First of all print a nozzlle check....then see all the color patterns.
The second you can do is to update the firmware to the latest version.
But i think that you have to replace the print head.

Canon pixma mg5220 wrong printhead error u052


Were you aware of the Canon printer class action suit?

Canon USA Inc Consumer Class Action and
http://www.federmanlaw.com/Websites/federmanlaw/images/QUESTIONNAIRE.pdf

"...at least 16 different Canon printer models have been identified that display an error message of "U052: Wrong Printhead Error," after limited use. This error indicates that the printer does not recognize the printhead, or that the printhead itself is faulty, but disables all functions of the printer, including scanning and facsimile capabilities, rendering the printer unsuitable for its intended purpose and use."

Error code U052; keeps saying incorrect printhead installed - the printhead has never been changed


Per Canon's website, and this just worked for my mp620:
Turn the printer on.
Open the cover.
Remove the ink cartridges.
Remove the printhead.
Re-install the above (this resets the printhead).
Close the cover.
Printer should initialize and go to home menu screen.

Print head problem


Dear palia1234,
Blinking in orange 5 times indicates that the printhead error occurs. You need to replace the printhead with a new one. But be careful before replacing the printhead, check your printhead if any smoke smell or indication of short circuitry present. Replacing the printhead in this case will harm new printhead. You'd better to take your printer to the nearest service center.

Regards,

Adjusting printheads - won't stop and keeps printing blank pages


Hi Did you have any print jobs sent to the printer before replacing the printhead. It seems that the printer is trying to print a job and since the usb cable has been disconnected and reconnected the printer is printing blank pages or misc text.

I keep getting a printhead error....I have replaced the printhead with the canon spec printhead and I keep getting the same error message.....any thoughts?thanks,Parker


Check the wiring assemble connecting the printhead to the printer and where the wiring connects to the printer. Anything loose here would prevent the unit from correctly reading the sensors on the printhead. Just a thought.

Canon imagePROGRAF W8200 InkJet Printer Problem Printhead Error! Turn Power Off!


you need to enter a service mode before the error message pops up. hold down paper source button + online.
that should override the message before it pops up.
go to replace print head selection. or do a clean. it may still be working. let me know if this doesn't work....but at least you can still get past the message now! marty
