The 1200 error could be caused by a cartridge not properly inserted in the carrier, encoder strip got unseated from its position or there's something blocking the cartridge carrier path. Try to refer to this article in the Lexmark website to determine what's causing this and resolve the problem: 1200

Hello. If the encoder strip just fell off but not broken/ripped apart/torn, try if you can have your hand hook it up back to its place. I believe it just goes back in to a hook on the side. That might be difficult to do though since the hook is all the way to the side and there's not much enough space for your hand to move. But if your printer is still within warranty, try to call Lexmark and hope they can replace it for you. Hope I can assist you more on this.
The 1200 error is caused by a cartridge carrier stall. This can happen if the encoder strip is out
Please follow the steps given below:
1. Turn off the All-In-One by pressing the power button. Open the control panel and cartridge access
2. Gently grasp the cartridge carrier belt in the area indicated by the blue arrow and move it to the
3. On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into.
Remove the print cartridges and then gently push the encoder strip down and then back up to get it
into the slot. NOTE: If the strip is completely out of the slot, it may be necessary to move it
first forward and then back.
4. Reinsert the print cartridges and slide the cartridge carrier back to the right. Then close the
cartridge access door and the control panel and turn the All-In-One back on.
5. Did the error message return?
If Yes, continue to 'Contacting Lexmark' below. If No, the error is fixed.
Lift your printer top, like you are going to change your ink cartridges.
Unplug your scanner & control panel by disconnecting the 3 ribbon cables
Then, you will need a screwdriver (philips head). remove the screws (about 4) from the inside housing cover.
After you have this cover off...
You should be able to see the sides of the cartridge. Take your encoder strip (gently) and thread it through the back of the cartriidges. Note: There are small slits on the side where you can thread.
If the encoder strip has come completely off (there should be tension if it is connected), you will have to located the right and left "pins" to attach it back to. I have a lexmark x-2500 so, mine are on the metal frame. The right end (arrow up) attaches to a metal strip which points straight towards you (a part of the metal frame) with a small notch at the right end and on the left end there's a type of "punchout" pin which is a part of the metal frame. I had to slightly bend the right end pin to the right, just enough to create some tension & keep the encoder strip from popping back off. The left end pin should already be bent out to the left.
