I love this stapler, but when it runs out of staples I can never get the new cartridge to load. I actually bought a new stapler (the same make and model) the last time I had to replace the staple cartridge because I couldn't get the stapler to grab and advance the new cartridge. I am following the instructions EXACTLY. The cartridge pops into place, but when I try to staple, no staples come out. There aren't even holes in the paper that a staple would leave if it was trying to go through the paper. There are no jammed staples. Please Help

I use this stapler on a daily basis. This works well when new but now I have to push the trigger mechanism forward each time to trigger the stapler. I have used a hand operated stapler that can staple up to 40 sheets that provided better reliability. The staple position feature is this staplers best feature as it positions the staples at the same point each time. The staple cartridge prevents you from having to reload as often as a hand stapler.For the money I would stick to the hand stapler.

Broke Quickly

By claire123

from Chicago, IL, USA

Comments about Swingline 690E Electric Cartridge Stapler:

This stapler, at first was great! After several uses it became harder and harder to use. You would have to press it a certain way and then eventually it stopped working. I expected more out of a stapler that cost a lot.

fails after less then one roll of staples

By Alex

from Bishop, CA 93514, USA

Comments about Swingline 690E Electric Cartridge Stapler:

I used less then 3/4 of a roll. The plastic that holds the staples as a roll, soon accumulate in the head and prevents the staples from moving forward to the ram. There is no simple way to clear the head.

Won't staple after new cartridge installed.

By CMCDVS

from Manchester, NH

Comments about Swingline 690E Electric Cartridge Stapler:

I'm completely frustrated that after replacing the staple cartridge, for the very first time, the stapler no longer works. We have taken it out and primed it SEVERAL times and nothing will work. I looked up the warranty and it expired 24 days ago. Arghh!

Just received this product today and it will not release any staples. It sounds like it's stapling but there are no staples.

Comments about Swingline 690E Electric Cartridge Stapler:

I would give it a great review if someone could tell me what I can do to get the staples to come out. The cartridge is snapped in place.

Easy to use

By Don63

from New Market, AL

Comments about Swingline 690E Electric Cartridge Stapler:

I just purchased my third model 270 stapler. I have been well pleased with their performance. Very seldom do they miss stapling, usually that is caused by moving the paper. My second still works but the anvil is worn out. I plan to return it for repairs. Love these staplers. During tax season they get a real workout.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
