Today we’ll see how you can refill a Canon 703 or HP Q2612A cartridge. For those who will refuel such a cartridge with their own hands for the first time, I advise you to be patient. Usually, a beginner refills such a cartridge from half an hour to an hour and a half. And for an experienced tanker, this process takes 7-10 minutes.
Appearance of the cartridge Canon 703, HP Q2612A:
We begin parsing the cartridge – unscrew the side cover from the side of the drum gear
and remove by pulling to the side, as shown in the photo:
We remove the imaging drum from the cartridge (see photo):
We take out the charge shaft (corotron). This is best done with pliers.
We separate the spring (some of the cartridges do not have it, instead of it another spring is installed inside the cartridge). Also, when assembling, do not forget to install this spring in place: without it, the cartridge will not print.
Next, you need a blunt awl to squeeze out the connecting sleeves and divide the cartridge into two parts.
Bushings are installed on both sides of the cartridge. First, they need to be squeezed out with an awl or knitting needle, and then pulled out from the back side with pliers or pliers. Then the cartridge is divided into two parts: a hopper with waste toner and a development unit module.
Remove the squeegee to remove old toner and dust from the cartridge. Reinsert after cleaning.
The charge roller and drum unit should be cleaned with a soft, solvent-free cloth. They can be installed in their place immediately.
To refill the cartridge, you need to remove the side cover of the developer unit and open the plug. Fill the cartridge with new toner through it. New toner weighs approximately 130 grams.
After refueling, rotate the magnetic shaft in the direction “away from you” as shown in the photo below. The toner should be flat on the magnetic roller. This indicates the serviceability of the metering ruler and a good surface of the magnetic roller.
Now you can start assembling the cartridge. The assembly is done in reverse order.
There are types of Canon 703 or HP q2612a ink cartridges that will not have a refill plug. In these cases, to refill the cartridge, you need to remove the magnetic roller and pour the toner through the opened hole. This complicates the refueling process somewhat.
