In Kodak ink cartridges, ink is already present due the internal sponge in attendance which holds the ink in the cartridge. For an easy refilling of the cartridge, you can begin the process with spreading a sheet as the base to avoid any mess in the process. Then you need to create a whole on the top of lower flat surface by using a drill. Then make a whole where the letter ‘K’ is written from 1/3 distance away from the edge. Then take ink and fill ½ of the syringe bottle with ink of about 10 to 15 ml. Ones who fill the syringe, insert the needle into the cartridge and infuse it slowly and deeply into sponge so that it gets soaked. If you wish to see best results, you can keep it overnight.
In case of colored Kodak ink cartridge, you can use red, blue and yellow ink. The process remains quite similar. Ones you spread the sheet, you can remove the lid by using a knife. With use of needle or any a toothpick you can check the colors in different chambers. Then take a syringe bottle and fill 1/8th of it with 5 ml of ink in each chamber and insert it into the cartridge and let it get soaked. You can repeat the same process for filling every color and place the cap at the back and tape it. Fir better results, you need to keep it over night.
