the ink level gauge will not read full after a refill.
