Error code B203 on Pixma MG 5720



I am trying to figure out the error code B203 on my printer which  suddenly stopped working yesterday. This code shows up on the LCD screen and the instruction is to call Canon Repair. 

A few days ago I updated the firmware on the printer through the LCD screen. 

I am not sure if updating the firmware caused the code or if the code came up due to an underlying issue. 

If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know, as I am trying to figure out how to fix the printer. 

Thank you!
