    I'll let you know if the solution works I just need to wait until tomorrow to find out. The reason is because it always happens when the computer is turned back on after being off all night.

Check out this link and go down to where it says "Dell - Firmware" and then go over to the right and click the blue Download link. Run through that (I don't know what it looks like, sorry) and see if it will update your printer firmware. It looks like that is a fix for some job getting stuck in the queue, which sounds similar to the problem you're currently experiencing.

So far answers don't coincide with the directions I've been given, which is "Press the WSB Button for 5 seconds."

The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.

How to Cancel Printing in a Brother HL-2135W printer

Start by pulling the paper tray out to stop further pages being printed without jamming the printer up.

Then go onto your print queue on your computer and delete the job that is printing 50 pages.

If it dissapears then put the paper tray back in and it may print out the last page or two that were in the printer buffer.

If it does not dissapear from the print queue then turn the printer off and try to delete the job again.

Once you have ordered the job deleted then you can turn your printer back on and put the paper tray back in and allow it to continue. It should only print out the last page or two and then the job will dissapear

I cancelled a document while it was printing and it is still in my queue days later as deleting and it wont let me print anything else or restart that print job.

The best way to delete the print job is to turn the printer off, then disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. Turn the printer on with the cables off, and go to your computer and delete the document, Then once it's deleted, turn the printer off again, and then hook the cable back up. Then turn the printer back on. That should do it.

Good Luck

The machine was moved to another location. the message states "close lower side cover" the door is closed. there is a crack in the hinge of the door. i press on the door and nothing happens. ...

Turn the power switch off.
If the printer has an external Ethernet adapter (an additional device that connects the Ethernet cable to the printer -- often this adapter will be a small gray or black box attached to the back of the printer), unplug its AC adapter from the power source.
Save your work and shut down your computer.
Wait a few seconds, plug the Ethernet adapter back in first, and then turn the printer back on.
Turn the computer back on

If the printer remains unresponsive, check the print queue for the printer, there may be other users' print jobs blocking up the queue. To check the queue on a Windows computer, go to Start -> Settings -> Printers and double-click on the printer. On a Macintosh, double-click on the printer on the desktop. If there are numerous print jobs stuck in the queue, cancel any jobs you own. If there are jobs owned by other users, you can contact those users directly or call the Help Desk to request assistance unblocking the queue.

If the queue is empty, try creating a small text file and print to the printer. If this prints correctly, the problem is likely with the other document rather than with the printer.

If the text document does not print, have another user print a small text document from their computer. If this document goes through, the problem may be with your computer rather than the printer.

Windows users should remove the printer by deleting it from Start -> Settings -> Printers and re-add it from its NTPrintServer queue.

Macintosh users can throw the printer in the Trash and reinstall it from the Chooser. If the printer no longer appears in the appropriate AppleTalk Zone, it may have been taken off the network or its AppleTalk name or zone have changed.

AppleTalk printers can occasionally lose their configuration and "forget" their zone. If you no longer see the printer in the appropriate zone in the Chooser, check the Unconfigured zone. If the printer has never been given an informative AppleTalk name, for example if a default name like "HPLaserJet6M" was never changed, there may be more than one printer with that name in the Unconfigured zone. If there are multiple printers with the same name in a zone, they are automatically assigned a number (#1, #2, #3, etc). To figure out which is the correct one, turn off the printer and see which one disappears from the zone. When you turn the printer back on, you will be able to pick out the correct printer.

My printer is on and connected and my computer recognizes it. I selected it when I printed and it says "1 document in queue" but it won't print. How do I fix this?

Delete the document in queue, press Ctrl+Alt+delete at the same time and select 'Task Manager'. If the Print Queue is still appears in 'Applications' select and stop it. Turn off printer and Restart P.C., when P.C. is ready turn on the Printer fingers crossed Print Queue is no longer there. You should be able to carry on printing.
Thumbs up please if this works for you, thanks
