I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!

U052 is the error given when the mainboard is no longer communicating correctly with the printhead. All you can do is to make sure the printhead is firmly attached in the carrier, the pins in the carrier that make the contact to the head are in good working order and the ribbon cable that connects the carrier to the mainboard is intact and firmly plugged in.
If all the above are correct then the processor of the mainboard has failed - the printer is effectively dead and unfixable. The only way to fix it would be by replacing the mainboard and that is not sold as a spare.
Sorry, time for a new printer.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
