    Did that as u said But the fault seems similar to that of the HP 6110 with "scanner failure" .
    where is the scanner home position sensor located.it just says "failed to init" & sounds as if the scannermotor is gonna strip a gear.

Any type moisture on a printer can cause many problems especially a malfunction and possibly destroyed your whole printer. It will need to be cleaned very well in every area of the spill. Rollers, gears, shafts, surfaces must be clean for printer to function properly. Could possibly have to uninstall all printer software drivers and reinstall them restarting your machines.

Unable to print 48


The encoder strip may be dirty and needs to be cleaned with a lint free cloth. The encoder strip is responsible for relaying the position of the print head to the main pcb. If the encoder strip gets dirty, many different problems can occur. The encoder strip is exposed, which allows grease, paper dust, finger prints, ink, etc. to get onto it. (it's the white strip when you open the scanner cover)
If the machine still errors, the encoder strip needs to be replaced or there may be a problem with the main pcb

My Brother MFC-7420 Printer always prints black lines and splotches down the left side of my paper. This happens whether I'm scanning or printing from my PC. When I looked at my drum, it appears a


If you are seeing vertical streaks/black lines your primary corona wire is dirty and or the fax scanner may be dirty.
1)To clean the corona wire you take the drum unit and toner cartridge and place it on disposable paper to avoid spilling.
2) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by sliding the blue tab from right to left several times.
3) Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position.
4) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge.
5) Close the front cover.
Caution: if you do not return the blue tab to the home position it may repeat the black lines.

Hardware error 0502 from A dell 940


Here is how to fix error 502.

Rick

» Reposition the Encoder Strip on the A940 All-In-One Printer
To reposition the encoder strip, perform the following steps:
  1. Remove the power cord from the unit.
  2. Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located.
  3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.

Figure 1: Out-of-position encoder strip

  1. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
  2. Using your index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
new_note.jpg Note: There is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into, which is located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

While working with the encoder strip, check it for dust or any unclean spots. If any detected, try to clean the strip by wiping it gently with clean cloth.
  1. Gently press the strip first to the rear and then forward to ensure that it is seated correctly.
  2. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right to check the positioning of the encoder strip.

  1. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the lid to the unit.
  2. Re-connect the power supply to the All-In-One.
  3. Press the Power button. If the encoder strip was re-seated correctly, the Hardware Error: 502 code will not appear.

My epson stylus tx110 is noisy and does not print right. i think the rollers are busted.. some words are split in half..


Eventually all inkjet printers have this problem. When the printer is doing its thing (printing) there is a small amount of vaporised ink floating around the inside of the unit. This vapor collects on everything inside of the printing chamber, including the sensor strip the printer uses for tracking the print heads location. Luckily it's an easy fix, just clean the sensor strip.
To do this, get yourself some rubber gloves (unless you don't mind having Technicolor hands that is) and some lint free paper towels. Put the gloves on, then wet half a sheet of paper towel so its wet, but NOT dripping wet. open the printer and allow the ink heads to travel to middle. When they reach the middle, unplug the machine so the head stays unlocked and out of home position (where the print head goes when not printing). With the printer unplugged and the print head unlocked, locate the thin semi transparent strip running from one side of the printer to the other, it sorta floats there in mid air as its supported on either side by small metal tabs. Starting at the print head home position , gently, clean this strip with the wet paper towel, making sure not to apply too much pressure as you can pull the strip off the hanger tabs or erase the small lines printed onto on the strip. Once the home position section of the strip is cleaned, dry it off and slide the print head into it's home position and clean and dry the rest of the strip. When done, plug in and power up the unit, then do a test print to ensure the problem is fixed.
Hope this helps.

ERROR 0502


Re-position the Encoder Strip on your all in one Printer

To re-position the encoder strip, perform the following steps:

1. Remove the power cord from the unit.

2. Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located.

3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.

4. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.

5. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

NOTE
NOTE: There is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into, which is going to be located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

6. Gently press the strip first to the rear and then forward to ensure that it is seated correctly.

7. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right to check the positioning of the encoder strip.

8. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the lid to the unit.

9. Re-connect the power supply to the All-In-One.

10. Press the Power button. If the encoder strip was re-seated correctly, the Hardware Error: 502 code will not appear.

See attached pictures, one for an out or place encoder strip, the other for a well placed strip.

Other faults that can bring up this error is a carriage rail that needs cleaning and oiling (so you might want to do that while your inside the thing), and also obstructions to the paper ways. Try removing paper jams, and put the printer upside down to shake loose anything that might jam the mechanism.
