Did you run cartridge cleaning service from your computer after replacing the cartridges? If not, run cleaning once. If the nozzle check is not clear, there another option for deep cleaning, but i think it will take a lot of ink. Do it for best results. This will work. Are you using photo paper for Photo printing? if so give some time to dry the ink on paper.

I have an MP540 and it says..."The PIXMA MP540 runs on five ink cartridges, with a photo black as well as a pigmented black for text printing" so it sounds like pigmented is for text and dye for pics. So maybe your default settings are showing high quality, photo or the paper type is causing the printer to select high quality...just a thought!
Error code 5200 represent print head or cartridge temperature exceed specified value. It may be caused by the following condition: ink empty or usage of refill ink. Please check which cartridge indicated by this error and replace it with new one. For Canon Pixma iP2770, this problem frequently caused by an empty CL811. Please refer to Canon Pixma iP2770 Service Manual for details.
Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS, double click on the printer icon. Go to FILE, to PROPERTIES, then click on the printer SERVICES tab. Click on ALIGN the print cartridge button and follow instructions on the screen. hope this works
Align the print cartridges
Typically, you only align print cartridges after installing or replacing a cartridge. However, you may also need to align cartridges when:
Characters are improperly formed or are misaligned at the left margin.
I have successfully managed to clean the print head with isopropyl alcohol by placing a flexible plastic tube over the cartridge seat, filling the tube partially with the alcohol, then blowing very hard through the tube. The alcohol does not appear to harm anything.
This step is a "reset" step for the Canon CLI8
cartridges. The original Canon CLI8 cartridges have a memory chip on
the back of the cartridge, which sends a signal to the printer when the
cartridge is empty. Your printer won't be able to determine how much
ink is in the compatible cartridges, but you can easily monitor the ink
level by noticing the ink level drop in the cartridge as you print (the
cartridges are see-through), or by noticing low ink output on the
printed pages when you run out of ink. The "reset" procedure below is
the best procedure we know of to date to allow your printer to use
Uni-Kit cartridges which offer a tremendous savings over the Original
With the original chip now
attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to
get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge
now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to
reset the chips.
The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar
to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press
and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold
the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button
(for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
"Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to
print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold
the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed
Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
