I had to remove the inner cover and then lift out the shredder mechanism. Inside center on opposite sides of the paper slot were the LED and the sensor. Since they are both simply mounted in slots without screws or glue I removed them one at a time and cleaned them. Mine had a build-up of shredder oil. I used cotton swabs and isopropyl alcohol to clean the LED and sensor and now it works correctly.

I have a Staples SPL-TXC15A shredder that doesn't start when paper is inserted. The power light is on and it runs in reverse but won't start when paper is inserted.


You need to change the direction or travel switch. Auto will only work when the direction of travel is into the bin, but you probably know that. There is an interlock on it. Use a vacuum cleaner crevice tool and then the brush attachment on both sides of the head. If that doesn't work, my guess is that the forward reverse switch is faulty. You would need to strip it apart and check with a meter.

I have an ativa shredder model MD 1250. Became jammed on some staples. Reversed it and pulled it out but no the auto shutoff won't work Is it fixable? The shredder still runs.


Robert,
Double check that you do not still have any paper that may have become stuck in front of the sensor for the auto shutoff. If there is something in front of the sensor it will keep running.

Auto setting will not work on Staples SPL-EXC8A


Cleaning of the paper sensors is essential. Blowing on the center of the paper insert area will clear the paper fibers near the sensor but not all. Since my shredder was way past warranty, I opted to remove the 7 screws on the back of shredder mechanism, gingerly remove the shredding mechanism from its seat and there I found, wedged in between one of the sensors, a solitary paper fiber. That ominous, evil paper fiber was wedged in so tight that even the jet engine blasts from a 747 aircraft would have not dislodged the paper fiber. Making use of a Qtip, I dislodged the paper fiber, cleaned out all remaining paper fibers in and around the inside of the housing, then reassembled the unit. It has worked satisfactorily since then.

How can I turn off my new SPL-P100 calculator. I don't find any OFF button on it and there is absolutely no information about this subject in the very very very small guide included with the machine.


It may be one of those calculators that always auto-powers down, based on an inactivity timeout.
Turn on the unit, and then don't touch it for 15 minutes - if it turns itself off, you have a very
non-green (power wasting), auto shutoff calculator.

That very very very small "manual" for the unit is available at

When on


Make sure there is no paper blocking the sensors. Otherwise you may have a bad sensor or switch.
