Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer. Remove the used cartridges. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to the power source.

1203 error indicates a defective cartridge is detected. It would be best not to use your burnt black cartridge anymore to prevent further damage to the printer. Try to replace it with a new genuine cartridge. However, if error continues even with a new cartridge, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

1.Disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer.

2. Hold down the Stop/Clear button. (To the right of the Black Copy button.)

3.While keeping the button pressed down, reconnect the power cable. A message on the LCD will display MEMORY CLEARING.
Note: The Fax, Copy and Scan buttons will remain ON until the message disappears. Only the Fax button should be ON when the function is complete.

Thanks for using Fixya.

You can adjust the quality and darkness on the front panel
Depending on the type of document you are trying to copy:
Select the type to one of the following.


Specify the type of document in the ADF:

  • Text and graphic (default)
  • Photo
  • Text only
  • Line drawing
If that does not produce the quality desired, try adjusting the Lightness / Darkness setting.

If the problem is with all copies, the optical scanner may need cleaning.

Improving print quality If you are not satisfied with the print quality of your document, make sure you:
  • Use the appropriate paper for the document.
  • Use paper that is a heavier weight, bright white, or coated.
  • Select a higher print quality:
  1. From your software program, click File onestep.gif Print.

The Print dialog box appears.

  1. From the Print dialog box, click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  2. From the Quality/Speed area, select Better or Best.
Cleaning the scan lens and white roller If you notice poor image quality in scans, faxes, or copies, you may need to clean the scan lens and the white roller.
  1. Unplug the power cord and the phone line from the wall.
  2. Open the control panel.
  3. Pull the roller lever forward, and then lift the white roller out of the All-In-One. aremvrol9.jpg

Note: The scan lens is located under the white roller.

  2. Reinstall the white roller.
  3. Reconnect the power cord and the phone line.

Hope this helps, Jim

If you downloaded the driver for the x4200 series then that is alright. But to make sure redownload the driver and reinstall it. After that unplug the USB connector to your computer and then restart the computer. Wait until you have gone into windows and logged in before plugging back the usb connector. Wait for windows to acknowledge the connection by showing an installing device message or by a series of tones. Check on your printer devices if your printer is online. Try printing a test page. If you are still getting a problem make sure to jot down the error message you are getting and get back to us here at fixya.

The line is probably not from the ink cartridges or nozzles (assuming regular printing doesn't streak). Streaks on copies and transmitted faxes are usually due to dirt or problems on the scanner unit. First clean the flat bed of the scanne. If you have an automatic document feeder, clean that.

Clean with a lint free cloth moistened with a little water or glass cleaner. Make sure no foreign objects are in the ADF path or on the glass. For pictures see the Lexmark support site: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1. Then enter "streak on copy" - the solution comes up in a pop up.

If the streak is shrinking, then copy a blank white piece of paper to identify where to clean further. Try scanning another page with a small mark on it. (These are particularly helpful for cleaning the ADF.)

If the mark occurs when you print, then check if you have a damaged cartridge or other ink that has spilled inside the printer.

I hope this helps.
