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

    Refilling Epson T0892/3/4 Cartridges (S20 Printer) 23rd Dec 08 at 4:08 PM
    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
