IP2820 Canon printer B200 Error message




I have been trying to solve this error message.  I have unplugged it, plugged it back in, etc.  Everything I have read says change the printer cartridges; however, my cartridges are no longer moving when I power up the printer.  Will manually moving the cartridges suddenly start moving after I manually move them and replace the cartridges with new ones?





The error does indicate a printhead overheating issue or failure...  however, the ink carrier not moving is a different issue.


I would be extremely reluctant on buying new ink for a printer that might not be recoverable.  You can try to move the carrier gently, manually (note gently) .  If it doesn't move out to the center for cartridge replacement when the cover is opened, I wouldn't buy new ink.
