Question about Black & Decker BD10P Shredder
I also have a Black and Decker BD-10P that has been a good workhorse of a crosscut shredder for quite awhile now, but it too stopped working a couple of days ago. Since the reverse works, I knew that the motor was not the problem, so, after unplugging it, I took it apart and found that the small plastic lever that engages the auto-start switch on the shredder when you feed paper into it was broken. There was no way to fix the plastic arm that was broken and when I tried the website listed on the owners manual, I got an error message telling me the link was no longer active. I searched for a parts listing for it and since I was not able to find any parts, I fixed it myself. The plastic are would have been easy to replace if I could have found the part, but I couldn't and it is too good of a shredder to throw away. My solution was to clip the wires on the auto-start switch and splice them together bypassing the switch. To use it now, I simply turn the master switch to "Auto" and the shredder turns on allowing me to use the shredder. Once I am done shredding, I simply turn the master switch to the "off" position turning the shredder off. (Not the safest solution, but hey, it works for me and since I don't have any little kids around to worry about I am fine with that. Hope this helps.

Most likely your optic sensor has something in front of it. Clean out the unit really well. It does take time, about 3 different screwdrivers, lon pliers and tweezers and a vacuum or compressed air. After that, learning more new words and swearing to god you will never let this happen again until the third time.
