The Canon DR-7580 staple detection system is designed to detect a page rising up as it begins to enter the scanner. If pages are stuck together for any other reason, and causes the paper to lift as it gets pulled into the scanner, it will trigger "staple detected". If you look on either side of the paper tray, on the vertical metal sides, you will see a slot. there are a series of small photo sensors that look from one side to the other, and this sensor works much like an automatic garage door sensor...if something gets in it's path and breaks the signal, it stops the scanner. You can adjust the sensitivity (height of detection), or turn it off all together. *Note: When staple detection is used, paper curl must be 3 mm or less in height and creased paper cannot be fed.
To adjust the sensitivity, you can go into the user feature as such:
1) When the machine is in the standby state,
press the NEW FILE key and Count Only key
simultaneously. During the user mode, the
LEDs of the NEW FILE key and Count Only
key illuminate and the address (U01-U10)
and data (the last digit) appear on the
counter display.
2) When changing the address, use the NEW
FILE key. Each time NEW FILE is pressed,
the address changes, cycling from U01 to
3) When changing the data, use the Count Only
key. Each time Count Only is pressed, the
data changes.
4) Pressing the Stop key exits the user mode.
*U06 = Strength for staple detection
0 = Staple detection Weak
1 = Staple detection Middle
2 = Staple detection Strong

This has to do with a problem with the stapler unit in the finisher. The book says that the stapler unit is not being detected to be in the home position. See that the staple cartridge is not out of place and the stapler unit is free to move back and forth.

I have a staple gun and when I pushed the trigger the staple it metal so now it's bent in the gun and part of the way out. How do I get it out?

When this happens, you have to release spring pressure against the staple strip then invert the staple gun and BEING ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT THE STAPLE OPENING IS NOT POINTED TOWARD YOU use pliers or a similar tool to remove all of the damaged staple. Reinsert the staple strip, point the gun away from you and test operation.

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.

    I get a Staple Detect error each time I try to scan a page. I've checked all of the rollers; they are fine. There are no staples anywhere in the picture. Can I turn Staple Detection off?

    I presume you are using CpaturePerfect3 Scanning software. There is an option to stop checking of 'staples'.
    In Canon 9080C staples are NOT detected by any metal detector! You'd notice a set of LEDs on one side and a set of sensors on the opposite side of the scanner wall, just above the paper tray. Incase there is a document thats stapled, while one sheet is going in, the other sheet will get lifted because of staple. Thus when there is obstruction in the LED sensor, it is presumed to be a stapled document. Conversely, even if a document is bent enough to block the sensors, the scanner assumes it as a stapled document. Ensure your documents are fairly flat.

    My gun will not shoot staples after loaded I thin there is a part missing

    Staple gun are simple device and the 'shooting' mechanism is just a sring loaded bar that hammers the staple out: the problem is usually a jam/stuck staple where the staple in the orifice where the staple comes out. Just use a small screwdriver and /or plier to remove the stuck staple which could be jammed against the hammer bar. You may need to force the hammer bar backwards with the help of your small flat head screwdriver.

    Hope it helps!

    Staple Gun Troubleshooting

    Most of the staple gun models lack an "anvil" — the metal plate with curved slots that office staplers use to bend the legs of the staple inwards and flattens them against the paper. Staples set with a staple gun retain their straight legs, and are held in place only by static friction of the legs against the compressed surrounding material, much like common nails. Indeed, some staple gun models can handle brads and nails as well as staples. Some staple guns also use divergent point staples where the legs twist as the staple drives into the surface providing superior holding power.
