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.)

"...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."

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 message U052


U051 indicates an ink cartridge that cannot be recognised by the printer. Sadly you cannot use your printer while this error remains.

I would advise the following:
-Remove the problem cartridge from the printer
-Wipe the gold contacts on the front of the cartridge with a piece of non fibrous tissue (like kitchen tissue).
-Re-install the cartridge.

If the error remains it is likely that there is a genuine problem with the cartridge. So I would advise getting in touch with whoever you purchased the cartridge from to arrange a replacement.

Canon MP660 U052 Error


Remove and reinstall your Printer Cartridges. Else, you will need to take your printer to a Canon Service Center to have them replace your faulty Print Head / Temperature Sensor that is causing the U052 Error.

Printing Error...


Hi!

The U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding . They fit these chips to try to prevent refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage. Many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over

Please rate this solution.
Thanks
