When bin was full, I emptied it only to find that my shredded no longer worked on auto, forward or reverse

Dear Sir,
Maybe, just maybe, I have an answer for you.
Somewhere on the part of your shredder that touches the bin, there is a tiny switch that touches the bin, and it is a safety switch that causes the shredder to stop working if the bin is removed.
In the shredder I have, and have had, the switch is usually plastic, and is the same color as the plastic body of the shredder.
Proper positioning of the bin to the "bottom" of the shredder is critical to it's working, as the bin presses on the switch to "close" it.
God bless your efforts.

How do I unjam it?

Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

Compaq presario desktop will not turn on

Check the power cables if it is working properly.
See if your AVR didn't blow a fuse or the switch is working and the led light are lighted or is powered on.
Test your pc's switch if it is still established contact and not unpluged from *********** board and is working properly.
Test your power supply by unpluging all plugs that is connected to your motherboard and try to short out, the green and black wire from pin 4 and 5 see picture below. Just put a small length wire at pin 4 and five and you'll be able to know if it is working just fine.


Connect it to your computer again if it is working properly.
Press the power switch.
If it still is not working, try to disassemble your processor, then press the power switch.
If it still did'nt work or still doesent turn on, then your motherboard is the broblem and needs to be replaced. Have a nice day friend, and hope this could help you analyze.

Techko shredder model #SH4205PD. The shredder stopped working. After unpluggung it and sliding the switch back and forth a couple of times it worked. Now it has quit working again. what coulf be the...

The micro switch referred to is to triggers from the presence of a piece of paper in the slot when on 'Automatic'. If this is stuck in the closed position it will easily be verified by placing a piece of paper in the accepting slot on the top of the machine. If it turns on it is stuck in the closed position. These shredders obviously get quite dirty and may simply need cleaning. Be Very Careful when working on any shredder! Also. the slide switch while basic in design has a number of wires on 8 poles and could also be the problem. As well if you these machines are protected by a thermal cut-off circuit if you overworked it give it sufficient time to cool down and reset. These are the most probably things to look at however, more in depth Dx may be necessary.
Good luck.
