place the nut on the end of the screw, and screw it on there untill theres just about one pitch open.
Then use a small stick (drill, screwdriver, etc etc) and get a tip of grease on it.
Then you can pick up a ball on that stick. The grease will function like glue. Now push all the balls in the nut, screw the nut on further a bit and back. You'll be able to fill it like that.
here's also a discussion on this topic: http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/general/how-get-balls-back-ballscrew-nut-214577/
Goodluck, and be patient!
