Try making a point and feed it in the right place, the feed roller which is only about 1/2 inch wide should pick up the paper.

Your calculator is fine. It is an adding machine first, so it uses adding machine logic and you hit the star button to print the total on the tape. The equals sign is only used when multiplying and dividing.

Adding machine logic is as follows:

5+ total 5
3- total 2
7+ total 9
* print out total

Good luck,

Operation of the auto-fwd-rev switch should yield the desired result. If not, the switch could be defective.

Ck for jambed staples. Make sure you are not trying to load too many staples. Shorten the stick.

Hi there, its either full, has a jam or one of the compartments may not be fully closed. Check all of these things. It may also be overheated unplug it and wait a few and plug it back in 5-10 minutes is about a normal wait reset time for shredders

If your shredder was, well, shredding and suddenly stopped the mechanism may have become jammed. The motor overheats and goes into thermal shutdown. If you examine the mechanism, it may be jammed tight with bits of paper which will have to be picked out. after the motor has had a chance to cool, you may be up and running again.
