Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer
Whenever I try to print from my HP 1020 I get a popup message saying "The HP LaserJet 1020 has the front cover door open or the toner cartridge is missing." Neither is the case and my printer has worked for 3 years. Already tried restarting my computer. What can I try. Many thanks.
Had the same problem. Changed cartridge. Still didn't work. I suggest taking out cartridge and examining inside of printer carefully. I found a piece of balloon and a hair tie (aargh!, my kids). Works now.
Just wanted to post this as one more thing to check before junking the printer or spending money on HP support.

I had the same problem. All you have to do is unplug the printer and clean it with a towel. Also, check for any paper or objects that might be jamming the printer.

Thank you for sharing your comments. I had the same problem.
After reading your comments I did the following:
1. Try it with a different cartridge - did not work
2. Reinstalled it - did not work
3. Took all the paperout with a clean tissue cleaned inside - WORKED

I also had the problem and it seemed a piece of paper was jamming it... Took it out and everything's working just fine now. Hope it helped!
