The ink in this cartridge is retained because the cartridge has an internal sponge.
Step 1) Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
Step 2) Flip over the cartridge. Locate the sponge(s) on the bottom.
Step 3) Inject the cartridge with about 2 cc of ink (about 1/4 of a syringe.) Be careful -- this sponge doesn't hold much ink!
Inject S-L-O-W-L-Y to fill the entire cartridge. Be sure to remove and re-insert the needle a few times to expose the entire sponge to the ink.
Step 4) Set on a paper towel for an hour as a drip precaution. Expect a few drips. Cover all holes during storage to prevent leaks and evaporation.
