Cannon MP600 error message U052

I pulled out a sheet of paper from my printer and since that time, I have received an error U052 message. Can you help me solve the problem?

    Sorry I only use Canon Cartridges, I changed out the larger one but that did not help. I guess it is off to buy a new printer.

    Thanks for trying to help,

    Dreade UO52 error code informs me that an incorrect print head is fitted. The print head is the one originally supplied with the brand new printer 3 years ago. All cartridges are genuine Canon (no flashing lights, so ink levels are good). Have removed all cartridges, removed the print and refitted it all. Result?, one print then UO52 again! Tried contacting Canon, eventually routed to a call centre in Holland, unimpressed with the negligible knowledge imparted.

    Have you unplugged it from the outlet for at least 5 minutes?

Hello all, I have had an MP600 for a few years now, and after paying about £50-£60 a set of inks i decided to use compatible ones and i also spent £20.00 on a ink resetter from Sudhaus http://www.patronenhandel.de/shop/en/Redsetter/MP-Serie/MP-600/mit-Refill-Set
After about a year of owning the MP600 i got the dreaded U052 error, so i went back to genuine inks, however this did not clear the error. i then decided to telephone Canon and they advised me to clean the print head thoroughly. If you look at the print head there is a white plate with 2 screws either side, i rmoved that CAREFULLY and cleaned behind it, i reinstalled everything back to normal and 2 years later i am still running perfect with no issues what so ever...I'm not sure what resolved the issue but i now refill my genuine cartridges myself and reset the chip with the Sudhaus resetter. To refill your cartridge use the tube inside the genuine ink cartridge DO NOT refill from the top, you will see the 2 arrows on the GENUINE ink cartridge pierce between there and use a long syringe to refill.
Hope this helps people in the future.

Hi there,
The dreaded U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding .. Canon (like all printer mfgs) makes all it's profit from selling Ink .. so they fit these chips to try to prevent you refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge
You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and (it seems) the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage .. many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over .. or even when fitting the original genuine cartridges to a brand new unit for the first time ...
If the unit is brand new, take it back and demand a replacement ... if you have just swapped over the chip onto a compatible cartridge, you can try buying a genuine Canon cartridge (which will have a new chip) = hopefully that will do the trick

Turned on printer. It completed its system check fine. One sheet of paper went through the printer with no problem. Then the error message "Paper output slot: the paper is jammed. Clear the paper...


Make sure there is no paper even a small piece of it inside the printer. Open all doors and close, remove and replace cartridges and then power off and power on to printer! Most often its a minor problem can be corrected by these measures!

Cannon Mp600. I have an error code 6A00


Try
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Cannon MP600-where do you see Error Code? I just get "Paper output slot" paper is jammed; but it's not!


That error usually comes from the sensor under the platen roller. It's a tiny black plastic piece that the paper pushes when it passes under the platen roller. The end can bend when you pull out a jam, or a tiny paper scrap can hold it down. The same screen gives error codes when there are other malfunctions, the error now is just that sensor.
