Having a problem after a refill of this printer cartridge.
Have filled before without any problems. This time I can't get the ink to flow. Have tried the hot water treatment and a blow in the filler hole, but no good.
The printer is OK as another cartridge works perfectly.
Any idea's to save 80 bucks for a new one.

Two more things to try.

Hold cartridge firmly and flick downwards, (better do it outside) with nozzle pointing down. Trying to force air pocket and ink through nozzle.

Leave standing upright in fridge overnight.

To fill is simple.
Get a refill kit from Toner Express, telephone 094436800.
The instructions are inside the box, even gloves to wear to save any ink on the hands.
A BC20 kit with 2 refills $31-50 delivered to your door.
Good luck..Regards Ron Guest.

Many thanks for the help, but unfortunately, nothing will make this thing work.
Have tried your suggestions and can get drops of ink to come out, but will not print The cartridge has had about 4 refills so it may be stuffed.

The annoying thing is that I have just refilled it and wasted the ink.
