What has most likely happened is part of a staple is stuck in the front portion of the stapler where it forms the staple and presses it into the stapler.
You would most likely have to remove the stapler, and remove the binding staple from the stapler head.

How do I prevent Rapid 5080e stapler from jamming


Make sure that the tray for the staples is clean and LIGHTLY oiled, Staples are held together with glue. IT could also be an issue with the wear on the staple head driver. If you use it a lot, the unit might be worn to the point that it is out of spec.

There could be a piece of a broken staple jammed in the stapling mechanism. I checked mine and there are two screws on the bottom that can be removed to expose the interior. The broken staple jam occurs often with mechanical staplers so the electrics probably have similar failures.

How do I open the staple compartment? Already tried the back button


Pushing the button should eject the staple compartment from the front of the unit. It sounds as if the stapler compartment is jammed or corroded.
While pushing the button, attempt to pull the compartment from the front of the stapler. It should slide out like a drawer. Try pulling on the front of the compartment while applying a little pressure in different directions.
You may have to use a small tool to grab the compartment if you can't get a good grip. You may have to use some force. Use only as much pressure as you're comfortable with.
When you do open the compartment, inspect all moving parts and bearing points to be sure nothing is jammed, bent, corroded or seeing excess wear. Remove a jam with small pliers, being sure to get the entire staple. Use fine sand paper on corrosion and then treat with a bit of oil.

Someone loaded regular staples into our Swingline 45 Optima now it will not work when loaded with the correct staples.


Using the wrong or style ofstaples, overfilling the machine and stapling through too-thick materials can causeOptima to jam. Now follow these steps: 1. Holdthe base down as you lift the top of the Optima stapler to access the stapletray. 2. Removeall the staples from the tray so that you have access to the jammed staple. 3. Turnthe stapler upside down and shake it to clear out staples you can't reach withyour fingers. 4. Gripthe jammed staple with the needle-nose pliers and, while holding the staplersecurely, pull it up. 5. Twistthe staple until it breaks into two pieces if it will not pull straight out.Pull out the two individual pieces. The Optima stapler line bySwingline is designed to be jam-free when Optima premium jam-free staples areused. Using another , style or brand may cause frequent jamming. Hope thiswill help you. Good Luck.

I had the same problem with my 690. This is what worked for me.. I simply pulled out the staples from the cartridge a little further than the suggested tear-off point, and the machine was able to start working. Hope this helps!

A staple jammed in the moving part (driver?) when using to staple. How do I clear the jam?


first remove the the spring loaded rod that keeps the staples in place and tight, if you can see any part of the jammed staple , grab it with pliers or vice grips and pull it out any way you can , might be more than one staple jammed too, turn stapler upside down to dump out any loose staples and debris , keep working until she frees up , if you still cant get it out might have to loosen screws up that hold it together, a little light lubricant will be good for it too . then load it back up with staples and put tension rod back in, i always try to keep it full of staples at all times ,like when it gets 2/3 empty , fill it up, this will ensure good tension on the business end of the staples!!

My Swingline Optima Power Ease will not staple, nor can I open it to try to find out why. There are staples in there, but it feels like there are no springs


This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.

Panosonic Electric Stapler does not staple paper!


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

Instructions on unjamming swingline electric stapler model 270; jam is at the front of the stapler; staplers come out either broken, flaten or crooked and does not secure document.


First, are you using the recommended staples for this stapler? Many heavy duty electric staplers don't use "standard" desk staples. Second, try unplugging the stapler, unloading the staples, and if possible, reach a couple of fingers into the stapler and try manually pushing up on the staple head to see if you can get the driver blade to come down. Does it come down smoothly, or does it seem like there is something stuck in there? If you aren't sure about disassembling the unit (my usual method-but I'd recommend having the parts diagram handy), try using a flashlight to look at the underside of the staple head, where the staples come out - can you see anything stuck in there? If so, you might be able to use a small knife blade or small dental pick to get jammed staple pieces out.
