Now this is for the black PG-40 and CL-41.
After refilling your cartridges for the first time, you need to disable the ink monitor.
The instructions are in your manual. You know the book that no one seems to read.
Start button > Settings > Control Panel > Printers > (right click on printer model) > Printer Preferences > Maintenance Tab > View Printer Status > Option.
In the options menu you must left click on the enable status monitor. The check mark will disappear and the ink monitor is now disabled.
If you get a pop up message saying anything and the printer is flashing orange. Click ok on the computer, if no ok button. Hold the feed button on the printer for a few seconds.

SOURCE: Why two black ink cartridges?
The larger of the two cartridges is used for text only. The smaller is used for color printing. Its purpose is to eliminate the need for a "Processed" black (black being mader by the color inks).\

I doubt very much that you need to reset the printer, or, even if you did, that this would make much difference. It sounds as if there is a menu item which you should be able to bring up on the display which then allows you to release and extract the cartridge. I have scoured the web for information on this one and Canon, naturally, only supply the software, not the manual. If you have a manual can you look up and quote the relevant bit in it which deals with changing the cartridge? If there is nothing there which says that you have to go to a menu item to release it then it sounds like a mechanical problem - as in 'needs a bit of a yank'. I'll keep looking.

To solve the printing problem..
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel. # Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right). # Continue doing this until it looks clean. # Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing. # Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier. 2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
