My printer will stop during a printing job and say that there is a problem with the printer. Usually the error is 0502. Sometimes turning the printer off and restarting helps but not always.. At times the copier will not work either.
Hardware Error: 0502.
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.

The 0502 error code can be caused by either faulty cartridge or a dislodged encoder strip (transparent strip) in the cartridge area. Refer to this article in the Lexmark website on Error 0502 on the Lexmark X5130/X5150/X5190 Pro LCD Display. This will help you determine and resolve the problem. Thanks.
"When the printer fuser fails it prompts many HP laser printers to display an ERROR CODE 50 service code" same could be said about the lexmark fuser malfunction replacining a fuser can be expensive might be better to get another printer unless you have a special bond like me i find it hard to just throw away things that have gone bad
I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:
1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.
2.) Then go into User Accounts.
3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off
4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.
5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.
Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!
Hmmm i think i need a bit more info... have you tried using the copy function? Check the Lcd screen for error msgs? If the copy function works and there are no error msgs then i would suggest a uninstall and then reinstall of the driver:
Use this updated driver direct from lexmark. During the install it should print a test page.
I have a lexmark x5150 printer, scanner, copier, and fax machine. I keep getting the message: hardware error 0502. The cartridges are stalled on the left side and the printer won't do anything. Can someone help me??
