Lexmark Printer 7170 - Error 1203

I have misplaced the Guide Book and have no idea what this message means. It will not print. It keeps flashing this message - something to do with Cartridge. Can someone please suggest or provide the information for this error so I can get it back up and running? Thanks - NS

My lexmarkp4350 is not printing the black ink


Ok this some times works.


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.




Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error Message 1203??


These steps are for a Lexmark 4200, but I suspect they will work for your printer as well:

Cartridge Error: 1203

Your print cartridge has a short.

1. Press Power to turn your All-In-One off.
2. Unplug your All-In-One from the wall outlet.
3. Plug in your All-In-One.
4. Reinstall the cartridges.

If this does not resolve the problem, see More troubleshooting options, or replace your cartridges.

Error 1203


You can try testing your Printer with another Print Cartridge and if the error message repeats, you should contact Service Center as then there would be a Hardware Problem.
