SOURCE: Canon MP530 U052 Error
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
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 ??

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

Testimonial: "Thanks for your quick response - I thought there was a resetting tool available so I can at least remove the message and get printer going."
my 1 yr old MX855 got the U052 message after I replaced 2 cartridges.
Called Canon Support. They said this has nothing to do with the cartridges.
Printhead is damaged or not set right. He walked me through resetting it.Open lid, remove cartridges, lift gray lever and pop it open to the top. Remove black plastic box which holds cartridges. Inspect bottom print head. If shiny and clean, re-insert it. Lower grey lever which is spring loaded. When it snaps down it holds printhead in place. This worked for me.
