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

You're fortunate, most of programmed self destructi happens well after the warranty is expired.

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

The original one-year warranty expired in July. The problem happened one month later, in August. The Visa extended warranty kicked in after that. It simply doubles the original warranty, whatever that is.

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

That's great, at least Visa honors their customers, I have used this same feature in the past but my printer went bad 3 years after the purchase, so I wouldn't qualify for the extera warranty, they double the warranty upto one extra year, so after two years have passed I am out of warranty, right?  Canon warranty is one year, Visa one year.  Happy you could collect, Praise the Lord

 

Your not that far from me, Charlo NB, small world.

 

God bless

My MX922 did this after exactly one year and one month!

 

I had purchased it with my Visa card that doubles the warranty period, so I filed a claim. 

 

Yesterday, I received a cheque for $177., the full price that I had paid for it.

 

Guess  what I'm buying with it? NOT a Canon printer, that's for sure!

It's my understanding that Visa will double the warranty, whatever it is. For instance, my coffee machine had a two-year warranty and that became four years.

Thanks Gina, I sure will check that out, not sure what the Canon warrant is on an MX892, not even sure I registered it with Canon. 

 

God bless

The Visa card that I have bears a fee of $99 a year, and that includes an auto club membership and travel insurance as well as the extended warranty benefit, but I also get 1% back on all my purchases, so at the very least it pays for itself. (And I once had my car towed four times in the same year!)

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

Thanks for the info, nice to have those features, mine is a Scotiabank visa, no fee, 1 & 2% back depending on items, glad to hear you didn't have to pay to have your car towed, but four times in one year, think I'd trade it in, just kidding.

Take care

God bless

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

Sadly my Canon MG5520 printer stopped printing right in the middle of an important project and the dreaded message was... you guessed it, "Wrong Printhead".

 

I tried everything and so far no luck. I am truly disappointed by finding that I am not alone. I want quality , not disposable.

Our world needs to be cleaned up, not junked up with discarded items that a company has decided not to stand behind.
