My Staples 16 sheet Microcut shredder starts the shredding operation after I push the button and continues the shredding operation after I shred a paper. How can I get the shredding mechanism to stop...


It's a tedious process to clean it out. Most auto switch shredders use either a tiny little lever or an optical sensor in the paper feed slot. Usually removing the shred head, picking all the paper out and blasting all the dust out with air will clean it up. Then run a few sheets of paper with shredder lubricant (basically clean mineral oil) to oil the blades and it should be good to go again. Just be careful cleaning that cutting head. I've donated many drops of blood to office equipment over the years.

Why wont my staples titanium shredder continuously shred?


Not giving a model number, it's hard to say. But quite probably after use for 20 mins, the machine starts getting hot, and then it shuts down while the machine cools down.

I had the same issue with a shredder of mine. It prevents the machine burning itself out.

If you want one that just keeps going and going without heat issues, you have to pay more for a better shredder. Unfortunately.

How do I oil the shredder


Found this that should help:
Oiling Instructions for Fellowes Shredders
Why and How Often: Regular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders is a necessary maintenance step to help keep your shredder functioning properly and prolong its life. Several factors determine how often you should oil your shredder-such as the type of paper being shred, the amount of paper being shred, and whether you shred only occasionally or continuously for long periods of time without stopping.
  • As a general rule, it is a good practice to oil your shredder each time you empty the wastebasket, or once a month.
  • Micro-cut shredders need to be oiled more frequently-ideally after every 15 minutes of use.
How To: Press and hold down the reverse button on your shredder. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps across the cutters while gently squeezing the oil bottle. Continue to run the shredder in
reverse for another 10-15 seconds.
What to use: It is recommended that you use Fellowes Oil to oil your shredder. You may also use other oil designated for shredder use.
Do not use any oil or lubricant that is dispensed from an aerosol container.
Do not use any petroleum-based oils or lubricants. Use of such oils or lubricants will void the warranty on your shredder and could cause serious injury, as they are fire hazards when used with electronic devices.

Staples TXC22A. Why does Jam Light prevent shredding?


Your meticulous cleaning may have overlooked embedded residue from coated paper or paper laminated with plastic. It may be necessary to use a sharp pick and even a utility knife to remove the material bit by bit.

Tony hawk shred will not calibrate, have tried everything suggested by others (since christmas) for two months, still can not calibrate


It's possible that walls, people, or other entities are triggering the IR sensors on the sides of the board. To prevent this issue, make sure that there are four feet of free space on all sides whenever playing and that there are no large metal objects nearby.

Return to the main menu and select "Options", then select "Calibrate Board" and follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure to follow the steps exactly and hold the board in the calibrating positions for the amount of the time the video that is play is telling you.

During the initial IR sensor calibration process ensure that you are standing away from the board and that you are motionless. When it is time to calibrate each individual IR sensor you will then be shown some positions on the board to hold. Ensure that your entire foot is covering the lens of the particular IR sensor you are instructed to cover. Also ensure the board is facing the right direction. The buttons on the board should be on the left side of the board. Cover the whole sensor for the full count. Tony Hawk will say "Got it" when the timer is finishing. Continue to hold that board position until the button prompt to continue appears. Stepping off of the board before that will cause an error even after Tony Hawk says "Got it". You do not need to press a button to continue to move on to the next step. The calibration video will move on to the next step on its own.

If you still have issues with the calibration then try lowering the lights in the room. Sometimes bright lights can interfere with the IR sensors.

hope this helps

PowerShred C-220 will not shred automatically


OK lets try.
You likely have a photo sensor that detects the paper and it is dirty.
It is likely covered with paper dust (hopefully only on the outside)
Locate the sensor and wipe it off or just wipe the entire throat area.
WITH MACHINE OFF
Hope this helps
