Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MX892?

I have never updated...I did not know that I had to!

B200 Error Code
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

I am sorry to say I have a bad news for you.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

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.
The printhead and logic board are very expensive, unfortunately, the cost of repairs may be more than a new printer itself. If your unit is under warranty then you can get it repaired from CANON free of cost.

Is the CA $52 you will charge, on top[ of the CA$39?
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

Please ignore the premium service request.

what exactly does it entail that you are going to do?
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

It's sent by the system and not by me. It's completely optional.

Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

In your case, it's not helpful as it's a hardware problem.

then please give me an amount in TOTAl for you working remotely on my printer?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I do not want a monthly service fee! It is not worth the price that I paid for this printer!
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

The secure remote session only helps when there is a software issue. In, your case it's a hardware issue.

Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

It won't help.

but if it is just a hardware issue then what is the one-time amount please?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
OK...if that's the case, is there anything you can do?
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

I am sorry but I am the technical guy. I have no idea regarding the monetary matters.

Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

I can walk you through the steps of replacing the parts of the printer but the cost of replacement may be more than a new printer itself.

Understood...Well thank you for your honesty...what will my credit card be charged for this call?
Technician: Md. Sadique, Engineer replied 6 months ago

If your unit is under warranty then you can get it repaired from CANON free of cost.

No...it is no longer under warranty unfortunately!
