Reply Calambres says: 2007-10-22 at 2:21 pm Thanks… wiping the rod solved the 0502 error in my Lexmark X5130 all-in-one printer. Now everything is fine. Reply Chrisco says: 2006-11-12 at 11:57 am Hey, thanks for posting this fix, it really worked for my Lexmark X6170. This is what real troubleshooting is about.
When printing on my Lexmark x6170 the left side of the pages were always smudged and "missing" information. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error. I love this old dog printer-had it over 5 years now and just wanted to keep it going, as money is tight. He also said that lexmark does not carry this part.

I thought I was gonna spend a day trying to fix this. http://compsyscon.com/lexmark-error/lexmark-error-900-43.html I cleaned and lubricated the metal rod, and so far the printer is working again. One end has the letter ‘F' the other ‘D'. Unbelievably, all I had to do was thoroughly clean that transparant plastic strip thingy that runs horizontal behind the printer cartriges from one side of the printer to the other (took
The Lexmark Tech Support can only assist with common problems people have from not reading the manual or just missing the operating procedure…they cannot offer advice for heavy maintenance. I have tried just about every which way but it still crashes on power on. Looking into this a bit further, I decided that the problem must be due to that plastic strip having become detatched from the carriage. Check This Out says: 2006-03-29 at 10:05 pm hey guys.

It is hard to believe it was that easy of a fix. This should take care of the printing problems…if not, then you may actually need a new printer. IT IS ONLY A PRINTER. Where do these sides attach?
