Canon ink cartridge problem

I am getting continual cartridge-out-of-ink errors from my Canon
S9000. However, if I reboot the computer, and try to print again, I
get the out of ink error- but with a different color! The original
supposedly empty cartridge shows okay. The cartridges it picks appear
to be quite random. A cartridge that shows half full one time may be
identified as the empty one the next time.

How does Canon determine the amount of ink in a cartridge? Is there an
actual sensor or does the system merely count the number of drops
commanded since the last time a cartridge was replaced?

I also find it very annoying that the Canon software will not let you
close that error window to continue to computing without printing.
The window keeps popping up on top of every window until you replace
the cartridge, like printing that picture is absolutely the only thing
I want to do with my computer! The window will not stay closed- even
turning off the computer does not help.

That sounds entirely wrong. I suggest you uninstall and reinstall the printer.
