This is not a solution, but i must comment strogly to the guest that submited the solution of holding the stop button...because IT WORKS(even though it doesnt reset the counter, it atleast allows you to continue printing)!!! and no, i am not the same user as the above...i am just someone who gave the solution a try and it definatly does work! so to that user...thank you very much!!!

SOURCE: I have a new canon
Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.

A few basic causes.
1. The cartridges you bought were not original equipment ones (OEM)and many "clone" cartridges are known to have problems with the ink level chips
Take them back and get them replaced with a different brand
2. They are original cartridges but may still be faulty (rare but possible)
Take them back and get them replaced
3. Your print head is clogged or faulty
Run your printer through the head cleaning process a few times and see if it clears up.
4 your cartridges are out of alignment
run the cartridge alignment process
If you are filling them yourself then...
Cartridge ink levels are usually monitored by a small chip on the cartridge. If that cartridge is allowed to fall below 25% ink level most chips then become locked and not able to re-set.
For many cartridges you can buy a reset device to reset chips that have not become locked. Or you could buy empty cartridges that don't need resetting and that will always accept a self refill.
