Refilling Canon CL-38, CL-41, CL-51 Colour Cartridges

Refilling Canon CL-38, CL-41, CL-51 Colour Cartridges

For these cartridges we recommend injecting the following amount of ink into each of the chambers (cyan/magenta/yellow):

CL-38/2146B001: 4ml (12ml Total)
CL-41/0617B001: 7ml (21ml Total)
CL-51/0618B001: 7ml (21ml Total)

The air holes of these units are very small and you may have trouble getting needle of the syringe to fit. If this is the care I would recommend using the tool provided with many refill kits or a small drill bit to widen it.

We recommend sticking to the lower fill for the CL-38 as these cartridges have a smaller sponge and are physically restricted inside the cartridge. As such over filling them can result in ink spilling inside your printer.

Once this cartridge has been refilled your printer will retain the same ink level estimate it has previously. These cartridges have no way of knowing that they now contain fresh ink and only estimate ink levels based upon how much printing had been done previously. Eventually your printer will believe that the cartridge is completely empty and prevent you from printing until a small prompt has been given. More information on this topic can be found here.

This guide is intended purely to show where to inject the ink into these cartridges and how much we recommend using. For full refill instructions for these cartridges please click here.
