Canon MX360 U052 Error - no apparent way to remove printer head; appears to be unlike other Canon models with a easily removable print head

U052 Error related to 'cleaning printer head'. Most other Canon models have bar that you lift once the print cartridge is removed. Lifting the bar allows easy removal of print head. This model does not have a locking bar. It is not apparent how to remove the existing head without pulling off the chassis. Don't think you should have to do that...

HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Canon MP F50 "wrong cartridge" error

remove all cartridges leaving printhead intact.
close cover, turn off
turn on, let power up, error message should be gone.
open cover, reinstall cartridges
if you cleaned your print head like I did you'll probly
eventually end up getting a new one anyway, due to the color variations
but I can at least print text.

Errr u052 cannot print .


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.

U052 This type of print head is incorrect

U052


To try and resolve the U052 error on your PIXMA MP550, please remove the ink tanks and print head from the printer, then reseat them. If you still experience the same issue, please turn off the printer, unplug the power cord from the back and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on. If the issue is still unresolved, unfortunately, the printer will require servicing to resolve the issue.

You can contact Cannon here: Canon Contact Us

This information originally from: My printer Canon MP530 stopped working with an Canon Forum (also has a walk through for removing the printer head and ink cartridges.)

Just so you know, the 530 and 550 are the same machine, except the 550 has a few small improvements.

Canon MP660 U052 Error


Remove and reinstall your Printer Cartridges. Else, you will need to take your printer to a Canon Service Center to have them replace your faulty Print Head / Temperature Sensor that is causing the U052 Error.

Description

Reseat the Print Head to resolve the U051 / U052 error.

Solution

Errors displayed on the printer's LCD screen:

  • U051 Print head is not installed. Install the print head.
  • U052 The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head.
Reseat the Print Head:
  1. Make sure that the power is turned on, and open the Paper Output Tray gently
  2. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover), then hold it open with the Scanning Unit Support (A). (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
  3. Remove all the Ink Tanks in the following manner.
    1. Push the tab (B) and lift the ink tank to remove.
    2. Do not touch the Print Head Lock Lever (C) while removing the ink tanks.
  4. Once the ink tanks have been removed, raise the print head lock lever.
  5. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.




    Caution: Do not touch the print head nozzles <1> , electrical contacts <2>, or ink supply ports <3>. Doing so may cause printing problems.



    *Before proceeding to next step, check the carriage area for packing material, torn paper, etc. and remove if found
  6. Tilt the Print Head and set it in place. Lower the Print Head Lock Lever (E) completely.
  7. Insert ink tanks into the print head.
    1. Insert the front end of ink tank into the Print Head at a slant. Make sure that the position of the ink tank matches the label.
    2. Press the mark (Push) on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
      Make sure that the ink lamp lights up red.
  8. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover) slightly to set the Scanning Unit Support back to its original position, and gently close the Scanning Unit (Cover).

    Caution: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.

    Note: When the next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.
