050 Error 0502 and 0504
Hi there
You can try this

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.

  1. Switch off the printer using the power button.
  2. Disconnect the power cable from the back of theprinter
  3. Leave the power cable disconnected for 30 seconds.
  4. Slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer by taking the top part of the belt and moving it gently to the right.
  5. Take out both cartridges.
  6. Place an index finger on the encoder strip on either side of the cartridge carrier.
  7. On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Slightly push the encoder strip down and then back up to get it into the slot.
  8. Lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary.
  9. Clean the encoder strip with a dry tissue. Also clean the contacts of the printer
  10. Try to make a copy..

Good luck....

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.

The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.

The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.

If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.

Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. Lexmark will replace the printer, only if it is under warranty.

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

Open the printer. Take a Kleenex and wipe off the metal rail the cartridges travel on. You will find a lot of ink build-up. Be sure to wipr off the ENTIRE rail. You should be good to go!
