CR motor encoder check error

CR Motor is DC motor with brushes for driving the carriage. Controlled by CR linear encoder and CR linear encoder sensor. So, check the encoder. It may be dirty or some lines missing. If the encoder OK, other possibility is the sensor.

Hardware error 0502 from A dell 940

Here is how to fix error 502.


» Reposition the Encoder Strip on the A940 All-In-One Printer
To reposition the encoder strip, perform the following steps:
  1. Remove the power cord from the unit.
  2. Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located.
  3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.

Figure 1: Out-of-position encoder strip

  1. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
  2. Using your index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
new_note.jpg Note: There is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into, which is located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

While working with the encoder strip, check it for dust or any unclean spots. If any detected, try to clean the strip by wiping it gently with clean cloth.
  1. Gently press the strip first to the rear and then forward to ensure that it is seated correctly.
  2. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right to check the positioning of the encoder strip.

Figure 2: Correctly seated encoder strip

new_note.jpg Note: If the encoder strip moves at all, it has NOT been repositioned correctly.

  1. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the lid to the unit.
  2. Re-connect the power supply to the All-In-One.
  3. Press the Power button. If the encoder strip was re-seated correctly, the Hardware Error: 502 code will not appear.

Error code 5100

Error code 5100 indicates that Carriage Return (CR) error occurs. This error rise when carriage unit (the part that function as cartridge housing) does not move properly. Here are some possibilities of the problem:
  1. Carriage unit is faulty so that it cannot 'read' film timing **** strip (film encoder) properly
  2. Film encoder is dirty. Film encoder functions as a guide for carriage unit to move to the correct position it should be. Carriage unit 'read' the encoder by flashing a light from a LED. Dirty encoder sometimes make the light direction is deviated.
  3. Foreign material blocking carriage unit path. Please check inside the printer and remove it if any.

If carriage unit is faulty, you need bring the printer to the service center to get part replacement. For dirty film encoder,sometimes you can still clean it by using moistened cloth. I hope this will HELP you. Thanks.

Any one help my brother display error 48, init unable 48, what are the things that i have to do?

There are several issues that pertain to this code, including a service update. If your printer is still under warranty – visit your local ASC, find one here, this issue is covered! First off, the Service Update, the encoder strip needs to be cleaned with a lint free cloth. The encoder strip is responsible for relaying the position of the print head to the main pcb. If the encoder strip gets dirty, many different problems can occur. The encoder strip is exposed, which allows grease, paper dust, finger prints, ink, etc. to get onto the encoder strip. (The white strip when you lift the scanner cover)
If the machine still errors, the encoder strip needs to be replaced – Part Number LS4467001
If the machine still errors, replace the carriage PCB assembly – Part Number LS6543001
If the machine still errors, replace the Printhead – Part Number LK3211001
If the machine still errors, replace the Main PCB assembly – Part Number LT0284011
