Question about Canon Pixma MX360 Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: Canon MP530 U052 Error
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
NB. I have seen some suggestions that canon's have a 'Service Mode' that allows you to disable the cartridge chip checking and allow you to print no matter what .. however I've never found any details ... perhaps some-one else has the details ??

6800 must be EEPROM error.Try this:
Turn off the printer.
Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.
Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times in succession. (you're still holding the POWER button during this). The printer mechanics will move momentarily. You're in SERVICE MODE now.
Press the RESUME 3 times.The lamp will alternate color with each key press.Then press POWER button.Wait 5 mins and press POWER again, the printer will turning off.
If this not help printer may need service.

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.

you wont like what you find. lol .
apparently if you call cannon support they going to tell you its a U052 is a temperature sensor error. and not the print head error. someone musta did some bad programming. lol
try returning the cartridge if its not a canon specific cartridge - and get replacement - try that - but i doubt its going to work - i would call about a new one (print head that is - they will also apparently send you a new print head.) as i have read up on
hope this helped x404x
