The error indicates either a communication failure between one of the cartridges and the printer or a short in one of the cartridges. To determine which is causing the problem, follow the troubleshooting steps on this link: http://bit.ly/aDUAjM. Thanks.

Eror 1203 at dell printer? what is this?


I found if you cover a copper contact on the color cartridge the erroe clears and the cartridge works. looking from the contact side for the color cartridhe 2nd row contact 2 from the left. I found if I use an ohm meter from 2nd to 3rd contact I measure 119 ohms. I believe that is a shorted cartridge. If you bought it New I would get it replaced. I use a SMALL square piece of Scotch tape.

Brand new color cartridge. Just opened it and put it in printer. Printer says cartridge erroe #1203



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Hi my name is Hector,on my 2.5 inch display it say cartridge erro error #1203. I checked my users guide it dosnt say anything about error numbers.


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203

It's mean 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 catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a problem and overlook.
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.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. 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.


or try this other option:
