Canon PIXMA printer - The Dreaded B200 error - How to Solve?

I have now encountered the infamous & dreaded B200 error on my printer (MG7120).  

It seems to be quite the popular and confounding error with Canon printers.


I have tried just about every solution that the people have listed on this forum and spent a couple days, but nothing seems to work.  I fear that I now have a giant Paperweight on my hands.


Any thoughts from anyone - or Canon Support - on what my next steps are?

I did get 1.5 good years out of the printer, but planned obsolecense is not a great thing and seems such a waste to have to chuck it into our environment these days.


There must be something out there in Canon that can address this seemingly VERY common B200 error.

Hi, kjstongca!

A B200 code indicates something beyond what the printer can self-diagnose has malfunctioned, so you'll want to get in touch with our support team for further assistance. Our team is at 1-800-OK-CANON (800-652-2666) weekdays between 10 AM and 10 PM ET (7 AM to 7 PM PT).
