    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 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.

Used x4270 .no cd to download. list of printers does not inclued 4270. having problems with error 1200. took out old cartlidge and don't know how to put them back. have printer connected to computer...

Try to fix the 1200 error first. The error indicates that the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please refer to this article to fix the problem: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One. Once your cartridge carrier is functioning properl, re-insert your cartridges - How to Install Ink Cartridges In Lexmark X4200 Series AIO.

You can download the Lexmark X4270 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

For your scanning concern, especially when scanning documents, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software to do the job. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

We are not able to send faxes,the error message is 1200. The reference number for the fax is x4270.

The 1200 error indicates the cartridge carrier has stalled. It could be caused by a cartridge that's not properly seated or the encoder strip (transparent strip behind the cartridge carrier) is out of place. Refer to this article from the Lexmark website: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One to help you identify and resolve the problem.
If you need additional assistance, please contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

I have a lexmark X4270 fax machine, and I have just got a new black ink cartridge. The old one was a lexmark 71 the man at Quill said to get a lexmark 75 hi-yield. so I did my machine keeps saying black...

Did Quill sell you a "OEM" (Original Manufacturer's Equipment) or a cartridge a third party cartridge?

If it is a third party ink or cartridge, then that's your problem. Lexmark does not condone the use of third party ink or cartridges. This is considered to be product tampering by Lexmark and they will void the printer warranty if damage results from the use of these type cartridges.

I do apologize for the bad news, but I do ask that you do not shoot the messenger. :-)

ERROR #1203

Error 1203 on a Lexmark is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would suggest you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..

If that doesn't work just call up their support number and check for replacement..
