I have an MG2560 which did the same thing twice. The first time, there was still a bit of tape on the electronic connections on the ink cartridge. Once I cleaned this off, it worked fine. The second time, no matter what I did, the error message kept saying no black ink. I took the cartridge back to the shop and got another one. I fitted it and the printer worked perfectly.
Error 5200 unfortunately is a Print head overheat error. Whatever you try to do to fix it will not work unless you replace the print and the main logic board. These two parts HAVE to be replaced as a pair to get the machine to work. However the costs are often more than the machine is worth. To be honest i would scrap it and by another. Its quite an uncommon fault but have seen it before (I am a Canon engineer)
When the error message comes up, try pressing the "stop/reset" button and holding it down for at least 5 seconds. This works when I get an error message with compatible cartridges (only my error message says the ink is empty - and I know it isn't)
I had a similar problem (error Code:2,140,2) in Canon PIXMA MP250 all-in-one, and it was solved when I replaced both ink cartridges which were in low ink (almost without ink).
I know an scanner problem is not supposed to be in relation with ink or printer problems, but that's the way I've fixed it.
