SOURCE: staple function
You do n ot need to enter the Service Tech code to ajust finishers. In fact that code should rarely be entered.
Is the option available while copying?
If it in the driver, select the greyed out option and let the driver inform you of the problem/setting.
Has the finisher been identified in the "instaled options" tab of the driver?
Normally, the driver or panel will indicate what the conflict is if any. If all these have been set correctly, contact whomever installed this finisher and have them do it properly.

SOURCE: Staple problem
Assuming your copier actually has a stapler, I would think you would have checked that, then the driver is probably not set up to recognize the stapler.
click Start->control panel>printers and faxes>(your printer name)>printer>properties>device settings. There should be a button labeled something like "auto configure". click that and it should discover all the options attached to your copier. When it is done click on whtever it asks youto accept and click apply. The picture to the left should also look exactly like your copier. (Sometimes the auto configure fails in which case you will have to set all the options manually, you can use the image as a guide until it looks right. )

I believe you have to identify the accesories that are on the copier. I think you go to the printers section of the control panel on Windows. Right click the copier, select properties, then device settings. Look to see if you can change any of the options. If not you may have to reinstall the print drivers. Hope this helps.

Here are the instructions for duplex printing.
The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
If a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
If Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
Duplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
When Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
