Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After months of use, your printer might get the habit of stopping in the middle of a page and showing "Hardware Error 0502" on the LCD display. If you leave the printer alone for a while, it might start printing again. Then again, it might not. Pretty annoying.
The Lexmark support site will let you power off, remove the power cord for 30 seconds, take out the cartridges and fiddle with some encoder strip. This whole procedure might take you up to 30 minutes and it will not help (been there, done that).
On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe the rod with a Kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.
Clean that with a paper towel. The towel will be black from ink residue, but you will be able to print again.
