    I also am getting Hardware error 0502. Paper will not feed, after a couple of clicks goes in crooked. Looks like a common problem from the internet research I have been doing. Not an old problem, just one many of us hit this Spring. Since this came up this week, I have not been able to print a single word.

Hardware error 0502


Hi,
Problem:The Shiny Silver bar that your Print Cartridges glide back and forth on is the problem.When the motor that moves the cartridges left and right have too much resistance, you get this error code 0502. Solution: Take some kleenex, and with power unplugged, clean the bar very well. Then Spray some WD-40 on a Kleenex, and lubricate the shaft. Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

Hardware error code 0502 how to solve this



Hi there

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.
Myself I would put a little bit of oil after on a cloth and wipe along the bar.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
