ok, ive actually been working on my printer certifications at work, so i can actually help you :-P on some printers you need to manually reset the toner light, go to ur manual and look up exactly how (not postive myself as im currently working on certifying myself with brother printers) and if u dont have the manual they have them all online at hp.com somewhere, might take a bit of searching though

Bahh!!! I cant find the stupid thing to reset my toner. Is there any other printers that you know how to reset the toner... It might just work for this one.

You could try deleting and resinstalling the printer drivers.

lol, i just looked up your printer, when you said toner i thought you ment something like a more powerfull almost commercial printer (sry, that was my stupid assumption cause those are the ones ive been tryin to get certified on lol) i just looked up ur printer online and read the manual on changing cartradges, it says it will auto register the new ink, so what i would do is get a clean cloth, spray some windex on it, then clean the contacts on the back of the cartridges, that should do it that is unless you're using something other then hp brand cartridges, if so the light might stay on cause wierd stuff happens sometimes when you use "generic" brand cartridges
