Re: Canon MX860 repeats B200 error code -- brought it back to store , they couldn't fix it.

The easiest way to fix this error is to open the printer as if you were going to change ink, wait for the cartridges to move past the half way point around 3/4 across and simply shut the lid. This works every time for me, although it may take a few tries. After you complete this simple technique, a person will then have control of the printer and can do whatever type of maintenance they would like-it gives you your printer back

I tried a few times turning off and on after pushing the ink to the right as mentioned, but what finally worked was opening the hood to watch the ink when turning on again (leaving it open until it was done). THEN I heard the scan/copy reset itself and the ink went through its normal back and forth warm up.

Seemed to be fixed, but then when I closed the hood to copy - the whole machine died. ARGG! Looks like it´s finished.

Thank you batteryheadbill!  

 

I had to try his directions multiple times.  I even wiped off the main print head (that all the print cartridges go into) and installed new print cartridges for the two that were low (they flash red when low).  But then, it worked! Yay!  Thanks again. We were worried we would have to buy a new printer before we could get this one to work and of course, right before taxes are due and we needed it to work.

 

So relieved that something finally worked!

Hey, just shoving the printer cartridge with all my might did my heart good! The old B200 fix that's worked for me for a long time was opening the printer cartridge, letting it go past halfway, then immediately closing all. This time it didn't work, but your solution has, at least in the short term, stopped the damned B200!

regarding the steps to open the printer and remove the printer heads....the printer head tray will not move over.

What should I do next?

thanks,
