System.out.print("Enter character that you want to print:");
int x=sc.nextInt();

for (int i=1;i<=5;i++)
{
for (int j=1;j<=5;j++)
{
if (i!=3){
if (j==1 || j==5){
System.out.print("*");
}
else {
System.out.print("^");
}
}
else {
System.out.print("*");
}
}// j loop
System.out.println();
} // i loop
}
}

I'm not familiar with that error, and I can't reproduce it. Note that the Scanner is trying to scan an int, so make sure that's what you're giving it. When I give it an int, it works fine for me (although I'm not sure what it's doing).

Here again, it's working fine for me. But note that when you run this, you won't see anything on the screen until you give the Scanner some input.

If you want something to show, you need to code it. For example, in the first program, you had a line that prompted the user for input...

But there is nothing like this in the second program, so it just waits.
