you are right in theory, but it cleard the error, and it never happened again.
In my recollection it happend right after a paper jam and then I unplugged it.
you would think Cannon would chime in and answer your question;what caused it?

Oh my gosh! You are a life saver! I tried everything and I thought there was a problem with the hardware, but this fixed it! Thank you so so so much!! Canon, get this person an award or something!!!

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 an MX892 printer and am receiving the error 5200 code. I have tried the various hold the on button with the stop button -
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.
But to no avail. My printer will all of the sudden not work!
Any help would be appreciated.
