Click the cartridge into the refill clip.  Push the refill needle through the hole and into the sponge.  Squeeze the ink bottle and inject a small amount of ink into the cartridge.  Carefully remove the needle from the sponge, then push back into the sponge at a different angle.  Inject another small amount of ink into the sponge.  Repeat with the other two colours.
Remember: Do not over-fill!  Each colour compartment holds 2ml-3ml of ink, and 5ml per colour in the XL version cartridge.

Remove the cartridge from the refill clip and wipe the print head with some paper towels.  Now dab the print head on the tissue to test for 3 coloured lines.   The colours may be mixed together to begin with, so keep dabbing the print head until you see three colours.

The picture above shows magenta and cyan, but only a trace of yellow ink. If one or more of the colours are missing, click the CL546C colour cartridge back into the refill clip suction tool and attached the syringe.  Slowly pull back approximately 2cm on the lever. Remove the cartridge from the refill clip and wipe the print head.  Test again for 3 lines of colour by dabbing the nozzles on the tissue.

Clip the Canon CL-546C colour cartridge into the refill clip suction tool.

Re-install the cartridge into the printer.  The printer will display a warning, "ink cartridge is empty".  Press the Stop/Reset button for 5 seconds.  This will disable the ink monitor / ink level indicator on the printer and allow you to continue printing.
