The front panel was open ON MP550 and had been hit by the a recliner. There is a sensor on that front door that detects that it is open. I had to take the front door off, reach in the slot on the left side of the opening, slide the sensor back up, and reinstall the door while holding the sensor up. Error 6000 went away!!!

SOURCE: It's a canon mp550 - when I start to print he

Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

A common experience among users of various Canon inkjet printers. The lawsuit settlement is close to being finalized so join soon.

Canon USA Inc Consumer Class Action and
http://www.federmanlaw.com/Websites/federmanlaw/images/QUESTIONNAIRE.pdf

"...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."
