Question about Panasonic Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

We have a Panasonic AS-300N electric stapler that only works some of the time. When it doesn't work, we put the paper in the slot and nothing happens. Sometimes if we unplug it and plug it back in, it will staple once and then not staple again. Do you have any ideas of what might be causing the problem? Does the little plastic lever tell the machine to staple or is there another type of sensor. Thank you, Dean

    Thank you. The plastic lever returns just fine. I think you are saying that there is another sensor that tells the machine to staple. Where is it located and what does it look like? Thanks again.

Yes the plastic lever triggers the sensor, it may not be going back in place. It is supposed to have a spring like action, so that when you remove the paper it goes back to it's original position. check and see if it gets stuck, or maybe try blowing on the sensor , could be dirty.

    no, I was talking about the one you mentioned,

    try this, unplug and plug in and staple : does it staple when the white plastic is triggered?

    you may have to take off the covers to see the mechanism and diagnose it better.

    1-either the sensor is dirty ( the white plastic piece is just a flag, ittriggers the sensor depending on the position it is in)

    2-or the board is

Where can I get a couple Panasonic AS-500 Commercial Staplers repaired? Have tried calling Panasonic at 1-800-405-0652 option 4 but got nowhere.


This is a rather rare request, as very few places fix staplers.
I should recommend you find a "handy-man", maybe an older person with a hobby, and he may be able to help you.
I fix staplers, but have only been successful about 50% of the time.
God bless your efforts.

How do I make the Optima 20 electic stapler model 48208 work after putting in the staples. I put the paper in as usual and it does not work. I have put the staples in correctly as I normally do, but


Unplug it, take it apart and examine the switch actuator and switch to see why they don't trigger the stapler. There's a good chance you'll find the actuator is broken or jammed by a foreign object, or the switch is worn out. Metal-filled epoxy works well for repairing ABS plastic parts.
Another possibility is a broken power cord. You can test the electrical parts for continuity with an ohmmeter (unplugged, of course!).

Grandson put a penny into the SD slot while the TV was on. It immediately stopped working.


This happened to me yesterday. My daughter put a penny and a dime in the SD slot and none of the buttons or volume were working on my TV.Only the power button would work.
I fixed it by simply removing the penny and dime out of the SD slot and then i held the power button for 10 seconds. After I unplugged the TV from its power source for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. When I turned the TV back on everything was back to normal.
For a second I thought I was going to have to buy a new TV, lol. Hope this helps. If it doesn't work the first time then try it a second time.
By the way I have a Panasonic PT-52LCX66 LCD Projection TV..

I have a bostitch stanley desk top stapler model # 02210, it will not activate the staple when you put the paper in it, does that little trigger in there have a spring on it because it will not return to...


The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.

Panosonic Electric Stapler does not staple paper!


It could be either jammed up with staples or the spring mechanism is shoddy.

Nothing happens when you load paper to staple. It is a swingline electric stapler model 270


assuming it is plugged into a good power source and turned on (no offense intended, just getting the obvious out of the way - and I've fallen victim to the obvious myself before), look inside where you put the paper - is there a trigger mechanism? Most electric staplers have them (the paper hits the trigger and the stapler fires), and some allow you to set the sensitivity of the trigger. If yours allows you to adjust the sensitivity, try adjusting it. If it's not adjustable, the trigger probably needs to be replaced (under heavy use, they may need to be replaced every year or so).
