Frankly, between paying for your Premium Assistance Plan or paying a professional small electronics repairman, if I could find one, I figured it would save time and money just to buy a new calculator. I dislike this solution but I don't think I have much choice. I can't find a repairman anywhere. Some services have just become obsolete and that's a shame. Because of "planned obsolescence", I, as well as most other Amerians, now put more items in landfills. Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now. Thank you for your response and for offering a website where people can ask questions of this nature.

I have a TI-5045 II Calculator that wont print

I have the exact same problem (just happended recently) with my TI-5045 II after 25 years of good service. My solution? I just bought another model: Sharp EL-1801V at Stapels for about $31.00. To get the old one fixed will probably cost me $25.00-30.00 just to diagnose, plus shipping and parts and labor. And that assumes I can find a shop to do it, or that TI still stocks the part(s) gone bad. Same old problem with all technology.

Paper tape in my TI 5045, please.

Feed the paper in the back press the paper advance button while pushing the paper in the rear slot, and it should feed the paper through.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
