I'm not sure what's wrong with it because it was just printing fine!


It was printing good then suddenly it wouldn't print and showed error U052 - That the printer head is incorrect?!?


All of the printer cartridges are lighting up and the rollers still sound like their working, but it won't even let me do a cleaning or alignment, it's like the error is froze on the printer screen!


Is there anyway I can fix this, because we're on a very tight budget right now....Any help would be highly appreciated!

The following link may contain your solution :




I have owned two or three Canon printers, are you sure the different tanks are lighting up ?  In my experience they only do this when they are empty, but it is unlikely you would run out of all the inks at the same time.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
