Customer Question

I have a Canon Pixma MX870 printer. Printer error B200 has occurred and it suggested I unplugged from power and get advice. On the underside of the printer, having removed the paper feed tray, there was a sheet of paper half entered into the machine, which I have removed.
Not sure what to do next, as restarting does not result in normal operation.

Hi Paul. Welcome to justanswer.

Error B200 means the print head voltage or temperature is not normal. The Print head could be defective.... but first, try these solutions below (as in some case this is a false error)

1. Turn OFF Power

2. Open the print head bay (as though you were about to change inks)

3. Turn ON power

4. Wait for print carriage to start moving to the left and let it go past half way

5. Before print carriage reaches left hand side (but after going halfway across) shut the cover.

6. Leave the Printer turned on
Try this 3-4 times
