    Hi Jorn Pedersen, I am assuming from what little I could dig up on the internet that this is a Cannon printer, but we need more information than that. Please give us the model number, i.e. the Cannon MX700.

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.

I have a similiar issue that just started happening recently - the printer shows FULL inks but the PC thinks it has empty inks. I tried the * #, 123 reset hardware failures, but that didnt help. Printer run self diagnostics says all is fine....

I am using USB connections - and this has been fine for years, until now. Maybe a microsoft patch issue?

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

Canon pixma ip 4300 colour problems


If they are generic inks, sometimes the colors aren't quite right, also in your machine you can't use the photo inks, the photo magenta and photo cyan are not the right shade for your machine. You need plain magenta and plain cyan. Beyond that you may need a new printhead.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Brother mfc-410cn colour cartridge problem


There may be three problems here.

1.Not doubting your skills for one minute, nor wishing to offend you in any way, but did you remove the protection strip off of the Magenta ink cartridge? Sometimes we forget to do that.

2.Once a new ink catridge is installed, it's best to go to the Brother diagnostic tools section, and run a test. Sometimes an error code is kept, (Ink cartridge is empty), and the diagnostic tool checks this out. It then clears the error code, and 'recognizes' the new ink cartridge.

3.Ink may have dried, for the tiny little holes for the magenta ink cartridge, where it attaches to the body of the printer. Just this one ink cartridge. Suggest you don a pair of rubber dishwashing gloves. MFC-410cn -> Unplugged <- from the surge protector, use a clean, lint free, warm water, damp cloth, and wipe the holes for the ink cartridge, where it lines up with the printer body. This will be where you see that copper metal strip. (Or perhaps it's brass)

To clarify, you are cleaning the printer body. The area where the ink cartridge goes, and the metal strip. The ink passes from the ink cartridge, and goes through holes in the body of the printer. The metal strip is where these holes are located. Allow this area to dry. You may want to use a hair dryer set on low heat to speed the drying process up. Constantly move the hair dryer back and forth. Keep it about a finger length away.

Once you are satisfied this are is dry, reinsert the magenta ink cartridge. Plug the printer back into power. Advise waiting one minute, then turn the printer on.
Use the Brother diagnostic tool.

Should you not be able to find the Brother diagnostic tool, I suggest you go to Start>Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs>Go over to Brother>MFC-410cn>and to the Help section. The Help section, will tell you how to open the diagnostic tool.

I am getting a strong magenta colour cast, despite thorough cleaning - help


I removed both cyan ink cartridges and replaced them with new. The printer worked as expected. I figured one of them was not putting enough ink down.

Later when each of the new cyan (light and dark) ran out, I replaced them with the ones I had removed earlier. I found no problem.

Don't have a clue what was wrong.

Perhaps unrelated, my printer now displays (a month later) and error message to replace internal components. It has been used for several years and is at end of life span, so says the message.
