"...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."

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.

Remove all ink tanks (printer is on), remove printer ink cartridge carrier head. clean head with alcohol wipes thoroughly, not contacts. Push in gently print cartridge pistons on cartridge carrier. Reseat print cartridge and ink tanks, replace any very low ink one's. turn off printer, unplug electrical, remove usb on printer and computer. plug all back in, turn on. Alarm and message should disappear. Clean and realign with software.

Hi their My MP530 printer reads CHECK CARTRIDGE U052, the manual does not help, can anyone help me please?


The dreaded U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding .. Canon (like all printer mfgs) makes all it's profit from selling Ink .. so they fit these chips to try to prevent you refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and (it seems) the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage .. many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over .. or even when fitting the original genuine cartridges to a brand new unit for the first time ...

If the unit is brand new, take it back and demand a replacement ... if you have just swapped over the chip onto a compatible cartridge, you can try buying a genuine Canon cartridge (which will have a new chip) = hopefully that will do the trick

Cannon MP600 error message U052


Hello all, I have had an MP600 for a few years now, and after paying about £50-£60 a set of inks i decided to use compatible ones and i also spent £20.00 on a ink resetter from Sudhaus http://www.patronenhandel.de/shop/en/Redsetter/MP-Serie/MP-600/mit-Refill-Set
After about a year of owning the MP600 i got the dreaded U052 error, so i went back to genuine inks, however this did not clear the error. i then decided to telephone Canon and they advised me to clean the print head thoroughly. If you look at the print head there is a white plate with 2 screws either side, i rmoved that CAREFULLY and cleaned behind it, i reinstalled everything back to normal and 2 years later i am still running perfect with no issues what so ever...I'm not sure what resolved the issue but i now refill my genuine cartridges myself and reset the chip with the Sudhaus resetter. To refill your cartridge use the tube inside the genuine ink cartridge DO NOT refill from the top, you will see the 2 arrows on the GENUINE ink cartridge pierce between there and use a long syringe to refill.
Hope this helps people in the future.

It's most likely an after market cartridge. Try a diiferent one or get the OEM.
