    Its been a long time since I have had any problems, but this looks serious... MX922 printer giving me a B200 error. Took carts out and cleaned all contacts but still error. So what is this thing telling me.

    There comes a time to say farewell my friend, because you have done all you can to save her, but the print head has given up on you, and the choices now are a new head or a new machine..

    P.S. you could try removing the carts and head and leaving the printer powered off for ½ hour, then turn it on and add the head first then later the carts, this procedure can sometimes reset the error message. (Sometimes) :(

    Thats what I was afraid of. I will try what you recommend.. Can you recommend a replacement printer that is all in one with duplex. Where the carts are refillable and re-settable. Ive been looking on the Canon site and looks like I see a few but cant tell any info about the carts.:(

    I also see a new mx922 machine is a available for $79 US, so I think a new head is out of the question...

    If you want a good tuff all-round printer then check out the Canon Maxify, there are many models to pick from to suite your pocket, there not cheap but then you will be getting a quality-built printer.

    They have many of the bells and whistles you’re looking for in a desktop printer with the added bonus they can be refilled with ease and come with big cartridgesso, so no need to be buying OEM inks...

    Am I right to assume that these Maxify printers will not give me a photo print as good as my old mx922 because they have a lot less resolution?

    I think you are right. The Maxify is an office printer, not a photo printer, see this post by @mikling .

    No where as good as your old MX922, but they are still pretty reasonable and they don’t fade like the photos from the MX922, so horses for courses..

    I don’t reckon you’d be to unhappy with the photo quality, it’s not perfect but there has to be some trade offs...
