Hold down the stop/reset button for 10-15 seconds. this should allow you to print.
Refilling the cartridge will not re-set the ink level and the printer thinks it is a empty cartridge. Holding this button will disable the ink level monitor on the printer, so be careful not to run it dry or you can damage the printer.

Copier wont work alarm light is on says paper tray is open.

If you are using any refilled catridges, remove it and try with original one. See if any dust is present or any pieces of paper left or struck inside. Make sure the catridges are not empty. Try it out.
If still it does not happen then call the technician to check the sensor part of the printer.

Alarm says black ink out.. however it has a newly filled cartridge.. it won't scan or get past this warning/alarm?

Is this a new cartridge or the same cartridge refilled?
There appears to be a mechanism that prevents the same cartridge being used immediately after the system has declared it empty.
Some users get around this with a chip-resetting gizmo (available on the net) others find that using a new cartridge for a while and then putting the refilled cartridge in is often sufficient to get around it.

Alarm light is on. does not print

Those cartridges can't be reset yet, once they are empty, the little circuit board says they are used up and you have to replace them.

I just replaced both ink cartridges and the alarm light is now on. The LCD screen reads check ink, U053, BLK COL. I can't get the printer to work or perform any functions.

On the canon MX300, holding the "reset" button down for about 10 seconds will extinguish the alarm light & should normalize all functions. The ink level will still indicate "low" , just ignore it.

MX300 alarm

You might try a hard reset of printer along with uninstalling and reinstalling the software for the printer.
If nada, you might give Canon a call and ask their techies for their feedback on situation.
