How to fix error B200 of ip2770 printer?
Posted on Apr 01, 2011
Evidently the "ink has run out" message won't display anymore on my Canon iP3600. So I let two tanks get too dry. I think that was the cause of the B200 error. At the same time, the green and amber lights flashed alternately, for ten flashes, then a pause, then ten flashes again, alternating colors. The manual does not cover this kind of trouble. It only says to get Canon service.
I found on the web a suggestion by "Jon Engineer," which I tried and it worked: First wear exam gloves so as to not get body oils on the parts. Remove all the ink tanks (I covered the outputs with Scotch tape to keep them from drying out), then remove the print head.
I soaked the print head in rubbing alcohol for about 12 hours, then swished it around real well in the alcohol. I poured off the inky alcohol and replace with fresh. Swished again. Then I gently daubbed the screens with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, repeatedly for awhile. Ink came out of the bottom when I did this. When each tank screen seemed to be flowing out at the bottom, I shook off excess alcohol, then gently blotted off any more alcohol.
I made sure the printer was unplugged and disconnected from the computer via USB so as to eradicate any memory of the error.
Then I replaced the head, then the tanks, and did some color test prints. All colors seemed to be flowing correctly!!!
This saved me buying a new print head or a new printer! Thanks to Jon, and Thanks to God!

Helo, found on web. Good Luck :0)
The error code is standard for many of the late model MPxxx printers. The B200 error is "Printhead Temperature exceeded", What this means that while you were printing some document, either one or more of the printhead ink wells ran out of ink and the printing continued. Printhing without ink in the wells will OVERHEAT THE PRINTHEAD NOZZLES and can potentially burn the out. The printer has a built in temperature sensor to detect the ambient temperature and to monitor the temperature of the head. This data is always collected and monitored and saved in the EEprom data and the Service Test print data.
If the error will not go away once you have unplugged the priner for at least 5 minutes, then there is the possibility that you have already burnt out the head. Remove the printhead and use a 5x magnification glass to look VERY CLOSE at all of the nozzles to see if you can detect any possible burnt out nozzle.
It many come down to need a new printhead.

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.
