Hardware Error 502 Dell A940
Thanks a million!!! My ink was low so I changed it and then I started to get the 502 hardware error. I'm wondering if that's what's going on with mine... by smiley_face2 on Aug 28, 2007 at 12:39pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 To my knowledge you cant get rid of the low ink warning or the low check over here
Were you able to resolve yours, and if so, how? Dell sent 2 refurbed replacements. Many thanks for the awesome tip. Reply Kevin says: 2010-02-05 at 7:49 pm i'm sure that fix works fine.
I have had no trouble since then - other than nusiance warnings about low ink when using refilled cartridges. My ancient printer often produced the 502 hardware error message when in the middle of printing. I put that in the color side..
AND I THINK THAT THIS IS WHERE THIS ONE IS GOING TO. When I turn the printer on, the ink carts slide somewhat, and there is a slight 'knock' and then they stop. I was told that the printed circuit on the ink cartridge is programed for a one time use. This whole procedure might take you up to 30 minutes and it will not help (been there, done that).
I know what you mean Dell will not help you unless you pay for help. I cleaned the metal rod with a kleenex as suggested, but think I've accidentally done something in the process! Take out both cartridges. http://en.community.dell.com/dell-groups/new-to-community/f/3511/t/19268082 SO I put an empty Black in the color side, and a New Black in the black side and Voila.
i broke one of the little thingies undeer the top so yuh..i think i'll be okay, i don't need color ink anyways and i'll only print text.happy holidays everyone. - unknown They are a throw away printer.

It does appear the encoder strip is out of place, but where exactly is the slot it's supposed to fit into? There is no one here from Dell for you to be yelling at.

I just refilled my cartridges and am looking to see how to reset the page count and ink level settings.... I follow the instructions given......it makes no difference. I did a little more reading here & then put my color back in & it would come up the error 50C again.
I've only replaced the ink cartridge once!
So far so good. The printer has been fairly good to me but needing it for some graphics projects in 3 days and it going down made me freak! I have a feeling this fine piece of forign SH** is scrap. I've printed off a 2 page document, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the problem is resolved!
I was like No way Im buying a new printer now.
