Canon MP190 Error E16 Override

When the black printing started to fade, I refilled the black cartridge and it printed fine again for awhile. Now (less than a week later) the E16 error (out of ink) is stopping it. Evidently it is calculating that it is out of ink and not sensing it. Nothing wrong with the cartridge or the printer otherwise.

Anyone know how to get the printer working again without buying a new cartridge?

I have heard that you can install a new cartridge and get it going, then switch to the old cartridge and 'fool' it. Haven't tried that because it sounded far-fetched.

Thanks in advance.
