Wiped the bar with a kleenex and there you go!! Like you instructed, all I did was wipe down the metal rod and the encoder strip. http://fileupster.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-dell.html

This mirror really helped to SEE what was going on back there.Anyway I have cleaned the rails, encoder strip , found the pen and still Hardware 0502.

Can you give any other suggestions?

I figured that I'd share my experience in the event anybody else runs across this issue, which was amusing enough to make me chuckle. 😉 Reply denise says: 2007-05-02 at 12:04 help. Press the Option button 10 times until Cartridges appears on the LED display. 2. It works.

I somebody has a more permanent solution, please post is here. Now about the paper feed problem?? Reply Andrea says: 2009-12-21 at 7:13 pm This worked!! http://fileupster.com/hardware-error/hardware-error-0502-lexmark.html i tried everything EVEN tapping it with small hammer..

No credit cards required. Reply lazarus says: 2007-12-20 at 3:46 am Thanks so much! So happy I didn't, thanks for this!! The error is now gone.

This has been going on for months! Disconnect the power cable from the back of the Lexmark X5100 / X6100 Series. 3. I tried and tried to get it back on with no success. It did eventually seem to ‘catch', but too a bit of time (and wiggling!).

Reply Pete says: 2006-06-26 at 10:12 pm I have a 6170, and for some reason, the power doesn't wirk anymore. In addition, I lube the guiderail for every eight hours use.(required). 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. fr Nous sommes désolés pour ce désagrément.

Reply Sara says: 2006-11-04 at 9:06 pm I am eternally grateful!! Thanks so much for keeping this site up and running - it has saved me and many others from unnecessarily buying new printers. I too found your site by googling Lexmark Hardware error 0502 after getting it twice…..I'm not one of those "go to the manufacturer first for good answers kind of people!" : This should take care of the printing problems…if not, then you may actually need a new printer.

I cleaned out the seats where the cartridges sit when the printer gets turned off. Reply John says: 2008-01-04 at 6:16 pm Printer was driving me crazy.This really works,THANKS A MILLION ! Thank you! Thanks so much!
