Having problems with my ink cartridges, now I've used compatible cartridges as advised.


You may have gotten a cartridge that was in the store for a long time. Some cartridges may get solidified ink in the nozzles. Try a new cartridge from another dealer.

Shows code b200


Hi Joseph,

Regarding your Pixma MX882 printer inquiry (Canon 225/226 ink cartridges) and B200 error message, most likely the built-in PRINTHEAD is reaching it's end-of-life and may need to be replaced with a new one. Typically, the average printhead only produces ~4000 to 5000 pages before it electrically fails.
For information on PRINTHEAD failures, please refer to our support page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

However, let's run thru the full checklist to screen out additional variables:

Canon B200 Error, Troubleshooting:

Replace ink cartridges if they are empty:
At the risk of stating the obvious (frequently not so obvious in the heat of the moment), find out if the ink cartridges are empty. When in doubt, try a new Canon original ink cartridge to see if this corrects the error.


A data cable of print head is open:
Did you just replace an ink cartridge? Perhaps you shifted a data cable to the print head.


Replace PRINTHEAD if it is damaged. Refer to Canon.com for replacement part.


Turn off the printer for some time

In other troubleshooting tips we have advised any inkjet printer not seeing regular usage to run a test print page. If you are making heavy usage of a Canon inkjet printer, consider giving it a break. This will avoid saturating the printhead with heat, prolonging useful service life.


Update the printer driver:

If you have followed all this with no success, from the printer menu (not computer) push the buttons to get a demo or test page. If everything is ok when you do this, however you get the service error code B200 when you try to produce something productive, odds are good, the print driver the computer is using has gone south (corrupt). When printing on a network, a corrupt printer driver can spread like an unwanted virus. Depending on the network, a driver that has gone rogue may be seen as an updated driver, which network will 'helpfully spread' as an update.

---
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures. We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

I have put new ink cartridges in my printer but it it not printing the first couple of lines on the page clearly. The rest of the document is fine. Please advise


Print quality issues could be due to dirty or clogged nozzles. Please follow the steps below to clean the print cartridge nozzles:

Clean Cartridge Nozzles (Solution Center):


1. Go to Start, Programs(Windows XP: All Programs), Lexmark 3300 Series, Lexmark Solution Center.

2. Click the Maintenance tab.

3. Click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.

4. Click Print. A cleaning page prints, forcing ink through the clogged nozzles to clean them.

5. Print a document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

6. If you are still not satisfied with the print quality, follow the instructions in this article How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually.

My black ink wont work.


refill of cartridge several times is not that advisable. time comes that ur cartridge will be damaged. possibility of damaged:
1. the circuit itself in the cartridge might be broken
2. overload of ink.

recommendation:
1. replace a new one or secure other cartridge w/ same spec of ur current cartridge.

Ink leak?


It's not the cartridges, the waste ink is coming up thru the bottom to the exit rollers. The only fix is to have a shop open it up, clean up the ink mess and install a shield that stops the ink from coming back up when it should go to the absorbers. The new machines all have this shield and the ink tube cut back to make the ink go where it should.

I put a new ink cartrige and printer prints low coulour tone.


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below: 
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks."  Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page. 
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps. 
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below: 
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.  3. Get a damp paper towel.  4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.  5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.  6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.  7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.  8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."  9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Does it happen when you try to print from an application - like Microsoft Word or even Notepad? How about printing a test page from the properties page of the printer?
Sounds like either the printheads are clogged or there is no ink at all. Try running a few cleaning cycles. If you're sure you have ink, then try cleaning or replacing the printheads.

This is an indicator the the waste ink collecter is full to over flowing. You can clean it our your self but a very messy job and some folk simply get the next printer However if you are willing to have a go You will either have to speak to Canon technical Support team or take a look in at www.fixyourownprinter.com
