Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

The 1203 error indicates either a communication problem between your cartridges and your printer or a short in one of the cartridges. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix the issue:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge. Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Sounds like your card may have went bad. A good way to check this would be to use a different memory card. Hope that helps! Good luck!

Push and hold the 'Start" button after it fires up to turn it off. It should stay off after that. If that doesn't solve your problem then if you have it hooked up via USB cable just leave it unplugged until needed. If you are running it through your WiFi you can always just change your WiFi setting to Manual instead of Auto.

Have you tried plugging it in without surge protector? Also, open front cover and make sure there isn't another power switch in there. Some Lexmark's have a push power button on control panel....but have an actual physical power switch on the inside of the front cover. So it may not be fully powered off. I am a Lexmark Tech, I've seen this on a few models.

I hada the same problem. I used the settings on the actual printer rather than through the software to input the information it needed and It works fine now. I was able to set it up on my husbands laptop without any problems, I just added his laptop through installing the software on his laptops as it had picked up the signal and was showing in the Network and sharing centre on Windows Vista premium. Hope this helps. I think you need to take the wire out now and now load it as wireless. You need to use the wire first to connect then take it out to connect to the wirelss network. My router is a Sky router.

The Lexmark OCR scan software is available in the installation disk that came with the printer. You can explore the installation disk and look for the Abby setup application in the OCR folder (for Windows). For Mac OS, right-click on the Install icon and choose Show Package Contents. Open Contents folder > open Package folder and manually install the Abby Finereader application.
However, if you don't have the installation disk, contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

Annie, did you try to feed it one paper at a time? in many printers the feeder doesn't do a good job separating one paper from the rest.
another thing you can do is to turn off the printer and back on. this might get it out of the stuck status it is in.
did you check there isn't any paper stuck in the feeder?

There is not a Windows 7 driver available for this printer. That said, many devices will function under Windows 7 using the Windows Vista drivers.

Twain drivers are imaging driver which are bundled with complete software.

It is always advisable to clean the computer and reinstall the complete software.
