Dell 942 Error 1203

I have inserted a new black ink cartridge in my Dell 942 and have an error 1203. I have tried shutting the printer off for 30 seconds and then back on, have tried removing the cartridge shutting off 30 seconds and then back on, have cleaned contacts on cartridge and within printer with a Q-tip and no luck with that either. Any suggestions??

Error 1203 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..

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
