Just got my CISS for my hp c309g.  I'm having priming issues and read this procedure.  I haven't attempted it quite like this yet.  I was doing the same procedure  referenced here;


...however I was putting the air filters on after clearing the air instead of the plug.  I guess my question is--if I'm supposed to quickly put the plug in, at what point do I reattach the air filters?  I thought the air filters were necessary.

You plug the air filters in before you use it..or print.
All priming is doing is taking air out of the lines.

Hope that helped.

If you are having difficulties priming we have created two videos which show how to prime sponge type cartridges. I will include the two youtube links below.

IF you still have the caps that came installed onto the cartridges you would be able to re attach them onto the cartridge and use a syringe and needle to withdraw from the sponge.

If you do not have the caps you are able to use a syringe to push air through the ink tanks to the cartridges.

I believe the first video would be the most efficient way.
