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

PuppyLove,  Please give me a hint as to at what point in the thread they changed their method of dealing with this.  I do not have the time to read the rest of the posts.

Neither do most of us, but that isn't necessary. You can see by the last few pages no one is getting any help whatsoever and posts are being deleted often. Only one or two people in the very very beginning ever got any response or help.

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

I had already read the last 30 or so and had seen that it appeared they had changed their response from trying to help to basically saying we will give you a minimal discount on another product.  I, for one, would never buy another Canon printer if that was the best they could do.

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

I might add that I have always purchased the correct canon ink wells and never ever bought substitutes. And I do not print often at all it is more the photocopier on the printer that I use. Hence I find the print error even more puzzling. So I can't figure out why this error started. I just cannot get rid of the error

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

So here is the response I received from Canon.

 

Thank you for contacting Canon product support. I understand that the PIXMA MX892 is experiencing a U052 error. I'm eager to help you correct this problem.

 

The U052 error indicates that the printer cannot communicate with the print head. I see that you've already reseated the print head. As the error persists, the MX892 will require service.

Like many others in the hundreds of postings above, you will find that the special price they offer you can be easily beaten at many retailers. This illustrates just how much Canon cares about their reputation.
Always hate to see corporate ripoffs by companies we used to trust.
