SOURCE: Print Head install
The Print Head in your printer is physically damaged and so even though it is present and installed it will not be detected by the Printer, you need to purchase and install a new print head for your printer.

Yes vintos after long storage problems with the printer heads may arrise.
Thermal changes from being in storage can cause the printer heads to dry up and fail.
DO NOT USE ALCOHOL or other solvents in an attempt to clear the printer heads.
1. Attempt to change ink cartridges , this may clear the issue.
If that fails , you may be forced to change printer heads at that point.

This is simply a case of the ink tanks not being pressed in hard enough. They do click in, as the manual instructs but, unless they are fully pressed in top and bottom, this problem occurs. It's a shame that the Canon manuals and even the support centre do not mention this simple solution.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I thought I had already reseated the component, but the graphics of this response were very helpful to insure I did not miss a step - K"
Ok i know this is kinda old, but i found a solution.
First to those people to state I found a solution from hp, cannon etc etc and not give out the direct link, or instructions, then whats the point fing posting????
This error happens when you install an oem cartridge onto your system. Or havent used it in a while, so the machine is somehow misfigured.
This solution is for canon mp800, simply switch off printer. HOLD stop/reset and press and HOLD on/off button. release stop/reset. Now press stop.reset twice. then release on/off button, press stop/reset 4 times, wait 20 seconds, press on/off button twice.
switch machine back on and the printer should find the cartridges.
This method maybe the same for your mp*** if not google RESET CANON PRINTER MP*** and you'll find the correct buttons to press.
here's a printer on reseting a bunch of canon printers http://tricks-collections.com/reset-printer-canon-mp140-mp160-mp180-mp210-mp220-mp460-mp470-mp500-mp510-mp530-mp600-mp610-mp800-mp820-mp810-mp830-mp960-mp970/
good luck.. and FU canon for adding you scamming chips into cartridges.

Tips for a great answer:
The print head cleaning function allows you to clear up clogged print head nozzle. Perform print head cleaning if printing is faint or a specific color fails to print, even though there is enough ink.
The procedure for cleaning the print head is as follows:
Open the printer driver setup window
Click Cleaning on the Maintenance tab
When the Print Head Cleaning dialog box opens, select the ink group for which cleaning is to be performed.
Click Initial Check Items to display the items you need to check before performing cleaning.
Make sure that the machine is on and then click Execute.
Print head cleaning starts.
The Nozzle Check dialog box opens after the confirmation message.
Check the results
To check whether the print quality has improved, click Print Check Pattern. To cancel the check process, click Cancel.
If cleaning the head once does not resolve the print head problem, clean it once more
