Hello,I haven't been able to use my printer for some time and the ink heads are blocked,can you help please?


To clean the cartridge via the operator panel, follow the steps below:
  1. Press the Menu button once. The Photo Menu will appear.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Cartridge (Press SELECT) appears.
  3. Press Select to begin the cleaning process.
  4. When the page has finished printing, press Stop/Clear to exit the Photo Menu.
However, if you have made several tries already yet cartridges are still not printing properly, it may be time for you to replace those old cartridges with new ones.

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.

Lexmark x9350 printer gives error message #1203


I logged into Lexmark's web site and checked their printer support page. It said that if you get error message 1203 your ink cartridge has leaked fluid. In order to find the right cartridge, do the following. Remove both ink cartridges, put in one, turn off the printer, turn it back on and if you get the message 1203 that's the cartridge with the problem. I did not get that message. I turned off the printer, put in the other cartridge, and turned it back on. Sure enough, I got the 1203 message again. (I had cleaned the wrong cartridge before). I removed the leaky cartridge, cleaneded it (making sure I did not leave any residue) and put it back in the printer. It worked!

P315 print cartrige error


What we surmised is that the little wire contacts on the print cartridge were bad. One suggestion was to use a pencil eraser over the area where the small wire dots are on the cartridge, then wipe clean with a lint free cloth. That didn't work either so I exchanged the cartridge and the problem went away.

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..
