Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with the best answer possible.
The B200 error indicates that the printhead assembly as well as the Logic board has overheated and shorted out. The printhead and logic board needs to be replaced to get everything back to alright.
If your unit is under warranty then you can get it repaired from CANON free of cost.
I am extremely sorry for giving you a bad news. I just wanted to be completely honest with you.
Is there anything else I can help you with?

now that you have scapped me for your diagnosis, what is the cost of the circuit boards that have to be replaced?
Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

Let me check!

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
What kind of service is this, now you want me to give you access to my MacPro for further testing at an additional charge of $39 more? No just give me the circuit boards to replace

That is an auto-generated ad from the website. It was not sent by me.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

Please ignore.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

The printhead part # QY6-0081-000. It will cost you around 300$-350$.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

I would suggest you take your printer to Canon or a local printer repair shop to diagnose the logic board and the printhead. It might be a case the printhead is good only the logic board has failed.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Okay, so what has this diagnosis and Printhead part # information actually cost me?
Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

If you can give me your city name. I will find a nearby repair shop.

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 month ago.

Else, if you want to repair it on your own let me know. It would require soldering skills and a Digital Multimeter.

I am sorry to say the service manual is not available for this printer. I won't recommend disassembling such an expensive printer without the service manual.
