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

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.

I have a Canon MX350 and these steps also worked for the 5200 error code on it!

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

Ok my 1 year old pushed all the buttons on my mx330 canon printer which created the 5200 error. I could not get it to work. Finally I followed all the steps outlined by cx2browns but held the on power button for 10 seconds. Bingo it worked. I had to do it 3 times and it finally worked. Thanks again its printing fine and now I don't need to buy another printer.

color ink

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

Re: color ink

jsicorpmanitoba,
 
The error may be related to the cartridge that is being used.  Ensure that you are using a new, genuine Canon brand cartridge to ensure proper functionality.

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

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.
