Error 1203 means ink overflow i think. Here are some solutions you can try:

Solution #1:
use a klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder. Sometimes ink is smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge.

Solution #2:
place your old cartrages back in and see it if works without giving you an error code. If so, return the new ones back to Dell because they are probably defective and Dell will replace them for you.

Solution #3
turn off printer. Remove AC power cord and USB cable from back of printer for 1 minute. Replug and retry. This actually should be your first step.

Hope this helps!

Prenter 926 shows error 1203


A 1203 error usually involves some type of cartridge problem.

Did you recently change a cartridge out? If so, did you use a factory new ink cartridge by Dell?

If you did not, then that could be your problem.

My dell printer 924 is giving me a message 1203


From what I was reading this error is caused by the contacts where your print cartridge connects being dirty or having old ink smeared on them. Pull out your ink cartridges and use a cloth with just a little dab of water to wipe any old ink off of these contacts.
To reset the error code you should be able to disconnect the power cord from the wall. Also remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Then connect everything again.
