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!

Re: Staples SPL-P100 calculator feed
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....

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.
