Dell aio printer a940

I just got this printer and every time I turn it on it gives me this error "hardware error 0502" What can I do to fix this?
Did you ever find out what this error means? Mine prints half of a page and then stops and flashes "hardware error 0502

My printer has the same problem as yours -- did you ever get a response? If so, I would really appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks! - Anonymous
I have the same problem: error message 0502 no matter how many times I adjust the cartridge. Did you find a solution? Thanks

I suspect some problem with carriage movement. Firstly, check and clean encoder strip. If that doesn't help, lubricate carriage rail. It also can be dirtied encoder strip sensor in carriage.

My encoder strip can completly off. How can I take my Dell A940 apart to get to where I connect the strip again?
