Why would you ever want to refill an individual cartridge? I'm pretty sure it's impossible with most (if not all) cartridges. You would be better off just purchasing replacement cartridges if your ink level is getting low:

Although you might be able to find it somewhere else for cheaper.

If you don't know how to replace the ink cartridge, it probably says in the user manual or on their website:

The answer is "very carefully - and with some protection to the work area… The ink can be a real pain to eradicate - if you spill any…

When you have refilled the cartridges… you would be wise to reset the chip in each.

lists some of the sites that discuss this to varying degrees; and has some links specifically to Canon cartridge chip resets… The references are mostly for hp as the response there was about hp… But one of the links at least does have a link within to Canon info…


are two about your cartridge specifically; filling and then resetting… some of many such youtube videos - worth to watch?

and if you do a google trawl/search using:

refill canon 245 ink cartridges

as the search term/string, you'll get the above (Youtubes) and a lot more other info too; including hits for refill kits various…

and if you do another google trawl using:

reset Canon 245 ink cartridge - you'll get more specifics about that too?

In the above link to an earlier post here - "fingers" recommends CartridgeWorld - the last response there; perhaps check them out if in the USA/Canada? If in the UK - I posted another UK source.

Usually refill kits have instructions to fill most standard cartridges.
