Canon LBP223dw - how to turn off cartrige error message


Is there a way to turn off the message on start that says "Error connecting to cartridge, it is possible it's a counterfeit..."
By pressing OK it goes away, but can it be disabled entirely?

Canon Genuine Mode is disabled.

It sounds like the printer is operating as expected.  Canon Genuine Mode only checks for the presence of an OEM ink or toner cartridge.  A communication failure is not part of the genuine mode check.  That error means the printer is unable to communicate with the installed cartridge.
