I just had to repair one of these guns for work. It's a bit tricky, seeing as you are dealing with springs and such...but it can be done. Take your time ...don't set the springs until you have things set in place and lined up. Make sure the pins are in place. Set the flat spring first (it is the toughest) while the handle is depressed all the way in. Gently open the handle and then set the torsion spring. Take your time here...springs are set and they could make all the pieces fly out if you don't quickly get the other half put on it. Hope this helps.8d59edb.jpg

"LOVENHEIM" was right on the money. I found difficulty in aligning the white plastic bumper (between the frame and the flat spring). When I looked at the inside of the other half of the cassing, I realized that there was a slot into which the bumper must fit when the two halves were brought together. I then was able to fit the bumper correctly. One other thing, you must remember to fit the staple holder before putting the two halve together. The exploded diagram was invaluable and I could't have made the repairs without it. Thanks Lovenheim.

Could somebody PLEASE reload the picture or diagram? The original is lost and Fixya support doesnt seem to be interested in finding it.

From the number of readers and reporters of this problem, it is obviously a widesprea one, so, I join in with my voice shouting........

HELP...diagram needed!!!!!

My solution was to buy a new staple gun. They are $20.00 at The Home Depot. The time it would take me to figure out how to put it back together was worth the Jefferson note to buy a new one. I kept all the parts so I'll work on it someday.

Hello, there. Attached is the PowerShot 5700 manual. We could only upload in JPEG format, but if you would like the PDF version, please email us at When you say "reassemble," do you mean the whole tool or the magazine part? We do not recommend disassembling the PowerShot 5700 completely.

Need the diagram of the exploded view of my senco staple gun

without any other information I can't help, but you can go to and they have a section for downloads and manuals. You will need your complete model number and be sure to check in the older tool section if you can't find it. If you still have trouble get back with me with the tool information and I will check.

No instructions came with the stapler and the . I can't get it open to install staples! I need this now. You start a project and can't get what you need! I was expecting more from a product...

Open the PowerShot staple gun staple chamber. This is found on the front of the staple gun. There is a small metal area on the bottom. Pull down on this and the interior of the staple chamber is revealed.
  • Remove any existing staples that may be in the chamber. These can be pried out with your fingernail, or you can turn the staple gun upside down and gently shake the staples loose.
  • Slide a new row of approved staples into the PowerShot staple gun. These need to be slid in from the base of the staple gun (where you pulled the cover of the chamber off).
  • Close the cover to the PowerShot staple gun's staple chamber and you are ready to use your staple gun on the next household project.

    Don't know how to load staples in my powershot pro

    Usually a black tab toward the back of the staple gun.
    Push in, pull up and pull out.
    Push rod, spring and assembly should slide out easily.
    You can then reload as needed.

    Push in, pull up and when the push rod bottoms out push down.
    This usually locks the tab back in place. Do this a few times and you will get the feeling pretty quick.

    Good luck!

    Need a detailed dwg. of the powershot 5700

    I would recommend calling your local Black and Decker/Dewalt center and getting a schematic. I checked online and they list the tool but the schematic is not available to view online. If you still have problems let me know and I will see what I can do with the center near me. I deal with just about daily.
