SOURCE: Error Code

Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

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:

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 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!

Canon Pixma Mp258 B200 Error

I can not do anything on my printer. When I turn it orn the Error Code B200 is flashing on the printer screen. I need to know how to get rid of this code.

That error code is not listed on the known error codes for that model. Something to try is to turn off the machine, unplug the power cord from the power supply for five minutes. Plug the cord back in and turn on the machine. Give that a try and see if that fixes your problem. Otherwise I would suggest contacting Canon customer support at 1-800-OKCANON. Take care & good luck!

What is error B200 on Canon MX850?

The B200 error is a Voltage High Error. I read that you should try using a different power outlet and see if that works and if that doesn't work try cleaning the print head:

  1. Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:
    • Unplug the printer
    • Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.
  2. Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
  3. Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
  4. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab
  5. Allow to dry and replace the cartridges
  6. Try to print something

If it doesn't fix it then the board inside of the printer is faulty and you will have to replace the printer
