Electric staplers are notoriously unreliable, but the problem you describe sounds like buildup of the adhesive -- a sort of varnish -- used to hold the staples in stick form for loading in the tool. Remove the staples and apply a light coat of 3-in-1 or other thin oil to the first two or three staples. Reload and cycle the tool. This should help you.
Most staple guns accept a range of staples of a standard type available from many different suppliers. It is rare that a staple should be manufactured for the exclusive use of a single staple gun.
First you need to know the sort of staple you need. Unfortunately staple gun manufacturers tend to omit this information from their literature and instead use the part number they have allocated rather than the more universal information of type and size.
Fortunately many nail and staple suppliers catalogues contain useful drawings with sizes so identifying any staple, once it has been very carefully measured, fairly simple.
now do you have a full size finisher to the left of the copier or is it built into the mid section of the copier its self. now if it is a full size finisher on the left side of the copier there is a little door that will open up and the staple cartride is behind that door. from what i have been told of the finisher built into the mid section of the copier it should slide out towards you and the staple cartride is in the back where the finisher slides out. sorry never actually changed one but someone explained it to me.
You need the staple loader to keep the tension on the staples. The part is usually not sold separately. Your only chance is to find a used T-50 and cannibalize the part. You can get a new T-50 online for $25.
I will assume you are talking about the stapler on the finisher. That is a little tricky, but you will see a button on top of the finisher, you have to hold it down for a few seconds and the trays will lower. There is then a small door that opens and the staple cartridge is in there. You can either hold the button down again to raise the bins or turn the machine on and off.
I called a repairman to come and fix it. I am not a stupid person and can generally follow instruction and figure something out, but this is the second time this has happened with this machine & this staple cartridge, and why this is so difficult is beyond me. We have a mainternance agreement so I just called to have him come and fix it....again.
