According to your owner manual from Canon, it says...

Ink has run out.
Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

I think there is a problem with the print head.
Error code E6 has this meaning:
E6 Not detecting the print head Install the print head or replace it
according to this page.
So, I would take the print head out and put it in again. Maybe the reason is a loose connection.
