You can remove power to gain access to the shredder mechanism. You may be able to pick out the remains of the credit card. Shredders, even "heavy duty" ones do not do well with credit cards and other plastic material.

How do you clean the "eye" on the Aurora AS1219CD? I heard that may be the problem with it not taking paper. But I am not sure how to go about it.

the best way is to take a q-tip and alcohol and rub the eye if you are facing the shredder it should be on the front but that is th only way we have to do it

My shredder is jamed.

Take the shredder off of its bin, turn upside down, make sure it is unplugged, and pull any pieces of shredded paper out of the shredder teeth, If the reverse mode did not unjam it then you might try opening it, by the inside of the shredder, and unjamming it that way, may I add that there is a sticker covering one of the screw holes that will say "if removed warranty is not good anymore".

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working

Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here:

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here:

if you have reverse, run reverse.
if you don't have reverse, you will have to disassemble the drive shaft/cutters and clear manually

Aurora AS662C paper shredder

I had the same problem. I found that the shredder was not placed squarely on the basket. There is a small switch under the rim of the shredder (mine is on the back side) that gets depressed when the shredder is placed on the basket. If this switch is not depressed, the shredder will not work.
Make sure the shredder is fully seated on the basket.

Hope this helps!
