My printer has a error message that says HARDWARE ERROR 0502. It will not print. My mother was trying to print photos at the time. Please help so I can do my homework! Thank you.

this is usually cause by a twisted encoder strip, or a bad system board. These are typically in warenty from lexmark. Look for a plastic strip behind the carrier and play with it a bit.

Take a lightly damp cloth and wipe down the compartment where the ink cartriges are. I was getting a 0502 every second page and I haven't had any since cleaning.

Go to http://www.lexmark.com. Click on the tab that says "downloads." You will be prompted to put in what type of printer it is (x6150, etc.) You can download the drivers from there.

you have to go into lex mrk on your desk top a reconfigure and tell it it has a new ink cartridge then after that lift up open the scanner wipe the little tape down with a damp cloth sometimes the new ink cartridge and old tape build up ink

The encoder strip on my Lexmark x6170 came off. on one end it has F with an arrow pointing downwards and the other end has a D. I tried the obvious way of putting the F facing forward and the arrow down but it still doesn't work. Does anybody know or have a picture of how it should go on there? Many thanks. Martin429

I have a LEXMARK X6170 model of which I am extremely proud of. I am experiencing quite a bit of problem with my old faithful! I am now sitting with a problem - after scanning a document and the also a picture, my printer refuses to print. This is from a scanning situation. If I want to print directly to make copies, then 'she' also refuses to print. The ERROR CODE that comes up is: HARDWARE - ERROR 0502.
Please advise me what to do so that I can continue to enjoy my printer.
Awaiting your reply with bated breath and full of hope.

Thanks Phillip. Cape Town South Africa.

Buy a new brand of printer. Simply Lexmark has so MANY problems, that you may as well spring a couple extra bucks for a better made printer and be done with it. Less hassle and better quality.

My lexmark x6100 printer has a message that says "Unlock Scanner then press power" and I donot know how to unlock the scanner. When I try to print, the PC is reading that the printer is not turned on when the power is clearly on but has the above message about the scanner. What do I do?

Thank you

That means that the encoding strip is dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced if scratched like mine. I bought my x6170 printer for $10 at an auction and $28 for a black cartridge. I loved it because it was my first "All-in-one" printer and I needed one that scanned. My 2 year old reached in and grabbed the encoding strip and that was that. I spent $20 on an almost new Dell printer and it didn't scan and later found out that Lexmark makes the printers for Dell. Now I use it as a copy and print machine. I have tried to find a new encoding strip but they wanted $45 + s&h. I didn't think it was woth it. Good luck!


Downloads are not working! by lina.561 (10/16/09 11:46 AM) reply + / -
I have X6170 I hooked the USB cable in the computer...I have no disk so I downloaded the software form the Lexmark website.
I installed the software and also went into the settings on my computer and added this printer. I have it plugged in while doing all this. I cannot get this printer to work at all. its not communicating with my computer. Any advise?
Thanks

Help! My printer says that its printing documents. The paper goes through with ease as though its printing, however, the paper is blank when it comes out. What can I do?

Is it the same issue even when making a copy using the buttons on the operator panel? If so, try reseating the cartridges on the printer. If copying is ok, then most probably it's a software issue. Uninstall the Lexmark sofware from your computer. To reinstall, I suggest you use the driver from the Lexmark website.

Everything for the printer seems to have installed properly but it still will not print. It often gives me a message telling me that its not connected to the right USB port even though Ive tried them all.. any suggestions?

Open the main cavity. Underneath the lid there is a red lever. Push it to unlock it. That is the scanner lock.
