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.

I get Error 0xc18a0106 what is it please help me!


Hi,

Generally, this is Hardware Failure Error on HP Printers. You may try few steps before considering it is Hardware Failure.

  1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product.
  2. Remove the cartridges from the product.
  3. Wait for the 'Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  5. Wait 60 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
  7. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
  8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.
  9. Reconnect the USB cable to the rear of the product, and then try printing again.
If you still get this error,

Remove the Cartridges and Printhead
( Printheads are that hold the cartridge and it has a latch on right side to loose to remove the Printhead, if you dont find a latch, your printer does not has Printhead. Generally, Printers with only 2 cartridges do not have Printheads and any printer beyond this with 4,5 or 6 cartridges have printheads. Sometimes the cartridges are on left side or printer and Printheads inside the printer after you open front access door or you will find cartridges and printhead both inside the printer if you open the front access door )

Clean the contacts ( Electrical or Golden contacts ) using lint free cloth. ( Cloth damped with few drops of water, squeezed properly )
Put the Printhead and Cartridges back and Turn off the printer and turn on.

If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, Service the product as it needs repair.

If your printer is In-Warranty, Contact HP Tech support - 1800-474-6838 and they should be able to replace it without charges.

Regards,
Ron,

Got "wrong cartridge" error while attempting to print. Removed & reset all ink cartridges, still same error. Removed inks & print head, immediately lost power. Unplugged, waited, put everything...


It's a bad printhead, when it is removed, power should come back, but you need a new printhead. Wrong cartridge means the printhead is bad.

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.

Kodak all in one printer instalation error codes


Unfortunately, the only way to possible fix this error is to get the printhead out and reseat it. You can do that by removing the ink cartridges. Right above where the black ink cartridge was, at the top left hand corner of the printhead, if you push up towards the ceiling there should be a button that releases the printhead. You should now be able to tilt the printhead forward and pull it out of the printer. Reseat the printhead by putting it back in the printer and pushing straight back on the back wall of the printhead. It should snap into place. Replace the ink cartridges and close the printer. If the error clears, download the newest firmware from kodak.com so this never happens again.

If these steps do not clear the error however, call Kodak AiO tech support at 1800 421 6699 to get a new printhead.

4. Then close the printer access door WITHOUT the printhead and the cartridges.
5. unplug the printer and wait for 30 seconds and plug it back
6. it will give you a missing printhead error
7. install the printhead first, close it and then it should give an error missing cartridges. install the cartridges and if you no longer have the error upgrade the firmware by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads
I hope that helps. If not contact kodak technical support for further troubleshooting.
