Can Inkjet Refill Kits Shorten the Life of Printer Heads?
models may find themselves having to cope with similar problems. A typical refillable ink kit is usually bought in either black ink or color sometimes kits containing both can be acquired. A kit typically contains a bottle of cleaning solution along with a plastic syringe and a tool that is used to help widen the holes on an empty cartridge. Widening the holes allows the syringe filled with ink a better passageway to shoot the solution into a sponge that holds the ink until use. Over time the sponge will wear down and it won’t be able to hold any ink. When this happens, after the syringe is inserted into the sponge and the ink is injected, the ink will simply drip through the printer holes at the bottom. Ink that leaks through the bottom may also do so because the sponge has been filled to its holding capacity and can hold no more. You can judge whether or not its time to get rid of the cartridge by how many times you have refilled it. The cartridge can be filled between 3 to 10 times.
