Having trouble installing a new cartridge

I've read the instructions and tried it, but I'm beginning to think we have a "trick machine" I'm not the 1st to fight with this thing.
So, even though I've installed a new cartridge, the alarm light keeps flashing and the the display says BLACK INK EMPTY.
No it isn't.

first off when you replace the cartridge you have to press cartridge button and replace the cartridge and then press 1 for new cartridge then let the machine print out a alignement page press the correct button and then press start button if you have done it try the following
unplug the machine hold down the clear/stop button while you plug the machine in when you see your country name in the display press start button that will revert the machine back to factory defaults that should do the trick if not the head could be faulty

Canon MPC400 Error Wrong Cartridge

I'm not familiar with your particular model... but have you made sure the electrical contacts on both the printer and cartridge are clean (assuming there are such)? Sometimes these contacts get dirty or covered with ink. Try using a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol or electrical contact cleaner (Chemtronics Tun-0-Wash or similiar). This may not be your problem, but it is worth a shot.
