For refilling you need the tools below:
- syringes and needles
- 5 ml of each ink (cyan, yellow, magenta)
- cutter knife
- adhesive tape
Do the following to refill the cartridges Brother LC-02, LC-04, LC-600, LC-800, LC-50:
Remove the cover of the Brother cartridge from the upper part of the cartridge. The cover is just engaged. You can release it with a small screw driver.
Now you should see two labels. The small label (B) covers the ink suction. You will inject the ink in this suction. The big label (A) covers an connecting area between sponge chamber and aeration chamber.
You can see two more openings on the rear side of the cartridge. One of them is the ink outlet. You have to close this outlet with a piece of tape before refilling. You can identify this opening, because there is some ink on it. Afterwards, you can put the cartridge straight on the table and stab through the label (B) on the upper part of the cartridge with the needle.
Fill the ink into the small chamber until it is full. Wait a moment, so the ink can be absorbed by the sponge. Repeat this procedure until the sponge is saturated up to 5mm under its top level. Insert as much ink as necessary to fill the small side chamber.
Close the cartridge quickly with a piece of tape afterwards, so the sponge won´t absorb more ink. Fix the tape in a way that it doesn´t come off and has no leaky points. The cartridge is now refilled.
