This is a touch situation as there are paper sensors involved. Some where in the paper path a sensor has gone bad or ther eis a small piece of paper still in the path.

I would suggest that you go to teh brother site and download the user manul for this model. It will diagram the paper path and sensors and give you further information

My gbc cc195 shedder is not working. a red light stays on


Is it blocked with paper shreads? I have taken mine apart several tiimes to remove the small pieces of trash that clogged the micro switch that keeps it running. Also it will over heat at times if you feed it with to thick of paper stacks. I have used the reverse button a few times to clear it. It is hard so not seeing it but it can be cleared to work again. Tools I used were a paper clip and small screw driver.

I have a 2003 sony kp51ws500 television and there's a timer on the tv and it won't turn on. A red light blinks 6 times then nothing happens. I unplugged, I hit the reset button, nothing happen


read the instruction manual and see how to operate.
if the timer is for to sleep, the problem will be the IC associates with him, you must see the block diagram and w.diagram. and tracking the signal.
go to www. retrevo.com and download the diagram. God bless you
