SOURCE: New ink cartridge won't work.
Guys I had this problem with black ink. It appears that the internal print head ports were clogged with ink. Try removing the print head and washing it in alcohol- when I did this i had clumps of congealed ink coming out of the tiny ports. The print head has two small screws underneath that I also removed and cleaned the ports inside by use of a syringe and alcohol. After I put the print head back together, dried it and ran an auto alignment - it all seems good now.

Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!

This error is one of the most annoying issue. I don't mean to disappoint you, but I am only telling you the truth and in most cases, the machine needs serviced. You have only two option to try, but I can't guarantee you, honestly..
While the printer shows the error message, keep tapping the cancel/resume button and see the if this clears the message or not.
The other option is "clean the printhead", remove the print head unit from the printer and dip it in a bowl of hot water. You need not to dip the unit completely, but submerge the nozzles so that clogged ink will be cleared, wave it or use a soft brush to help cleaning the nozzles. After it's cleaned and dried, reinstall the unit and check again.
Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
