    I'm getting the error message "Unsupported ink cartridge" all of a sudden. It was working fine and I hadn't touched the cartridges.

  • impozter Jul 05, 2008

    My dell 924 has been working fine, I just printed several pages a couple days ago. I got the message "left cartridge incorrect" I checked the cartridge, I noticed that the sticker on the top of the cartridge looked like it melted and half of it was gone, not sure. I cleaned the cartridge and tried many combinations of removing and installing and powering off and on. When I take out the color cartridge says "clear the carrier jam" Anyways it wont work! Looks like this is a common problem, any ideas? thank you

    I have dell all in one 924 printer . I am getting error code 1203. My connections all seem to be good and I have played around with the ink cartridges themselves, I have also had them refilled. Nothing seems to clear the code . Anyone know what to do?

ERROR 1203 LEXMARK ERROR 1200 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.

Error code 1203 for a dell photo 924 printer


Hello thanks for using FixYa
Error code 1203 means that you have a print head short error

By this solution you may fix it

  • Clean the contacts on the cartridge with a damp cloth. To make sure that you are not smearing ink all over the contacts do it only in one direction.
  • Now disconnect and then reconnect the power cord from the wall and from the back of the printer and then wait about almost 30 seconds,and then plug everything back in.
If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the ink cartridges. But most of the time this error remove by it so you can try it one more time just to be sure.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

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.

The ink is printing out fine, but in cartridge warning window says they are empty, and then stopped printing saying to remove cartridges. Now printer has error of 1203 and won't work. It won't shut off,...


Try to remove the Ink Cartridge while printer is on then install it back after a minute. If you still getting the same error, possible the Ink Cartridge or Printer is faulty.

Dell 924 dell printer head ;error 1203;change cartri... sane problem.help|| black will print but color wont print' correct cartridge is inserted ,still color wont print. warning was ignore that ink was low


Hey do a power drain by removing all the cables from the rear of the printer and then hold the power button on the printer of 15-20seconds with all the cable out connecting the printer... Then power on the printer if you still see the error code message displayed on the printer display screen do a nozzle clean in the computer, check on if the printer prints the nozzle clean test page perfectly.If not remove the cartridges and clean the nozzle of the cartridges with a clean cloth and be careful so that you do not destroy the copper contacts, clean the same you see on the carrier(where you place on the cartridges). I think this should work.
If not call in technical support.

Dev,
Printer Technician.
