Printer just has following message Error 1203 consult user's guide" which I do not have


Error 1203 comes from a refilled ink cartridge.

Try purchasing the Brand name ink cartridge and the error message should go away.

Hi there

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.

All the best Pineworks

This might well be another case where saving $ on a refill has cost you the wasted ink you bought. In my experience, refilled cartridges and 3rd party cartridges just dont cut it. Replace your cartridges with the OEM products and you will not go far wrong.

There will probably be others who have had other experience, this is mine and my recommendation.

Thanks for your quesiton.

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.

Refilled ink cartridges at Walgreens, printer won't recognize


Hello!
28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill.
You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.

Error # 1203 Cartridge Error


Have you recently refilled or replaced any of the cartridges. 1203 is usually one of two things.

1. An overfilled cartridge (fixed by wrapping in damp paper towel for a bit until excess ink wicks out)
2. Ink smeared on contacts (fixed by cleaning contacts on cartridge and on printer's cartridge housing)

Error: Remove and replace color cartridge


Because the software inside the cartridge was not reset. They do not have the electronic equiptment to do that.  I believe you woudl have to refill the ink before you got the empty mesasage?

HELLO! I HAVE A SHARP FAX MACHINE (UXA1000- INK CARTRIDGE UX-C70B)AND I WANT TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS CARTRIDGE REFILLED AT WALGREN'S STORES LIKE MOST CARTRIDGES.


You should be able to, but the problem is this:
they only refill it, if there is a problem with the cartridge it doesn't help.

there is more to just putting ink in a cartridge.
1- you must clean the inside removing dried ink
2-you must clean the nozzles tomake sure the ink can flow
3-replace any pads inside
4-refill ink

I have heard complaints about Walgreens so take your chances, a better solution may be a company called Rapid refill ink ( they do all the above to their ink crtgs)

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
