Hardware Error: 0502. On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.


This works! Clean the rod with a paper towel. The towel will be black (ink residu, presumably), but there you go printing to your heart’s desire again.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

There is a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem should go away. Let me know.

Printer displays hardware error 0502 wont print " HELP "


The 0502 error can have any of four possible causes:
- A faulty black/photo cartridge
- A faulty color photo cartridge
- A dirty encoder strip
- The encoder strip being out of position
.... most of the time, it's the encoder strip that is giving the problem..

This works! Clean the ****** with a paper towel (another page talks about re-lubricating the thing, but that was not necessary in my case). The towel will be black (ink residu, presumably), but there you go printing to your heart’s desire again.
