If you are using Windows Vista, then you would need to update your drivers appropriate to your OS, update Vista specifically is USB ports drivers to the latest updates/patches. This is a common issue with Vista's USB ports. Microsoft has acknowledge the issues and has posted a fix here and here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: my lexmark x6150 says hardware error 0502

Hardware Error 0502 on LCD Display

The encoder strip may have gone out of range of the sensor, or it might be dirty.
You need to check the encoder strip on the printer. This is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge carrier.
Check the encoder strip

    1. Switch off the printer using the power button.
    2. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer.
    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.

      Click here for an enlarged view. The contacts on the back of the cartridge carrier are the ones you need to clean. IMPORTANT: Use a dry tissue.

    10. Reconnect the power cable and switch the printer on again.
    11. Perform the hardware test, first without the cartridges and then with both cartridges. Click on the applicable article link below.

      How to Perform the Hardware Test on the Lexmark X6150/X6170

    12. Make a standalone copy.
    13. If the copy is satisfactory, repeat the test once to confirm that the error is gone.

Thank you

I can not get the correct driver for the Lexmark X6150 All-In-One InkJet Printer. It installs everything but the scanner and the coppier.

Yes lexmark will not provide the drivers to these all in ones. They claim the 3rd party supplier prevents them from doing it. The only way to reload these drivers is to use the disk that came with the machine. Sometimes you can buy another one from lexmark but after 1-2 years they quit selling them because they want you to buy a new printer. Good luck.

I have X6150 Lexmark and I am having a problem scanning from printer to computer. I have windows Vista operating system. Can you assist?

I have the same problem. The scanner isn't working at all.
I installed the current drivers from the lexmark suport page.
The hardware manager announces a problem with currupt registry information about the scanner (error code 19). Re-installation didn't fixed it and I even cleared the registry... but still now effect.
Printing works fine.
It would be very great if somebody here may have an idea...
Thanks in advance.

Lexmark x6150 wont scan

Sounds like your laptop isn't talking to your scanner. These scanners only work if it has access to a computer to store the scanned image. Check if your USB drivers are installed. Most times you can go to "Device Drivers" in Control Panel (Under the "System" icon) and right click USB to update drivers on the net. Depends how old your laptop is too. If that isn't the problem, try installing the drivers again, or search the net for newer versions.(Usually at the Lexmark site). But at the end of the day, you won't be able to scan till your laptop can recognize your Lexmark printer!!!!
