Canon MP276 show a error number B200. how i solve it?

Try removing ink cartridge and see if the error goes away. If it does, you have a bad cartridge. Sometimes that happens to new cartridges as well. When your printer shows a b200 error, the ink carrier will not move, so you have to gently move it to where you access cartridge to remove it. This is for all canon printers that have a 2 cartridge ink system. For printers with a removable printhead, see solution below:

Canon mg5250 -error code B200

B200 usually means that the printhead has failed. It's a generic "overtemperature detected" error that indicates that the thermal sensors inside the printhead have detected heating to the point where the printhead has probably failed. In a well-intentioned attempt to prevent further damage, the printer has shut itself off; however, by the time this occurs, the printhead is usually destroyed. The following video shows a likely next step:

What is error B200 when attempting to power up

Error B200 on Canon printers is a print head error. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

Canon Printer Pixma MP540 with error code B200 - what can I do? Thank you for your support. Arthur

Try to press down on the sponge to get it to work again. It may be a waste toner issue, which generally is repaired at an authorized service center for canon by contacting 1-800-OK CANON or logging on to

Good luck on this.
