Question about Canon Pixma MG5220 InkJet Printer
Were you aware of the Canon printer class action suit?
Canon USA Inc Consumer Class Action and
"...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."

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.

my 1 yr old MX855 got the U052 message after I replaced 2 cartridges.
Called Canon Support. They said this has nothing to do with the cartridges.
Printhead is damaged or not set right. He walked me through resetting it.Open lid, remove cartridges, lift gray lever and pop it open to the top. Remove black plastic box which holds cartridges. Inspect bottom print head. If shiny and clean, re-insert it. Lower grey lever which is spring loaded. When it snaps down it holds printhead in place. This worked for me.
