Dear customer, thank you for purchasing a superInk product.
The difference between a good and a bad print depends on several factors and one of the most important is certainly the quality of the inks used.
superInk inks are of high quality, produced exclusively by industry leaders and bottled on behalf of superInk.
superInk ink bottles are designed to preserve the product for as long as a possible and are custom made, with an embossed logo (for a total guarantee of the product), a convenient graduated scale and special reinforcements on the sides for maximum resistance even in the event of accidental knocks or falls.
The product is compatible with all major Brother inkjet printers.

For more detailed refill instructions, tips and printing tests, please select the most appropriate reference for your printer model from the Refill Instructions menu.

 

Recommendations

• Always follow the refill instructions with the utmost care. Do not to refill cartridges that have been empty for a long time or completely depleted. Best results are obtained by refilling the cartridges before the ink is completely depleted.
• Prepare the work surface to avoid any unwanted stains.
• Wear a pair of protective gloves.
• Always use the same needle for each color.
• Pay attention to the arrangement of the colors in the cartridge (injecting the wrong color will render the cartridge unusable). If you are unsure of the exact arrangement of colors in the cartridge, use a cotton swab (or a toothpick) to identify each individual color.
• Once refilling is complete, clean the syringes and needles with lukewarm water and always store inks and related accessories safely and away from children and animals. Store away from heat sources and/or direct light.
• To restore the correct ink flow in the cartridge, carry out test prints and, if necessary, conduct one or more cleaning cycles.

 
• WARNING: the syringes and needles contained in the package are NOT medical devices, NEVER use on people or animals!

 

 

 

“Double shell” cartridges

• Almost all of the Brother cartridges consist of an external plastic shell (divided into 2 parts) containing the ink tank



• Place the cartridge as shown (photo 1) and locate the 4 holes containing the retention flaps



• With a small flat-blade screwdriver, press and push outwards (or inwards, depending on the position) to release each flap from the retention hole (photo 2)



• Separate the front part (photo 3) and, if necessary, the rear part of the shell



• Once the ink tank has been extracted from the protective shell, you can drill a small hole of about 2 mm in diameter (photo 4) which will be used to refill the ink.
For the hole, we strongly recommend using the upper or rear part of the cartridge; DO NOT drill the side walls as you could puncture the protection film and cause a leakage



• Inject the ink needed for refilling (picture 5)



• Clean the refill hole with a paper towel and seal it with adhesive tape (picture 6) or with hot glue (alternatively we recommend using the colored silicone plugs of our “Refill Set” to speed up subsequent refills and avoid any errors with the different colors)



• Reposition the ink tank inside the back of the shell and close it with the front part, paying attention to ink leaks





[WARNING] CARTRIDGE / INK LEVEL RESET (only for cartridges with microchip)
Before starting the refilling operations, it is necessary to reprogram the microchip on the cartridge using a special “resetter” to make it reusable.
We recommend carrying out this operation before refilling to make sure the microchip works properly, thus avoiding refilling a cartridge that may be unusable.

LC10 series cartridges (Black and Colors)

• With a cutter, first separate the label as indicated (picture 1) and then continue along the entire perimeter (picture 2) in order to make the shell separation easier



• Remove the ink tank from the protective shell and drill a small hole of about 2 mm in diameter (picture 3), which will be used for refilling the ink.
For the hole, we strongly recommend using the upper or rear part of the cartridge; DO NOT drill the side walls as you could puncture the protection film and cause a leakage



• Inject the ink needed for refilling (picture 4)



• Clean the refill hole with a paper towel and seal it with adhesive tape or with hot glue (alternatively we recommend using the colored silicone plugs of our “Refill Set” to speed up subsequent refills and avoid any errors with the different colors)



• Reposition the ink tank inside the shell, paying attention to ink leaks





[WARNING] CARTRIDGE / INK LEVEL RESET
Once the cartridge has been refilled, the printer may detect it as empty.
In this case it will be necessary to deactivate the ink level control function by pressing the “OK” button (or similar) on the printer.

• Remove the ink tank from the protective body and refill the ink through the indicated hole (picture 4).

• Reposition the ink tank inside the shell and re-install the front part, paying attention to avoid any
ink leaks
