Normi, The 1203 error as you suspected deals with the ink cartridge. This is a common problem and Lexmark has a troubleshooting procedure posted on their web site. Here is the link for the web page. http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/knowledgebase.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:439:0:0&emeaframe=&docid=ENUS21870 Hope this solves your problem and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

  • Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

  • If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.
    NOTE: The following illustration shows a black cartridge and a color cartridge (used for normal printing). For photo printing, use a photo cartridge and a color cartridge.
    sayurisan20_7.jpg







    Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

    Cartridge Error # 1203 when replacing black ink cartridge


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

    Lexmark x9350 printer gives error message #1203


    I logged into Lexmark's web site and checked their printer support page. It said that if you get error message 1203 your ink cartridge has leaked fluid. In order to find the right cartridge, do the following. Remove both ink cartridges, put in one, turn off the printer, turn it back on and if you get the message 1203 that's the cartridge with the problem. I did not get that message. I turned off the printer, put in the other cartridge, and turned it back on. Sure enough, I got the 1203 message again. (I had cleaned the wrong cartridge before). I removed the leaky cartridge, cleaneded it (making sure I did not leave any residue) and put it back in the printer. It worked!

    Error 1203


    hi..

    error 1203 means either or both cartridges have short circuited and needs replacement..

    You will need to perform the following steps to find out which cartridge is defective:


    1. With the printer turned ON, open the front cover and remove both cartridges from the printer.
    2. Power the printer OFF and unplug the power cable for 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back in and turn ON the printer.
    3. If the error message is now cleared from the printer, please perform the "Self-Test" by following the steps below:
    {
    1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
    2. Press the “Menu” button once.
    3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
    4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.
    5. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Tools: Maintenance”.
    6. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
    7. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
    8. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.
    }

    If the printer has detected a "Cartridge Missing" error, then please follow the steps given below:

    1. Turn the power OFF.
    2. Open the front cover.
    3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
    4. Reseat both cartridges in the printer and check for the error.
    5. If the error still displays, then remove the color print cartridge.
    6. Close the cover.
    7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
    8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
    9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
    10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.
    11. If you continue to receive an error in both cartridge scenarios, both print cartridges have short-circuited.

    Cartridge error


    How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

    My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark
