Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

U052 error - The type of print head is incorrect. I have not changed the print head from new, and have done all that was suggested in the on screen help list. It would appear that I have to replace the print head - is this cost affective on a soon to be 3yr old printer?

Have a read through this relevant class action lawsuit and apply for compensation when the case settles (soon).

"...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.

Canon MP600 printer, error msg. U052 Cleaning the printer head doesn't help. Replacing with new (full) cartridges doesn't help. The only one thing, that helps now, is to disconnect the printer from power...


Description

Reseat the Print Head to resolve the U051 / U052 error.

Solution

Errors displayed on the printer's LCD screen:

  • U051 Print head is not installed. Install the print head.
  • U052 The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head.
Reseat the Print Head:
  1. Make sure that the power is turned on, and open the Paper Output Tray gently
  2. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover), then hold it open with the Scanning Unit Support (A). (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
  3. Remove all the Ink Tanks in the following manner.
    1. Push the tab (B) and lift the ink tank to remove.
    2. Do not touch the Print Head Lock Lever (C) while removing the ink tanks.
  4. Once the ink tanks have been removed, raise the print head lock lever.
  5. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.




    Caution: Do not touch the print head nozzles <1> , electrical contacts <2>, or ink supply ports <3>. Doing so may cause printing problems.



    *Before proceeding to next step, check the carriage area for packing material, torn paper, etc. and remove if found
  6. Tilt the Print Head and set it in place. Lower the Print Head Lock Lever (E) completely.
  7. Insert ink tanks into the print head.
    1. Insert the front end of ink tank into the Print Head at a slant. Make sure that the position of the ink tank matches the label.
    2. Press the mark (Push) on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
      Make sure that the ink lamp lights up red.
  8. Lift the Scanning Unit (Cover) slightly to set the Scanning Unit Support back to its original position, and gently close the Scanning Unit (Cover).

    Caution: When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam fingers.

    Note: When the next printing begins, the print head cleaning will begin automatically.

Code U052


Dear dgthorpe,
This indicates that printhead of your printer faulty. Commonly this problem come with short circuitry problem in printhead so it may harm logic board and carriage unit too. I suggest you to try checking with another printhead first.
