My Lexmark X6170 does not recognize new color cartridge (83)


This may be a problem with your ink cartridge connection.
Take out the cartridge, and you'll see copper tabs that are connection points for your printer. Clean those connection points off with a cotton cloth, maybe wetted just barely.
The place that you put the cartridge in the printer has the same copper tabs that the cartridge has. Clean those as well.
Put the ink cartridge back in and see if it is detected.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My Lexmark X6170 won't print or partially prints e-mail. Also it won't copy in black but will copy in color? When this happens I get the 0502 error message. Any idea as to what is wrong and how to...


The 0502 error code indicates either a faulty cartridge is detected or the encoder strip (transparent strip) is dislodged from its position. Refer to this article in the Lexmark website on Error 0502 on the Lexmark X6150/X6170 Printer LCD Display to determine and resolve the problem. Thanks.

The error is telling you that the color or black cartridge is missing. It's not recognizing one of your cartridges, most probably the new black cartridge. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on what to do with that problem. http://bit.ly/bkCWPF

Error 50 c


  1. Power off your printer.
  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.
  3. Turn the printer on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy.
  4. Remove the color print cartridge.
  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.
  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.
  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.
  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.
Hope this helps.
  1. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  2. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.

Error Code???


The 0502 error can be caused by four different issues:
    1. A contaminated encoder strip
    2. An unseated encoder strip
    3. A faulty black/photo cartridge
    4. A faulty color cartridge
Your best look see at the problem would be www.lexmark.com >technical support> Model name >FAQs

Error C50 on Lexmark X6170 printer


The ultimate permanent fix for the x6170 printer would be to purchase new cartridge snap-down levers (the levers that snap down inside the dell printer to hold the cartridges, blue for color and black for black). If you purchase snap down levers for a Lexmark printer series X5100 or X6100 or Z55 or Z65, the little guide peg inside the snap lever would work with an unmodified 83 and 82 Lexmark cartridge. All Lexmark did for Dell to make the Dell unique, was to put special Dell snap levers on the printer. I considered breaking off the little guide peg on the snap lever, but decided against it as it appears to help hold the cartridge in alignment
