    I have the same problem and this has resulted in numerous phone calls to lexmark in India and they have told us variously that our brand new just bought cartridges are expired or refills, that our second set doesn't have a four digit number on it that it should have...ad nauseum...Lexmark stinks We are out a printer and over 100 dollars in refills.

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

Error 1203


Error 1203 means that there is no cartridge attached to the printer head. However, there are some cases when this error message appears because the cartridge is not attached properly to the printer. If this happens, the printer will not be able to identify the presence of the cartridge and thus encounter an error.

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.

What is Error #1203 on the Lexmark X4270 fax machine mean? and how do I solve it?


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.
