I have a Stanley-Bostitch desktop electric stapler. It stopped working; however, the red light on top still works, as does the push button to eject the staples. How do I fix it?

The optical sensor that detect the presence of the paper is malfunctioning - you will have to take the unit apart and see what is wrong with it. Most likely the sensor is dirty and it needs to be cleaned.

I have a rexel odyssey heavy duty stapler but the spring has popped out, how and where do I attach it back on?


Rexel Odyssey heavy duty stapler: The pring that pushes the staples into position can come losse if the stapler iss dropped. It's difficult to work out how to replace it! However, there are only two "lugs" that will take the circular ends of the spring. One obviously fits to the sliding staple retainer. The other to the back end of the pressed-metal inner body. However, to work, the spring must be threaded from this point along the pressed metal parallel-sided inner body back through a slot and over a rounded bent piece (shiny from prvious friction) and back down to the sliding staple retainer. It's trickey to do, but that's where it has to go in order to provide forward tension when the Stapler is closed.

How do you add staples to a swingline 8784x stapler


You need to remove the black cap at the back of the stapler, then use a screwdriver to press down on a lever inside the stapler. The stapler holder will pop out at the front, then pull it further out and load with staples. May be an easier way, but this what worked for me.

I just received the Swingline SmartTouch Stapler, but the problem is ... I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO OPEN IT TO LOAD STAPLES. It's getting rather frustrating. What's the trick?


I can solve it!!!!!!!!! Remove the clear tape at the front of the stapler...the tape you cannot see, and push from the back of the stapler! Please note on the bottom of the box......it reminds you that this stapler does not come with paper or staples!!!

The stapler will only work 1 time. then you must manually push the staples forward. the spring is not strong enough to do that. thanks. Jim


Usually, it is not the spring, but, rather, the stapler is clogged. Turn off the power and gain access to the stapler slide mechanism. Look carefully along the track and the hammer mechanism for pieces of a broken staple or paper chad. Wipe clean and give a light spray of silicone, wipe down and re-assemble. This should clear the problem. Please post back if other issues arise from your inspection.

Best regards, --W/D--

Have a Electric Stapler B8E E66760. Won't kick out to load staples


pretty simple. Take off the plastic cover, at the front where it staples will be a black metal piece on top of the stapling area. That is the front clip release. Release the staple tray like you would normally with the button and also Push the top black piece back to detach it from the staple tray. It should spring out then. Clean around it with alcohol and keep the cover off. Push it back in place, release it a few more times to make sure it works correctly now, then put the screws back in.

My Swingline Stapler Model 51110 electric stapler no longer staples. The staples will not move forward and it just does "blank" stapling. Also, it goes off on it's own all the time running stapples...


I have the same issue; however, there is some resinous material that came out of it as a result of my trying to figure out why it wasn't stapling anymore. Anyone know where I can take it for repair?

Stapler (swingline 211xx) has jammed. It is electric. When I plug it in it make a very loud noise like it's trying to staple but nothing happens. When i press the release button on the top the stapler tray...


Turn the stapler over, remove the batteries, then remove the black pads and the four screwa under them. Take off the bottom cover and you will see the clear tabs of the cover sticking through the bottom plate. Pust them with a screwdriver toward the center of the stapler while squeezing the cover from the other side. Chances are that you will find the plunger that drives the staples is misaligned. Bend it gently forward or back until it moves without binding. Good Luck!

Stanley-bostitch B8E E66760 jammed and can not un jam it


i pushed down on the on the cartridge itself and then on the release button. it freed the cartridge and i was able to access the staples themselves. (the tray was full of new staples).
i replaced the cartridge empty, activated the stapler a few times...reopened the tray, reloaded it with the same staples i had removed, and it worked fine.
i found this useless information at the bostitch website:
