Unit will not turn on auto,turns on and runs in reverse, for a few seconds and shuts off.

Try cleaning the eyes in the middle where you insert the paper. If cleaning dosnt fix your prob you may have defective eyes or can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance and pricing.

The green light stays on but it will not shred any paper. The reverse works fine. For the Royal CIA 12 X Shredder

Try cleaning the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in...if that dosn't fix it then its probably the pcb inside thats defective...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

Royal 150MX shredder won't auto shut off. When powered on, always runs until powered off, even after all paper is shredded. Is this also a reset problem or something fouling a switch?

Prob could be the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in. They just might need cleaning with a soft cloth( unplug machine first.) If that dos'nt fix it the eyes could be faulty or the pcb could be faulty....give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

The shredder runs perfectley in the reverse direction, but does not run at all in the shredding direction

I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it
