SOURCE: Stapler works intermittantly
If not the power source or cord, the next activation point would be the trigger. Does the stapler make any sort of noise when the trigger is depressed? What type and model stapler is it?

First, are you using the recommended staples for this stapler? Many heavy duty electric staplers don't use "standard" desk staples. Second, try unplugging the stapler, unloading the staples, and if possible, reach a couple of fingers into the stapler and try manually pushing up on the staple head to see if you can get the driver blade to come down. Does it come down smoothly, or does it seem like there is something stuck in there? If you aren't sure about disassembling the unit (my usual method-but I'd recommend having the parts diagram handy), try using a flashlight to look at the underside of the staple head, where the staples come out - can you see anything stuck in there? If so, you might be able to use a small knife blade or small dental pick to get jammed staple pieces out.

My battery latch got stuck in the open position after replacing the battery on HP's DV 6300 series. The battery was thus stuck. I used the 'screwdriver' technique but with a rounded end kitchen knife not an actual screwdriver to remove the battery. It is important to push the knife down a little into the groove at the outer long edge of the battery and pry that outer edge up. AFTER DOING THIS THEN GOING TO REPLACE THE BATTERY I REALIZED THE LATCH PROBLEM OCCURRED BECAUSE I HAD PUSHED THE BATTERY LATCH TO THE OPEN POSITION TO REPLACE THE BATTERY. THIS IS WHAT JAMS IT. TO REPLACE THE BATTERY 'DON'T TOUCH THE LATCH AT ALL'. LEAVE THE LATCH IN THE CLOSED POSITION AND REPLACING THE BATTERY WILL SET THE LATCH IN THE CORRECT CLOSED POSITION, READY TO BE SLID TO OPEN POSITION ONLY TO DO THE ACTUAL BATTERY REMOVAL.

Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.
