SOURCE: service error 5200 canon mp240
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

1. hold RESUME then press & hold POWER
2. release RESUME, then press it twice, the light should go amber then green again.
3. you're now in service mode (you can release POWER now)
for reset waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

This error code 5200 indicates that one of the cartridges is having problem with it's print head. You need to replace it, but first you need to find which one. For best solution, we need a set of new cartridges so that there'd be no problem testing.
Let's begin like this;
Remove all the old cartridges, Turn off the printer, disconnect the all the cables including power cord and ethernet cable (if any), leave it Off for few minutes and again turn it on after connecting the power cord. Now install all the new cartridges and check if the error message is still there or not (Hope it's gone, but you need to find out the culprit from among the old ones so that you can use those that are functioning properly).
Now remove one for example yellow and install the old yellow and check the message, if it's ok, go on replacing with the corresponding old cartridges after removing the newly installed, and so and find out the cartridge which is the creating this problem. After that, you'll be able to use the other remaining old cartridges.
This might be a problem for you if you don't have a new set of cartridges, but this is the best way, you can also use old working cartridges [those with no more inks].
This will definitely fix. I would also suggest you to clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer properly using soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit.
Thanks for using FixYa.
