u052 error code on mg5320

I am getting an error code of u052 on my mg5320 printer. I last printed successfully about a week ago. Today I changed the ink cartridge and am now getting error code U052 regarding the printerhead. I have verified that the ink cartridge is the correct model for this printer and verified it is installed correctly. I have taken all the ink cartridges and the printerhead out and re-installed. None of these steps have re-set the error code. Please advice what to do next.

Hi pemerton,


Because the error still appears even after reseating the ink tanks and printhead, your PIXMA MG5320 would require service.


You are eligible for Canon's Upgrade Program.  This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service, or for some reason are incompatible with a new or upgraded system.  This option allows you a one-time opportunity to purchase a replacement product, discounted from the list price.

Re: u052 error code on mg5320

I have had the exact same problem that 'pemerton' reported on 9-6-19 with error code U052. Received the error in between printing jobs. Have reinserted cartridges and printer head and error still shows. Is there a resolution to this? Really like this printer and hoping not to replace.  Please advise. Thank you.
