It means the background is not used enough. This tends to make the puzzle too easy so this is why it is forbidden. To get the idea, picture yourself a puzzle without any background, just the colors in the clues. This is would be very easy. If you have a puzzle with 1% of the squares using the background color, that's still pretty easy. To avoid this, the system enforce a minimum percentage of squares of the background color. From memory, the threshold is 18% but I might be wrong.
