Re: remove and ck right cartridge
Once remove both the cartridges from the all-in-one and then clean the copper contacts of the cartridges and then put only black cartridge and check for the message displayed on the all-in-one if it even reads check right cartridge then the issue is with the all-in-one hardware. If it reads insert right or color cartridge then the issue seems to be with the cartridge.
Remove the cartridges from the all-in-one and power cycle the all-in-one and then reset.
Now insert the cartridge and check for the result. If the issue still persists then check the expiry date on the cartridge and once replace the cartridge and check for the result.

Take out the power cable from the back of the printer keep on tapping the power button for 30 secs ; then plug it back. Take out the catridges clean them with a Lint free cloth (copper contacts); also clean the catridge slot of the printer; put in back the catridges ; Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer; press and hol down the (#) and the (6) button simultaneously with one hand and with the other hand put in back the power cable; and then release the (#) and (6) button; It will perform a reset on the printer IF still then it doesn't work then the catridge slot's copper contacts has gone bad and need to replace
I logged into Lexmark's web site and checked their printer support page. It said that if you get error message 1203 your ink cartridge has leaked fluid. In order to find the right cartridge, do the following. Remove both ink cartridges, put in one, turn off the printer, turn it back on and if you get the message 1203 that's the cartridge with the problem. I did not get that message. I turned off the printer, put in the other cartridge, and turned it back on. Sure enough, I got the 1203 message again. (I had cleaned the wrong cartridge before). I removed the leaky cartridge, cleaneded it (making sure I did not leave any residue) and put it back in the printer. It worked!
Time for a new pca carriage. part number C8963-60051. good luck finding one though. All your problems are caused by a stupid little plastic tab that used to hold the metal thing in place. now, it moves around when you put in a cartridge and doesn't make contact with the right circuits. I really hate HP for making such a crappy part and then having no way to replace it. Well, besides sending it to them so they can charge you $215+ to fix it. That's more than what I paid for new!!!
Install a new cartridge or clean the contacts on both the back of the cartridge and the contacts where the cartridge is plugged into, with warm water. Dry both then reinstall. Make sure neither show any damage. I have seen inkjet printers where a small hole is poked into the traces where the cartridge installs into the printer, destroying it.
Some 3rd party cartridges are not perfectly manufactured and in many cases you'll need to press firmly (not hard) on the top front of the cartridge to ensure adequated contact is made wih the electronics on the cartridge and your printer.
