This is a common problem with the Canon Pixma series, it appears that the flimsy switches on the internals of the machine are made of fragile plastic -- go figure. The solution is popping open the printer by prying at it (as there aren't many screws) with a few butter knifes of flat-head screw-drivers.
After popping the printer open you'll have to find a switch and permantently depress it somehow (even chewing gum would work) you can do this WHILE the printer is connected to your computer and attempting to print, this is what I've found to be essential to sometimes troubleshoot some of these problems.

If you can remove the tray - have a look at it and it should come out without much force by pressing on the sides. If it comes out you may see the sensor inside that maybe is bent up and is not registering that the tray is open. If you see it you can bend it back down. You can also shoot canned air(with the tray in the out position of removed from the machine) and a piece of debris may come out. Use short squirts or the can gets very cold. All the office supply places and computer stores sell the cans of compressed air.
If none of the above helps, you can always communicate directly with Cannon at:
I have found them to be very helpful. Good luck..............................Pete
