The GT51 and GT52 ink in the ink tank in my HP GT 5810 printer have dried out. Can someone guide me how i can flush out the dry ink and refill the tank with new ink?

@Abhijit771 Greetings from the HP Community!

Here's all you need to know about refilling the tank on your printer:

  1. Open the ink tank lid.

  2. Remove the plug from the ink tank you are refilling.


    There might be ink on the underside of the plug. Place the plug upright to avoid ink transfer.

  3. Remove the cap from the ink bottle, pull the seal tab off, replace the cap, and then flip open the lid.

  4. Hold the ink bottle on the tank spout, gently push down, and then let the ink drain into the ink tank. Fill the ink tank to just below the maximum fill line on the tank.

    If the bottle does not start draining, remove and reinsert the bottle onto the tank spout. Do not squeeze the bottle.

    Do not squeeze the bottle, and do not overfill the ink tank.

  5. After the ink tank is filled, pull the ink bottle straight up.

    Close the ink bottle lid, set the bottle upright, and then push the ink tank plug into its slot on the ink tank.

  6. Make sure the ink tank plugs are pressed firmly into place.

  7. Repeat the previous steps to fill any other low or empty ink tanks.


    Store any bottle with remaining ink in a cool, dry place for later use.

  8. Close the ink tank lid.
