    I believe this is a laser printer , it doesn't have liquid ink in it. Your solution does not apply.

My printer dont print right it skips and i just put a new refill in

It could be due to the refilled cartridge you are inserting in the printer. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade in print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On the printer operator panel, on Copy mode, press the Menu button > Tools > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your refilled cartridges with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

You can try to do the Clean Cartridge function on your printer. While on Copy mode, press Menu -> Tools -> Maintenance -> Clean Cartridges. You can try to insert a known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If your original Lexmark cartridge is faulty, please contact Lexmark technical support and have it replaced. Thanks.

I bought a Cheaper replacement cartridge put it in the printer and the printer says Error#1203 and cartridge error the cartridge is exactly the same as the Lexmark so what is the problem? My printer is...

Hello. The error has something to do with the cartridges. It might be not seated properly, needs cleaning or just low in quality. You can try cleaning the nozzles of the cartridges using a damp paper towel. But, I believe the printer will have its optimum performance when using genuine Lexmark ink cartridges. Good luck!
