For about one week I had to unplug our laserjet m1522nf every morning before it would do anything, then it would work fine for the rest of the day. Now, nothing. No sounds, no lights.

This can be caused by a few different things. The first and easiest to test is the outlet it is conected to.
To test that just try another outlet and see if there is a difference.
If there isn't next is to check the power cable with a multimeter and make sure it is sending an electric current to the machine.
If it is not then that cable needs to be replaced.
If it is then unfortunately the power supply unit inside the machine itself has failed and needs to be replaced.
Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace than the machine itself.
