Question about Canon PIXMA MP610 InkJet Printer
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
