Question about Lexmark X7170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Error 1203 I put a brand new Lexmark 34 cartridge on 23rd October into my Lexmark X7170. Have had about 10 faxes since that date. No copies and no other printing done. Today, 27th October, I have just got the error message 1203. It says consult the manual - I have the manual and guess what - Lexmark has no references in there to any error messages! I have tried the supposed treatment of switching off and trying to trick the stupid machine by taking out and putting back the cartridges but to no avail. I am fed up wasting time on the kit - any thoughts? Buy an HP or some other more reliable kit?? Stephen Godfrey Gerrards Cross England SL9 8LP

I would email Lexmark. Thus far they have been good about assisting with problems. I have found that the User's Guide does not have the info in for numbered error messages also. Mention this to Lexmark when emailing them! Hope this is of help to you.

The read out display states Cartridge error 1203, refer to user manual


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. Good Luck

Hello. The error has something to do with the cartridges. It might be not seated properly, needs cleaning or just low in quality. You can try cleaning the nozzles of the cartridges using a damp paper towel. But, I believe the printer will have its optimum performance when using genuine Lexmark ink cartridges. Good luck!

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,
lilacgerry
