    how does the power shot go back together

  • spottydog3 Aug 11, 2008

    My Powershit stapler offers no resistance when I depress the handle, i.e., it is not raising the hammer.

    Same problem - no resistance when pressing the handle to staple, but when I pushed the handle to the right, the staple worked. Took it apart and put it back together, now it never works.

I borrowed my sister in law's PowerShot to put new upholstery on some chairs and after TWO successful staples, it quit working. Any ideas? The spring seems to be in there, but when I press down, there is no resistance. Help?

I need to know how to assemble my power shot. My father-in-law barowed it and when it did not work they way he wanted it to he took it apart and brought it back to me all in pieces. I have no idea how it looked inside before he took it apart. I need to see a photo or something of the inside to see how it goes back together and hope that all the pieces are there.

Just had the same problem I took it apart and put back- it is not htat bad but hard to describe. the problem I had is that there is no resistance. The problem with mine was caused by a broken part. Don't know what it is called but it is the part the hammers the staple if you look at it it located at the front of the stable and connects to the "spring" (which is actually a bent piece of heavy metal, kinda like a strut on a car) the "spring" has 2 prongs at the front a "hook" the slips over a metal nub at the back. The "hammer" piece has to notches one for each prong on the "spring" well one side is broken so when I press the handle down it pushes on a lever (which sits between the prongs) which lifts the hammer shich lifts the prongs on the spring causing the resistance - after a certain point the hammer disengages from the lever and the tension on the spring causes it to slam down on the staple. But since the notch on the hammer is broken in does not lift the spring

Hope this helps

How do you load staples into the Power Shot Model 5700M staple and nail gun? There is no manual in the package despite direction on the side of the gun to read it!

I have owned a Black & Decker Powershot before. Throw it away. They are **** . Stick with a Arrow or Craftsman. I didn't like the Black & Decker and gave it to a friend that was looking for a staple gun. He threw it away ! Worst excuse for a staple gun I've ever seen. Awkward to use and preforms on a scale of 1 to 10 , doesn't even hit 1 !

My black & decker powershot would not reset, so I took it apart. Now I can't figure out where the plastic piece goes.

I used the photo at the website. I printed the picture of the stapler, and after 4 or 5 tries, got it back together. It works just fine. Thank You very much.

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.
