Error Message 1203??

I keep getting error message 1203 pop up on my printer and I can't it out. It says to go to the user guide but that would be all fine except error 1203 does not exist in the user guide. There aren't any codes to go by. It also was telling me that there is a missing cartridge in there and there isn't, i have a color cartridge and a black cartridge, they are both in there the way they should be. I even tried to uninstall it and then re-install the printer. It still won't work. It won't print at all the only thing that it will print is alignment stuff. Since it started saying "Error 1203" it won't let me do anything at all. When I hit the "X" it says "NOT ALLOWED." PLEASE HELP ME!!!

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.

SOURCE: My Lexmark says cartridge error 1203 -- see

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would request you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
If that doesnt work just call up their support number and check for replacement..

Error 1203


You can try testing your Printer with another Print Cartridge and if the error message repeats, you should contact Service Center as then there would be a Hardware Problem.
