(if anyone is still here) if any of you took the time time to mess with the encoder strip, how didi you get it They said to just trash the printer when this did the trick!
With a piece of tissue or a small artists brush…very lightly lubricate the steel rod and manually move the cartridge carrier back and forth 3 or 4 times applying a light http://blog.forret.com/2006/02/11/lexmark-printers-with-hardware-error-0502/ Disconnect the power cable from the back of the Lexmark X5100 / X6100 Series. 3.

The error is now gone. I am not sure if it makes any difference at all which way it goes in. Reply John says: 2007-09-26 at 2:52 am I tried cleaning both the rail and the encoder strip and still have the 0502 error.

Next, gently press down on the encoder strip with one finger on each side of the carrier. Press the + button 4 times until Self test appears on the LED Display. 3. I started looking more in depth into the problem and noticed that a fishing hook was under something making the cartridges not go all the way across the rod!! navigate here Thank you!!
While it was unplugged I again cleaned the encoder strip with a soft clean cloth. To your right, it's small and faint, but it should read "A-03" going in an upward direction. Many thanks. Thank you!
I thought I was gonna spend a day trying to fix this. I was able to get help from you via a google search. I have a Dell all in one and just recently started experiencing this problem. The first time I found the incredibly involved Lexmark site instructions and was about to throw the machine out.
says: 2007-12-16 at 10:35 pm you have just saved my printer life 😀 I was about to throw it of the window …. It worked perfectly. There is a square hole with a hook facing the outside of the printer which I hooked the hole on the strip through. I placed my right hand through the bottom of the printer where printed pages come out of it.
