Instructions to refill the HP 74 black ink cartridge:

Before we start, we recommend you clean the contacts on your printer. Even if this is necessary, ,it is not mandatory, since these cartridges have such good performance. However, if you haven’t used them for a while, there could be some dried ink on the print heads, which is never good. To learn how to clean them, please read the next post.

After you’ve finished with this cleaning procedure which, again, is not mandatory and can choose to do  it or not, you may proceed with the refilling procedure. We recommend you clean the print heads after refilling your cartridges three times in a row.

Step #1:
First, put the cartridge somewhere you can easily clean an ink spill from. We don’t recommend you use any white materials, since you won’t be able to remove the ink from them. On the contrary, we suggest you use a black material or cloth, even a flat surface that you can clean ink from.

Step #2:
Now you may proceed to removing the label located on the top of the cartridge. We recommend you always remove the label before refilling it, because it allows the necessary amount of air into the cartridge.

The air helps the prints to reach maximum quality, and the cartridge to reach the performance it was made for. Remove this label carefully to avoid damaging it.

Step #3:
Add 17ml of ink as slowly as possible to the cartridge. We need you to do this slowly to help the ink spread inside the cartridge, and to soak up the sponge in it.

Step #4:
Once you’ve filled the cartridge with ink, all you’ll need to do is print a test sheet with  it. We recommend you leave the cartridge inside the printer from now on.

Even if you’ve followed this entire procedure strictly, something could still go wrong. If this happens to you, please contact us by leaving a comment in the section below this post, and we will help you out immediately.

Like we said before, we always recommend you print a test sheets after refilling an ink cartridge. To learn how to do this, please visit the following post.
