Hello,

I advice you clean the print head of your printer, because when error message of such are display on the screen of printer, it means the print head is dirty or perhaps bad.

Clean the print head on your printer, if after cleaning the problem still persist, then, it means the print head is bad and will need to be replace in other for the printer to carry on. clean the print head first to see if there will be difference if not replace the print head.

Take care.

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.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

I'm getting a message all of a sudden that "the type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head." I have not doen anything to the printer to change the print head that has been working...


Hi,
It means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4546483-canon-pixma-mp830-printer-service-manual

Message shows: install correct print head


After you do what the error message says then you have to go through the keyboard and clear the error as per the user manual instructions. God bless.

Nothing will print


5 times The print head is not installed [1401], or it is not properly installed (EEPROM data of the print head is faulty) [1403 / 1405]. Install the print head properly, and close the access cover. Or, with the print head installed, turn the printer off and on. This might help
