  • Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

  • If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.
    NOTE: The following illustration shows a black cartridge and a color cartridge (used for normal printing). For photo printing, use a photo cartridge and a color cartridge.

    Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

    Printer just has following message Error 1203 consult user's guide" which I do not have


    Error 1203 comes from a refilled ink cartridge.

    Try purchasing the Brand name ink cartridge and the error message should go away.

    Did you replace with Generic Ink or Lexmark Ink Cartridges? See your Printer's Documentation and check to see if your printer will only use Lexmark ink.

    Error 1203 consult user guide, I don't have one. This happen after I change the ink cartridge


    This error means that either the ink cartridge is bad, or the copper contacts between the cartridge and the cartridge slot is bad. Try cleaning them with rubbing alchohol and a q-tip, or try a new ink cartridge.
