I kept getting service error 5200 when I tried printing something. How do I fix this problem?


Hi there

Service error code 5200 is the print head error. Rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows and then after that remove all the USB cable connection and power cord and plug it again. Then run the print head cleaning maintenance like print nozzle or print alignment.

It should be fine right now. Please let me know if you need more help

Receiving error message 5200...but i have lost my original manual thanks


According to the error code, http://pixma.ulmb.com/?p=226, the error #5200 means "Print head temperature rise error".

Some of the nozzles of your printer are clogged. The print head will overheat because it does not have ink going through the nozzles to cool it. But you continued to print repeatedly, the print head may have been destroyed due to overheating.

What is 'error 5200" P 8 what is the solution


Hi. Error 5200 is related with the printhead overheating. In some cases, disconnecting power cable from the wall outlet and USB from the computer, then put it back in after few minites will do the trick.

If the printer still show the error after disconnecting from power and USB, you may have to bring your printer to a service center. Good luck.

My printer is showing error code 5200.i took it to the store i bought it from and the electrician said that the printing board is damage.can it be fixed.


Hello

Well, i dont exactly know if the electrician has given the correct diagnosis, but then i could be wrong as well. SO here is my opinion.

According to the error code, http://pixma.ulmb.com/?p=226, the error #5200 means "Print head temperature rise error".

Some of the nozzles of your printer are clogged. The print head will overheat because it does not have ink going through the nozzles to cool it. This explains that your printer prints again after cooling. But you continued to print repeatedly, the print head may have been destroyed due to overheating. Printing solid color on Canon printer, while the print head is clogged, is the quickest way to kill a print head. This kind of instruction may work for other printers. But it is certainly NOT for the Canon printers.

When a Canon print head is clogged, only printing nozzle check is allowed. Otherwise, you are putting your print head at risk. Trust me because I killed an i550 print head this way while learning how to unclog print head.

Really hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Service error 5200 canon mp240


Sir,
Error 5200 indicated an error with the print head. Try to cleaning all contacts on the print head as well as on the connecting pad. And also the power needs to be restated, so do it and try it again, just take out the USB, the power from the wall outlet and the USB in the printer itself.
Thanks Good Luck
