This answer was rated:

I have a Canon Pixma MX895 printer. It is showing an 'error' message (B200), telling me to "unplug the power cord and contact the service center".
As I bought the machine online, what do I do now?
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you. Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished. Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket). Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly. Let me know the results please

I have done what you suggested (above): the machine turned itself of and refuses to to be switched on again!
Thanks It is the internal mainboard that has faulted. This now confirms it I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
