    I have done all of these steps repeatedly and still cannot get the error to go away...HELP!! I bought a new ink cartridge just in case, so I am stumped..

  • ulri1010 Apr 21, 2009

    Although both cartridges are in place I keep getting the error message that 'print cartridge is missing'. I tried the foll.suggestion
    "....Turn off power to the printer and unplug it from the back of the printer.

    Insert the power cord back into the printer. You will hear some clicks and motors moving. Pull out the cord again when this happens.

    Open the cartridge bay by pulling the face forward and lifting the bay door up. The cartridge carousel most likely will not come to the center.

    trying physically pulling the carousel to the middle. (NOT BY THE RIBBON CABLE) If you can not pull it to the middle push it far right as possible. Listen for a click.

    After pushing to the right and hearing a click you should then be able to pull the carousel towards the middle easily. Remove the ink cartridges and power up the printer again.

    You will receive an error along the lines of black cartridge missing. Open the bay, insert the cartridges, close the bay..."

    Hoever I never receive the message then that the black cartridge is missing after foll. all the above menbtioned steps.
    Please help.

Tried what blkghost suggested above but had to tweak his advice slightly.

Turn off power to the printer and unplug it from the back of the printer.

Insert the power cord back into the printer. You will hear some clicks and motors moving. Pull out the cord again when this happens.

Open the cartridge bay by pulling the face forward and lifting the bay door up. The cartridge carousel most likely will not come to the center.

trying physically pulling the carousel to the middle. (NOT BY THE RIBBON CABLE) If you can not pull it to the middle push it far right as possible. Listen for a click.

After pushing to the right and hearing a click you should then be able to pull the carousel towards the middle easily. Remove the ink cartridges and power up the printer again.

You will receive an error along the lines of black cartridge missing. Open the bay, insert the cartridges, close the bay.

YAY problem fixed.

To see if the cartridge is in the place, try this connect the power cord and when u see the printer become to work moving a little bit turn off the printer on the power cord. Then u can freely move the cartridge, to see if any problem.

I have error 1200 on my lexmark x4270 fax machine after installing new black cartridge.


The 1200 error code indicates that the cartridge carrier has stalled. It could be due to the new black cartridge installed in the printer. Make sure you are using the correct version of black cartridge for your model and it's properly inserted in the cartridge carrier.
To remedy the problem, try to remove the black cartridge from the carrier > close the cover > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, re-insert the new black cartridge > check for any errors. If problem continues, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the new one is faulty.
For further troubleshooting, you may also refer to this article found in the Lexmark website: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One.
