For what its worth, I still have and use a HP Deskjet 500 printer that 
I seem to have had forever. Certainly since the beginning of 90s, and 
have been refilling the one remaining cartridge that still works for 
over ten years from a litre bottle that has about 1/2 an inch of ink 
left in the bottom.  Technique is the key to filling cartridges

Someone mentioned that the Brother cartridges have a chip in them, 
most if not all printer cartridges do nowadays.  Once the printer 
decides that the cartridge is empty, then that is game over for that 
cartridge.  However one of the tricks to keeping the cartridge going 
is to fill it before the printer says its empty.  Weighing the new 
cartridge is one way to do this and comparing it with an empty one.

stores have to collect old ones.
