Ink has run out.
Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing,press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the inkcartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink outcondition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing.The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing iscontinued under the ink out condition.
Thanks for using Fixya

Nope! Canon played a little nasty on re-fillers and made these cartridge virtually un-fillable. Not that they can't be refilled, they can. They just won't be recognized in your machine.
They have done a couple of strange things with the software and the cartridge.
1. Software writes to the cartridge to actually marry it to the machine. This encodes id numbers on the cartridge so that another machine cannot use the cartridge.
2. They have placed a "fuse" of some type in the cartridge which is actually "blown" when the "out of ink" message is displayed. This renders the cartridge un-usuable for another cycle.
I like the Canon product. Just not these particular ones. The ones that take cartridges 30/31/40/41/50/51. I have seen too many of them come into my shop for repairs after barely 2 years of use. They are un-repairable regardless of their issues.
I suggest you look at a different Canon product, one that takes the individual ink tank cartridge PG-5 and CL-8 series. These are much better machines and the printer itself will last longer.
Just be aware that you will have an added cost in the print head which is a consumable that will need to be replaced every 3 years or so!

sounds like the black catridge is a much larger cartridge. I would use the 30 and 31 refills instead. I know with the bigger cartridges You don't need the printer head. Maybe thats the problem. Good luck

Please check if there is not some dirt, or something blocking the contacts from reading. Also the ink level is measured by optical sensor that can also be dirty.
Also make sure you use an Original Canon cartridge.
