    Unhappy U052 error on Canon Pixma MP960

    My 5 year old Canon MP960 suddenly started to display U052 'type of print head is incorrect' message on the LCD screen.<br>I have tried all the various reset sequences I've seen on the web. The first 2 times the reset cleared the error.&nbsp; However after the third appearance of U052 I have been unable to clear it. <br>I've tried physically resetting the print head, cleaning the print head contacts pads as well as the spring loaded contacts all to no avail.&nbsp; Is this really a print head problem or an ink tank chip problem as has been suggested on some web posts?<br>Are there any button sequences which work when I I see 'Factory Mode 1' or 'Canon' on the LCD screen during my various reset attempts.<br>Also is there an software tool for this printer?<br>

    5 year old? By a new one!

    Practice makes perfect
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it

    If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself
