Canon Pixma MX340 printer. How to clear Error 5200?

I have a Canon Pixma MX340 multi-function printer. How do I clear Error 5200? The message said to turn the printer off and then on, and if that did not clear the error to consult the user's manual. On/off did not clear the error, and the online user's manual does not have Error 5200.

Please use plain text.

To try and resolve the 5200 error, please unplug the power cord from the back of the unit and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on.  If the error persists, the unit may require servicing to resolve the issue.  Please click on the Contact Us link below to obtain further assistance and servicing options if needed.

Re: Canon Pixma MX340 printer. How to clear Error 5200?

I have had this error several times, I always figure it out, but then when it happens again I forget what I did! So, just happened again tonight after my 4 year old went on a toy copying binge, and this time I bookmarked the fix!

 

1. Turn off the printer .
2. Press the Stop button for 2 second and hold it.
3. Press the On button, hold it and release the Stop button.
4. Press Stop button 5 times then release together, with the On button.
5. LCD display will blank and now reseting.
6. Computer will detect new hardware just ignore it.
7. Turn off the printer then turn it On.

 

I also removed my cartridges and cleaned the heads after powering it back on. Hope this helps you!

How, how, how did you figure this out? It worked!!! After using my daughter's printer with a very short cord that we never use for a month, ii finally came across your post. I almost did not do it, but am so tired of moving my computer so close that it reached the printer cord I tried one more thing-yours. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
