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

I tried all the recommended "fixes" but nothing worked. Just bought new ink cartridges a week before it quit! Went out and bought an HP. You can bet I will let people know of my experience it Canon doesn't make this right.

I believe that all the good honest people here simply seek the truth, Canon, a huge modern company with great wealth and expertise has to know the reason for U052 error message and they want and deserve to know the reason.  Not only that, they deserve a fix that can get these wonderful printers working again.  So once again I ask Canon to do the right thing, Please give the good and honest people access to a fix that will not only give us faith in Canon but give us the fine printer we paid for.

 

God bless

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

I got the Dreaded U052 error last month, after owning my MG 5320 printer a year and 1 month. I did not use it often only went through 3 sets of ink . I loved the printer but this is just wrong. Is there anyway to fix this without ordering a new printer head as they are almost as expensive as the printer was.

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

I filed the form but would still like to know if and when a fix might become available. I too have ink to sell if I can't use it! Be understanding of those who are new to the community and are having this problem. It took me a while to locate this thread and then figure out how to find the most current message. I wonder if Canon sent out information to registered users who pruchased one of the affected printers? If not that should have been one of the settlement requirements.

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

You can take a gamble and purchase a new print head from Canon with the settlement $$$ you get. The price is about $50.00.

The catch is that Tech Support does NOT guarantee that the replacement will fix it. There are some Youtube instruction videos on cleaning out the old Print Head. But that's no guarantee either.
