We have the same problem.  I think it has something to do with the printhead.  We found reference to this problem and suggested fixes under the model MX850 on this forum.  One person suggested soaking the printhead.  Yikes.  We barely got much use out of our printer before this happened.  Very frustrating. Husband tempated to buy an Epson today.

Here is the solution offered on another message in this forum:

Re: Error Code B200
Same for me. I looked elsewhere and found other solutions. I soaked the print head in warm water until it ran clear. Dried the unit for 15 hours, unplugged everything. Reinserted the printhead, ink cartridges, power cord, USB connection. Started unit and it worked. How long, I have no idea, but it saved me some money

Try turning printer off, disconnect from electric. Press OK button on printer 5 times, reconnect electric, turn on printer. It worked for me.  B200 error code gone. This advice came from Canon support.
