I replaced the black, cyan & magenta toners. Went to rotate to yellow, and printer skips that color like it doesn't exist. It tells me I need to order yellow, but won't stop on yellow to change the toner.

Re: HP LaserJet 2820
Push the button to align another color and open the door and take notes on where the carousel should be when changing a toner, Not sure why it would bypass yellow altogether but may be resolved by manually changing out the yellow. When you open the door to the toner compartment there should be something on the door that depresses something in the machine which will unlock the carousel and allow you to turn it by hand when you depress the same lever with some type of tool that will fit in the slot. Rotate the carosel until the yellow is where it should be when replaceing it then let go of the locking mechanism and replace the yellow toner. hopefully between changing the toner out and powering the machine off/on will get you back in business... Hope this helps you out and if it does please list as a fixya... if not, you may need to upgrade the firmware and that's not to hard if your on the network already...

Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.
Supplies life The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed. The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times. The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)
I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Color Printer with same issue. Actually,
prints with faded colors or different colors are due the the dust/
toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the
printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. For instance, red
color is formed by a mix of yellow and magenta toners. The color
is replaced by yellow due the the partial or complete blocking of the
image laser beam for magenta as the mirrors which
reflect laser beam get covered with dust and toner (which partially
blocks the laser beams). Hence the image is
not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer. Note
that first magenta goes off, followed by
yellow, then cyan and lastly black. This is due to the mirrors
placement inside the printer. Magenta is the last one facing upwards at
45 degrees angle and gets most of the dust and goes off first.
assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which
are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer
serviced by any printer repair/ service professional.
(Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such
printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily
especially the mirrors).
Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know Good Luck! CreativeTECH
Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.
So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)
On the topmost part of the printer, there are four buttons in the following order (top to bottom): Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow.
Besides the four button is another button with 4 dots (Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow with a rotating arrow), press this once and you will see that the Yellow button on the left will light up, press it again and the light besides Magenta will light up and so on. Anyway, you get the idea.
Just keep on pressing it until the light besides Yellow lights up again. When it does, lift the top cover of your printer and insert the yellow toner.
Hi, i have the same printer and regularly get this problem. Open the top cover and rotate the cartrige that is on top slightly backwards towards the back of the printer. Once you turn the printer on again this usually solves the problem
There is a gray button right of the LCD display that has a black arrow circling clockwise and four color dots (magenta/black/cyan/yellow). Push it until you see the "Rotating to Yellow" in the LCD display, then open up the top of the printer by pushing the big gray latch next to the picture card reader at the right front of the printer. You now have access to the cartridge. pull it out and examine it. If it is a new cartridge, check to see if you pulled the plastic dam strip out (which keeps the toner in place in shipment etc).
