Come on Canon, wake up before it's too late. Sooner or later you are going to have to answer for this. Don't say you were not warrned. I'll be watching.

I've had this problem for some time and I was ready to throw my MP610 to the trash (not done that yet because I have a lot of ink cartridges) until I found this solution:
This might sound silly but it worked for me, at least for today...
Hope it helps you guys.

I got the same error on my barely used Pixma MG5350, tried everything to no avail.
I can't even scan. Why in the name of the printer gods can't I scan if there's an error with the print head?
'Planned obsolescence' is the cause for this and other errors, google it.
So I took the advice of another post here: I got another printer, an Epson.
As a friendly advice to all who stumble here, same as the one I give to everyone else: stay away from Canon printers and don't think that if you get a more expensive one you'll be better off.

I can confirm packedmytowel42's suggestion of cleaning the printhead worked on my 8 year old MP600 printer. Many thanks for posting this solution the answer and link to the helpful youtube video.

I have tried everything suggested on this forum (plus the video re washing the print head, which I did) and still get the U052 message. I am disconsolate--I loved this printer! I would be glad to hear of any good, solid, basic printer that anyone has used for some time with no difficulties! I have researched and researched, and they ALL seem to have plenty of "poor" and "bad" type ratings..... :-(
