The print heads on this printer are integrated to the cartridges. I would check the inside of the cartridge caddy, and make sure that all of the gold contact pins are exposed, not looking damaged, and that there are no tears on the film it is connected with. If you notice anything shady with that film, you want to do an RMA (Return to Merchant Authorization) so you can get a replacement,
Canon offers a 1 year upgrade warranty with all of its printers, which very few people use or pay attention to. This means that if you did not void this warranty by using remanufactured cartridges or freaked out the chips on genuine ones by refilling past 1200 prints, you will actually get the newest model (currently the Canon MP140)

Try to open and close the main cover a bit, ... ink recognition will start and may solve the probleme ...
... otherwise remove the cartridge and clean the chip contacts e.g. with spirit
Maybe also pressing the stop/reset-button for >10s will also help to continue printing, but in this case the fill level of the cartridge will no longer be shown

Same problem - two solutions I found helped me work out mine. One said contacts needed to be cleaned and it worked to use a Q-tip and alcohol or just click it in position several times until it recognizes the cartridge - this may work. Another said that they got it to work by installing a brand new cartridge - cool, but I have one full of ink it won't recognize. So I pulled the little circuit board off a used cartridge (like you need to do with some refills) and put it on the cartridge that it wouldn't recogrnize - works great. Still haven't figured out how to get it to acknowledge ink levels though. Canon really should be more consumer friendly since these problems seem to be intended to compel the use of proprietary cartridges.
