The HP 56 black ink cartridge has a very high page yield due to the amount of ink the sponge inside them can soak up. If you buy this cartridge directly from the manufacturer, you can print up to 520 pages with it.

After refilling it with approximately 17ml of ink, you can still print up to 400 pages. We recommend you refill this cartridge with pigmented ink, which will help the cartridge reach laser print quality. You will still get the same results after refilling it and a page yield close to the original one.

If you wish to learn more about ink types, please read the following post. Finally, we recommend you follow this procedure to the letter to avoid causing any harm to your cartridge.

If this procedure doesn’t work out for you, please contact us by leaving a comment in the section below this post.

Instructions for refilling an HP 56 black ink cartridge:

Before we start, we recommend you have clean the contacts on the cartridge. However, this is necessary, not mandatory, especially because these ink cartridges have such great performance.

If you haven’t used these cartridges for a long time, we suggest you clean them first because there may be some dried ink on the print head, which is never good. If you wish to learn how to do this, then please read the following post.

After you’re done with the cleaning process which, again, is not mandatory, you may proceed to refill the cartridge. Please take into account we recommend you clean your cartridge after every three (3) refills.

Step #1:
First, put the cartridge on a surface you can spill some ink on. We don’t recommend you put it on any white material, since you won’t be able to remove the ink from it. On the contrary, we suggest you use dark or black materials, and that you place the cartridge on a flat surface that you can clean easily in case some ink lands on it.

Step #2:
Then, remove the label that has the number of the ink cartridge drawn on it. We always recommend you take this label off the cartridge; it is the one responsible for letting the necessary amount of air into the cartridge, which contributes to its performance and the print quality. Remove this label slowly to avoid damaging it.

Step #3:
You may now inject the 17ml of ink very slowly into the cartridge. Please do this as slowly as possible to help the ink spread inside the cartridge and soak up the sponge located in it.

Step #4:
Now that you’ve refilled the ink cartridge, all you need to do is print a test sheet with it. We recommend you leave the cartridge in the printer from this moment on.

Unfortunately, something could still go wrong with this procedure, even if you’ve followed the steps in this post strictly. If this is your case, please contact us by leaving a comment in the section below this post, and we will help you out immediately.

As we were saying, we always recommend you print a test sheets after refilling an ink cartridge. If you wish to learn how to do this, then please visit the following post.
