Re: Call to Arms for the dreaded U052 Wrong Printhead Error

There is nothing you can do thousands of ex canon printer customers have tried. It's planned obsolesence by canon.

Re: Call to Arms for the dreaded U052 Wrong Printhead Error

Just got U052 on my MP 610.  Was working fine just before that, then tried to copy something and got printhead error.  Removed cartridges and printhead, turned off and uplugged printer for over 30 minutes in hopes printer would thing a new printhead was being installed.  Turned power back on, reinstalled printhead and cartridges but same error.  What now?  Will new printhead take care of this error?

No, it will not fix the error. It hasn't worked for lots of other people who have posted earlier in this thread. It's just another con trick from Canon.

Most of my posts get deleted because Canon doesn't like people stating the truth about their little game.

Re: Call to Arms for the dreaded U052 Wrong Printhead Error

It's kind of strange that over the past few months is when all of us starting having this issue. I still say it's a firmware glitch. My printhead works in my neighbors MP560. My neighbors only use it as a stand alone copier, it's never been connected to a computer or wifi setup. So it had no chance for a firmware update, and it's working fine when everyone else's that's connected to the internet is giving the error. Need to find a master reset to rid of all the firmware updates.

Re: Call to Arms for the dreaded U052 Wrong Printhead Error

This is a repeat of my earlier comment that was removed by canon. The offline use of a printer that is not affected by the U052 programmed dysfunction instruction by canon proves tha case of malicious intent. Go ahead canon remove this one too. We have all the records for the case.u

Re: Call to Arms for the dreaded U052 Wrong Printhead Error

Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order. They replaced my printer for free with a newer one. After the warrantee and unit was no longer available. Why would they go to that expense if it was just faulty firmware or printhead if there was not some sort of guilt there.
