Canon MP620 Error B200

January 21, 2017 at 08:12:54
Specs: Windows 10, Intel i3, 8gb
My Canon MP620 has overnight stopped working. Although I have Windows 10 for some time it has worked fine. However when I tried to print this morning it displayed error B200. The manual says just to switch it off, leave it a while and switch it on again. This didn't work.

Nothing seems to clear the error. Took out the cartridges, lifted out the print head holder, checked it for any obvious problems and replaced everything. Still get the error.

Is this the end for my printer or is there anything that can be done to fix it? If I can't fix it at home I guess it's not worth getting fixed professionally. Really would appreciate some advise on this.

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

Hi AJS, are you using ink from Canon or another non Canon supplier.
Often using the wrong ink (or toner) can cause problems.

Google is your friend with such problems,, searching for:-

finds many hits, and tips on how to remedy, such as:-

Please advise back on progress.

But the video in #2 is excellent...; very clearly details the whole test and clean process...

I would caution against using paint thinner as a cleansing solution for the contacts though; depending on which one is it may affect (interact with) the plastic of the print head carriage or print head itself.

Use either isopropyl alchohol (aka rubbing alchohol) or even better surgical spirit (available at Boots chemists). Or if available proper contact cleaner as used in the the electronics servicing field.
