I called Canon Tech Support - they were very helpful. I removed all the ink tanks, then the print head, unplugged the machine, waited a couple of minutes, put it all back together and replaced the small black ink tank and the problem was solved.

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Canon mx892 error code U052


Please try the following to see if we can resolve this error:
1. Open the cover of the printer.
2. Remove all ink tanks from the printer.
3. Lift up the gray locking lever on the side of the ink tank holder.
4. Gently remove the print head from the carriage unit.
5. Place the print head back in and lock the lever down.
6. Place all of the ink tanks back in the printer.
7. Close the cover and turn the printer off.
8. Unplug the power from the printer. Leave the power unplugged for about 5-10 minutes.
Once this has been done, plug the power back in and turn the printer on. If the error persists, you will need to replace the print head

HOW TO RESET CANON MX 308


I found this in the canon troubleshooting guide:

The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print Head Cleaning, for example.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
However, because printing is disabled once the ink absorber becomes completely full and until the ink absorber is replaced, you are recommended to contact your Canon service representative as early as possible. (You will need to replace a particular part of the machine.)

I hope this is of some help. Good Luck

Ink and Toner is how Fax and Printer companies make their money, the machine is just a way to sell supplies.

Yes, you will have to replace the Toner/Ink because they lubricate the print heads/drums.
