Noticed you message while searching for answers to repairing another Lexmark printer. You probably already have the answers by now but here is what the manual says.

Hardware Error: 1200

The All-In-One is stalled.

1. Press Power to turn off your all-in one.

2. Unplug your all-in-one fro the wall outlet.

3 Check for paper jams.

4 Plug in your all-in-one

Cartridge Error: 1200

The cartridge carrier is jammed.

1. Turn off you all-in-one

2. Unplug the all-in-one form the wall outlet.

3. Open the control panel.

4 Open the cartridge access door

5. Make sure the cartridges are snapped in place in the carrier.

6. Check for objects obstructing the carrier.

7. Plug in your all-on-one

8. Press power to turn your all-in-one back on.

Hope this resolves your issues.

The ultimate fix for this problem is to give your Lemark and Dell printers to people that you really dislike. Let them live with the frustration. Then buy yourself a Hewlett Packard, Canon, or Epson printer. Check the cost of the cartridges for each brand prior to making a purchase. Purchase the printer with the least expensive cartridges and one that will take the generic (compatible) cartridges available in retail stores and refill stores. My personal favorite are the Epsons. They print excellent colors and are very affordable to own, and most important, operate.




Let me know if it works?

Hi, i'm getting error message 1203 on the printer and we've lost the user's manual. Can you tell me what this is?


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203



Error 1203 is a very interesting cartridge error. It means your cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge


Solution:
I use the lint free cloth(coffee filter work great) with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of lint free cloth(coffee filter work great on those holder contact panel.

Dell 926.... the printer will not acknowledge that a new cartridge has been put in. It will not work. previously had the error code 1203, a short circuit in print head. That has now disappeared. Help...


Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
or
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Dell Printer 926 Error 1203 "Print Head Short"


Error code 1203 means that you have a print head short error. The way to fix this is to:
1) Clean the contacts on the cartridge w/ a damp cloth. Only do it in one direction so that you're not smearing ink all over the contacts!
2) Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord from the wall and from the back of the printer. Wait about 30 seconds, and then plug everything back in.
If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the ink cartridges...you can always try it one more time just to be sure

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.
