The only way I got my printer to print after refilling the cartridges was to switch over to "copy mode" on the printer itself, then go into the mantenance tab on the PC and click on "Head cleaning", which it then did, after which I clicked on "nozzle check pattern" and from then on it worked.

Re: "Out of ink message" after refilling cartridges
The cartridges can be refilled but the ink level will be zero as they have a chip in them and at the moment. Canon have not yet issued a chip res-setter. You can cancel the message it gives, but you must fill them up as soon as they run out or it will not work again.
You can cancel the warning forever too. Look on Google, for it would be wrong to say on here as Canon do not recommend filling them.

Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.
There in lies the trouble with saving $ on refilled cartridges. Personally, I have never had luck with refilled (personally refilled or commercially refiled) cartridges. I don't know of a way to beat the Dell system, which was designed to be helpful and reduce your frustration due to poor printing. My experience is I ruined several printers before I put one and one together and found the printers failed because of the second rate cartridge's I was using.
Considering that, I use original manufacturers cartridges and I never have a problem. Yes, it costs a little more - but I print when I want to print and I always get good result.
Not the solution you were seeking but this is my experience. Thank you
Hi there Dell Printer 944 error message 1102 Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them? Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message. Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems. This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges. Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges? Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level.The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before running out of ink. Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset.If you are using refill or remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep getting “low ink” messages. To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers: 1.Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc) 2.Go to Settings 3.Advanced 4.More Options 5.In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.
otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .
If the cartridges are leaking, put the print head on some tissue, so it can extract the excess ink. With a dry cloth, clean your scanner. Look inside the printer. If there is ink in there too, clean it. Use a lot of tissue or toilet paper. Might put some gloves on too.
When you make sure that the cartridges are not leaking anymore, gently wipe the electric contacts on them, and clean the ones on the cartridge carrier.
Turn the printer on.
If the cartridge light keeps flashing:
If a computer message indicates a specific cartridge, that is the problem cartridge.
If there is no computer message, look at the Start Copy
lights - if the Black Start Copy
light is blinking, the cartridge on the right is the problem cartridge.
If the Color Start Copy
light is blinking, the cartridge on the left is the problem cartridge.
If you find out which cartridge is the problem, you will need to replace it. Unfortunately, the ink that has leaked inside, might have damaged your printer.
The reason why the printer says supply expired because the ink cartridge has its own warranty. When the warranty of the ink cartridge has expired then you will get that message. Eventhough you refill it. You need to replace the ink cartridge itself.
Lexmark and Dell use a sensor in the cartridge to sense a low ink level. Once the sensor has been activated, you cannot reset it. The printer should work fine except for the fact that you'll have to override the "low ink" message on your computer.
Manufacurers don't make money on printer hardware. All the money is made from ink replacement, so they make it as difficult as possible to use anything other than the stuff you buy from them. Some (HP) put in chips for an "expiration" of the ink/toner. Go beyond the expiration date, the thing won't work.
Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too.
The remaining ink amount
 (Applicable ink tank icon)
The remaining level of the following ink cannot be
An ink tank which has once been empty is
installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with
a new one.
Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink
tank can damage the print head.
If printing is continued without replacing the
refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button
for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a
refilled ink tank.
After the above operation, the function to
detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.
After hours of reading about this I finally found the solution. This will NOT reset your levels but you will be able to print without being told you have empty levels.
Start, Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes.
On the next screen, Right click on your printer then on Printing Preferences. Now select the Advanced tab.
Near the bottom left, you will see more options. Click that and then Appearance. Check NEVER display printing status and make sure under Complete-A-Print, all is unchecked. Click OK at the bottom.
You can print without the stupid messages coming up. Dells printer ink cartridges have a computer chip in them and the refurbished ink does not which causes these error messages telling you your ink cartridges are empty.
