How to refill the HP 122 black ink cartridge

This post will teach you all you need to know about refilling HP 122 Black ink cartridges in six easy steps you can follow anywhere.

The HP 122 black ink cartridge holds about 2ML of ink and will approximatively print no more than 110 pages, this new cartridge holds less than the previous design which used to have about a 7ML ink cartridge.

In my opinion, this is not the best ink cartridge out there, since it the only cartridge working with my printer I have to cope with it for the moment.

I have already written a post about why I do not like or recommend using this ink cartridge, follow the link if you want to check this post the real secret behind HP 122 ink cartridges.

We will have to buy them again when the ones we have stopped working completely, but we can now continue to refill them.

Procedure to refill HP 122 black ink cartridges:

We highly recommend you find a flat surface and an area where the ink spill is not a problem. Before starting gently clean the ink cartridge so the printer sensor will easily recognize them, and will also clean it after refilling. You can read the post How to clean an ink cartridge to help you with some tips to correctly clean the cartridge.

Step #1:
You will need a 5ML syringe, do not use a syringe larger than this one, some napkins, and a piece of a black fabric depending on what type of ink you use dyed or pigment inks. You can read the following post if you want to know the difference between the two types of ink. the differences between dyed and pigmented inks.

Step #2:
Remove the label on top of the cartridge, the one that indicates its color and number. Some people leave it on while refilling their ink cartridges, and choose to pierce it with the needle, but we recommend you remove it entirely to preserve it.

Step #3:
Fill the syringe with 3ml of ink. Remember all ink cartridges lose a bit of their original page yield, so you must only apply 3ml. While this amount of ink surpasses the factory one, we will obtain a page yield closer to the original one.

Step #4:
Add the ink very slowly to each and every orifice found on the top of the ink cartridge. You should take about 10 seconds to pour each milliliter and place the syringe in the center of the cartridge’s inner sponge.

Step #5:
Put the label back on the ink cartridges as close to the original form as possible, leaving all four (4) airflow orifices intact so the cartridge gets all the air it needs.

Step #6:
Shake the ink cartridge with the head print facing down so the ink drops. Please don’t touch the contacts so the printer doesn’t stop recognizing the ink cartridges.

Once this process is done, you will need to print about three (3) test sheets using this ink cartridge. The first few pages may not look all that well, but just give it time and leave the ink cartridge inside the printer so it soaks up all the ink.

There’s a slight chance this procedure doesn’t work for you, even if you follow each step correctly.
