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.

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

This worked to reset my MX330.  Thanks to this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoiBaXVhS7g

 

  1. turn off printer
  2. press and hold STOP (reset) button and then at same time,
  3. press and hold POWER button
  4. release STOP button (but keep holding Power button)
  5. press STOP bottom 2 times
  6. release power button
  7. machine should go through start-up routine.  Once it stabilizes,
  8. press STOP button 4 times
  9. press POWER button 2 times.
  10. wait until printer stabilizes.
  11. turn on POWER button

Should be all set!

This video will help you, even though it is in russian.

 

All Canon wants is for you to buy a new printer. This works!

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

THANK YOU cx2browns. Your method fixed mine too, on the first attempt. I guess this reset procedure is too "cerebral" to put in the owner's guide ?????

I threw out my previous Canon printer for the same message, if I remember correctly. I couldn't find an answer from anyone, and I think it was the dreaded Error 5200 also.

Re: Canon Pixma MX340 printer. How to clear Error 5200 / 5100?

[ Edited ]

Thanks, cx2browns

 

I had used this fix earlier as well and your msg helped to remember it. It re-started the printer without error, but now:

 

1. The cartridges are horribly misaligned and will not get properly aligned, even after several attempts. Have changed to brand new cartridges, but still the printed pattern is not OK, and text / tables are misaligned when printed.

 

2. During alignment, I get Error 5100 and printing of alignment pattern stops.

 

3. Also, an old problem has re-surfaced: the printer randomly prints a fax transmission report when the printer is on and idle.

 

Can anyone help please?

 

UPDATED INFO

 

Good news, guys. Managed to resolve the 5100 error Smiley Happy . Saw from another forum that this was related to homing of the cartridges. Just needed cleaning of the transparant guide tape long which the cartridge moves - it had ink on it . The ink probably got onto it when I was trying to clean the sponge earlier. 

 

Now, the cartridges could be aligned and all is fine. None of the error messages have reappeared so far.

 

Once again, thanks Cx2browns - your initial solution did work for Error 5200. And now I have learnt to fix 5100 as well. Hope this helps somebody.
