    I have tried the solutions that were suggested, and I find no paper blocking the feed but it still will not load the paper. Any other suggestions besides buying a new machine?

    No matter how much I try I cannot get the paper in!! Very frustrating!!

    I folded the tape back to make a point on one side of the tape. It went through by pushing and hitting the FEED button many times. However, now it won't feed automatically when on the print selection, nor when hitting the FEED button. One issue resolved, now working to resolve a new one. Anyone run into this? Resolutions?

The tape goes into a small slot on the backside of the machine, not in the clear plastic cover. Install the roll so the paper rolls off the bottom, not over the top. Folding the paper back about 2" does help you get it through.

How do I load paper?

I have a casion hr-100tm calculator and found the easy way to load a new roll of paper. Take a 3x5 index card and cut it on 45 degree angle, then with angle on the right of the machine feet it into the machine pushing it as you go. Once it begins to feed so you can pull on it, then take other end of card, scotch tape to new roll of adding machine tape. As you feed the card through the roll of paper foillows. Once it has fed into machine cut off 3 x5 card. Easy.
The problem is that all rolls of machine paper are not equal and the thinner paper doesn't want to feed. This way it works for any type. Hope it hellps.

How to install adding machine tape to a radioshack EC-3033

Here is the link to the instruction book for that calculator. It describes how to install the paper into the machine. The only thing I could recommend different is to fold the lead edge of the paper to a 45 degree angle /| instead of the straight edge the book is recommending. Sometimes there is a small blockage in the feed path and the angled fold will get the lead edge passed it enough for the feed rollers to catch the paper. The blockage usually feeds out with when the edge of the paper clears the rollers. I would try it by the book first then try the folded edge. The only other option would be a middle fold /\ in case the blockage is on the edge you folded from in the first attempt

Hope that helps

Load paper

You must feed it through the back of the machine while depressing the feed key. make sure it is the right size paper and hopefully there is not a jam in the machine. If so you can try sliding a business card through the slot where the paper goes and force any jammed paper out of the path.
