    Same problem. Went through all of the motions with HP product support. The following is my chat log with them, well the end of it anyway. Bottom line, they think it's dead!:

    Bill: yes, however, I am having troubl getting at the contacts on the housing
    Stewart: Let us reset the All-in-Oneto factory default setting.
    Stewart: Note:
    A semi-full reset will do the following:
    The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information
    Stewart: Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

    1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

    2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

    Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.
    Bill: that's fine. I do not have the cartridges replaced yet though
    Bill: do you still want me to proceed or wait until I get the cartridges in there?
    Stewart: Please follow the steps and let me knwo the result.
    Bill: The Carriage is to the extreme rigt side of the unit and it is very difficult to replace the cartridges.
    Bill: Very difficult as in there may be breakage forcing them back in
    Bill: Is itnecessary to have the cartridges in there to do a factory reset?
    Stewart: No problem
    Stewart: Please perfrom the steps with Out the cartridges.
    Bill: OK, give me a few
    Stewart: Fine
    Bill: OK, got a semi full... message that is
    Stewart: Okay
    Stewart: Please turn off the All-in-One
    Stewart: And turn on
    Bill: now there is a blank LCD screen and 4 flashing lights
    Bill: no movement in the carriage
    Stewart: Do you see any mesage on the All-in-One now.
    Bill: none
    Stewart: Okay
    Stewart: Please insert the cartridges back .
    Bill: OK, once again... this is very difficul and is only possible by forcing the cartridges and bending plastic pieces within the unit past the engineers specs I'm sure.
    Stewart: Okay
    Stewart: I appreciate your patience and efforts in performing all the troubleshooting steps provided. I am sorry to inform you that we have tried all the possible troubleshooting steps that should resolve the issue. However, the issue at hand seems to be with the hardware malfunction of the unit.

My Lexmark printer is showing 122.03 service fusher error what can i do

This error normally requires a service call. However, certain rare occurrences, such as a a power fluctuation or a stray static discharge in the vicinity of the printer, can cause a false 122.03 error message to appear. In these cases, the error is only temporary and can be easily resolved without service. Follow the steps in the table to test this.
Step Action 1
Power the printer off, wait ten seconds, and then power the printer back on.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to step 2.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly. 2
If possible, connect the printer's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can generate false error messages.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to Contacting Lexmark below.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly.

Turn on printer and light continues to flash. Not

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:

• The printer cover is open.
• The printer is out of paper.
• A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print cartridge.

If an error message appears
Read the error message that explains the problem and its solution.

If no error message appears
Check the status of the printer by using the printer tools. To gain access to the tools, open the Printer Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click the Service this device button.

Use the printer tools to perform the following tasks:
• View estimated ink levels.
• Clean the print cartridges.
• Calibrate the printer.
• Print a test page.
• Perform other functions as needed.
