Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had the same problem, and I took the advice to clean my printer heads...All i done was take out both, color and black ink cartridges, wiped them with a dry towel very softly, and reinserted them. It came up with 2 messages to confirm the colors item number, i pressed select like 6 times, then it printed an alignment page...I was good to go from there! Good luck to others!

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

SOURCE: error 1203
Are you using a refilled cartridge or refilling your cartridge yourself?
Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer 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.
Please remember to post a feedback and or rating if my suggestion has helped you fix your problem.
Note: Refilling carts may damage the contacts of the carts as well as the printer (From a printer companies website)
(repeating this message again, for some reason this site logged me off and It didn't give me credit for the post)

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
