As the printer companies do not support refilled cartridges,B cose these cartridges inbuilt sensors which is ink sensitive,Once empty they do not work. Try using new cartridge from canon it should work

It is a shop repair since you have to use Canon diagnostics to reset the count and clear the error. The new part is around $10.00 only.

It may be the cartridge...try removing it and then reseating it. If that doesn't do it, clean the contacts with water or isopropyl alcohol.(power off when you do this)
Check if it work fine if not try this step:
1, Power off the printer
2, Unplug the printer's power cord, wait 5 seconds then replug the power cord in.
3, Hold the Power button for 6 Beeps
4, Release the Power Button
This will reset the printer and should resolve incorrect cartridge detection problems
