Question about Canon MX882 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MX882 U052 code, "incorrect" print head error, already tried the basics

I cleaned and soaked the print head, cleaned contacts, turned off and unplugged for hours. Eventually got it to work for a few days, but now I'm getting the error again. I also refilled and cleaned the ink cartridges. It is the original print head that came with the printer. This happened before, and I cleaned/soaked the print head, then it worked for months. Is there anything else I can do before replacing it? Does anyone actually know what is going on inside the machine? I assume there may be a reset/override code I can enter into the printer, because this is the right print head. Thanks a lot.

The print head electronics are failing, you may get a little more life out of it but I'm sorry to say that nine times out of ten the printhead will need replacement.

the part # is QY6-0080

10% of the time the printhead and logic board will both be faulty and require replacement AT THE SAME TIME, a faulty board can trash a good head and a faulty head has been known to trash a good logic board.

you will need at least 40% ink in each of your cartridges to prime the new printhead

SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printer head error

Hello,

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.

Regards,
Worldvet

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

"...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."

Errr u052 cannot print .


A lot of Canon printer's users come across with the error message, "U052 This type of print head is incorrect." It is a very common error on Canon printers and is fairly easy to troubleshoot.

There are two different scenarios related to U052 kind of error message.One is where the print head is not installed at all and then it is giving the 'U052 This type of print head is incorrect' error message.

And, the second scenario is where the print head is installed nut it is not functioning properly or probably not working at all. The below section will show step by step troubleshooting of both the scenarios.

Description

Reseat the Print Head to resolve the U051 / U052 error.

Solution

Errors displayed on the printer's LCD screen:

  • U051 Print head is not installed. Install the print head.

Reseat the Print Head:

  2. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover), then hold it open with the Scanning Unit Support (A). (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
  3. Remove all the Ink Tanks in the following manner.
    1. Push the tab (B) and lift the ink tank to remove.
    2. Do not touch the Print Head Lock Lever (C) while removing the ink tanks.
  4. Once the ink tanks have been removed, raise the print head lock lever.
  5. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.




    Caution: Do not touch the print head nozzles <1> , electrical contacts <2>, or ink supply ports <3>. Doing so may cause printing problems.



    *Before proceeding to next step, check the carriage area for packing material, torn paper, etc. and remove if found
  6. Tilt the Print Head and set it in place. Lower the Print Head Lock Lever (E) completely.
  7. Insert ink tanks into the print head.
    1. Insert the front end of ink tank into the Print Head at a slant. Make sure that the position of the ink tank matches the label.
    2. Press the mark (Push) on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
      Make sure that the ink lamp lights up red.
  8. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover) slightly to set the Scanning Unit Support back to its original position, and gently close the Scanning Unit (Cover).

    Caution: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.
