Canon mp170 error 5200

I changed the ink cartridges and when I turned on the printer I have the on/off light and alarm light both blinking at me with the display saying "check printer" "5200'... I cannot find my manual. I downloaded an EXE file that was supposedly compressed and now I can't open it... Please help!

    I have a new computer and when it wouldn't print I bought a new ink cartridge. It keeps telling me to check the ink and the alarm button stays on. The colour cartridge is empty but I don't want to use colour. Do I need to replace it to make the printer work? Or is there another solution.

SOURCE: I need a tool to reset my canon pixma iP4600 ink cartridges

I found the only tool I have seen at this url. http://www.patronenhandel.de/shop/index.php/cat/c13943_Canon-Chipresetter.html It is a German company, but I was able to order the resetter from them with no problems. It has worked very well, but was a little expensive. part of the problem was that the US dollar and Euro were not at a favorable exchange rate when I ordered. I didn't get any answers to my emails to them, but when I used there site to order, it took about a week to get the device. It is very simple to use.

Error 5200 is a printhead temperature error, sounds like you need a new printhead. The part number is printed on the side of the printhead. it's a QY6 number

How to fix error code 5200 on canon printer MP258? what is 5200 mean?


Here's the procedure. This code is normally encountered after refilling an ink cartridge and replacing the cartridge. Turn off printer. Hold down Stop/Reset button with one hand and turn printer on with other hand. After green light comes on for the ON button, press the Stop/Reset button two times and you should see the green light blink off and the orange alarm light blink "on" with the first press and then the green light comes back on for the power button and the orange light goes off with the second press (if you did it correctly). Now, you need to hold down the ON button about five seconds, then let go to shut OFF the printer. When you turn it back on, the printer should be back to the factory original condition. Make sure you set all your printer properties the way you want them again from your printer properties dialog boxes because some of the settings may have been stored in the printer's EEPROM, which you just reset to get rid of the offending alarm code.

Dear team2,
Code 5200 indicates 'Ink cartridge temperature rise' error occurs. This error commonly happens when cleaning operation is performed. First, please check if there is enough ink in ink tanks. Cleaning with empty ink tank may cause this problem. If you are sure that you have enough ink in ink tanks means that the print head of the printer is faulty and need replacement.
Hope this will be useful for you. Please rate me as Fixya.
Regards

I got that same message and, in desperation, read the manual. It turns out I had skipped the last step in installing the ink cartridge: "Push up on the cartridge until it clicks into place". When I opened the printer back up and pushed the cartridges up, they did indeed click into place, and the error went away.
