Recommendations on this site did not work for me, i.e., power off, hold stop, etc.
Canon manual does not mention 5200, but elsewhere in printer ink forums, I found the answer. If you are using after-market cartridges, the printer apparently believes the black cartridge is empty and tries to make black ink from the other colors, thus exhausting one or more of the colors in the 211 cartridge. Replacing or refilling the 211 caused me to stop getting the Error 5200.
You will get a warning about printing with low ink. Ignore it and print.

You are my new go-to with this dang printer. I installed a new colored ink cartridge and the printer keeps telling me it's out of ink. I did the cleaning and tried the deep cleaning, but neither worked. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

I had the same problem with error 5200, but resolved it by using the advice in one of the posts below, which instructed users to remove the power plugin connection to the printer for at least 10 minutes, then plug back in and retry. That worked for me.
