Mine did the same thing today. A new stapler would likely be cheaper than sending out the the broken one for repair, if you can even find someone to do it. It appears spare parts are not available, either. If the same part broke on yours as mine, which appears to be their most common failure, you might want to give this a try. Since I lack a TIG welder, I used super glue on the broken tab, to temporarily fix it in the proper position, then built up a bead of JB Weld on the inside. As the operating lever is thin, it doesn't appear to require much space in there. I also used vise-grips to hold it to a piece of thin cardboard, and used more JB on the outside corners, making sure not to get any in the notch where the mainspring sits. Since it's here, I did the same on the un-broken side too, to give it a little more strength. It appears there is enough room still, even with the bead on both inside corners, to allow the lever to disengage properly upon tripping. After it cures, I'll file the outside corners as necessary, to allow it to move freely within the groove in the frame. Hopefully, the cardboard will reduce the amount of filing required. Since this part is subject to high impact forces in use, I plan to add another coat on the inside prior to re-assembly, and fill it in as much as possible without interfering with operation. The first coat is curing as I type this, so I'm unsure if this will work. As cheap as I have been lately, it seems worth a try to me. Nice assembly picture @ http://www.fixya.com/support/t13186938-assembly_diagram_5700_power_shot - if you care to try it.

    update - JB Weld was a no-go. Apparently no match for the spring.

SOURCE: staple gun has staples but quit working.

I hae the same problem. I don't know the real names of the parts so I will make up my own and try to describe them. The problem with mine is that the "hammer" (the piece in front that slams down on the staple and shoots it out) is broken. The "hammer" has two notches that the tension spring (actually a metal bar with two tongs not to be confused with the spring the returns the handle to the at rest position) fits into. One of these notches on the hammer is broken. Therefore one side is not attached to the tension spring the causing the other side to slip off and since the hammer is not connect to the tension spring you get no resistance. Unfortunately I could not find anywhere that sells a replacement peice.

Loading staples


Powershot Pro (Model 8000) Loading staples is pretty much what you would guess,
EXCEPT that releasing the catch takes a very strong pull, or it won't budge at all. Grasp the black plastic catch at the rear of the stapler base, pull very hard (probably 5lbs or more) and the catch will move about 1/4" away from the stapler ("down" if you think of the stapler in its usual orientation.) You can then slide the catch and the spring mechanism "backwards" leaving room to insert staples or brads. (Note, "T-50" staples and brads should fit. If loading brads, they go along the side of the magazine which is closest to the "staples remaining" window.)

Broken part in Stanley Heavy duty Electric Staple/Nail gun


Bought a new one. Stanley hold no spares in this country, so it was cheaper this way! I am disappointed it broke so easily, so soon in its proper life. The part that failed seems poorly designed to me.

Staple gun support


Know the types of staple guns available. They can be manual, electric, battery operated or run by compressed air with an air compressor. Some staple guns have guide wires because they’re used by electricians that can’t pierce wires. Others have long noses to work well in corners and tight spaces. There’s also a reverse built ergonomic staple gun called a "forward action" because the handle and the staple’s exit point are on the same end of the staple gun. Some staple guns can shoot brads instead of staples. Know how each type of staple gun works. This one is so simple because it works just like a stapler. You press and hold the silver latch on the back of the stapler to open the body. Take the tray out and fill it with staples. Then it’s ready to use. Just put the staple ejecting end on your piece to be stapled and squeeze it. There is also the forward action manual gun which is used by pushing the handle down, too. The handle is just located near the staple ejection site. Use an electric staple gun for effortless stapling. There’s no need to squeeze or apply any pressure on these guns. They come with a very short cord so you will always need to have an extension cord with your staple gun. You can also go with a rechargeable battery operated cordless staple gun. They are great but they do run out of steam so for long use one with a cord is better. They’re also pretty easy on the wallet these days, so there’s no reason to go without this in your home tool kit as it’s something that does a lot of jobs. Know the versatility of the staple gun. Whether you have a manual or an electric model, these are some of the most versatile tools out there. You can use them to recover furniture, to build a birdhouse, to staple lattice to a patio, to build lightweight projects like a small knick knack shelf and to do wiring work.
