Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Keep getting occasional Error 0502 problems caused by Cartridge Stalls. Tried to ensure the Encoder Strip is properly located but it is difficult and impossible to see behind the cartride carrier.
I have had this problem "Hardware Error 0502" which kept getting worse until I could not print any more. So I open the cartridge cover & removed both good cartridges, pushed the cartridge carrier fully to the right hand side & with one slightly damp cloth, a dry cloth & a pair of latex gloves (as the ink stains your skin) I first carfully cleaned the guey head like things on the bottom inside the printer on the left hand side. I removed a load of hard & soft gue with the damp cloth then finished with the dry cloth. Next I cleaned the bottom track aswell, moved the cartriage carrier fully to the left hand side to clean the rest of the bottom track. I then re-installed both cartriages & the printer is now perfect again!

You have to use oil (olive oil) or petroleum jelly and wipe, using a paper towel, the horizontal silver bar that the cartridge carriage rides across. The ink builds up on this, making it difficult for the carriage to slide across. This works for me every time, and you'll notice a lot of ink on your paper towel!

Yeah...you'll have to move the carriage back and forth to see it and wipe it with a damp cloth.
