First disconnect from power. It appears that a staple has jammed in the slide which holds all the staples. Open up the filling section and look closely at the area where the hammer slide pushes out the staples, that is where most jams occur.

The staples probably can be obtained from a Stanley Sharpshooter Electric Heavy Duty Stapler dealer.

You should not need any tools to lift the guard/nose piece. The T5 nose piece cleary has engraved on it "Pull Up To Insert Staples". To remove old staples, use a pencil or similar rod to depress the hammer/striker above the staples while the nose is open.

The size & code of staple is usually on the side of the tool , ie 80/ 14 means it takes an 80 series staple & max staple length it can take is 14 mm. Hope this helps

The bostitch nailer pictured along along with your question is a RN46 roofing coil nailer. It has a dial on the front of the nose for adjusting depth. Some older nailers (roofing nailers) do no have a means of adjusting so were set at the factory for best performance. The question of depth usually comes up when lower bumper fails and the nail is driven too deep. Easy test. Remove nails and find a very soft piece of wood. Dry fire the gun against soft wood and measure how deep the driver is entering the wood. Harder test. Remove the head and use any handy tool to push driver down to bottom. Measure how far the driver extends past nose (should be about 1/8 to 3/16). If more, replace the lower bumper. Good luck
