Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown.  (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.

I have the same problem with my PIXMA IP 3300. The ink cartridges have 4 electrical contacts on the front. I think the ink level gauge is controlled with these contacts. This is probably just another ploy from Canon to stop you from refillng these cartridges. If anyone knows a way around this , please let me know

usually with the pixma range, if you lift the lid to expose the cartridges, the printer will automatically bring the print head along to the opening to allow you to exchange the cartridges, once it does, simply press down on the exposed cart, and remove it from the printer, the new one is then placed in the now vacant slot and gently lift up the edge until it clicks in to place. Close the lid and the printer will do the rest.

SOURCE: Canon MP560 ink level override
I have the same problem, BUT once the printer detects the cartridge is either empty OR replaced by a generic, it does NOT print at all. It freezes up and refuses to do anything (scan to USB, scan to PC, scan to PC application) until you put in a genuine Canon cartridge. My previous iP PIXMA 4000 the MP560 replaced worked fine with generic cartridge refills. Had for 5 years. But the MP560 is smarter. How can you override this problem? Thanks TDK
