Canon Pixma MX700 printer error code B200

I am getting a B200 error code on my Canon Pixma MX700 multifunction printer. It is now a huge paperweight. Won't do anything.

I checked Canon's website, manual, etc. and cannot find out what this error code means. Help, please.
Follow-up --

I called Canon technical support. I was told a B200 error could be a number of things: printhead, sensors. It was "something internal". I must say the Canon tech support person was very helpful and didn't ask me for money up front although my printer is a few years old.

Unfortunately, when I turned the multifunctional printer on, it beeped and then went dead. Not sure if there is a short circuit and it's toast or what. The Canon tech can't help me unless I can get it to light up. I was advised to take it to a local Canon tech.

I will try some troubleshooting before I decide what to do further. Will post here again if I have good info for you.

This error is about print head overheating. A short circuit in print head wiring might be a cause of the printer death. :(
