Hi. I refilled the ink cartridge in the original cartridge, the light now stays on and I can't reset it?

I assume by refilled you mean that you used a kit to replenish the ink.

Some cartridges require a tool to reset them. Did you use one?

Did you comply with the handling recommendations that Canon provide?

These are chipped cartridges. Have you refilled them before? Search google for chip resetters.

The chip resetters only work on some models.

I gave up looking after extensive Googling for my MP250 all-in-One.

Even though mine is a budget model, I can't wait for it to go wrong so I can get rid of it.

I just disabled the ink sensors on my Canon that tell you cartridge has run out. Press the printers Stop/Reset button for at least 5/five seconds.

DAVEDAF - You should have started a new thread. Short answer is no. Printers require specific cartridges.
