Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
The error code U052 is a printhead temperature sensor error.
This usually results due to a faulty printhead or a failing sensor which needs service or replacement of faulty parts.
However, you may try the below intermediate steps
turn off the unit....unplug the power cablenow remove the cartridge...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forthalso clean the rail against which the assembly slides with a tissue ensuring that there is no ink residue on itclean the golden contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcohol
also reseat the printhead.
turn on unit and check
if still the issue repeats then the unit would need service as it could be either a faulty printhead or a sensor failing.
in such a case if unit is within warranty please get it serviced through canon else take a service estimate cost from a local repair store as in case its a printhead failure you may get it replaced. however, in case its a sensor failure, the repair might be costly and you may consider going in for a new unit
