Question about Fellowes Powershred 4800CC Shredder
First of all you try plunging them in to other power board, check the cable and the plug (check if the cable or plug not getting shorted), make sure the circuit breaker for the shredder outlet is on.
tell me is there any humming noise? or any sign of power getting in to it?
Please post back further comments for more information...

SOURCE: No power to Staples mailmate
There is a 10mm 5amp @ 250v fuse on the main board that is probally blown . I unsoldered mine and soldered a pigtail fuse holder with a convient sized 5 amp fuse inside in its place . The shredder is not too bad to take apart , the head comes apart from the body of the shredder .Turn it upside down and you will see 6 or 7 phillips screws .Once these are removed the head assembly opens up and you will see the circuit board which is held in place by 2 phillips screws. A quick ohm meter test will reveal the fuse condition. It was an easy fix just MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE UNIT UNPOWERED while you work on it or its unassembled.

I took my Mailmate back to Staples and exchanged it for the model that took it's place. It's been working great. Since it was still under warranty when I took it back, it didn't cost me anything extra. SteveChen, I never got to try your solution but I salute you for having the determination to fix it yourself! From what they told me at Staples, the upgrade has eliminated the power problem. Apparently, the last model was just plain crappy as is evident in the number of people in various forums who have had the same problem. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the new model is indeed free of power issues!
