Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
There are two screws on the bottom which are visible. Leave them alone. The four screws that hold the bottom on are UNDER the rubber feet. Gently lift one edge of the rubber feet and then carefully peel them off. You will need a long thin Phillips screw driver to remove the four screws, UNPLUG the unit before opening it.
In most cases the plastic will be wrapped around the orange/red colored roller. This roller cannot be turned unless you push the "Release" lever. Using a tweezers, try to grasp a corner of the end of the rolled up plastic. Pull firmly and steadily on the corner until you have enough free to grasp with a needle nose pliers or a forceps, Then work your way across the entire end of the plastic sheet until its free. Finally, reposition the pliers or forceps toward the middle of the freed end and firmly pull to unroll completely.
Remember, you must be pushing on the "Release" while doing this or the roller will not turn. When you start, you may have to move the roller to get it to a position where you can try to grab an end corner of the plastic sheet. You should be able to do this if you a pushing on the Release lever.
Finally, if you have left the rolled up plastic sheets on the roller so long the are fused into one mass, my directions my not work. In that case, try slitting the entire length of the rolled up plastic with something like an xacto knife, BUT DON'T **** THE RUBBER ROLLER. That's tricky, but at this point you have nothing to lose.
Took me 20 minutes to figure out how to open the unit. Ten minutes to take out the wrapped up plastic sheets
