Hi!

To resolve the printer error 1203 on your Lexmark X5470 All-In-One (AIO) Inkjet Printer, you need to perform the following tasks---

Power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Wait 30 seconds, then reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on. if the error message return then continue to print a test page. If the test page prints, the error is resolved. If still the power persists then you need to open the top cover of the AIO and remove both cartridges from the AIO. After that power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Wait 30 seconds, then reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on and if the error message return then there is a hardware problem with the printer. If error message not return then you need to again power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on. Open the top cover of the AIO and insert the color cartridge. Close the top cover. If the error message returns then you need to clean the cartridge contacts.

Again try to rest it by powering off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on. Open the top cover of the AIO and insert the black/photo cartridge. Close the top cover. Now print a tests page. If the test page prints, the error is resolved.

Cleaning the Cartridge Contacts
1 Open the top cover of the AIO and remove the cartridges.
2 Remove the cartridges. Clean the cartridge contacts and the AIO carrier contacts.

Checking the Cartridge
To see if the cartridge is defective, replace it with either a new cartridge or a known good cartridge from another printer of this type.
1. Turn the printer/All-In-One off and unplug the power cable from the outlet.
2. Open the printer/All-In-One lid so that the cartridge carrier can be accessed.
3. Remove the print cartridges. (For information on cleaning the cartridge contacts, click here.)
4. Using a dry, clean cloth wipe the carrier contacts gently from top to bottom.
5. Repeat Step 4 for the other cartridge slot (if applicable).
6. Reinsert the cartridges, slide the cartridge carrier to its original position, and close the printer/All-In-One lid.
7. Plug the printer/All-In-One back into the power outlet and turn it back on.

You should only follow the steps below to resolve a print quality problem if you have already attempted to solve the problem by printing a "Clean Print Nozzles" page.

Cleaning procedure - Remove the print cartridges. Moisten a clean, lint-free cloth with water. Gently hold the cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds, and then wipe in the downward direction while keeping the print head in downward position on the cloth. Using another clean section of the cloth, gently hold the cloth against the contacts for about three seconds, and then wipe in the upward direction of the print head.

With another clean section of the cloth, repeat steps 2 through 4 above. Allow the nozzles and contacts to dry completely. Reinsert the print cartridges. Print the document again. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times.

If still the error message persists then you need to contact the Lexmark.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Error code 1203


To determine whether this error is due to a cartridge failure or a hardware problem with the printer, do the following: Make sure the printer is powered on. Open the printer's top cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position. Press down on the cartridge lever to raise the cartridge lid. Remove the cartridges. With the cartridges out of the printer, close the top cover. Power the printer OFF and then back ON. Check the operator panel to see if the 1203 error has returned or if a new message is displayed. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support. If the message is Cartridge Missing, reinstall the cartridges into the printer. Insert the black cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the color cartridge in the right carrier. Snap the lids closed. Close the top cover. Check the operator panel. If the 1203 message is still present, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the top cover and check the operator panel. If the 1203 message is displayed, that cartridge is producing the error. If Cartridge Missing is displayed, the second cartridge is the defective item. Please replace the defective cartridge.
