Question about Royal 160MX Shredder
It is possible the blades are running in reverse. If the motor is running and the blades are turning without putting paper in, check the position of the switch. The motor should not turn on automatically when repositioning the switch. Reposition the switch so the light is on, but the motor does not run. Then try to put in paper. I hope this helps.

I have the same problem and upon removing the gears I found one that is plastic and worn pretty bad. Replacement parts can be purchased at 1-800-222-2310. Part # VF1012MX-08 Gear #2
I advise purchasing the metal one.

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
