Perhaps there aren't many people who own this printer, and even fewer who have refilled cartridges. I've never heard of this brand, but a "stupid" answer would be that you can refill them until print quality deteriorates. Does this printer have a print head that is part of the printer, or are the carts like HPs, where the print head is a part of the cartridge? If it's a part of the printer, you can expect many, many refills, until the cartridge itself no longer feeds ink properly to the printhead.

hmm you are right Wolverine@MSU I have asked this question many time before but I haven't got any reply because the printer is new to industry, and there are very few people who own this printer. I want just go through about it. I lost it's user manual. Any way thanks for replying.

If the cartridge is just sponge and ink with no print head you can usually fill them 6 to 8 times before the sponges get clogged up. In the past I got about the same with HP cartridges with heads.

If you find a refilling forum many people get almost indefinite refills by flushing out the cartridges. I usually just refill until the cartridge becomes unreliable and then chuck it. By refilling regularly and not letting the cartridge get low you can go almost indefinitely without the flushing. I try to do that.

You aren’t likely to find anything about refilling in the manual.

I’ve used MIS inks for about 10 years. They usually are the best or close to the best in comparison tests of various aftermarket inks. They are formulated for specific brands and models. Several models within a brand will use the same ink, but over time all of the makers develop new inks. During the time I refilled HPs they changed twice giving three different inks. The same has happened with Canon since I started using them. But MIS will send you the right ink if you order for your brand and model.
