I purchased my first set of Cone inks and refillable carts for the Epson 3800. I followed instructions on the video and pdf on how to fill a new IJM cartridge. It was going well until I got to the last 10ml (out of 70ml) when the ink being injected into the fill hole flowed out. This was not the case of an overfill since I only had 70ml tops. I thought I was injecting it slowly, and it almost seemed like there might have been an air pocket.
Also, the ink seeped between the cartridge seams and into the space between the inner bag and cartridge walls. Thankfully the cartridge is transluscent so that I can see whatʻs going on. Hopefully this will not be a problem.
Iʻd appreciate any advice on how to avoid this the next time. BTW, I had the cartrdige turned with the fill hole on the top. Should I have rocked the cart to make sure the ink settled? Iʻm sure this is just a matter of having the right technique.
