On 6/01/10 Experienced B200. I turned off machine, unplugged power source. Same problem. I contacted Cannon. Same process. LIfted up top. Normally the ink cartridge slides out but this did not happen. Cannon felt the printer head needed to be replaced. My extended warranty was thru Staples so I contacted them. Went thru same process. They are replacing entire printer. Interesting note: Supposedly the printer head is considered a consumerable item so it is not replaced in warranty so Staples said they would replace the entire printer instead. Works either way for me.

High Voltage error? Use different power outlet or clean the print head. WTF!? You guys got to be kidding me. Unfortunately, I have the same problem on my MP540. It worked fine all the time but all out of a sudden and without changing anything on or around it, it showed error b200. I cleaned the fucken thing, switched it on and off, disconnected from power source without any success.
My advice (and that's what I am doing tomorrow!) do it like the guy from youtube and throw it from your house. My printer will be followed by my Acer notebook which died as well.

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

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.
