The B200 error is usually caused by a faulty ink cartridge, and -- when it's not -- is almost always caused by a clogged print head.

The surest way to rule out the former is to replace your ink cartridges. Assuming the problem then persists, you will want to clean your print head:

Remove the print head from your printer, and wash it (with hot water) several times. Allow the print head to dry for 12 hours, and then try the process again!

9 times out of 10, that will resolve the issue. I hope it does for you!
