Re: Getting U052 (type of printhead incorrect) on my Pixma MP610 printer).

I have installed a QY6-0080 Printhead in my Canpn Pixma MG5350 printer. I get the message UO52 The type of printhead is incorrect. Install the correct printhead.

What do I do?

Re: Getting U052 (type of printhead incorrect) on my Pixma MP610 printer).

Did you get the message U052 and then buy a new print head, and still get the same message?

I have a MX715. Great printer. Overseas for some time. Came back, and got the U052 error.

Cleaned the print head many times but still got the error.  Tried all sorts of combinations to reset.  I once got error code 6502 which was encouraging.  but now only U052.

I removed the print head and got U051, no print head.

Installed the printhead with no cartridges and got U052.

Added the cartridges still got U052.

I'll reluctantly buy a new printhead, but only if I know it will solve the problem.

 

Any thoughts?

Hi, has anyone discovered the fix for this. I'm about to throw my Canon Pixma MP610 away due to not being able to fix this problem.

Re: Getting U052 (type of printhead incorrect) on my Pixma MP610 printer).

Seems to me there is no unique solution to this absurd and unacceptable situation. I got hit by this today on my MG5250. Cleaned the print head carefully with tissue and cotton buds to remove obvious ink, reassembled, and it looked fine when I closed the cover (i.e. no U052). But when I tried to send a file for printing, back came the U052. So, repeated the procedure, but this time after reassembling I did a nozzle pattern print before attempting to send a file over: the pattern print worked fine, and so then did printing the file...

 

This worked for me, but, obviously, is not going to be a solution for everyone. If it happens again and is unfixable, it's bye-bye Canon.

I have a Canon Pixma 610. Ser. No: AAXG37782. I  am having the same problem as all of the other posters on this issue         ( Wont print Black ). when I contacted Canon Support I was told that  " There Is No Such Error Code as Wrong Print Head Fitted". I have read all of the posts on here but alas NONE of them work. I cannot even by-pass the problem. To make matters worse, I have just taken delivery of a New Stock of Ink Cartridges,  !!!!!!!!!!!!.
