    I had my cartridges refilled recently and although my printer was
    saying they were both empty...it still printed and has done perfectly
    well for a couple of weeks. I tried to print something today and I am
    getting an error message, E5, telling me that the cartridges are
    unrecognisable and it is now refusing to print which is driving me
    crazy!! I have tried cleaning the sensors? on the cartridges and on the
    printer and reseating the cartidges as well which have not worked.

Nareshham; I am experiencing the same thing. I can't solve your dilemna, but my idea is that Canon has a built in "reject" program that won't let you use after-market ink. It's designed to force users to buy their brand. ( and I also feel it's not the "good ol' American way" to do business!)
