Although the dealer and the local cartridge refill company recommended this as a refillable printer, after a couple of days with the refilled large black, the printer gives me a UO41 error message and not only won't print... it won't fax; it won't do anything.
How can I override this program?
Thanks so much

Solution mentioned earlier works! Hold down the FEED button and press OK button..works so far and was able to scan some time-sensitive docs! This is hijacking by Canon to buy a stupid color cartridge even if I don't need it.

Welcome to the world of Canon. Simply put, the PG-210 CL-211 cartridges have what I like to call "digital fuses" built in. One fuse for "new" and one for "empty". When you install a new Canon cartridge both "digital fuses" are intact. The "new" fuse tells the printer that it is a new genuine Canon cartridge and resets the page counter internal to the printer. With the page counter reset, the printer "blows" the "digital fuse" and that cartridge enters the used state. When the page counter on the printer believes the cartridge to be completely empty it will "blow" the second "digital fuse" and the printer will from then on refuse to recognize it as a valid cartridge. Some claim to have ways around this, but Canon really has won this battle. My Cartridge World store does not refill these cartridges and does not recommend refilling them. Buying original Canon cartridges is what we recommend.
The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.
otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .
There is a chip on the cartridge that tells the printer when it is out and if it is a refilled cartridge. HP has gotten pretty picky on refilled cartridges. The one thing that sometimes works on some models is to pull the power, hold the power button or ok button down and then plug it back in.I would recommend buying a refilled cartridge from a local store or from an online retailer such as Print Country. They are generally really good about replacing reman items that don't work, just don't expect them to replace an empty one that stops working. They are still high quality and about half the cost as a new one. Also, don't forget to recycle the old ones!
Most canons have a chip on the ink cartridge that tells the printer the ink is empty so unless you reset that chip (which you cannont do), that newly filled cartridge will always read empty. This is how some printer manufacturer's thwart people saving money by refilling their cartridges.
Hi, did you refill yourself or did you buy a refilled cartridge. If you purchased a refilled cartridge and the chip is missing, you will need to take the chip off your old cartridge and install on the refilled cartridge.
