Re: PIXMA MX922 with error code B200 (Series MX920)

Hi Gusbuf

B200 is a bitch. Once it manifests in your printer, it just keeps on coming back!

My MX922 is about 3 years old and The "Keefe Solution" has always worked for me, but sometimes it takes 5 or 6 times, accompanied by choice curses and other demon-like vocalizations, inbetween unlugging the printer from the wall socket and/or the back of the printer itself and waiting a bit.  I will admit to slightly swatting the recalcitrant machine in desperation, as well.

Maybe try it again? Gregorian chant? Scented candles? Incense? Supplications to underworld deities?

Best of luck.

Re: PIXMA MX922 with error code B200 (Series MX920)

This worked for me too but the directions were ambiguous; It states "Wait for print carriage to start moving to the left and..."

The carriage doesn't really go to the left. It goes to the right and back to the center. So, waiting for it to go left, it stopped. I decided to just close the cover at that point and after the printer wasted a bunch of ink, it worked again.

Thanks!

Re: PIXMA MX922 with error code B200 (Series MX920)

[ Edited ]

Having encountered the dreaded B200 error code on my Canon MX922, I ran through the various proposed steps discussed here, including removing and cleaning the print head, and resetting the print head with the (print head) cover open. I still received the B200 error code.  However, once I turned the printer off and manually moved the print head to the center position (i.e., from the side position it normally ends in) (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8cdisDr5Zw for a demonstration of this manual resetting; I know it's a different Canon printer, it's still the same technique), and then restarted the printer, and then ran a Maintenance/Check Nozzle just to make sure there wasn't still an issue with some sort of clog, the error cleared, and I've been able to print normally.

 

One problem with having had no success with either the "open cover" method or the "manually clean print head" technique, but having success after the "manual movement of print head" technique, is that I can't definitively say if it was only the "manual movement" that fixed the B200 error, or rather some combination of the three techinques.  Anyway, as long as it's back to printing.

 

Thanks to all for the help.

Canon MX922 Printer B200 Error - Repair Report

 

  1. Problem: Printer displays Error B200 and won’t proceed.
  2. Removed ink cartridges – 3 totally empty; 1 almost empty; 1 Pigment black O.K.
  3. Replaced all ink cartridges with new cartridges.
  4. Printer still displayed Error B200 and wouldn’t proceed.
  5. Much online research and attempted solutions, but no success.
  6. Finally, turned OFF printer and opened cartridge access door. Turned ON printer and when print head moved to access position, unplugged power cord.
  7. Removed ink cartridges
  8. Removed Print Head (lever release pulled forward, tipped the head and slid it out).
  9. Flushed Print Head with hot water until no ink. Used 50cc syringe with 8-gauge cannula and Tygon tubing 1/4” nipple to force hot water through ink channels until no ink. Blew out ink channels with dry syringe. Wiped down ink droplet dispenser with isopropyl alcohol until no ink color.
  10. Replaced dried Print Head and reset release bar.
  11. Replaced all the new ink cartridges.
  12. Re-started printer with cartridge access doors open. After Print Head moved to access position and all cartridges were lighted and not flashing, printer displayed “Door Open – Close Door”. I DID NOT close door, because if I did the printer would display “Error B200” and freeze!
  13. I instructed the connected computer (in “printer maintenance”) to do a “Deep Cleaning”. When completed, I closed the door(s) and instructed it to do a “Nozzle Check”.

 

The printer operated normally and gave a GOOD nozzle check report.

 

Trouble Shooting 102 - Problem solved.

Re: PIXMA MX922 with error code B200 (Series MX920)

This is my second Canon with this problem. First was a Pixma MX870 now my MX922. I got a lot of use from the 870 so I accepted it was done. Buying a print head for $90 didn’t make sense because I bought it for $85 on sale. Now my MX922 was not used for 1/3 the print jobs of the 870 and I got the b200 for the second time. I cleaned it over night put it back and got couldn’t recognize the ink cartridge code. I switched to grayscale and it prints. Bought new ink today and b200 is back. 

Removed head put back ink and grayscale and it works.  I don’t think I have much time left.
