C.J. It worked great and my printer is working Reply Ken says: 2008-04-06 at 10:46 pm Paper towel wiping made my X6100 printer work perfect!! But if there is a correct way it would be nice to know. I started looking more in depth into the problem and noticed that a fishing hook was under something making the cartridges not go all the way across the rod!! http://cygnussoft.com/lexmark-x5150/lexmark-x5150-printer-error-code-0502.html
Your little tip worked perfectly. If you leave the printer alone for a while, it might start printing again. Cleaning the rod with a tissue worked! Reply Laura says: 2009-12-08 at 10:14 pm This is SIMPLY amazing!!

Clem (from fixyourownprinter.com) This works! Thanks so much…YOU DA MAN!!! This is where it's tricky because it seemed as if the factory lightly melted a few joints just so you'd break it if you tried to take it apart. http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=content&id=SO1516&actp=LIST_RECENT Reply Andrea says: 2009-12-21 at 7:13 pm This worked!!

CAREFUL NOT TO PULL OUT THE THREE WIRE STRIPS IN THE PROCESS.3) Under where the scanner bed sits, the three wire strips go into the printer behind a door about 4 Reply m r says: 2010-01-27 at 1:49 pm dear freinds and Clem the Lexmark tech suport, is one of the worst (Lenovo is worst)next time i will buy something else any The rod must have been dirty enough but not too dirty. his comment is here i tried everything EVEN tapping it with small hammer..
You saved me lots of money and saved the printer unnecessary disposal! Cleaning and running the test programs do no good. Wiped the bar with a kleenex and there you go!!
This has happened twice. Ask Freddy M. Cleaned the cartridges, did an alignment, but it refuses to print,does not copy or print, seems like the cartridges are to high over the paper, at first it just got lighter, Reply bookiebooke says: 2010-01-09 at 4:34 pm Mine's a Dell (but made by Lexmark).
Reply Sara says: 2006-11-04 at 9:06 pm I am eternally grateful!! most probably u cant purchase it anywhere.if the encoder strip is still present, check if it is still positioned properly, at the back of the carriers because it guides the carriers Now the silly thing decides to quite printing all together.
