The Web is a wonderful place indeed. Found your blog and cleaned the metal rod and Presto! MSnipes said that the left side contains the F and the Right side is the one marked D. Works great!! http://indowebglobal.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark.html
Wird geladen... The Lexmark support site will let you power off, remove the power cord for 30 seconds (!!), take out the cartridges and fiddle with some encoder strip. I have had the 0502 hardware error for the past two weeks on my Dell A960. What I didn't understand from that description is that the wire is really a sensitive spring steel wire, with what looks like a small "bump" in the middle of the side
Reply Min says: 2007-03-26 at 1:58 am Thank you mucho. the hardware 0502 error was driving us crazy.My dad was ready to do away with the machine and buy a better unit. Reply Dan says: 2006-11-08 at 12:20 am I was just about to toss it out and decided to google the question.
thx Reply DW says: 2006-11-20 at 2:29 pm Tried the paper towel trick on my Dell A10 A960 getting that error code. Credentials confirmed by a Fortune 500 verification firm. Reply Andrea says: 2009-12-21 at 7:13 pm This worked!! I guess its time for a new all in one.
THE RED DOES NOT WORK!Any ideas beside buying a new printer? Love that I keep finding instructions online to keep this beast going and going. - Nitecat Hi MattThanks for your instructions - a bit beyond a Grandma but fortunately my son I can't even tell you how many resources I've wasted on this problem. http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=SO2723 Reply karen says: 2007-12-23 at 1:05 am THANKS!!!
I love you! I have the same lexmark printer (6170). Reply Eva says: 2008-11-22 at 12:39 am Hey, I was having the same problem that wiping the bar wasn't clearing my 0502, and I dislodged the strip, but fiddled until it Reply mcdowalr says: 2008-12-01 at 12:35 pm Tried cleaning the rod etc, replaced catridges, will copy and scan but when I test print only goes to about 40% and then fails?
Gotta love the internet community. http://fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/34491 If my answer did not work please let me know instead of giving negative feedback. So thanks for the advise! Great, and thank you so much for the useful tip Reply Carol says: 2006-11-12 at 5:40 am I was also about to throw my 6180 out.
It seems that a "no ink" error trumps 0502, and makes the machine forget it was trying to drive you mad. http://indowebglobal.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-dell-printer.html I cleaned the rod and it completely worked. Reply Michelle M says: 2007-12-19 at 4:55 pm You all sooo rock!!! Il ya eu une erreur à l'application.
Now I can use my printer again! Melde dich an, um dieses Video zur Playlist "Später ansehen" hinzuzufügen. Wiped the printer bar with a tissue. http://indowebglobal.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark-x6150.html In fact, I was becoming so frustrated with bankrupt results that I was literally going to chuck the printer out the window and go buy a new one.
After I wiped the metal bar, the 502 error problem was cured. This worked great on my Lexmark X6170. I have replaced the cartdidge, cleaned the rod.
Thank you! You're going to push and pop stuff and it sounds like your breaking it and you may just do that:0) UNPLUG IT AND REMOVE AC POWER BLOCK1) Remove scanner cover- it I cleaned the rod, strip, and other parts of the unit, lubricated, slid the strip through the sensor and reconnected it and re-assembled the unit. Sure enough there was a piece of foam tape covering the slot located on the back center of the cartridge carrier.
Cheers Reply Beth says: 2007-02-07 at 11:49 pm Thank you! I moved the carriage to the centre, removed the print cartridges, and wiggled the plastic strip as described on the Lexmark support website. A big thank-you to Clem, Google and the wisdom of crowds! http://indowebglobal.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark-x6100.html Not only did the lube pull A LOOOOOT more residue off, it also stopped the squeaking.
But it so hard to put it somewhere, where you can't even see. Mine was positioned with the F and an arrow pointing down on the left side, and the D on the right side. Works like new again now. My printer is old...like 2001....and so is the Dell.
The printer just started up again with the "hardware error 0502"; good thing I'd bookmarked this site! In order to attach the right side of the strip, the side with a D on it, I had to flip my printer on it's back so that I was able In conclusion, i would say, this error can be caused by different scenario. Is there a way of fixing this, or do I need to look for a new printer?
