For me, the problem was the sensor connections. I took the unit apart (7 phillips screws, I'm not sure why I didn't have to remove the 8th.) Then I took the paper sensor unit off (2 more phillips screws.) Then I removed the little black box that both sensor wires are connected to (1 more phillips screw.) Then I pried that box open with a flat head screwdrive. Some parts fell out. I put it all back together and it worked.
If you don't want to mess with it, just remove the two wires and tie them together. The unit will always be on when turned on to Auto, but that's better than not working.

I had the same problem. I found that the sensor on the shredder is light sensitive. The viewing window in the bin was letting too much light in and was triggering the bin full light to turn on. I covered the window with a piece of paper and then restarted the shredder.It worked fine after that.
