I had the same problem with a Canon Pixma MP800 here is the procedure I went through to fix it. I removed the new cartridge then taking a clean tissue I gently wiped the front of the ink well were the the electronic chip in the cartridge meets the ink head. I replaced the new ink cartridge and the red light came on. I closed the cover the printer returned to normal working mode!

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.

SOURCE: cannot recognize ink cartridge
I had the same problem. I was using original brand cartridges and it was still not working. Here's how I got it to work. I recommend doing each step and then trying to print a test page to see if it is working.
1. I used a Q-tip with Isopropyl Alcohol and cleaned the gold contacts on both the cartridge and the mating contacts in the printer.
2. Then from the Setup Menu, I found a menu called Tools. From there I ran "Align Print Cartridges".
3. From the same menu I also ran "Clean Print Cartridges"
4. I then ran a few test prints by going into the Setup Menu and then choosing "Print Report" and then selecting "Self-Test Report". It prints grid patterns in black & white as well as magenta, yellow and blue. The black grid pattern had some missing lines until I printed this report a few times.
5. I made a few photocopies and now the printouts no longer have large stripes of missing ink as it did in the earlier steps.
Good luck. Hope this helps.
