^ The problems I've encountered in refilling my ink cartridges, habang tumatagal pumapangit yung ink print quality and after a number of refills masisira or dry up yung bottom ng cartridge kaya replace na naman.

Ink refilling is messy, and when we do it wrong, mahal ang gastos.well, for HP printer owners, that is. ;)

^I've never experienced that pa naman with our old HP even sa dami na ng refills. Or maybe hindi pa ganun kadami as compared to yours. It's not that messy din.

Sabi sakin before nung nagpaparefill ako, that it's good for a few refills lang talaga. They're disposable and not meant to be refilled kasi. :)

Sa Epson naman, I haven't tried pa, but mas complicated yung pag refill as compared to HP. Like, hindi daw pwede may air bubbles or if so, you have to let it sit overnight pa. ::)

^ hehe i'm a messy "re-filler" . well good for you sis at di naman nasisira cartridges mo. Yung Epson ko sis pagkabili nasira agad, as in pagka take home ng sister ko. that was years ago, 4-5 years, wala pa kong knowledge non sa PC hardware kaya wala ako magawa, di ko matrouble shoot, tapos di rin tinanggap ng binilhan ng sister ko kasi nagpprint daw sa kanila when my sister tried to return it. kaya ayun naalikabukan lang yung Epson sa house.

while back reading nag he-hesitate tuloy ako if ipapa continuous ink ko yung HP ko, kahit sa black lang. mahal kasi ng price ng cartridge P700 for my HP F380  :(

^Hehe. Messy din sakin at first. Pero sobrang ingat nalang talaga, it's hard to clean it up, maski san dumikit! I've tried baby oil, acetone, and such pero LOL.

Anung Epson sis, yung replacement ink? Tsk sayang..

If I remember correctly, ang sabi sakin good ang cartridges up to mga 3 refills. Ok narin yun.

I came across about this font recently, it's called Ecofont. It saves ink daw ;D

^Hehe sis. Hindi pa ko nakakabili ng new cartridges, sira na kasi. Weekends lang kasi ako sa house saka di ko pa magagamit.

Ay sis nangyari na rin sakin yang nasobrahan sa ink, ang nangyari lahat ng colors, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow naghalo tuloy. Hehe!  :D

Ang alam ko sis when you refill a cartridge parang you have to wait overnight or a few hours din bago mo gamitin, parang you have to let it sit or sink. :)

Ink cartridges are only good for about 2-3 refills. After that, it's no longer recommended for use and you should buy a new cartridge.

 ^Will it damage the printer ba if you use it longer than the recommended number? How?


 I'm currently using the refillable cartridges na that was bought on eBay. It was hard to get around at first, malabo kasi yung instruction eh. Pero ok naman na ngayon. :)

yung ink all you can sa sm san lazaro ang daya... kaunting ink lang ang nirefill nila sa cartridge ko. kasi after printing 10 pages, low on ink na agad yung black e kakarefill lang nun. hindi ko na maibalik kasi kailangan ko na magprint at malayo sila sa amin. tatry ko ibalik kapag nagawi kami ulit sa manila.

ang mahal pa ng singil nila. P300 para sa black. e P200 lang yun sa ink for less. hmp  >:(

tiggerlily, you could do your own ink refilling. Just search online how to (depending on your printer), then buy ka lang ng ink specifically for your printer.

We've tried refilling our HP before with Epson, na damage yung cartridge namin after sometime.

Once ko lang na-try magpa refill for my HP deskjet printer.  Black lang yung pina refill ko.  Ok naman at 1st and I was happy kasi nga nakatipid ako pero after a few days ayaw ng i-recognize ng printer ko yung cartridge.  I keep getting all these error messages and di ko na magamit yung printer.  >:( yung power button nya, it keeps blinking.  Ewan ko ba, tuluyan na yata sya nasira. 

I'm planning to buy an all in one printer w/ fax next week.  Di na ko mag-aattempt mag ink refill this time!
Betting on both ends when the odds are close.

I kind of had a bad experience din with ink refillers, just don't quite remember kung ano.

Basta I decided to always go to dun sa loob ng SM Dept. Store na ink refiller. They do a great job.

Help naman sa pag refill ng ink for my HP F4200 model. Sinong may ganitong model and where do you get your ink refills?

^Try having it refilled sa mga refill stations. You'll be able to see pano nila ginagawa. They also sell inks na so that you can do your own ink refilling.
