My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible!

In most instances, a B200 error will require a repair at a Canon authorized repair centre, however prior to sending your printer for repair please follow the steps below to try and resolve this error-

  1. Turn off the printer
  2. Disconnect the power cable
  3. Open the printer cover
  4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary
  5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary
  6. Close the cover
  7. Reconnect and turn on

If the error message is still showing, then it is necessary to deliver or send the printer to an authorized repair centre.

If the printer is still under warranty, (generally one year from purchase) and supporting documentation is provided, then a free of charge warranty repair will be carried out.

If the warranty has expired, then any repairs can only be carried out at cost and charges will apply.

You can find the details of your nearest repair centre using the interactive repair centre locator.

Also, please contact directly as you may be eligible for an on-site repair.

Hi Thanks for your reply. I have turned off, removed mains lead and turned on again. No change, still has error message B200. just to clarify, this fault just started today. not 3 years, that is about how old it is.
