the cartridge I am trying to refill does not appear to fill (ie the ink is not spurting out at the refill hole no matter how much I put in)as the cartridge I am using is not a new one but the orginal lexmark that I have refilled could it be that after so many refills the cartridge needs replacing with a complete new one? and if so how many times approx can they be refilled? have gone through troubleshoot & checked all connections but still cannot get it to print. any help please march

When I used to refill my cartridges (don't anymore too messy) I found it was best not to let the cartridge completely run out or it wouldn't work. Most ink refill companies reckon maximum 10 refills.

You could try leaving it soaking in nail varnish remover fluid (only the bottom part of the cart, about 1cm) for 20 minutes, this sometimes works for me if I've left it too long before refilling.
