Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had the same problem. Apparently, Canon released a "bad batch" of
these ink cartridges which causes the error message. It has something
to do with the chip on the front of the cartridges.
Contact Canon and encourage them to remove these chips from future cartridges... and stop the price gouging of their customers.

Canon Technical Support team will be able to help here. This seem a common problem with the printer firmware.
