Question about Canon Pixma MG8120 InkJet Printer
Printer will not print magenta
Print heads on this model run about $80 on ebay. Your best bet is to first replace the magenta cartridge even though it may appear to still have ink in it. After that, go into the maintenance menu and run a full cleaning cycle several times. This may clear your clogged print head.

Think you need to clean the sponge that the ink cartridges sit on in the head tray they are probably blocked with dry ink. You can remove the print head and tray by lifting the lever and gently lifting it out..... go here http://www.inkjethelper.com/
to see how to carefully clean it with compressed air. I had to do this too.

The print head is clogged.Try unclogging manually.Open the cover and first remove the ink cartridges.Then open the holder and remove the print head.Run hot tap water and put the print head with the nozzles up to stream water.Hold that 5 mins then turn the print head around
with the nozzles down.Hold that for every color of 5 mins.Then put the print head in hot water with the nozzles down.Left it water about 15 mins and then you must very nice to dry.When the print head dry put it in printer and start cleaning.If this not help you need to replace the print head.It's part number is QY6-0049.

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.
