Default Printing black pages

I have an HP Laserjet P1102w. I've placed a new cartridge (85a) in it and attempted to print. The job goes to the printer and the paper goes through, but it is blank. No toner makes it to the paper.
Any thought?

When it happens here, it's usually because someone forgot to remove the strip separating the toner powder from the roller handy pull-tab on the side
