Install the correct print head".I have removed the print head and reinstalled it which temporarily fixed the problem but then the message has now reappeared.Any suggestions?Brian Fairly new MP970 Canon Printer started to display this U052 message. I have not even gone thru the original ink. It is the original print head that came with the printer that I bought in March 08. I was able to take it out and reinstall it the first two times but now nothing I do will make it work.

Dear dgthorpe,
This indicates that printhead of your printer faulty. Commonly this problem come with short circuitry problem in printhead so it may harm logic board and carriage unit too. I suggest you to try checking with another printhead first.
Regards,

A lot of Canon printer's users come across with the error message, "U052 This type of print head is incorrect." It is a very common error on Canon printers and is fairly easy to troubleshoot.

There are two different scenarios related to U052 kind of error message.One is where the print head is not installed at all and then it is giving the 'U052 This type of print head is incorrect' error message.

And, the second scenario is where the print head is installed nut it is not functioning properly or probably not working at all. The below section will show step by step troubleshooting of both the scenarios.
