Short answer... Yes...
If either cartridge reads as empty the printer will refuse to print to avoid damaging the printhead.

No the printer cant operate if there is a cartridge missing or empty.
Q: Can the printer still print if an ink cartridge is expended or not installed? A: No. The printer will not operate if any cartridge is expended or removed. It’s best to always have extra cartridges on hand

With the power on to machine and it turned on, open scanner lid by lifting entire top upwards(operations panel lifts up), cartridge mechanism should move to the left to allow cartridge removal, push cartridges down to remove.

Where can we get the cartridges?


The Operating Manual can be gotten off of the disk that came with the printer. Cartridges are sold in most Office stores, and anywhere the printers are sold. I looked for more specific links but there are too many of them if you Google for the Lexmark X4270 manual and cartridges.

Error 1203


The error 1203 error message on the operator panel could indicate a problem with one of the ink cartridges. Please follow the steps given below:

1. Please make sure the All-In-One is powered on.
2. Pull the control panel towards you, and then open the cartridge access door. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position.
3. Pull the old cartridges towards you, and then lift them out.
4. With the cartridges out of the printer, shut the access door and the control panel.
5. Power the printer OFF and then back ON.
6. Please check the operator panel to see if the same error has returned or if a new message has appeared.
7. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware.
If the message now displaying is Cartridge Missing, do the following:

1. Reinstall the cartridges into the printer.
2. Insert the color cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the black cartridge in the right carrier.
3. Push back firmly on the cartridges until they snap securely into place.
4. Close the cartridge access door, and then close the control panel.
5. If the 1203 message is still present on the operator panel, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure.
6. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the access door and control panel.
7. Please check the operator panel. If the 1203 error is displayed, this cartridge is the defective item. If the Cartridge Missing message is displayed, the second cartridge is producing the failure.
8. Please replace the defective cartridge.

The manuals can be downloaded free here.

The cartrages can be purchased from just about anywhere... I looked them up at www.tigerdirect.com and they go for about $25 for the black one and $13 for each color. You should be able to just buy the ones you need. Here are the part numbers for the cartridges:

LC41C
