"As soon as I received the kit, I refilled with no problems the color cartridge Lexmark 26 it is working great on a Canon inkjet printer!!

BUT recently after I refilled the black cartridge Lexmark 16 on the same printer, using the instructions provided in the kit, I had the following problem. Since the begining I am getting dried nozzles on the black cartridge. "

Hello,

Refilling the Lexmark 10N0016 can be trickier than most.
The 10N0016 cartridges are filled with Lexmark’s notorious pigmented
ink. The ink formula seems to be similar to the 1970 cartridges, but does not seem to render the cartridge useless as quickly by drying to the “point of no return.” However, it thickens to a shoe-polish consistency. Soaking for about 3 hours minimum is recommended for these cartridges. The issue lies above the print head in the pre-firing chamber, which is the barrel shaped reservoir adjacent to the print head. There is a filter screen that collects the greasy residue and eventually clogs the cartridge.

The best remedy I have found, besides a complete remanufacturing process including replacing the sponge, would be to fill the cartridge when it hits the 50% empty mark. This will keep the cartridge running smoothly with no interruptions. Also filling the cartridge at 50% with dye based ink will actually dilute the greasy ink and less clogging will occur. And at just a few cycles or refills the cartridge will be purged completely of the pigmented ink and the issue will not arise again.
Thank you
Sebrina Jones
