Royal CIA 12X Shredder Problem

The photo-sensor where you put paper in the machine has a reduced sensitivity.
to get the machine to work I have to shine a flashlight on the paper under the lip where it goes in the shredder.

have tried adjusting the two potentiometers on the circuit board but neither helped the situation.

WHERE CAN I OBTAIN A NEW PHOTO-SENSOR???????????

    My 12x shredder will not receive sheets for shredding. I have disassembled it & cleaned it out by vacuum. It seems to run fine in manual reverse. Not sure if model is CIA 12X as the tag only says 12X, Design Registration 99114485.8

    My 12X shredder will not receive sheets for shredding. I have disassembled it & cleaned it out by vacuum. It seems to run fine in manual reverse. Not sure if it is the CIA 12X shredder. Tag only says 12X, Design Registration 99114485.8 with perhaps a model #9900868. Is there a service shop in St. Paul, MN area or can you recommend a fix? Thank You,

    I have the same problem, about halfway through a piece of paper it will stop, although white papaer seemd to work most times. I just lift the edge of the remaining paper and it seems to take it.

If your machine has an electronic paper feed sensor try cleaning the sensor with a qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
