SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printing Problem
I had same problem today. Removed print head and bathed it in alcohol for half an hour. Then I removed the two screws underneath and used a syringe to squirt alcohol into the ports and clean. I noticed clumps of ink coming out (i guess some ports were blocked). I then dried the head and reinserted and reinstalled ink tanks. All looks good so far- black printing again and printed test patterns all look correct. Good luck.

Try removing the cartridge and cleaning the cartridge contacts in the printer with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol. When the contacts are dry, lightly scrub them with a white pencil eraser (the red ones are too coarse and may cause more problems), then wipe clean with a dry cotton swab.
If that doesn't help, open up the printer and find the other end of the ribbon cable connected to the print head carrier. There is often some sort of locking clamp on that connector. Unlock it, pull out the ribbon cable and clean the contacts on that end, then reassemble. (The lock may be a sliding sleeve around the cable (it only comes out about a millimeter) or a flip-up plate. If there is nothing like that, the cable is a friction fit and pulls out with a small amount of force. Some very cheap printers use a permanently attached connection).
Explanation: It is possible that there is a second drive voltage to the print heads that isn't connecting, but its failure doesn't prevent normal communications to the cartridge using the logic level voltage.

there are two ways you can remove the error message from your printer..
the first is to reset the printer and the second is to replace the waste ink absorber. If the reset thing did not work for your then you'll be spending money to replace the absorber.
How to reset? follow these steps
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.
Hope that solve the waste ink absorber in your printer..

the waste ink absorber cannot be replaced mate. you have to buy new printer.the waste ink absorber is the sponge part where head cleans all its ink. its a common problem in cannon.

Testimonial: "Thanks Ronil. I had a feeling that this might be the case. Don't know if I'll buy another Canon though - this one has gone through 3 print heads."
