Hardware error 0502 from A dell 940

Here is how to fix error 502.


ยป 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.

Service error 5100

5100 means the carriage is not moving properly, or there is grease or ink on the encoder strip The encoder strip is the clear strip with black lines behind the carriage that runs all the way across the printer. You can clean the strip with a Q-tip just damp with water.
