Ink Cartridge Refilling: Main problems to AvoidThe most important aspects to remember in order to get the maximum out of your ink cartridge refill are:
- Never let your ink cartridge run dry as it may cause the nozzles of the cartridge to dry. Although we at CTEC have the equipment to clean the nozzles it is not always successful. So we believe that prevention is better than cure.
- Never try to print with a ink cartridge when it is dry. This is called dry firing. Through this process the crystallization of ink in the nozzle can take place.
- When you take the cartridge out of the packaging make sure that you handle it with care. Do not to touch the print head or the flex pads on the copper circuitry at the rear of your cartridge. If the flex pads are damaged there is nothing anyone can do to restore them.
