Air in a Canon print head could be a problem. This is why each time you remove a cartridge and install it back the printer will invoke a cleaning cycle when you start up the next print job.
A printhead like the canons use -uses a heat to "expel the ink" and the resultant air in the printhead is not as big an issue for clearing.
Been a while
What a resetter does to reset a chip is by writing into the chip with data that resembles empty. If the data is identical to what was in it by Canon then it does reset it to true empty. But if the data is only close to empty (to avoid a potential copyright issue) then it is only close to be empty.In case you mean "reset the chip to a state of true fullness", I observed indeed with refilled OEM PGI-9 cartridges, that the resetted chip shows empty a few ml before, the originals leave less than 1 ml.
These chips have no prism, so the counting is done from the start.
I can live with this prudent approach, never saw a resetted chip warning too late (OK, only when I had the purge tube guided to a potty 40cm beneath ).
That makes little sense. It is more reasonable to set the chip to FULL. I base my assumption on the CPU instructions for a test for zero as a result of a decrement operation versus a comparison and then test for equality. It's an optimization thing.What a resetter does to reset a chip is by writing into the chip with data that resembles empty.

I think you probably overfilled your cart by 1 ml. It actually is a 1 ml insurance to make sure you don't run with a dry ink cartridge. Much better than 1 ml short.
But running with ink monitoring disabled will cause the printer to deliberately use up excessive amounts of ink on cleaning cycles, and without diligent self-monitoring by the owner the printer will cause a fatal error to occur, this is better known as self-destruct mode...
