CHECK CARTRIDGE u052


Remove all ink tanks (printer is on), remove printer ink cartridge carrier head. clean head with alcohol wipes thoroughly, not contacts. Push in gently print cartridge pistons on cartridge carrier. Reseat print cartridge and ink tanks, replace any very low ink one's. turn off printer, unplug electrical, remove usb on printer and computer. plug all back in, turn on. Alarm and message should disappear. Clean and realign with software.

Hi their My MP530 printer reads CHECK CARTRIDGE U052, the manual does not help, can anyone help me please?


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

Reseat the Print Cartridge. Go to Canon site (see below) and search for U052 error. I followed the directions with pictures and the error went away. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=13371

Hi!

The U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding . They fit these chips to try to prevent refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage. Many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over

Please rate this solution.

NB. I have seen some suggestions that canon's have a 'Service Mode' that allows you to disable the cartridge chip checking and allow you to print no matter what .. however I've never found any details ... perhaps some-one else has the details ??
