This printer is a MONO laserjet printer meaning it can only print in black colour.

If you want a fax/copy/printer that does colour you would need something like a HP Colour Laserjet 2840.

Try a "hard restart", which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You also might visit the manufacturer's website, to see what solutions are being offered for printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

My 12A cartridge after refilling,giving wet type print


If you are getting smearing then likely the drum is dragging. If you simply added more toner without emptying the waste bin that would be the reason.

Why does my new HP Laserjet 1020 12A cartridge print too light?


It's rare that an original HP would do that? It's more likely that it's a compatible / remanufactured cartridge. is it? Compatibles can be as good as or better than OEM (mine are for example), but there are a lot of "hacks" out there.
Either way, I would return it for a new one, because that is your problem.
