Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It could be more a problem with the coding on the ink cartridge which the printer reads to check cartridge type.
Unless you have alread thrown away the old cartridges for yellow and black, I would suggest you put these back in to first confirm whether the problem is related to the new cartridges.
If you have thrown the old cartridges then buy a new yellow and replace. I have read on the cannon forums that to avoid the problem people keep their old cartridge and just refill with ink.
By the way i found a service manual for your printer. Not sure if this will help but you can atleast confirm if there is a diagnostic that you can run.
