Just pushing this back to the top since it's still not solved and valid. Both: Apple & HP you should be ashamed of this whole story. Sad.
This printer is now several years old. Just how long do you expect HP to support this device? Until you are good and ready to buy something else? Forever?
I own a HP 1022 and I accept that time moves on. New models come out. Support isn't for life. I too am not happy about how HP has chosen to support OS X Snow Leopard. There are a number of their printers that have problems with Snow Leopard. It is not Apple's fault. They don't build HP's printers. They don't write HP driver software. Apple's documentation is available to device manufacturers so they can make their products compatible. Apple will usually work with manufacturers if asked. So this is entirely on HP's back. And they choose to support OS X only half-heartedly.
As for me I will vote with my wallet. My next printer will not be a HP product. My singular response will not change anything but if a lot of Mac users make the same decision it will get HP's attention. Money talks and bullshît walks.
I don't know if this can help, but I solved my problem (pages 1,5,9... printed when I expected 1,3,5,7,9 etc. and then all the three leds flashing on the printer panel) installing the Foomatic HP Laserjet 1022 driver.
At least for what I print mostly, it works... I can print all the odd pages and then all the even ones to have double sided printing; I know, it's more useful to have a double sided printing which is driven by software, but I was already used to "manual double sided printing" when I used Linux.
I hope my post will help at least people who experienced my problem... I don't have any clue about other kinds of issues (and I know they're several), sorry
The latest drivers from Apple Software update do not fix the issue of printing more than 1 page.
Use the Foomatic/HPijs/Ghostscript combo from here
I'm still having problems.
Printer: LaserJet 1022
Connection: USB directly to computer
Driver Version: 220.127.116.111
Apps: mostly PDF printing from Preview
Problem Description: Intermittent problem with only printing every other page. Occasionally all lights flash after a print job and the printer has to be turned off and on again. When several jobs are queued up, the next job will not begin until one minute after the previous job has finished. Rarely, when the printer has to be turned off and on again, the job will be printed again after turning the printer on again, even though it has already printed. I have also seen the issue where one page is blank, but only once or twice.
I am currently in the third year of a maths and computer science degree at the University of Bristol and I am happy to help with testing.

Jada3, you are not the only one having problems with the HP Laserjet 1022. After about a year of loud protests on this forum, a year without any official reaction from either HP or Apple, angry users seem to have given up. Not one of the suggested 'solutions' on this forum gives us back what we had before Mac OS X 10.6: reliable printing and manual duplex printing. Apple's latest HP-update via Software Update is a disaster for the 1022. Manufacturers don't seem to care, I suppose they expect us to throw our 1022's out of the window and buy new stuff. If that is necessary, please give us, users of the 1022, an explanation. The way this issue has (NOT) been handled or explained makes me very angry.
I have a similar problem with my HP Color Laserjet 2600n.
Printer: HP Color Laserjet 2600n
Connection: USB connected to Airport Express Atheros 5424:18.104.22.168
Driver Version: HP Color Laserjet 2600, 22.214.171.1241
Problem Description: Printer Queue goes into Pause Mode and won't resume printing.
Does the fact that the Printer Driver doesn't have an "n" after the 2600 mean that it is not designed for networking?
I had the same problems despite having had no issues at all until 10.6.5 (ignoring previous issues under other versions of OSX.
I have gone back to Gimp Print - seems to work for me.
I have a HP laserjet 1022, and I'm able to get it to print reliably, and also do duplex/two-sided printing without problems.
Step 1: Select "HP1022 Gutenprint v5.2.3" as the driver (...I found that the 126.96.36.1991 driver only prints one page and then cause the lights on the printer to blink)
Step 2: go to this link to download software for the "two-sided printing software" - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-88750-2 &lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=219&product=5038006&sw_lang=
If link doesn't work:
a) Go to http://www.hp.com, click on "Support and drivers", tick the "download drivers and software" option and type in "two-sided printing"
b): On the results page, click on the "Two-sided printing software" option; and on the next page, click on "software & driver downloads"
c): Select "Mac OS X" as your operating system and click on "next"; then click on "drivers", then click on "HP Two-Sided Printing Software"
d): Download and install the software.
a) To do two-sided printing, click on "PDF" and select "two-sided printing".
b) The first time you ask the printer to do a duplex print job, instructions will appear on the screen indicating the system needs to be configured.
Follow the instructions on the screen:
First, select the picture that describes where the in-tray of your HP printer is - for HP 1022, it is the third option from the left;
Second, the printer will then print a page with a square, and you'll be asked to feed the paper back in the in-tray and click "continue"; the printer will then print a triangle on the other side of the paper.
When all this is done, the system is configured and ready to do two-sided printing.
Good luck all!
