Fromjim describes taking things apart. This often does not correct the issue. Take it apart, when apart clean the head area .... CLEANING is the thing that must be done as there is ink build up. That's why I used 91% Ethyl alchohol. IT WORKS now many months later after 1st doing this. Note: the print is not perfect but very usable
I am having the same problem U052 error with my mx892 printer. I want to try cleaning print head with rubbing alcohol. Can you give me the exact instructions on how to do this? Thank you so much in advance for any help or guidance you can offer.
p.s. This problem started a few days ago with the dreaded B200 error, which I also had last year and had to research for a week and almost junked out my 1.5 year old $400 printer, but I finally got it going again with an obscure fix
see my previous posts for those asking how to. Simply remove inks...get 91% alchohol for Walmart. I like it because it evaporates at a moderate rate...not too fast.. Soak the ink head in GLASS (not plastic) with it. The alcohol will not damage the head as other stronger petroleums can. Use as little as possible each soaking because will need to repeat again and again. Likely use total about 1/2 a 16oz. bottle.... let dry a few hours after final. You can use Clean compressed air to speed things up to blow things out.. Quality contacts are gold plated. Not sure if these are that quality... Gold does not tarnish or oxidize, but still inspect them....can't hurt. The previous post for G&G is also helpful info.
Buy a non Canon printer, they are not going to help anyone, they are too powerful and don't think they need us or our purchases, too bad, they have wonderful products, you just can't trust the company.
God bless you and help Canon change
I got this after installing new ink - it worked just a bit and then when I turned printer off and on, got this msg. I took out cartridges and head, put them back in, and no change.
