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.

SOURCE: My Swingline Optima Power Ease

This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.

SOURCE: Someone loaded regular staples into

The Optima 45 is a very touchy stapler. Either you have a staple stuck or the unit is damaged. There is a five year warranty on the stapler so if you have had under five years it will be replaced for free. Here is the contact number. 1-800-541-0094

SOURCE: How do I open the

I couldn't open my Swingline Optima model 8784x either. Their website wasn't helpful except they mention you can change staples "with the push of a button." Button, I thought. What button? In the picture, there's a black button at the back end of the stapler. Mine is missing! The button, if it were there, would press down on a metal tab, releasing the staple slide which pops out the front. Insert staples, push it closed, you're done! I used a letter opener to push down the metal tab.

The auto stapling for my Optima 45 won't staple, can it be fixed? It will manual staple, but not auto. Kinda like the motion sensor went out. Any ideas??

Try to take all the staples out then put a small amount of "Two in one oil" as it is very fine oil. Once you have done this wipe off the excess oil if you have a lot spill out wipe with a rag & use the rag to wipe over the underside of one row of staples.
leave overnight & try to use this again with the slightly oiled staples this should remove any oil left then see if this does the trick. (Note I hope you have the correct staples for the machine of course.) Best Wishes Malcolm

My Optima 45 has stopped stapling. I cleared the area of crimped staples but it won't punch out a staple. What can I do?

There may be a reset button / leaver open it back up have a look around and see if there is any thing like a leaver that needs to be pushed into place for the machine to recognise it has been reset.

Swingline Optima 45 Stapler - cannot slide tray back in stapler, no staples jamming

Sometimes the rectangular insert where the staples sit on, gets dislodged. On the underside of channel insert is a spring and when correctly seated is in between the tabs of the bottom piece. If the insert isn't in between the tabs, it sits too high and makes it difficult to open and close the staple tray. The staples will jam.

No staples coming out of machines

The Optima line of staplers do not work without jamming continuously unless you use the Optima brand staples. They can be found in the store next to the Optima staplers in a rectangular silver box, and will solve you problem instantly. There is no other brand of staple that will work in this line (I tried numerous), but once you purchase the Optima staples, problem solved, and you'll love it!

I did not receive manual with the Optima 45 electric stapler. How do i get the slid to open to add staples?

The slide tray is on the bottom of the unit.
to open, you just press the very front button on the bottom.
it should open right up.
