Sometimes Covering up a copper contact on the cartridge helps.To do this,use a small tape or apply small amount of Liquid eraser on the contact point of the cartridge, 2nd row of the contact point (2nd from the left). The error will be cleared and the cartridge will work. If your cartridge is new, i would suggest you to get a replacement instead of doing this. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

My printer will not accept the ink cartridges I have bought because they are not from lexmark it is showing error1203 how do I get around this?


Possible that the ink cartridges are not meshing along with the contacts. Hence the original is important to get the ink cartridges to contact.
Remove and set back the cartridges, if possible remove the printer and reinstall after removing the driver software. If this wont work the original cartridge must be sourced.

I have a lexmark 2580, I keep getting 'unsupported cartridge' message, and one of the lights on the printer is constantly blinking. I have brand new lexmark cartidges installed.


Problem Unsupported Cartridge; Error: "Unsupported cartridge"; Incompatible cartridge error; Incompatible cartridge in the printer; Cartridge not recognized Solution What you will see
When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel.
Affected printers
This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites.
Explanation
The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message.
Solution
Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

Error code 1203


To determine whether this error is due to a cartridge failure or a hardware problem with the printer, do the following: Make sure the printer is powered on. Open the printer's top cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position. Press down on the cartridge lever to raise the cartridge lid. Remove the cartridges. With the cartridges out of the printer, close the top cover. Power the printer OFF and then back ON. Check the operator panel to see if the 1203 error has returned or if a new message is displayed. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support. If the message is Cartridge Missing, reinstall the cartridges into the printer. Insert the black cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the color cartridge in the right carrier. Snap the lids closed. Close the top cover. Check the operator panel. If the 1203 message is still present, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the top cover and check the operator panel. If the 1203 message is displayed, that cartridge is producing the error. If Cartridge Missing is displayed, the second cartridge is the defective item. Please replace the defective cartridge.
