Error 1203 on a Lexmark printer indicates that the printer cartridge has a short circuit. Lexmark recommends that you resolve the issue as follows:

1. Press Power to turn your All-In-One off.
2. Unplug your All-In-One from the wall outlet.
3. Plug in your All-In-One.
4. Reinstall the cartridges.

If this does not resolve the problem, replace your cartridges to fix the problem.

Error 1203


Error 1203 means that there is no cartridge attached to the printer head. However, there are some cases when this error message appears because the cartridge is not attached properly to the printer. If this happens, the printer will not be able to identify the presence of the cartridge and thus encounter an error.

What is Error #1203 on the Lexmark X4270 fax machine mean? and how do I solve it?


Hi there

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
or
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.


All the best Pineworks

Error code 1203 with my lexmark x4270


Hello,
have you tried cleaning the gold points on the cartridge heads and cartridge slots. Use a proper claning solution and non scented baby wipes or q tips (cotton buds) are good cleaning items. This may restore error 1203. You can also reset it by unpluging it after turning it off. Unplug all cords after waiting a moment replug all an turn on. Try and print now. Post back if no good
Cheers,
