Yes, that happens when the printhead goes bad. You need a new printhead, QY6-0061-000
around $40.00.

#5 black ink cartridge skips through the middle occasionally


Replacing the print head
The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:

  • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.
  • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.
  • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.
  • A print head error is indicated on the unit.
  • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.
I hope it helps!!!

Error code 5200 means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4546483-canon-pixma-mp830-printer-service-manual

Print head


I encounter exact same problem. What I did was took out the print head and clean the print head with Qtips with alcohol. To locate and remove print head, follow the instruction at Canon's PIXMA MP830 website and choose the tab "Support & Service" type "rseating the Print Head"
You'll be seeing
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804#SupportDetailAct

Basically, printer head is inner carton where ink cartridges sit.
Above link shows pricicely how to remove the ink cartridge.

Above link's instruction says, Caution: do not touch print head nozzles<1>

But, I just went ahead and clean the print head nozzles with rubbing alcohol soaked Qtips.
After completely cleaned and dried, I reinstalled print head, reinstalled ink cartridges,
closed all the cover. It went back working perfectly.
