Error B200: A service error has occurred.

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Disconnect the power cable.
  3. Open the printer cover.
  4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary.
  5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary.
  6. Close the cover.
  7. Reconnect and turn on.
If the above solution has not resolved your error, the device needs to be send to service for repair.
It can be that only the print head has malfunctions, but mostly it is another defect in the printer which causes also a defective print head. Changing the print head can solve the issue for a couple of weeks, but then the error will occur again.

WHAT TO DO WHEN I HAVE AN ERROR CODE B200. i CANNOT PRINT AS THE MESSAGE IS CONTACT YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER. IS THERE A WAY I CAN FIX IT MYSELF////


Hi Kathleen,

to clear the Canon B200 error code:

Steps for 4+ Cartridge Printers
  1. Remove All Cartridges. Do whatever is necessary to remove the individual ink cartridges from your printer. In most cases this will be opening the lid of your printer and waiting for the cartridge cradle to move into the correct position.
  2. Remove the Printhead. This is easily achieved in most printers by simply lifting the orange/gray locking lever on the side of the cartridge cradle and then gently lifting the printhead from the printer.
  3. Reinstall the Printhead. Gently put the printhead back into your Canon Pixma printer and lock it into position firmly.
  4. Reinstall All Cartridges. Place all of the cartridges back into the printer and close any open doors. This makes sure that your printer is actively examining the reinstalled cartridges and printhead.
  5. Unplug the Printer. Physically remove your printers plug from the wall and leave it unplugged for 5+ minutes. This allows the printhead to cool and all residual electricity to leave the printer.
  6. Plug the Printer Back.
  7. Do a Nozzle Check or Cleaning Cycle. The B200 error does not tend to occur until your printer actively tries to use the printhead. As such I recommend performing one of these processes in an attempt to confirm the correct cartridge has been replaced.
Steps for 2 Cartridge Printers
  1. Turn the Printer off. When your printer is in this error state it will not let the cartridge cradle within the printer move. However resetting the printer should clear the error message temporarily allowing us to troubleshoot further.
  2. Turn the Printer Back on Again.
  3. Remove the Problem Cartridge. Whilst the Canon Pixma error messages do not tend to specify which cartridge is causing the problem, you should be able to have a rough idea based upon which cartridge was last replaced.
  4. Install a Replacement Cartridge. As the printhead is part of the cartridge, sadly there is no way to stop the B200 error without replacing the cartridge. I would recommend either installing a new cartridge or a previously used cartridge that you know to be functional.
  5. Do a Nozzle Check or Cleaning Cycle. The B200 error does not tend to occur until your printer actively tries to use the printhead. As such I recommend performing one of these processes in an attempt to confirm the correct cartridge has been replaced.
  6. If Necessary Replace the Other Cartridge. If the error persists with the new cartridge, it may be that the other cartridge has developed a fault and is the cause of the B200 support code. If at this point the error remians I can only recommend replacing the other cartridge.

Canon pixma mg5220 wrong printhead error u052


Were you aware of the Canon printer class action suit?

Canon USA Inc Consumer Class Action and
http://www.federmanlaw.com/Websites/federmanlaw/images/QUESTIONNAIRE.pdf

"...at least 16 different Canon printer models have been identified that display an error message of "U052: Wrong Printhead Error," after limited use. This error indicates that the printer does not recognize the printhead, or that the printhead itself is faulty, but disables all functions of the printer, including scanning and facsimile capabilities, rendering the printer unsuitable for its intended purpose and use."

What is service error B200? The printer doesnt work and it says it has a "service error B200"


According to Canon's documentation, this is simply listed as a printer error (not very descriptive). It is likely a hardware fault on a board; a physical hardware malfunction.
This is Canon's official stance on the error:

Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. If the problem is not resolved, contact your Canon service representative.

After looking a bit more, I discovered that the B200 error is a Voltage High Error on the iP4500 chip. Try calling Canon tech support at 1-800-828-4040. If your printer is still under warranty, they will probably send you a new printhead or a new printer.
