"...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."

U052 mean the FINE cartridge may not be install properly,or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine.Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting out put is not satisfactory carry out the FINE Cartridge Alignment.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP600 - Error Message U052 ... incorrect print head

my 1 yr old MX855 got the U052 message after I replaced 2 cartridges.
Called Canon Support. They said this has nothing to do with the cartridges.
Printhead is damaged or not set right. He walked me through resetting it.Open lid, remove cartridges, lift gray lever and pop it open to the top. Remove black plastic box which holds cartridges. Inspect bottom print head. If shiny and clean, re-insert it. Lower grey lever which is spring loaded. When it snaps down it holds printhead in place. This worked for me.

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.

Error code U052 how do I get rid of it for good?


U052 is a temperature sensor in the works below the cartridges. Canon can ship you the part; it's not the inks cart, but then it's not for me to say 5 minutes with the power off or 20 with either a solvent cartridge (especially on any colors with stripe dropouts) or cleaning the works and reseating flex cables won't fix it. (Take it to a Canon shop per any surviving repair warrants; it's serious enough.)

Error code U052; keeps saying incorrect printhead installed - the printhead has never been changed


Per Canon's website, and this just worked for my mp620:
Turn the printer on.
Open the cover.
Remove the ink cartridges.
Remove the printhead.
Re-install the above (this resets the printhead).
Close the cover.
Printer should initialize and go to home menu screen.
