As [I assume] all that has happened is the printer has been packed and moved, possibly a slight knock has caused a contact dislodge.
So remove the printer head and reinstall it.
Then remove the printer software from the computer and reinstall it.
See what happens.
Further advice can be obtained from
type in you printer model to gtet the the appropriate forum

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.

Have error message UO52 print head is incorrect, have installed correct ink cartridges what do I do ?


It could in fact be a defective print head problem but try cleaning it first:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

U052 error

UO52 error is either a print head temp sensor error or faulty EEPROM data from the print head. You need to re-set the print head. If that fails then a new print head is required.
