Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I refilled the black cartridge and the printer seems to resent it! Kept sending "low ink" message, but I could override that (there was a 'print anyweay' option). But now I'm getting message U130: "remaining level of ink cannot be correctly detected." And I can't find out how to override it. Must I forever pay ruinous prices for Canon cartridges?
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.

When you replaced the cartridge, did it ask if the color and black ink was replaced and did you answer yes for the black ink only? Either way, you can reset the ink counter for the black ink cartridge through the printer properties/maintenance or by simulating replacing the cartridge again. There shouldn't be any issue by not using canon cartridges.
