Canon Pixma Pro 100, flashing yellow light, getting B200 support code message
Purchased printer over 3years ago. Only printed a small handful of things. All images came out great. Didn't really have a need for printing anything since then until today.
I plugged in, powered it on, my Windows 10 PC recognized printer...everything looked good up to the point I noticed the yellow light flashing non-stop. So, I decided to open the top tray to examin the ink cartridges. Anticipated ink tray would move to center position...but never does. Infact, the entire printer is silent after I power it on.
Does ink bind up over time in these printers? Will issues arrise for not using a printer for a long time? I did move into a new home. Not sure if rattling/vibrations from a moving vehicle can cause some issues internally.
Is my printer doomed? Anyone have any suggestions? I imagine servicing this thing is too costly and would be cheaper to buy a new one...which I don't really want to do.

Update...I can't believe this worked, but I turned it off and unplugged it and then plugged it back on/powered it on several times...and it magically started working again.
Printing now...now to see if ink somehow held up over the years.
amazing, it works great still.
