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.

You can refill the cartridges with ink but what they don't tell you is the cartidges can only be use 3-4 times if not less...the electronic package on the cartridge is not designed for multiple use. You may have to install all new cartidges and if the system has been corrupt, you may to uninstall and re-install the device for it to work.
