Thank your for your comprehension… Reply the backwards man says: 2007-04-19 at 2:35 am After powering up the X5150 that was given to me because it wasn't working, the 0502 error Apparently, that's what was causing my 0502 error because that last cleaning seemed to do the trick. I recently found a A960 in a garbage dumpster close to where i live…i don't usually pickup garbage but it was neatly packed in an HP box and was in really I popped it open again and put some lubricant on the kleenex and wiped the rail down again.
I've printed off a 2 page document, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problem is resolved! Perform the hardware test without cartridges first and then with both cartridges. I appreciate your detailed response. http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=SO2723 Es gab einen Fehler bei der Anwendung.
Cleaning it works, my hat off to you Sir! CLEAN the see-thru tape that is connected to the carriers using a dry cloth, from left to right in one direction. (careful, it is delicate, clean both sides).13. Reconnect the power cable and switch the printer on again. 11. Thanks Reply RomaineG says: 2010-02-21 at 9:54 pm Have had the all in one for several years.
I slid the cartridge back and forth trying to feel where resistance might be. http://blog.forret.com/2006/02/11/lexmark-printers-with-hardware-error-0502/ I love you! My left hand held the strip and went into the printer where you put the cartridges in. I have a P4350 Lexmark.
Hardware Error 0502 on LCD Display Check the encoder strip on the printer. (This is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge carrier.) Do navigate here This 30-second fix has saved some expensive window glass! Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located. 3. It worked perfectly.
The next, it doesn't. Lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary. 9. Clean the encoder strip with an alcohol swab GENTLY…the encoder strip is attached on a spring system on one end and to a metal tab on the other. http://indowebglobal.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark-x6150.html So I can't even tell if the cleaning did the job on the 502 error.
Funny how everyone on here was about to throw it out - I told my wife the same thing - "If these new cartridges don't work, I'm throwing the damn thing This door pops off. Reply Chris Nikander says: 2008-11-06 at 10:43 am Yes it really worked.
Thanks a million. Soulution #3 at this site shows how…..http://www.fixya.com/support/t114419-error_0502 Its not really hard to do. I cleaned the metal rod with a kleenex as suggested, but think I've accidentally done something in the process! Anyway THANK YOU!!!

Printer was down for a long time. Thank you! I went to the Dell site and got no help. thank you so much for posting.
I had noticed that I couldn't print on fast mode but it worked OK on slower modes. Is there a way of fixing this, or do I need to look for a new printer? I have tried just about every which way but it still crashes on power on. Thanks so much…YOU DA M ?
