I'd say maybe the switchs is broken and your machine reminds me of a lexmark fault. Look for the cover switch, under lid on base, at rear, small hole, find the switch that get's activated when openning and closing the top, maybe it is missing, or broken.
link to lexmark fault, that I think you will find your answer.

Are you looking at the canon error window picture that show up on your monitor: It is the front inner flap you see after you open up the two top "covers". I forgot I opened this one looking for a paper jam. The printer cartridges would not even move to the front with this flap opened. After I closed the inner flap it all works (after opening and closing the top two "covers" many times!

Try a hard reset first: Unplug the printer from power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and replug. Should the issue recur, then the cover sensor is probably faulty. That is the reason you are getting this error repeatedly. The only solution is to send the printer in for servicing and get the sensor repaired/replaced.
In any case, here are the steps to close the inner cover:
1. Press the Open Button (1) to open the Paper Output Tray (2).
2. Raise the Scanning Unit until it stops.
3. Close the Inner Cover
4. Now close the Scanning Unit.
You can also try reinstalling the printer software along with any patches, updates, etc from the Canon website. Make sure you uninstall the existing software first though..
If neither works, then its time to take the printer in for servicing. You could try to contact them by phone first:

I had the same issue, turning off didn't solve it.
There's a plastic flap the width of the print tray just inside that I flipped up and it solved this problem. It is directly in front of the ink tanks. I'm assuming we flipped it down and forgot about it. It seems it needs to stay up, although you wouldn't notice it when it flips down when you close the top, as it closes just fine with it down. It's easy to overlook. This took me a few hours to realize.
The top of the flap has a half circle cut out of it in the middle.
