Try to remove your cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reload the cartridges.

Hi, it seems that it's a cartridge problem. That's the most probable reason why you're getting that error code. Try this out. 1. Remove cartridges. 2. Unplug printer from power outlet. 3. Then, plug printer back in power outlet after 10-15 seconds. 4. Reinsert cartridges.
If error still appears, redo steps 1, 2 and 3. Then, insert black cartridge first. If error appears, replace black cartridge. If not, insert color cartridge, if error appears, replace color cartridge. Hope this helps.
If you get errors after refilling and then you clear the error!
And you still get errors occuring then this is a problem with the
1)The cartridges printhead may have burned out if it was run dry. (new cartridge is required)
2) No ink is coming out of the port hole! Try dabbing the bottom of the
cartridge on tissue. Ink should appear if not then use tissue with
Isopropyl alcohol and blot lightly until ink apppears.
3) If not ink appears then you may have an air bubble blocking the flow
of the ink. wrap cartridge tightly in plastic wrap holing in an up
right position whip downwards this will force air to the top of the
cartridge and open the port on the bottom. Remove wrap and try it out.
4) If the cartridge sat empty for a period of time before refilling you
are wasting your time. The ink is probably sitting at the top of the
cartridge and can not migrate to the bottom, in this case it may have
In refilling of Lexmark cartridges:
Refill often and do not allow them to run dry. Running them while there
is not ink in the cartridge burns the print head out and the cartridge
will not work and you will get an error.
By refilling often the cartridge stays in good condition, you do not
run out of ink during a print job, and the cartridge will have a
prolonged life span.
Error 1102 means cart error. Try cleaning the copper contacts on the cart and the contacts in the printer also. If still fails, then put old carts and check if u still get same error. If u dont get the error then there is a problem with the cart itself. But if you have bought a refilled cart then the print heads on the carts are bad. Needs replacement.
Remover Black and color cartridges. Place small paper towel to protect ink outlet on bottom of printer. Use WD-40 spray on copper surfaces,both sides(Blk& Color). Dry surfaces with paper towel. remove small towel placed in bottom . Reinstall both cartridges. This cleared my 1102 error. Die Rote Baron!
