Hi, i'm getting error message 1203 on the printer and we've lost the user's manual. Can you tell me what this is?


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 cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge


Solution:
I use the lint free cloth(coffee filter work great) 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 cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges 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 lint free cloth(coffee filter work great on those holder contact panel.

Dell all in one printer 964... Error message 1203... What does this mean? I recently had the ink refilled at Walmart. The printer did work after the ink was refilled, but now it's being very odd and will...


Hi there

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.

Prenter 926 shows error 1203


A 1203 error usually involves some type of cartridge problem.

Did you recently change a cartridge out? If so, did you use a factory new ink cartridge by Dell?

If you did not, then that could be your problem.

Dell Printer 926 Error 1203 "Print Head Short"


Error code 1203 means that you have a print head short error. The way to fix this is to:
1) Clean the contacts on the cartridge w/ a damp cloth. Only do it in one direction so that you're not smearing ink all over the contacts!
2) Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord from the wall and from the back of the printer. Wait about 30 seconds, and then plug everything back in.
If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the ink cartridges...you can always try it one more time just to be sure
