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!

The 0502 error can have any of four possible causes:

- A faulty black/photo cartridge
- A faulty color photo cartridge
- A dirty encoder strip
- The encoder strip being out of position

There is a very good walkthrough on resolving these issues:

Hi there

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.

The 0502 error can have any of four possible causes:
- A faulty black/photo cartridge
- A faulty color photo cartridge

- The encoder strip being out of position
.... most of the time, it's the encoder strip that is giving the problem..
