replacement for Canon Pixma 3200 printer

Can someone suggest a printer to replace my Canon Pixm 4300 which has suddenly stopped printing with a b200 service error. It is quite a few years old. I would like one which can print on DVDs, although admittedly I don't use this facility very much, it is rather nice to have.

I have looked up several solutions for the error, but none seem to work. When you open the lid the cartridge carrier doesn't slide across. So, unless anyone has any bright ideas, I need a new printer and I am used to Canon.

Many thanks.

Error b200 is an overheated print-head, sometimes it can be fixed by removing and cleaning but mostly not and a replacement print-head is not an economical repair.

If you want to stick with Canon and still print CDs and DVDs you could try the ip4950 which is the only one I could find that is not multifunctional.

I, too, like Canon. I have an iPad and the Canon app is brilliant provided you have a wireless printer. Last night, I loaded some photo paper in the printer, sat in the front room with the iPad and, while watching the football out of the corner of my eye, sent about 20 photos to the Canon. They all printed perfectly.

Just too easy!
