I have workaround for the empty tank issue: - buy or borrow another not empty tank - place it in - start the printer - it recognises the "new" tank - turn off the printer - put back the old, empty, but refilled tank - turn on the printer - print something - it will pop up a dialogue window saying "The ink level of the black/color tank cannot be determined. The ink level determining function will be disabled for the black/color tank. If you want to continue printing without this function press the Start button on the printer." - Press the Start button on the printer and ignore the button 'Cancel Printing' appearing on the dialogue window. - The dialog window disappears.
You can print your refilled tank as many times you want from this time.
you go to 'Printers /Canon /Properties /Maintenance / Printer Status /
Ink Information' it says that the ink level measuring function has been
disabled for: black  / color. You can ignore this this message,
the printer will work perfectly without this stupid function.
Error code 4 normally indicates that there is no unk, and the solution is by installing a genuine cartridge, Try to use Black PG40 remanufactured Canon printer ink
cartridge. This cartridge is a high capacity cartridge which has been
filled with 23ml of ink compared with the 16ml (Black) that you get
with the originals. Compatible with: Canon Pixma MP140. if this error still occur it is better that you try the following procedure below:-
When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP140 printer
you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also
be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree
to do so, and you won’t get the warnings again because the ink levels
won’t be monitored by the printer.
Sadly Canon cripple many of their printers so that they will not accept the high yield cartridges such as the 50 & 51. As a result your printer the MP210 will only accept the 37 or 38 cartridges which are only half filled, or the 40 and 41 which are fairly full, but don't contain as much as the 50 & 51. All I can suggest is that you could try to sell the 50 on eBay, and send a strongly worded email to Canon.
i am getting a constant "E 4" alarm for fine print cartridge in position/ However when i turn it off then on to get the cartridges to auto move over to accessible location they do not. they remain hidden behind the right hand side even tho the printer tries to move it. i found a foot long lenght of plastic strip and a splver piece of metal loose inside. feeeling atop the cartridege they appear to be in tightly. they mechanism to move them across does not work. is it worth shiooing to mfr or can i get some repair ideas from you> thanks
