I have replaced my empty cartridges with refurbished cartridges. Black in Canon PG-50 and Color CL-41 however my printer will not recognize the cartridges and will not print anything. On the display screen it flashes an "S" and "E" along with flashing lights for the color and black ink and a constant light for the alarm. Any thoughts of how to get my printer working? it was working prior to replacing the ink.

Re: Refurb. Ink cartridge problems
Make certain that the labels on the cartridges are in the right postion. For instance the PG40 label should be near the two lugs at the top and NOT near the curved lug. It seems that the chip is near the curved lug maybe in the circular indent.

The canon pixma mp 210 uses PG-30, CL-31, PG-40, CL-41
It will not recognized the PG-50 & CL- 51
See if you can return it and exchange it for the PG-40 & CL-41.
If not, the only other way is to transfer the ink into the other ink cartridges.
The cartridge cap can be removed by a sharp tap at the back end of the cover.
You can glue back the cover.
If there is an E 1,6 Error code, Ink has run out after you install your ink cartridges
Press and hold the stop/reset button for about 10 seconds to clear the error code.
