My canon has an error b200 and it doesn't print or do anything I command.


Well every advice is the same except a little altered (use a warm cotton swab to clean inside machine and on print head channels) but then it says if possible replace print head but honestly this has become a primitive Machine for turning humans into corpses - buy a new one.

My ip3000 status says "collecting printer status". I have checked the cords and turned it off and back on. Still won't print. Thanks.


If lights are flashing on the printer, I need to know how many flashes to know what to do. Unless the printer is on and with a ready light, you won't be able to print or collect status.

Turn on printer and light continues to flash. Not


What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:

• The printer cover is open.
• The printer is out of paper.
• A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print cartridge.

If an error message appears
Read the error message that explains the problem and its solution.

If no error message appears
Check the status of the printer by using the printer tools. To gain access to the tools, open the Printer Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click the Service this device button.

Use the printer tools to perform the following tasks:
• View estimated ink levels.
• Clean the print cartridges.
• Calibrate the printer.
• Print a test page.
• Perform other functions as needed.

This can be a failure of the firmware which means the printer is in hardware failure status but it can sometimes be fixed. Follow these steps EXACTLY as written.

Press and hold the “*” key. Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release in sequence the "1”, “2” and “3” buttons.

Mine reads R0631M

Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.

Ip1800 collecting printer status


The printer is trying to collect data of it's status. Meaning its trying to get info on the ink andso on. Make sure your ink is installed and everything is hooked up correctly. Wait a few minutes before trying to use it. If it still says collecting printer status wait a few minutes.

Status Monitor informs of Ink levels requiring me to press resume button during and after each print job.


What it means is the tank to collect waste ink (from cleaning etc) is full.
Canon suggest you return ther printer for replacement of the absorbant mat, suggest you scour the web for DIY cures.
