    Help on refilling Canon BC-03 and BX-3

    I believe a glue gun and a hot wax gun are the same thing they use a stick of hard wax feed to a heated nozzle .they are very cheap to buy I got mine from a stationary store but hardware stores and supermarkets also sell them.

    Help on refilling Canon BC-03 and BX-3

    Sophia I think your problem here is the tape used to seal the hole,normally when the ball bearing is pushed in it is then replaced with another ball bearing for a good seal I think the tape you are using is not sealing properly and allowing a flow out the head. or alternatively, as I...

    Ink waste tank full, really really full

    Rob I thought 50 or so mls of ink vacuumed out was plenty, WRONG it was only when I tipped the printer on an angle that ink ran out and it was obvious I was going to have to pull it apart with my trusty 20 years + old needle nose pliers that is missing one handle pad. :) Unfortunately I did not...

    Ink waste tank full, really really full

    Granddad hope this photo clarifies a few things for you The pad itself is about 2cm thick and is made from some type of wool like material kinda like a quilt. The drain posts from the over spray sponge is a very dense type of sponge, similar to the type inside a Canon cart but much denser...

    the priming cycle on the printer does help but is not as strong as a priming pump to draw ink from the sponge into the nozzles especially if the cart has been run dry they are a clip on attachment that fits over nozzle and ink is drawn out with a syinge they are very inexpensive but well worth...

    Ink waste tank full, really really full

    At a guess 12 months worth of borderless printing, 3 to 4000 A4 prints worth and cleaning or deep cleaning just about every second day mostly because of the pesky light magenta cart not printing. The printer is an A3+ printer so has a bigger waste pad than an A4, so by approximation I would get...

    cartridge filling for the professional

    After studying this web site for a while I thought this guy was a little contradictory but then realized his philosophy on cart refilling is a simple one. We all go to far in our attempts to clean heads, rejuvenate sponges etc to the point were damage is actually done when all thats needed is...

    Ink waste tank full, really really full

    A couple of posts ago I posed the question how many times can you reset the ink tank full message without actually doing anything and on another post attempted to use a vacuum line to empty the tank Rob thought 40 to 50 mls was quite a lot of ink to get get out. But let me tell you Rob it wasn't...
