Paper stuck in feed slot

The usual process is to run the shredder in reverse, and the half shredded paper comes back out of the slot. I guess you have tried this and it did not work? Next step is to dismantle the cover and clean out the shredder blades with a small screwdriver and/or tweezers.

Canon ip2600 won't feed paper

I fixed mine!! I cut a letter size paper in half lengthwise (so it was skinny and long). Held the printer on my lap with both top and bottom trays open. I noticed the white pegs and skinny black roller inside were turning when I turned it on, so I waited til they were spinning and slid the paper between them along the right side. (Kind of a reverse feed). Had to do it between the crazy ink returns. Yes, the paper crumpled a little, and I did it a couple of times with a couple of papers. Something gave, because after that it started feeding properly again!

I have a Royal 7X Shredder which has developed a problem recently. The motor appears to try and run when paper is inserted, but the blades will only cut a 1/4 inch. The paper will not feed down into the...

I would definately say that you ahve some sort of jam in the lower half of the unit. If this is not the case, and you can see through it from bottom side up, then you have a belt slipping. There are 'toothed' belts that drive these. Most people call them timing belts, if you can get a hold of one or make sure yours hasn't come loose, I would.

Xerox XD100 paper jamming every time.

The fuser is the problem. Most likely the fuser will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
Google a business called The Parts Drop. they have either the parts or the unit.
You may just have to take the fuser out and remove a badly jammed piece of paper in that module.
Shut the machine off for a half an hour. Remove the back cover. You will then see on the left side a black plastic bracket with 3 plugs on it. Disconnect those 3 plugs. Then open the right side door and toward the top is the fuser. It has yellow caution HOT labels on it. There are 2 silver phillips screws holding it in. Remove the screws and then remove the fuser unit and see if there is a paper in there. There are 2 screws that you can remove and the fuser will kind of fold open to inspect for bent fingers or one out of place.

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model

Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Auto shred not working. Paper had been jammed it it, but I was able to remove it using the reverse option. Reverse works.

revers usually always works, i could be that the paper sensor is not working. there is usually a light beam or other mechanism that senses that paper is in the feed if this is not activated it will not start the motor.

Most shredders don't recommend use for more than 20-25 sheets in a session. Try using the reverse setting; even though you can't see paper, it's possible that there's some still in the feed channel. If after switching to reverse paper comes out, inspect the feed channel for more paper and clear any you find before trying to feed more sheets. Also in the future, constant use as you've described will burn out the motor.

Paper doesn't feed

It could be a few things, but the times I've had similar problems it was either caused by the feed/gripper rollers in the paper trays being worn out, thus not feeding any paper or feeding half a sheet and then jamming.

Or, it could be that the elevator in your paper tray isn't lifting, but if it's taking paper it's probably the rollers.

Shedder one works

This is an issue with the paper feed sensor which may be a electronic eye or a mechanical switch if it is mecanical you may just have to jiggle the switch a few times, occasionally paper may get stuck behind it not letting it activate. If it is electronic you have bad sensors or bad pc board and you'll have to contact the manufacturer for further info.
