This answer was rated:

my printer iP4600 has suddenly developed a fault "Service Error B200", it printed 3 documents from the scanner but then developed this fault when I attempted to print off a document from the PC. I have tried turning it off and checking that no paper is stuck, etc but can find nothing. The printer carriage has stopped on the rhs of travel and there are no lights on. just the green and ***** *****ghts flashing alternately on the outside

Hi Lesley. Welcome to justasnwer.

Error B200 means the printhead voltage or temperature is not normal. The Printhead could be defective but before that

try this:

  • Unplug the power cable.
  • Open the printer
  • Push the whole print head mechanic to the center
  • While the printer still open, plug the power and turn it ON, now it will start moving towards right first.
  • When the printhead still moving and is going to the very LEFT, close the cover.
  • Wait until its boot up.
