MG7520 Error B203

Called Canon Support and they say it's unrepairable but past 1 year so unreplaceable too.  Tried everything including dismantling the printhead assembly to manually clean.  Barely used the printer, 1 or 2 prints a month.  

 

Anyone have recommendation on non-Canon I can buy to replace for around the same price range?

Re: MG7520 Error B203

Not only did it take me 8-12 hours of effort and no wireless printing ever happened, only direct connection, but 2 months after puchasing, I also got this code. What a waste of money and time. I probably printed in total 5 things from it. So lame.

I received this error and have spent hours trying to fix this.  What has anyone else tried successfully.

 

Canon's response was to buy another printer.  This one is only 2 years old.  My last HP lasted 10 years and was still working great when i replaced it.

Same problem. 2 1/2 year old printer and Canon said it is unrepairable.  It should have lasted more than 2 1/2 years. This will be my last Canon purchase.

Re: MG7520 Error B203

My printer is only 2 1/2 years old and I got this error.  Canon's answer is to buy another printer.  Ok. I will go buy another HP as my last HP, that the Canon MG6620 replaced, lasted 10 years.  I held on to the old HP for some unknown reason.  I plugged it in tonight and with the exception of black ink being empty the HP still works.

 

Goodbye Canon.

Re: MG7520 Error B203

I've got an MG6850 and i had the same error code.

I used to trust Canon but i don't now.

I followed some advice to open the maching then plug in and as the heads moved close the lid after that it worked.

I wonder how long for.

The inks are penomally expensive and difficult to get.

Re: MG7520 Error B203

I have a MG7550 and it have never work well

 

I have spent a lot of time and money on this product
My printer is just over 2 years old and has not worked well since I bought it and it's not much I've used It's so bad that it's easier to send what I need printede to my children and on their old HP printer, Print it out.
It has been 4 times for service and 2 times for repair and now it's out. Help code 203
i never want anything to do with canon again and want everyone who will hear me discourage to buy something that canon has produced
I feel like I've been crazy. to buy the produkt producer buy Canon.....
canon is terrible useless and a total waste of mone...
Use your money on a printer that does not come from Canon
or what you think of buying just do not!  buy Canon

This worked for me also. Found this after calling Canon. Canon also told me it is not fixable.

I had this error also.  Followed your method and it worked for me.  Is your printer still working?  If not, how much longer did it work?
