Thanks @stratman, yours is a very good explanation. So if I have the luxury I let the carts dry the 4 weeks, but in a pinch, if I need a refill earlier, I can shorted the time. Thanks again.Your post is the first I had heard of this technique.
Regardless, if it works for you then don't fix what ain't broken.
Thank you, sir.Sounds like you did a great job with the OEM Yellow cartridge! The flushing of other cartridges sound successful as well. Well done.
In order to shorten time, each time I flushed a cart, I used to put them one minute in the microwave, set at minimum power. It does help a lot to evaporate faster the water. I only do it with 'dumb' carts (BCI-3, BCI-6), in case the microwaves might damage the chip.
Yes, well.Except for the part about flushing and refilling the yellow cartridge your post mirrors how I go about refilling. I took the easy way out and purchased the empty yellow cartridge from Precision Colors when I ordered my refill ink kit to use with my new Pro-100.
