SOURCE: What is error code 5040 for pixma MX452 ?

Canon USA's support site directs you to:

*WARNING* Turning off the printer will erase faxes that are in memory.

1) turn off the printer
2) disconnect the power cord from the plug
3) [wait a half a minute]
4) plug printer back in
5) Turn printer back on

Try this procedure twice. If it doesn't work for you, you'll have to contact Canon USA for service.

*Other basic troubleshooting you can try: Make sure the printer has paper. Make sure there's no paper jam. Always turn the printer on and off with the switch on the printer, not on the power strip.

Good luck! I hope this works for you.

Error code B200 PIXMA MX452

Error B200 is a print head overheat error. Just need a new printhead. You should see the power and alarm lights flash on and off 10 times then repeat the cycle. That's confirms the fault more than the error code. Its very simple to fit a head, just be careful putting the new one in as it's easy to break the pins in the carriage. No force is needed when fitting the head. Just let it drop in and lock the lever. Try taking out the old head first and gently clean the contacts at the back as they can rarely make poor contact with the carriage pins.
Good luck
