Hi there please try this.

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
or
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

C 3180 hp printer, just bought from thrift store, ----but,,,it seems the thing that holds the ink cartridges is stuck, though its trying to slide as it should, it seems to be hitting,jamming , light re;...


First of all, if the ink cartridges are stuck, as you rightly guessed, it may not be the correct cartridge.

Now, even suppose, it is the correct cartridge, it would not have been installed correctly . the Label side of the cartridge should face upwards, Not towards you.. when you are inserting the ink cartridge.

if you are from India the compatible ink cartridge would be HP 850(BLACK) AND HP 855(COLOR)

In North,South America it is HP 92(BLACK) AND HP 93.

Lexmark x4270- Can't find manual. Shows error 1203. How can I correct this. Thanks


Hi


Error 1203 occurs due to smearing of ink on the carriage bottom where the cartridge head touches the carriage bottom. Please turn off your printer and unplug it.
Clean the bottom of carriage with a damp cloth and clean any dried ink. Make sure that you use the printer after 5-10 mins or until the carriage area dries up completely.

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.

Now try and check whether you are still getting an error. I hope that you are using orignal Lexmark ink. If not then please use genuine inks only.

I install a new ink cartidge color into my LexMark Printer is P4350. Its keeps telling me I have a error of 1203. What does this mean?


Bad or mis-installed ink cartridge. Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. If the printer has a cleaning option either on the printer itself through the menuing system or on the machine through the print driver, you can use that afterwards. Some printers will let you re-run the cleaning utility several times. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expects you to have is not installed. This will give a similar error. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

Lexmark x9350 printer gives error message #1203


I logged into Lexmark's web site and checked their printer support page. It said that if you get error message 1203 your ink cartridge has leaked fluid. In order to find the right cartridge, do the following. Remove both ink cartridges, put in one, turn off the printer, turn it back on and if you get the message 1203 that's the cartridge with the problem. I did not get that message. I turned off the printer, put in the other cartridge, and turned it back on. Sure enough, I got the 1203 message again. (I had cleaned the wrong cartridge before). I removed the leaky cartridge, cleaneded it (making sure I did not leave any residue) and put it back in the printer. It worked!

Canon MP500 error message


If you're using Canon OEM (branded) cartridges you're going to need to ID the problem chip/cartridge so I'd try and get hold of some empty originals from somewhere (CartridgeWorld or similar perhaps?) and put those in as replacements for one cartridge at a time until you ID the problem cartridge/chip

If they're non-branded then chances are you do have more than one of the same chip but the solution is much the same...


If all else fails, take the printer to a friendly retailer who sell Canons and ask them to help you ID the problem cartridge.

Error message 1203 on Lemark X4270


Does your unit have a printhead cleaning manager. Do this a few times. Check to see if you have to reset ink levels too.
