    need some new ones..and I'd like to try one of the services I've read
    about. Where you can mail in your old cartridges,they will refill and
    mail back. I used to refill my own with my little Canon 210 ..but too
    scared to try that yet with my new printer.
    Has anyone used a service I mentioned ? I would welcome any and all
    comments ? didn't I read about one that pays the postage ?
    I need these for my HP psc 2210
    HP InkJet 57 (tri color)
    HP InkJet 56 (Black)
    many,many thanks

  2. I've used Atlantic Inkjet for both refill materials and refurbed
    carts. (I use #57 & #56.) I don't think they will 'refill' your
    carts. Why would you bother? Their service is excellent and after two
    years I can attest to the quality of their ink and the refurb carts.
    They ship to both the U.S. & Canada.

    thanks .. went ahead and ordered from atlanticinkjet ..(#56&#57)
    ...thanks..and I'm wondering ..how hard is it to refill these cartridges
    ? I didn't have any problems with the simple Canon 210 .. and I can see
    how one could refill an HP #56, black,but how hard would a tricolor #57
    be ? just curious ..

  4. You'll get good instructions in the Atlantic Inkjet kit. It is just a
    matter of exercising care & control and don't fill too fast! And make
    sure you wear the supplied gloves; that ink is a bitch to get off your

    Go for it!

    I've been refilling HP cartridges for several years now, both B&W and
    color and it's a no-brainer after the first one.

    I simply lay the morning paper (that's the only reason I buy the local
    rag) on my desk and have at it. A roll of paper towels is really
    handy, too. Have some torn off the roll and ready to pick up.

    The only trouble I've had with the HP color carts is waiting too long
    to refill them. It seems that, if the computer tells you they're low,
    refill right away...not next week. Running a cart dry (or near dry, I
    think,) burns out the little resistive elements that boil the ink or
    some such thing. Then it becomes an instant paperweight.

    I find that keeping a log of refill dates and the amount injected into
    each color port helps me track upcoming fills.

    My current carts in a 932C are on their fifth fill. I use that li'l
    printer for proofing portraits and for printing small-size prints that
    I sell.

    I do 30-50 person portrait shoots at some local organizations. The
    prints from that li'l HP have been posted on bulletin boards for up to
    two years with no significant fading or color shifts.

    It's a great way to go!

    Picking up the thread,
    my HP 722C (served me faithfully for 6 years), suddenly stopped printing
    ALL the colors. Replaced the black and 1823c color cartidges-BOTH; still
    same problem
    Went thru alignment, cleaning,priming, etc. to no avail. Any help ??

  8. I must be missing something. I went to Atlantic Inkjet's web site and
    cannot find the HP 5510 printer or the ink (56/57). I've just purchased a
    5510 without ink (probably a big mistake) and need the cartridges. The
    refill kit also sounds like a good idea although I have never refilled ink
    cartridges before.

    Any help finding the cartridges on the Atlantic Inkjet's website will be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for any help,

  9. Please disregard the above. I found the cartridges. They are just not
    available in all categories.

    I apologize for any inconvenience,
