My brand new RX680 when turned on keeps asking for ink cartridges to be installed (Even though they are already installed) after a few seconds the carruiage starts initializing but only moves about a quarter inch. Followed by paper attempting to load. Then the printer screen displays
"A printer error has occured. Turn off printer and turn it on again. Please see your documentation"
Truning it off just repeats the process.
Any ideas as to what's going on and how to fix it?
Was given printer when someone got new and had same issue, dell replaced and let them keep the old printer. after a hour or looking for a solution on forums i started going over the printer. there is a small panel on the rear opposite side as power cord. I removed the panel to find some connections and a ribbon that was not completely in place. after securing the ribbon in place printer worked fine.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
I was changing my cyan cartridge and got this error. I thought for sure it was that cartridge. Tried a few things including pulling them all out and putting them all back in. Didn't work.
Finally, I found a place in the software that showed the info on all the cartridges. Turned out the light cyan was not reading. Took it out and rubbed the contacts with a pencil eraser. Voila! Problem solved.
Unfortunately many of the All-In-One devices are like this. If the Cartridges are installed but empty the system is reading that fault code as the Cartridges not being installed. Even though you are not using the ink the printer is most likely doing a light head cleaning when it cycles. Replace teh cartridges and it should clear up.
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.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

What is the brand name and model of your printer? Make sure that your ink cartridges are precisely the correct cartridges for the brand and model that you are using. From what I have experienced ... if you try to use a used ink cartridge you will recieve an error.
I had same problem with yellow ink cartridge. After going thru other suggestions I found on different forums that didn't work (turning printer off and on, cleaning contacts with alcohol, taking out and putting cartridge back in several times) I finally called Canon as my printer was still under 1yr warranty, and they sent me a brand new cartridge free of charge and it works great now (even though my cartridge that was giving error mssg was almost brand new too). I think they have a lot of lemon cartridges out there.
