Re: massage unsupport ink on lexmark X4270

Sadly, not all inks are created equal, and even inks that are claimed "compatable" are not allways safe. My HP photo printer worked great for 2 years, then I put in a "will fit" from a name brand office supply store, the printer nozzles plugged on the second print, never to print correctly again. My replacement printer is a Kodak 5300 all in one, chosen for low ink costs/ hi-output, and I get photo-lab quality, borderless prints day after day. (I'm a photographer/artist) I have run 6 color and 5 blacks for thousands of graphics, in a period of 2 months getting ready for a showing, with maybe 1 or 2 misprints.

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


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 have a Lexmark x5470 & I get an error unsupported cartridge

Ink cartriges have chips in them, if the printer does so many prints without getting the "I've had a new Original Cart fitted" it will stop untill,you give it one, regardless if there ink or not

Im afraid it doesn't care that you only need to use the colour cartridge, it is designed to cost you money and make money for lexmark not refillers.

Welcome to our modern world, manufactures make the ink hard to recycle by incorperation of expensive chips that makes refillers, unable to make a easy dollar, because if that want to make cartridges that work they must also fit the expensive chip.

All empty cartridges have a little ink left in them because getting air in ink lines is not a thing we want.

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.

Check to see if any ink is smeared inside the holder where the contact panel is located. Normally gold contacts.
Clean off the contacts with a paper towel or q-tip.
Then try reprinting the alignment page. Then print the test page a few times.

Hope this helps
