Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Was putting in a new black cartridge......and when I shut the lid....got this error? says "no black cartridge" hardware error 0502...any thoughts?
tried to open up and re-install the black cartridge but the toners are way over the the left and won't let me move them back to the center where I can work with them.

Thecartriges run on a steel shaft and respond to resistence. Take a kleenex and clean th shaft. Then lubricate it with WD40 or some other lubricant. The 0502 error will go away. The Clay Works firstname.lastname@example.org

The cleaning of the bar did the trick, thanks guys

Wipe the silver bar down w/alcohol! It worked for me; slides just like it is supposed to. It was icky! Also, when the printer doesn't detect the cartridge, it maybe the cartridge is defective, even if it is new. I had that w/my lexmark, which is much the same. I checked it w/an old cartridge & it did acknowledge it. So, another trip to Walmart, & it was all good. Just a bad cartridge....

I tried "cleaning the ink cartridge nozzles". Press Options until Cartridges displays > Press + until Clean displays> Press Select. I had to do it twice. Then I took a soft wet rag and ran it across the metal bar that the cartridges slide on. So far it has worked.
