Fit the cartridge in the cartridge holder and apply negative pressure using syringe
The problem generally gets resolved using these steps but if it doesn’t repeat the steps above.
Note: If the printer is not detecting ink cartridge or the cartridge has failed then new cartridge needs to be bought.
A cartridge is a consumable and can be refilled on an average 4-5 times, however, there is no hard and fast rule to that. If the cartridge has worn out then new cartridge needs to be purchased
