When the error message comes up, try pressing the "stop/reset" button and holding it down for at least 5 seconds. This works when I get an error message with compatible cartridges (only my error message says the ink is empty - and I know it isn't)
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.
