Martin: Pilar. There's something wrong with this photocopier. I keep pressing the button but it won't do anything.
Pilar: Oh dear. Do you want me to give you a hand, Martin?
Martin: Thanks. Have you any idea what this symbol means? The one flashing here.
Pilar: Maybe it means there is some paper stuck inside. It might be worth opening it and having a look.
Martin: How do I do that?
Pilar: You could try pulling that lever there.That's the one.
Martin: Oh yes. You're right. There is somepaper stuck in here. Thanks a lot. I think that's sorted it now.
