I used kitchen tissues and once the worst of it was up, just sprayed with crc electric cleaner and more tissues. Mine was so bad it didn't work any more. Went to dse to get a new printer and an asian guy worked there said to try it coz it worked for him. And it did work.

I was told by HP that a faulty or worn out printer head could cause the cartridge to spew out ink, but in the circumstances not worth mucking around with. Luckily I also have a newer printer.

That's funny cause the print nozzle is in the cartridge for HP Cartridges.

Yes, but that's one of the traps with refilling cartridges with integrated print heads (like HP) that are only designed to be disposable.

I found that I can refill 3-4 times before quality drops.

depends on the age. they recent (few years now) no longer have the integrated print head. Although a great idea, the consumer only understands the exorbitant price on the shelf as compared to others so HP moved with the consumer.

It was an older type printer (933c) so was probably going to develop a fault sooner or later. It was the first time I had ever experienced a printer leak down though.messy.
