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.

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.

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.

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.
