Try cleaning the contact on both the ink cartridges and the carriage with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. It that doesn't work, replace the ink cartridges.

Hi,

The steps below should help you override the error and make the printer accept the cartridges and allow you to print.

Instructions
    • 1

      Remove and replace the print cartridge. If that doesn't solve the error, move on to Step 2.

    • 2

      Remove the print cartridge from the machine.


      • 3

        Wet the end of a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol.

      • 4

        Wipe the copper colored contacts on the print cartridge with the cotton swab to clean.

      • 5

        Wipe the contacts in the printer where the cartridge sits.

      • 6

        Replace the cartridge and try a test print. If removing residue for a clean connection didn't solve the error, move on to step 7.

      • 7

        Turn off the printer.

      • 8

        Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for 15 to 30 minutes. This will reset the printer.

      • 9

        Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on.

      • 10

        Print a test page.

    I put a cheaper replacement cartridge in for the printer and it says on the printer Error#1203. It also says cartridge error


    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.
    Hope this helps

    Hp psc 1210xi all in one printer says refilled cartridge is defective. HP says printer remembers cartridge serial number, counts number of prints executed & after certain number of prints, won't...


    Well, if the electronic circuit on the cartridge has blown, you have no other alternative then to buy a new cartridge. You can remove the cartridge and gently wipe the cartridge contacts. Turn off your printer, wait for a few min, then turn it back on. Put the cartridge back.
    If that doesn't work,
    1. Open the cartridge access door.
    2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
    3. Close the cartridge access door.
      • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
      • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed ), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.
    There is a cmos battery in the printer, and, yes, when you remove it, the printer forgets everything (serial number, number of copies, etc). I have found a clip, but it says it only works for some HP printers. You can try that, but I am not sure that will help solve your problem.

      • If the message on the computer does not identify a particular cartridge (it says only Print cartridge error ), follow the steps below to determine which cartridge is causing the problem.
        1. Open the cartridge access door.
        2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
        3. Close the cartridge access door.
          • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
          • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.

    • If the problem still occurs, the electrical contact between the cartridges and the printer might be bad. Removing and reseating the cartridges might help. Also, you can clean the electric contacts on the cartridges with a dry cloth.
    Hope that will help solve your problem!
