Dell A940 Printer Hardware Error 0502

I don't know what else to do. I cleaned the metal rod with a kleenex as suggested, but think I've accidentally done something in the process! So heres hoping the rest of you that is having this problem can fix yours as easy as I did mine. Can't even use the scanner until this problem is fixed.

Will I be good now? THANKS!! So now I can't get it back on and my printer reads this error immediately after power on. I sent the 2 refurbs back to dell.

A940 All-In-One... i dont know how to back it up. The printer just started up again with the "hardware error 0502"; good thing I'd bookmarked this site! check my blog Keep us informed if you find out anything new though!

Two weeks of trying to print checks and invoices for my clients - messed up the checks, gone thru a ton of paper, ink, etc! So be patient and I hope this helps! Just prior to this problem, color printing was yielding a blue background where just text should have been.
