Symphony - Ink cartridge compatibility and replacing ink cartridges
What ink cartridges can I use with my Symphony smartpen?
The Symphony smartpen uses a standard D1 style ink cartridge from Zebra. Ink cartridges that meet the same size specifications (67 mm x 2.35 mm diameter) and contain carbon-free ink may also be used, though Livescribe does not guarantee the performance of other brand replacement ink cartridges. Please see below two models of ink that we have conducted preliminary testing on and seem to work with the Symphony smartpen are:
- Cross Mini Ball-Point Pen Refill - Black Medium (Part #8518–4)
- Monteverde USA Mini D-1Ballpoint Refill – Black Medium (Item# D132BK
Replacing ink cartridges
CAUTION: When replacing ink cartridges, ensure that your pen is placed in such a way that the LED indicator is facing up
You can remove the ink cartridge from the pen by simply pulling out the ink cartridge from the channel. Pull out the ink cartridge with your fingers. You may use a clip for a stronger grip.
Push the new cartridge into the smartpen until it clicks into place.
Please see YouTube video indicating the steps to take when removing the ink cartridge from the Symphony smartpen:
NOTE: Do not use Echo ink refills as it is too short for the Symphony smartpen.
