The lexmark 7170 is showing a cartridge error of 1203? what is that and how is it fixed?


This error is related to bad cartridge or damaged cartridge, first of all, remove all the cartridges, clean the copper contacts with a soft cloth dampen with alcohol/spirit/acetone. Also clean the contacts on the printer as well. It's also important to find out the culprit, only one of the cartridges must be causing the problem, so install the cartridge one by one and find out which one shows up the error message when installed, if possible, replace the defective cartridge if cleaning didn't help.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
