WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions precisely can ruin your printer!
It is vital that you do not let a refilled #02 cartridge run out of ink!
These cartridges contain a microchip which counts the amount of ink used. Under normal conditions, the cartridge is replaced when the ink has been used. A normal cartridge will still have ink remaining when the level reads "ink out". This is important because the printer does not have a backup method of determining when the cartridge is out of ink! When you refill the cartridge, the ink level display will no longer be accurate. You can't trust the display with a refilled cartridge!
If the cartridge truly runs out of ink, air will be pulled into the printhead, possibly causing a "fatal printer error". Therefore, it is important to not let your refilled cartridges run out of ink!
Let us emphasize one more time: You must not let the refilled cartridges run out of ink!
If this warning concerns you, we suggest that you purchase a remanufactured cartridge, which contains a new microchip and will be able to give proper ink level readings.
