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

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,

How do I install adding machine paper roll

Slide off the upper cover of the calculator, and cut across the paper roll to form a clean end.
If you are mounting the roll externally (outside of the back of the calculator), then look for a slot in the rear of the calculator, which will accept the paper. Feed the end of the paper through the rear slot, and then into the internal feed slot, and hold the [FEED] key. After that, you can flip the arm back to mount the roll and replace the upper cover.
If you want to place the roll inside of the calculator, then you need to feed from the bottom of the roll into the internal feed slot, and hold the [FEED] key. After you are finished, replace the upper cover.
