Hi my name is Hector,on my 2.5 inch display it say cartridge erro error #1203. I checked my users guide it dosnt say anything about error numbers.


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203

It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a problem and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.


or try this other option:


Dell All-in-One Printer Cartridge Error 1203.

I found if you cover a copper contact on the color cartridge the error clears and the cartridge works. Looking from the contact side for the color cartridge 2nd row contact 2 from the left. I found if I use an ohm meter from 2nd to 3rd contact I measure 119 ohms. I believe that is a shorted cartridge. If you bought it New I would get it replaced. I use a SMALL square piece of Scotch tape. I believe this will work on Lexmark printers.

You can refill the cartridges with ink but what they don't tell you is the cartidges can only be use 3-4 times if not less...the electronic package on the cartridge is not designed for multiple use. You may have to install all new cartidges and if the system has been corrupt, you may to uninstall and re-install the device for it to work.

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?


Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges

Are you using a refilled cartridge1.gif or refilling your cartridge yourself?

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer1.gif cartridge Slot is bad... Try to cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
If that doesn't work, then you might try a new black cartridge and possibly a color cartridge too.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Cartridge error


How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark
