After you install the refilled cartridges and received the "you are out of ink" warning, press and hold the RESET button for about 5 seconds. Than a second time. The E-5 message should cleared.

No, you can't. I have the same printer and tried to save a buck at Costco, where they sell a 41 and two 40's in bulk. However, the 40 wouldn't fit into the slot because the ridges are slightly different. Several online print websites list the 40 as being compatible, but it would fit on my iP6310D.
Take the 40 back and go somewhere that sells both the 41 and the 40.
Anyone who wants to buy 1 opened (but unused) and 1 unopened 40-ink cartridge, please email email@example.com and I can either sell directly to you or put them on ebay. Thanks!

I had exactly the same problem. I called the Canon helpdesk and apparently the PG-50 is not compatible with the MP210. I then bought a new PG-40 which works fine.
Bit annoying as I have wasted £35 or so on the PG-50. This is also a bit misleading from Canon as the PG-50 fits into the MP210 perfectly, and when you are looking at it on the shelf it looks like a long-life version of the PG-40.
But there doesn't seem to be any way around it that I have found. Just bite the bullet, write it off to experience and buy a new PG-40.

There's something wrong with the connectors for the control chip on the cartridge - maybe they are dirty or bent out of shape. Or the chip itself is faulty. Or the cartridge isn't genuine (or was refilled) and the chip isn't recognized.

Can be a problem regarding the cartridge. What is the status of the color cartridge. Take a printout with the color cartridge alone. If no problem found get your PG40 cartridge replaced. One thing to be noted is that the printer always needs the color cartridge installed. Printer can work with color cartridge alone. But will not work without a color cartridge
