English term or phrase:to tide
Paper feed adjustment:
a) Lift the separators (unscrew them)
b) Feed a document below the separators and let it down.
c) Tide the adjustment screws
d) Add the documents on the top
e) Adjust the feed ramp
Adjust the thickness by turning the knob as showed.
Lift up and down the knob A and tide it with knob B.
This is very obviously non-native English. ("Lift up and down the knob A" has at least three errors: the word order, the use of the article and "lift...down"; "showed" should be "shown. These are typical non-native errors.)

Explanation: Could it be that dictation software was used for this and the person said 'tighten' but the software heard 'tide'?
I use such software and have stranger things happen ...
