Staples SPL-P100 calculator feed

Argh! I have read past posts on other calculators and see the slot in the back, try to feed the paper in, stick it in between the fine silver slot and pressing the advance button, #sign (there is no *star* sign). The machine chugs along, but will NOT grab the paper, which I have cut very carefully into a point, very straight, and even on a slant. Blah!

    The design is incredibly stupid and is impossible to feed the paper! Why would anyone design a paper feed like this??

  • mikado Mar 05, 2008

    Oh thank you! It took a bit of fiddling, pushing the bubble of Post-it note down as it resisted going through, but it worked.



    I gather the paper on the rolls Staples sells for this calculator is not thick enough. The somewhat thicker Post-it does the trick and has the sticky on in to pull the roll through. Thanks again. Very clever.



    (A pink Post-it works too ;-))

There could be something stuck inside the unit. Try taking a business card and pushing it into the silver slot at the same time pushing the advance button.
Worst case senerio, bring it back to Staples and ask someone there, IM sure that someone there can get the paper to feed in seconds if there is nothing else wrong with it.
Sorry I couldnt be more help.
Good luck.

I've been trying for several occassions but in the end, the sticky worked very well for me too!!!! Tip: Just cut a little piece of the sticky note and make sure to stick the edges to the roll together and push while pressing the feed button....

    The sticky worked pretty well. Tip: Just be patient and make sure to stick the edges together and push slightly...

I used a yellow post it note to catch the feeder on the machine, it fit perfectly and caught right away, then I just put it on the paper I was trying to feed in. Worked very well for me.

    take the paper and fold it to make a point in the middle of tape roll( like making a paper airplane) push it though till it catches the roller in the middle-keep hitting feed button till paper is long enough to grab--worked for me

I don't know if it helps but small printers such as these often need a "point" or diagonal fold/cut to be presented to the input slot.

How to install paper


Without a manual, look at the picture of the calculator. Mount the paper, with the feed coming forward and over the top of the calculator. Insert the paper (recommend cutting it flush) into the feed slot in the back. Then use the paper advance key to advance the paper through the rollers. Unfortunately the manual is not available from the Staples website. Good Luck,

the tape goes into a small slot on the backside of the machine, not in the clear plastic cover. Install the roll so the paper rolls off the bottom, not over the top. Folding the paper back about 2" does help you get it through.

Okay...It took me forever to figure it out but I finally got it. On the back of the calculator there is a slot (back meaning where the black cord is connected to the calculator). fold the paper to make a perfect straight line. feed the paper through there and press thee upward arrow. it should work.

hope I helped...=)
