How to Refill Inkjet Printer Cartridge HP21

Inkjet Printer Cartridges are very expensive. As an example HP inkjet Cartridge 21 costs around Rs. 1500.
So when your cartridge is empty you have three options:-

1. Buy a new Cartridge. ( 1500 rupees)

2. Get it refilled (200-250 rupees)

3. Refill it yourself (10 – 30 rupees)


Now I will show you how to refill an inkjet Cartridge. I am using HP ink cartridge 21(Black) but this method will work with other
inkjet cartridges like (Epson, Cannon ).
For this you will need:-

1. Ink cartridge

2. Black Ink for inkjet printer

3. 5cc syringe

You can get ink for printer from any stationary shop.

Step 1: Fill syringe with 5cc of Black ink.


Step 2: Open sticker of cartridge as shown below

Step 3: Insert syringe into the cartridge and fill it slowly

Step 4: Put cartridge in printer and take some test prints.

I hope this is helpful for you 🙂
Remember me in your prayers.

    Ink for printers is specific.

    You cannot use dollar ink.

    Go to some other stationary shop you will find it.

    Do they sell Coloured Ink for the Tri-Colour Cartridge aswell? 

    • Yes color ink can also be refilled.
      You will get inks of all three colors, and refill them 1.5 ml of each ink in respective section of that ink.
      Ink cartridge has 3 openings for three types of inks

  • Ahsan, thanks a ton for letting us know about cartridge refilling.

  • There is no specific brand.
    I bought 30ml ink bottle for Rs. 150.
    and 1 litre for Rs. 800.
    That is 2-3 yrs ago.

    Don’t know about current prices.

  • umair

    got Ink-mate brand black 500ml bottle for rs. 350.

    ink mate is suppose to be korean.

    prints great. Can’t feel the difference from original.

    • umair

      500ml = half litre

      I think Ahsan got 30 ml for very high cost unless the brand is better.

  • Asher

    Thank you for these tips, for years I have been going to Trust Plaza (Computer market in Sargodha) to get it refilled. refill price isn’t high but it really is difficult to go every time, especially since the capacity of my printer cartridge HP D1660 is less than 200 papers.

    Again thank you and will remember you in prayers!
    Allah aap ko khush rakhay!
