come back to us with the exact sequence of the flashing lights as they are the error code to what has happened.Its possible that one of the ink tanks locks has popped open and is fouling the main cover of the machine.
Try this,With wour printer ON, DISCONNECT the power outlet open the printer cover to access the ink cartridge, pull the cartridge manually to the center of the carriage and pull out the ink cartridge, close everything and reconnect the printer, It will telle you that there are ink cartridge missing replace the cartridge, and it shoul clear your 5200 error

Go to the store and buy some rubbing alcohol. Put some on a paper towel and rub the metal contacts on the back of the ink cartridges. If that does not work, also try cleaning the metal contacts on the inside of the printer with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. If both solutions don't work, it is time to buy new ink cartridges or even a new printer.
Just make sure the printer is on when you lifted up the top cover for the ink cartridge holder to move to the right side.
You may also try this, try copying a blank paper, look inside the printer when you see the ink cartridges move in the side, disconnect immediately the power cord at the back of the printer. Now lift up the top cover and replace the ink cartridge.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
AP position error [6A00] the Sheetfeed unit or the main logic board has failed need to purge unit. Give it a good tank cleaning, possibly replace cartridges.
Is it still under warranty? Have you contacted Canon?
