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 proble 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.

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
