How to Refill Lexmark Printer Cartridges 

Step 1 – Remove the Lexmark Cartridge – You must first remove the Lexmark cartridge from the printer.

Step 2- Use an absorbent underlay – once the cartridge is removed, it should be placed on a paper towel.

Step 3 – Remove Label – In this step, the label should be removed. This label may be located on the top of the cartridge. For removal, a cutter can be used.

Step 4 – Locate the Fill Opening – After the cutter is successfully used and the label is removed, the fill opening and level chip are visible. The chip is responsible for controlling the fill level.

Step 5 – Use the Needle – The needle should be stabbed over the filling opening inside the sponge. The cartridge slowly fills with ink until a small amount of ink begins to flow from the filler.

Step 6- Remove the ink- You need to remove 1-2ml of ink as it is likely that the sponge will not have excess ink and the ink will start leaking out of the cartridge.

Once all of the above steps are done, the cartridge is reloaded and can be put back into the printer. You should be aware that after each filling, leave the cartridge on the absorbent paper for 15 minutes. Care should be taken and the dripping cartridge should not be placed in the printer. In addition, the printhead should be cleaned frequently with distilled water.


It should also be noted that printing should not be done with an empty cartridge. Instead, a small amount of ink will need to be refilled from time to time. This is done to avoid drying and clogging the nozzle. Also, doing the above step keeps the sponge inside the cartridge smooth.

So follow the filling steps given above and call an expert if you are not able to complete the filling properly. If you like the post then please do share it with others also do comment with your important feedback it’s motivated us
