Had the very same problem on my faithful mp530. After I replaced the print head with a new one, everything worked fine again.

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.

Check ink U150 Alarm is on then i click all the ink cartridges down soall the red lights are on but when i close the lid the Alarm goes off again i have replaced all the ink cartridges with new ones...


After you have rechecked that they are all fitted correctly, (which I know you have already done,) check to make sure that the lid is engaging the switch that will show that it is closed correctly. If this fails, remove each cartridge and see if its switch is OK and not damaged. Once this has been achieved and it still does not respond, it is time for the proffesional.

Before you do that though, try a reset of the printer:

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in.
4. Turn the printer back on.

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

Canon MP530 U052 Error


Reseat the Print Cartridge. Go to Canon site (see below) and search for U052 error. I followed the directions with pictures and the error went away. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=13371

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.

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 ??
