After repeated attempts to fix the error on my 2 Canon printers, I finally found the definitive solution. I found both printers (hardly used) a new home at the town dump, and bought a Brother printer. No more printing problems!

Ok guys I tried all the little reset tricks , unplug hold power button, then maintenance menu ect. None worked- Solution~ Take the ink cartridges out -remove print head , comes right out clean with water until its clean making sure not to get water on the pcb electrical connection on back, to speed up the drying process I used a air pump to air dry in about 4 to 5 minutes. Replace everything when done. Works awesome. Btw I have the cannon m560 I love this printer its been solid for years and ink is cheap online. Good luck and just do it. Its very simple and took 10 minutes tops to do. peace

I fixed my m560, none of the tricks worked. Simply remove ink and header and wash with water making sure not to get the pcb electrical connector wet. Let dry completley when done "I used a air gun to blow dry mine in 5 minutes" . Put everything back and works perfect now. good luck

This method worked for me, somehow. I've been having problems with B200 error and after this procedure I cannot see this pop up on my printer. I even was able to copy from the glass both in grayscale and color. Before this I tried to cover with tape two pins (first row from the top, 2nd and 3rd pin on the right) and do a hard reset (turn on the printer with the lid opened, close the lid when the printhead reaches near the end of its way to the left) but it prevented me to print in colorus! As I later found out those pins are responsible for it, this is good workaround way if someone dont print in colour.
However now I cannot print from my computer, every printing task I am sending to the printer gets stuck.

Just wanted to update, After cleaning the in header out with water and air drying ect. It printed fine until the next time i went to turn on. Got the B200 error again. I removed the ink header again washed with water and air dried and bingo working again. This time after getting it working I went and did all the maintenance in the settings menu on the printer. Clean nozzle, deep clean header and header alignment. I am on day 3 now, I turn it on everyday so far and print with no problems. finger crossed

Very pleased, this in part sorted the Error B200 on my MP 560.
Followed your method unsuccessfully 1st time. Repeated 2nd but by slowly pressing & removing finger 5 times on Power button.
Still no direct luck but it did ask for 2 new ink cartridges at this stage which then produced a copy 1st, then normal printing there after.
So fab ...resolved

I tried this today and it didn't fix anything. I ried it a coiuple more times until I was waiting for the printer to respond and it just turned off and does not wan to turn on ever again. So this solution pretty much killed the printer.
