If you open your printer up so you can see the cartridge, you'll see a very thin possibly "SEE" through plastic bar just behind the cartridge holder. Sometimes this bar comes out of the slot behind the cartridge (its called an encoder strip) and it will just need put back in or it may just need a wipe over. If that doesn't work you will have to dismantle it and check that the ribbon cable that connects cartridge holder to the board is secure.

You can refill the cartridges with ink but what they don't tell you is the cartidges can only be use 3-4 times if not less...the electronic package on the cartridge is not designed for multiple use. You may have to install all new cartidges and if the system has been corrupt, you may to uninstall and re-install the device for it to work.

Error Message 1203??


These steps are for a Lexmark 4200, but I suspect they will work for your printer as well:

Cartridge Error: 1203

Your print cartridge has a short.

1. Press Power to turn your All-In-One off.
2. Unplug your All-In-One from the wall outlet.
3. Plug in your All-In-One.
4. Reinstall the cartridges.

If this does not resolve the problem, see More troubleshooting options, or replace your cartridges.
