Top 20 Staples SPL-P500 Printing Calculator Questions & Answers

Your calculator is fine. It is an adding machine first, so it uses adding machine logic and you hit the star button to print the total on the tape. The equals sign is only used when multiplying and dividing.

Adding machine logic is as follows:

5+ total 5
3- total 2
7+ total 9
* print out total

Good luck,

Try making a point and feed it in the right place, the feed roller which is only about 1/2 inch wide should pick up the paper.

That is because when you turn it off the cooling fan stops and if you have been using it a lot, the heat immediately builds up and it trips the overheat switch.

If should restart after about an hour. Unless it is an industrial shredder, you should use it no longer that 5 minutes. Shred a little and often.

If your shredder was, well, shredding and suddenly stopped the mechanism may have become jammed. The motor overheats and goes into thermal shutdown. If you examine the mechanism, it may be jammed tight with bits of paper which will have to be picked out. after the motor has had a chance to cool, you may be up and running again.
