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 ??

SOURCE: My canon MP610 shows an error message U052 Incorrect print head

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

Testimonial: "Thanks for your quick response - I thought there was a resetting tool available so I can at least remove the message and get printer going."

SOURCE: we have canon pixma mp550

The B200 error is "Printhead Temperature exceeded", What this means that while you were printing some document, either one or more of the printhead ink wells ran out of ink and the printing continued. Printing without ink in the wells will overheat the nozzles and can potentially burn the out. 
If the error will not go away once you have unplugged the printer for at least 5 minutes, then there is the possibility that you have already burnt out the head. Remove the printhead and use a 5x magnification glass to look VERY CLOSE at all of the nozzles to see if you can detect any possible burnt out nozzle. If there are the a new head is mandatory. Just be sure it's worth it - a new printer might be cheaper.

SOURCE: ERROR 6000 ON MY CANON PRINTER MP550

The front panel was open ON MP550 and had been hit by the a recliner. There is a sensor on that front door that detects that it is open. I had to take the front door off, reach in the slot on the left side of the opening, slide the sensor back up, and reinstall the door while holding the sensor up. Error 6000 went away!!!

"...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.

U052


To try and resolve the U052 error on your PIXMA MP550, please remove the ink tanks and print head from the printer, then reseat them. If you still experience the same issue, please turn off the printer, unplug the power cord from the back and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on. If the issue is still unresolved, unfortunately, the printer will require servicing to resolve the issue.

You can contact Cannon here: Canon Contact Us

This information originally from: My printer Canon MP530 stopped working with an Canon Forum (also has a walk through for removing the printer head and ink cartridges.)

Just so you know, the 530 and 550 are the same machine, except the 550 has a few small improvements.

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.
