Either there is a piece of paper that is jammed where the paper in sensor is located, or there is paper fibers covering the paper in sensor, or the paper in sensor is defective.

The paper in sensor is usually located in the center of the shredder where you place your paper. Once you locate your sensor, you can try blowing it out with a can of air that is used to clean your keyboard out.
Since the opening for the paper or the Thoat width is 9", the switch should be close to 4.5" towards the center.
To try to help you located the sensor, take a piece of 8 1/2 " x 11 paper and fold it in 1/2 Long ways. This will place a crease in the middle of the paper. With the power off, or unplugged, place the paper in the shredder and look around where the middle of the paper (crease) lines up in the shredder. You might need a flashlight to help you located it. It will either look like a slot, or a little black lever.
Hopefully you will be able to blow the sensor out and clean it.
Good luck.

How to empty a Tech Solutions TS8000 shredder

Pull the top of the basket toward you and the top of it should swing out. Then you can lift the basket up and out once the top of the basket is partly open. Hope this helps. Have a good day. Mac =)

Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse

Sounds like the sensor/switch that detects when the basket is full of clippings is stuck in the "full" position. UNPLUG this potential finger-eater and poke around on the underside with a pencil or something.
