Hi
Error 1203 Dell 962
There can only try and I hope it will do the job for you.

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
Or if you need to do a factory reset

Reset Factory Defaults on the Dell™ 962 Printer
To reset factory defaults on the printer, perform the following steps:
  1. Press the Mode button several times until the Copy LED is lit.
  2. Press the Menu button until Set Defaults is displayed, then press the Select button.

1203


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203
Error 1203 is a very interesting cartridge error. It means your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge

Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.

Hope this helps and please feel free to rate me
