Question about Canon P23-DH Calculator
Hi, I had the same problem...but I fixed it. Here's how: At the very back of the calculater under the paper roller there is a very thin horizontal slot. Insert the tip of the paper roll into the slot, then press the paper advance button located on the top left hand sidw of the calculator until you see the paper. Guide the paper through the top slot and voila.

The easiest way to load the paper is to cut away a corner before you feed it (advise given to me from an accountant) then put the paper in the slot and press FEED. VOILA!

I was having the same problem. I was trying however to put the paper into the top. Go all the way into the back like someone else said. Where you plug the charger. There is a slot there that the paper feeds into. Have the calculator set on print and the paper started into that slot.

I have tried all of the above. I don't think that the pickup rollers are working.
Bummer! What is a boy to do?

I was having the exact same problem with the Sharp EL-1750V...This is how i solved my problem:
Theres a thin "slot" in the back near the cord input. i actually used a heaviver piece of paper to feed through the slot. Example:" cut an unpeeled white sticker label with the back still on it"..i feed it through and once it went through and i was able to c it , i took a piece of scotch tape& attached the tip of the calculater paper.once the paper went through..wahhh laaa..i was back in business.. but regardless...this has to be thee worst manufactering everrr...i know they seen this screw up before they made the mass production..lol :)- CC

The trick is you have it on " Print" mode, then feed the paper into the slot and press the feed, or * button !

Look on the back of the calulater, you will see a little slot by where u plug in the cord. if you put the paper in there and push it in some and press feed it will pull it to where it needs to be. It is very easy to do. it took me a whille to figure out what everyone means but it really is easy,

I dont know if I'm just retarded or what the problem is, but I read ALL of these solutions and I had tried pretty much everything I could think of myself and nothing seems to work for me.
I think maybe what I'm thinking is the "slot" isn't, but I've tried to insert the paper into every possible thing on the calculator that could be interpreted as a slot and nothing seems to work and I've tried both the feed and * keys several times.
It just keeps printing on the same spot of the paper and it doesn't go anywhere. From above, it looks like there isn't anywhere for the paper to go TO...but I doubt that's correct.
Is there anyone who can describe the slot exactly, where it is on the calculator, what it's near, the size in comparison to other things, the colour, etc. I just can't find the freakin' thing!
Thanks for all of the solutions anyway. :/

Before starting you have to put it on the PRINT then feed paper

I had much difficulty loading the paper also. It takes some persistent 'feeding' of the paper until the FEED button catches it an pulls the paper through the paper feed slot. Be patient, you should know on the first pressing of the FEED button whether the paper has caught.

Pressing the paper advance button would not work for me. After inserting the paper into the thin slot, hit the "star" key (*) several times until the paper comes through the top slot.

Cut paper at a 45 degree angle and load into back slot with angle (apex) of paper to the right of machine when facing it. Be sure to push it thru when loading. You should see tip next to calculator number wheel. Hit the additon sign several times to advance. You may need tweezers to pull paper thru if it doesn't advance by itself.

SOURCE: loading paper
The entry point is on the back bottom of the machine. Cut your paper into a shallow triangle w/a slight point in the middle. Guide it through the slot on the back, and then lift that point up so that it goes into an almost invisible opening with small silver metal tabs on either side. The paper will want to feed underneath the entire black plastic mechanism, but don't let it. As the instructions indicate, the paper does not actually feed "under the black plastic plate", but through it. After you manage to insert the point of your paper through the correct slot, make sure the entire edge of the paper actually enters so it is grabbed when you push "Feed."

A lot of times, the paper will not advance into the calculator without the paper being cut STRAIGHT ACROSS. Try cutting it straight across and then try to feed it in. The rollers should be able to grab the paper at that time.
If this helps, please rate me. Thanks, Patty

There is a small **** right where the paper roll gets installed - it looks like the seam between the top and the bottom of the calculator. The paper feeds from the roll directly into this - maer sure you have a very clean edge to start with - then turn on the print function and push a button until it starts to feed through. Be patient with it but it will work.
