Question about Fax Machines

I have a Fellowes PC 50 multiple hole punch which no longer cuts all the holes. It's a mechanical thing and should be easy enough. I have taken it apart and was surprised to see the the cutter is in a wave pattern and the holes that aren't cutting are in the areas where the wave is "shallowest." There doesn't seem to be anything to reset. Can you help? Many thanks! Shauna

It seems to be an alignment problem. Can you help?
    Many thanks!

Is waist collector on a bottom full, if yes empty it.
Second the sticks in cutter can be just stuck try to release them, you might need to put some greese on it, espetially in a place close to handle.
Trird you might need to use a sharpener to make the cutting edges more sharper, it might be a problem too. And finally some of them are designed only for certain amount of paper to cut, try to use less of it to check. Also suppose to be reverse mechanism (some kind of metal spiral thing to return the cutters back it might be jammed or damaged.
Good Luck

Ordered Fuego Multi-Function Task office chair via Office Max online on 6/14/2011. Received UPS delivery of chair on 6/15/2011. However, there are no assembly instructions included. How can I put it...


step 1: press the 5 casters into the holes on the star base (it's a firm press until they snap into place) turn it over so the wheels are on the ground and push the gas cylinder into center hole. place black sleeves over it. set it aside.
step 2: attach armrests to seat base using bolts (I) and washers (K) (the longer and thinner bolts and smaller washers) using the allen wrench supplied.
step 3: attach the seat plate (the thing with the 3 handles) onto the bottom of the seat cushion using bolts (J) and washers (L) ( the fatter and shorter bolts and larger washers) usint the same allen wrench.
step 4: place the set onto the base into the big hole that acceps it. then sit on it to ensure it stays, otherwise when you pick up the chair it will come off the base.
step 5: slide the seat back bar into the groove where the know shows at the back of the seat. you may have to loosen that knob first. when it is in, press the little black plastic button (M) into the hole at the bottom of that seat bar to keep it from sliding out when you pull it up to adjust.
step 6: play with the levers to learn how to do different adjustments.
step 7: congratulate yourself and be proud that you did it!
Oh, make sure all the bolts are tight before putting into use.

I have an older Fellowes 320 Powershred strip cutter. The blades are no longer cutting "deep" enough to produce discrete strips. Can I somehow adjust the blades to restore their cutting...


I am afraid that there is no adjustment for that problem. The cutting cylinders get worn down over time and are unable to cut cleanly . The head assembly can be replaced but it is cheaper to get a new shredder.

I have a scotch brand laminator tl901- it is jammed...and making a clicking noise...is there a way to open the system and try to unjam it?


First, make sure that the unit is unplugged and has sufficient time to cool off. Then remove six screws on the bottom of the laminator. The screw driver shaft must be thin enough to fit into the holes where the screws are located. Two are very easy to find -- one on each side in deep holes. The other four are hidden under small black rubber disks that the laminator rests on. peel up the rubber disks and remove the rest of the screws. At this point it is easy to remove the cover and remove the jam. To replace the cover you must use a thin tool to pull back the release level so it will fit into its opening in the cover. Replace the six screws and you should be able to ready to laminate again.

Brother IntelliFAX 2800 - Paper Jam


It could be one of two things. First and most common is one of the sensors is dirty/stuck and a quick round of compressed air will usually take care of it. This is especially common if you have been running 3 hole punched paper as the loose punches tend to cover sensors. Recycled paper also tends to leave some dusty residue and that will, in time, obscure the sensors, along with a dusty environment or if the machine is on the floor. Another possibility is one of the physical sensors got knocked off course a bit. This could be caused by pulling out jammed paper too roughly or running lots of heavy paper through the unit. I would do a visual inspection for any bent or crooked parts.
