All you have to do is lift the top cover where the toner goes and remove the toner, now when u look inside you can clearly see the white colr spool or roller. This roller due to usage tends to pop up a little, so with one of ur fingers push it down and u will hear a click noise thats it, clean up if u see any dust load the toner back close cover and ur back in business.
Try to see if the printer will print anything by opening and closing the top door that leads into the toner seven times just open and close, if the printer prints a paper with lines then the printer is working now if the printer doesnt then try to take out the ink, paper and unplug the power cord and let the printer set for about three minutes..
If the printer does prints now it up to the printer spooler itself make sure thier isnt any jobs stuck in the spooler, if there is delete them and also reset the printer spooler, if that doesnt clear them out reset the computer, this will help it, finally when you have that done, do a test page by going into the printer and faxes and right clicking the laserjet 1020 going into properties, and in the general tap click on the test page this should print out a test page. if it does then your printer is up and running.
