    966 just hangs up like you said. New driver/old driver/firmware change is no help. I thought it was SP 3 but after two print jobs it does the same thing locks up.

Refilled Ink Cartridge on Dell 966 all-in-one,how do i reset it?

I had this same printer but never was able to reset it. It has some type of sensor on it. That will not let it reset. I was told to unplug it from the computer. Turn the printer off. Reboot the system and plug the USB connector back into it once the system is booted. You may also try to reinstall the printer driver. I also find out that when the printer software says that the ink is low, it really is not. So keep on printing. What I eventually had to do is get a HP. No problem with HP, I can get a refill and it works. Now that I am think about this. See if you can disable the ink monitoring option in the software.
I hope this helps.
Please rate.
