I've had an Epson stylus TX550W for a while now, but it's now getting low on ink. I have some ink from a refill kit left over from the last printer HP inkjet. Would I be able to use the refill kit from that?

thanks

My thought is I would not try it.

Epson printers are pretty picky with their ink cartridges.
You might run the risk of ruining your printer.
In the beginning there was the command line.

But it would just be ink added to it.

One would think so, and that was my thought was too.
Its only ink, right?

I have an Epson printer. They are very picky about ink cartridges.
Once the cartridge is removed it must be replaced.

See this thread below yours about Epson printers and ink.

If you are going to refill them, don't do it yourself at risk of permanently damaging your printer!

I have never used a refill Epson cartridge so I cannot attest to their quality or functionality.
But if you are going to refill them take it to a refill center where they guarantee it.
That way you can take it back if it doesn't work.

Caveat Emptor (buyer beware)!
In the beginning there was the command line.
