I know how frustrating it is for you, but in your case, the B200 error means your printer's head has died.
In this case, try the following fixes:
1. Try replacing your ink cartridges and make sure gold contacts are clean. Also, make sure the ink cartridge seal tape is removed.
2. Try the maintenance tool from the printer's driver app "Print Head Cleaning".
3. There's a possibility that your printer's heads or printer's roller is severely damaged and needs to be serviced at the nearest printer shop.
