This is where it's tricky because it seemed as if the factory lightly melted a few joints just so you'd break it if you tried to take it apart.

Clicking Here I love you!
Even the people on the help line weren't able to help. NOTE: If this does not resolve the problem replace your cartridges. After I wiped the metal bar, the 502 error problem was cured. Out of desperation I found your solution.
Someone help me! http://blog.forret.com/2006/02/11/lexmark-printers-with-hardware-error-0502/ I just bought this thing. I was about to throw the freakin' thing in the trash. My bad....Dell A960 printer?
Reply Chrisco says: 2006-11-12 at 11:57 am Hey, thanks for posting this fix, it really worked for my Lexmark X6170. http://jennysbookreview.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark-x6150.php Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error. Really appreciate the tip - it was a great help. Reply Donnie says: 2007-02-10 at 12:51 am Does anyine know how to get the strip back in on a Dell 940?

THE RED DOES NOT WORK!Any ideas beside buying a new printer? Any ideas.???? Works like new again now.
Your little tip worked perfectly. Upon powering the unit, i got the famous "Hardware Error 0502". It kept getting stuck when in the far left position but slid easily across the rest of the bar. Instead of waiting a month and/or replacing my ink, I fixed it in the first 8 hours . 😉 Reply Dewey Cavender says: 2007-01-12 at 4:34 pm Thanks worked just like

Reply James Ostick says: 2008-04-10 at 1:04 pm What a super web site… I was about to ask my X5150 to pick a window to be thrown through. So it's still getting the boot for an all in one photoprinter whose cartridges are cheaper. 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. Thanks!
That just seemed to easy. Started when I innocently installed a new black cartridge …. Thanks. I had the 502 error -- did the cleaning and now have the encoder strip problem.
Can some one explain where I have to hook the ends to? Please upload a file larger than 100x100 pixels We are experiencing some problems, please try again. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the Lexmark X5100 / X6100 Series. 3. Wouldn´t it be nice you to share the "easy way" to get it back on?
