Shredder will not work in automatic mode


There might be a tiny scrap of paper blocking the sensor, which will keep the motor running.

Change my credit card number


To no longer have use of a credit card number, while the account is still open and active, and to change that credit card number to a newly assigned number...

Call your credit card customer service number located on the back of that credit card, from an issued paper credit statement, or from the official credit card website. Mention that the existing credit card number has been compromised and that you need to change that number by canceling the existing card. The credit card company will then re-mail you another credit card with a newly issued credit card number.

In the past, MBNA credit cards had the ability to issue short term use pseudo credit card numbers that represented the existing account, but could only be used for a specific customized dollar amount. However, Bank of America no longer supports this function any more.

Www mbna co uk activate


Like the letter that came with the new credit card says, you should call a phone number and give them a security code. No call, no activation. Don't try to activate a credit card online on a site you don't know .

My fd 400 credit card machine not recognizing paper


you need to make sure the paper is thermal. you can test by scraping on the paper with your nail. if a black line appears that is the thermal side and it should face down in the paper loading tray. if the paper is new try another role and or turn it over, but it has to be credit card machine thermal and not calculator paper

My royal shredder will shred paper just fine but now it won't shred a credit card. any ideas?


Silly question if it shreds paper fine but....when did you last oil the machine.???
Cross cut shredders need to be regularly oiled..( pour some shredder oil across the cutting blades).
It may just be that the credit card is too thick!

I have a Fellowes shredder P - 35C It will work in reverse but not inwards. I have left it for considerable time but still won't start up when I insert paper.


Unplug the shredder and check the shredding blades to be sure they are not jammed with paper. If paper is stuck in the blades, it will not function to add more paper to the jam. It WILL work in reverse to remove it's jam. Also make certain the blades have not been bent by discs, credit cards, or thick amounts of paper. If all looks well, blades are straight and not clogged with paper, be sure the door (if you have this type of machine) is closed properly. If not of this helps it run, you might need to have a professional look at it OR it might be time for a new shredder.

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: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

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: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Can't get shredder to work


Please ... unplug your shredder before doing this.

It sounds like you were on the right track picking paper out of the gears. The problem is that the paper can get really jammed up in there, especially when you use the reverse.

I found that I needed to use a combination of a small screwdriver with at least a 3 inch long blade to push the jammed paper through. The I use needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper through the other side.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if it does.

Blessings,

Wont stop running


The auto switch is stuck. Feed more paper in it to clear it, and kick once for me. The shredder has a paper jam. You can try 3 or more sheets at one time to clear it. Also try 'paper shred oil'. You can buy it at Office Depot or Office Max.
