Ok this some times works.

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.

It sounds like the printer thinks it is not a genuine ink cartridge. Fit a Lexmark cartridge to cure it.
