Reply Lupatrian says: 2007-03-06 at 3:12 pm I went around and around with my parents' printer, trying to fix this problem. Hope this helps someone out there. I have tried everything under the sun and finally stumbled onto your website and wiping the silver rod with a paper towel does the trick alright. I've been having this problem and it is getting worse each time.

I was about to throw the printer in the garbage! You have saved me a lot of time, money and bad language. says: 2006-03-29 at 10:05 pm hey guys. (if anyone is still here) if any of you took the time time to mess with the encoder strip, how didi you get it I then used my right hand to push the thin metal strip with the hook towards the encoder strip and eventually got it hooked on.

Thank you! Reply e says: 2007-11-05 at 4:33 pm i cleaned the rod and it worked! Now the issue is probably more a sensor or something is NG.The print head slams into the side and doesn't move gracefully. does anyone know of any instructions on how to put the encoder strip back in place (it is completely out now).

I was about to solve the problem with defenestration when I googled and got this website. Thank you, thank you. It could also be caused due to the coating on the metal rod in which the cartridges travel. I went to the Dell site and got no help.

AND I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE TO DO AND SOME. Brother MFC-J470DW Printer wont let me print.? Agent Is Typing... Reply Tommi Campbell says: 2007-09-17 at 2:52 am I cleaned the bar and the clear strip and I am still getting the 0502 message.

Reply Amy says: 2008-01-28 at 6:23 pm After 2 months I have finally fixed my printer and wanted to offer some insight on how I got the encoder strip back on Sure enough there was a piece of foam tape covering the slot located on the back center of the cartridge carrier.

Thanks "Clem"! we thought the damn thing was history, but working fine again now i've wiped the rod!! Reply Pb&J says: 2010-01-10 at 9:40 pm OMG U AWSOME tank you i was saved from buying another printer Reply Drust77 says: 2010-01-11 at 3:57 am Works great "after" putting encoding check over here K Reply Amy says: 2007-11-30 at 9:26 pm Did anyone figure out how to get the encoder strip back on their printer.

Reply Geert, this is what real troubleshooting is about says: 2009-01-21 at 10:07 am Thank you guys! I had, however, to turn on the printer while the cover was open, in order to get the cartridges to go in the middle, so I could clean the left side Reply Syan says: 2008-03-16 at 11:48 am Hi, I encountered the same problem where i got “Hardware Error 0502” on the LCD display few weeks ago.

Wipe it down with a soft cloth gently, then slide the cartriges all the way to the right, and repeat this process.

We use data about you for a number of purposes explained in the links below. I thought this was the easy part and after 2 hours of no luck I refered back to WSnipes and tried to feel for the foam tape he spoke of. Thanks very much for sharing this info. 🙂 Reply topaz 46 says: 2008-07-14 at 3:37 pm thanx for the tip…worked to a degree! Reply Nuno S.
