The gray-colored arm (it's not that small) is to the right of the cyan cartridge. It is the arm or extension of the gray-colored hinged cover. Remove all ink cartridges, lift the gray-colored arm up, and pull the print head out. Clean the print head with a cotton ball soaked with water or rubbing alcohol. Dry and re-install the print head.

SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printer head error
Print heads for nearly all printers are rated at 2 years. You may also need to clean the tube from the resevoir at the ink supply to the cartridge and clean the working resevoir on the cartridge as well. If you are up to this challenge there is a how-to at your manufacturer's web site or you can have a tech do it. Most people, when they realize how inky you will be getting choose to have a tech do this.
It is best to use 100% denatured alcohol, from your hardware store, to clean these parts and tubing. But, you must take precautions.
DO NOT USE DENATURED ALCOHOL UNLESS YOU READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BACK OF THE CAN.
I'm not kidding about the precautions. I do all this stuff outside when there is a breeze in the air and then I stay up wind of my work.
If you have any questions whatsoever just feel free to comment back to me.

The important point is moving the head to the left, or sliding it left or right, so you can actually SEE the LEVER. It is hidden otherwise and what appears to be the obvious lever on the top is the wrong lever. If you have pressed the correct lever the unit removes very easily. If it is hard and you cannot make progress chances are you have not found the correct LEVER!

you wont like what you find. lol .
apparently if you call cannon support they going to tell you its a U052 is a temperature sensor error. and not the print head error. someone musta did some bad programming. lol
try returning the cartridge if its not a canon specific cartridge - and get replacement - try that - but i doubt its going to work - i would call about a new one (print head that is - they will also apparently send you a new print head.) as i have read up on
hope this helped x404x
