Installed refilled ink catriges,both black and color used for a few days all was well then, it reads Catridge Error -Error: 50C Go to users guide. what do I do Now cannot find users guide. plzzz help.


Though Lexmark does not recommend using refilled inks. You may refer to this article from the Lexmark website on Cartridge Error 50C and Other Errors on the Lexmark X5100/X6100 Series LCD Screen. If this does not help, try to insert a genuine Lexmark cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty. Thanks.

IT KEEPS TELLING ME THE RIGHT CARTRIGE IS WRONG, ERROR #1203, WE LOST OR OWNERS GUIDE


Here is what Lexmark says:

Cartridge Error: 1203 Your print cartridge has a short.
  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, see More troubleshooting options, or replace your cartridges.

Also the cartridge that should be installed looks like Lexmark 32 ink for black and 33 ink for color.

Hi my name is Hector,on my 2.5 inch display it say cartridge erro error #1203. I checked my users guide it dosnt say anything about error numbers.


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203

It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a problem and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.


or try this other option:


Dell All-in-One Printer Cartridge Error 1203.

I found if you cover a copper contact on the color cartridge the error clears and the cartridge works. Looking from the contact side for the color cartridge 2nd row contact 2 from the left. I found if I use an ohm meter from 2nd to 3rd contact I measure 119 ohms. I believe that is a shorted cartridge. If you bought it New I would get it replaced. I use a SMALL square piece of Scotch tape. I believe this will work on Lexmark printers.

I ordered Lexmark 32 & 33 ink cartridges off ebay (but they are not 'genuine'). I'm getting an error message #1203 - 'Consult your user's guide'. Does my Lexmark X7350 only accept Lexmark brand...


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.

Error Message 1203??


These steps are for a Lexmark 4200, but I suspect they will work for your printer as well:

Cartridge Error: 1203

Your print cartridge has a short.

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, see More troubleshooting options, or replace your cartridges.

Error 1203


Are you using a refilled cartridge1.gif or refilling your cartridge yourself?

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer1.gif cartridge Slot is bad... Try to cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
If that doesn't work, then you might try a new black cartridge and possibly a color cartridge too.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Note: Refilling carts may damage the contacts of the carts as well as the printer (From a printer companies website)
