The Canon iP900 is a inkjet colour printer that can produce 16 pages per minute in colour with a resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi. It utilises the Canon CL-41 cartridge for its ink supply. Thankfully, for those users looking to save money, the Canon CL-41 can be refilled easily with replacement cartridge ink. Properly inject the Canon CL-41 with three ink colours, and quickly return to your printing tasks.

  1. 1

    Remove the empty Canon CL-41 cartridge from the Canon PIXMA iP900 printer, and place it onto a surface so that the label is facing up.

  2. 2

    Orient the cartridge so that the raised curved plastic on the top looks like the letter "U."

  3. 3

    Remove the paper label from the top of the cartridge.

  4. 4

    Widen each of the three refilling holes on the top of the cartridge with a thumb drill.

  5. 5

    Fill each of the three syringes with coloured ink so that one holds 6ml of magenta ink, one holds 6ml of yellow ink and the final syringe holds 6ml of cyan ink.

  6. 6

    Determine the colour refill holes. Looking at the top of the cartridge, the refilling hole to the right of the raised plastic curve holds the yellow ink. The refilling hole to the left of the curve holds the cyan ink, while the final hole holds the magenta ink.

  7. 7

    Fit the ends of the syringes into their proper refilling holes, and slowly release the ink.

  8. 8

    Return the cartridge to the Canon PIXMA iP900, and wait at least six hours for the ink to properly settle. Once it has settled, run one to three cleaning cycles, then resume your regular tasks.
