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.
