Warranty should cover that problem for you, but when that happens you need a new fuser assembly and also the power supply PCB, or it will just melt the new fuser again.

SOURCE: Technical Black Imaging Unit Replaced,Error message still shows

These units are automatically reset with a fuse. When you put the imaging unit in it will completes a connection which resets the count then simultaniously blows the fuse. Sometimes the fuse blows before the reset, which is what it sounds like happened here. The machine should print normally but the error will persist until the unit is replaced with a new one. Is the the imaging unit an OEM unit or remanufactured? Whoever you got the unit from should replace it as defective free of charge. If it is OEM you might have to go through Xerox to get it replaced. I don't know if the Big Box stores will.

How do I clear a B200 error. I have turned printer of but error is still there

B200 error on a Canon Printer generally means a permanent failure of the print head caused by overheating (running out of ink and ignoring the message and printing further).
A costly mistake.
In the future, do not print after the first message to change an ink tank. Simply replace it as new heads are very pricey.

But a new head is still cheaper than a new printer, so if the rest of the printer/Scanner still works well (or I should say that it did before the B200 error, as that is a "show stopper!", and the printer will not operate further once this error is detected. Only a new head will restore the printer to working), buy a new head.

Sometimes the head is damaged, but no fault error is generated and the printer simply prints nothing on the paper, (or missing one colour or some Pixels and cleaning does not help), but thinks it is. I am sure that this is just that the fault detection is simply not sophisticated enough to detect some errors.

For example, it can detect a shorted head element, but not an open circuit problem for example!! Just guessing though!!

Canon keeps the actual reason for many errors secret, I personally do not know why.....this is one of those errors.....

By the way, second hand heads on ebay are generally a waste of time unless you can go there and test the head before buying, which is very unlikely.....Only buy Brand new Canon heads, with a guarantee and still sealed in the original bag, check at purchase time....from a reputable dealer.anon printers showing this error with

I have fixed several Canon printers with a new head. MG5xxx for example, but I cannot guarantee the fix for simply any printer, its only my limited experience that has been tested....

Best of luck.

Error 5200 shows when trying to print. Not listed in the user manual.

I found a few answers

error 5200 indicates print head overheating. You might try printing 1/3 of document, pausing for cooling then print second 1/3, pausing for cooling then print final 1/3 as a work around.

Looks like thr repair cost is more than a brand new Multifunction printer/scanner

Kodak 5300 shows "color ink cartridge needs replacing",even with new cartridge,and new printhead..Ink level display shows color cartridge empty,and its brand new..

Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.
Thanks Josh - Kodak Tech Support

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


View the user manual here.

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.
