The Royal 1280mx has 2 relay switches, used to reverse the direction of the DC motor. One of the relays is fused/stuck in the activated (reverse) position. There are 3 relay switches on the circuit board; the direction reversal relays are located next to each other, near the motor connector. Replacing the relays should fix the problem. You can also try removing the relays from the circuit board and smack them on a table in an effort to free the stuck relay.

SOURCE: Only runs in reverse
I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc board, contact manufacturer for more info.
