Question Refilling Epson T0892/3/4 Cartridges (S20 Printer)

Hi,

Having bought an S20, I am finding that the ink runs out fairly quickly.

(I suspect there may be a problem with ink monitoring as it always shows ink as full, then suddenly will not let me print as the ink has run out.)

I was wondering if there is a way to refill these cartridges yourself as it's not clear where any refill would take place.

Also, on a previous Epson, I had a chip resetter which worked a treat, but the S20 seems to have additional contacts. I suspect a new chip resetter would be required?

Thanks.

I always buy new personally. But my grandfather actually uses a syringe to inject new ink into the chambers

Is there anywhere on the web that shows you whereabouts the ink is injected in these cartridges? I've found a company who sells a chip resetter for these cartridges, so hopefully just need to find this "filling hole"!!

Thanks.

I dont think there is an actual 'filling hole'. More (id have to ask him to be absolutely sure), he just pushed the syringe in at the top

I always buy replaceables as Epson none originals are cheap to buy compared with some brands as they have the print head on the cartridge unlike Epsons

I got my last batch from here in bulk http://www.inkredible.co.uk
