Question about Tech Solution TS-4500 Shredder
I was shredding one of the ever present junk mail letters that had a paper version of a credit card attached. About 1/3 way through the credit card the printer started to struggle so I did a reverse to remove the credit card. I finally got it removed but now I can't get the shredder to work again. It will not go forward or reverse or even make any noise. I tried to pick as much paper out of the gears as I could.
Please ... unplug your shredder before doing this.
It sounds like you were on the right track picking paper out of the gears. The problem is that the paper can get really jammed up in there, especially when you use the reverse.
I found that I needed to use a combination of a small screwdriver with at least a 3 inch long blade to push the jammed paper through. The I use needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper through the other side.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if it does.

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called
customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder.
My shredder is no longer under warranty. However, she is mailing me out the
part I need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in
the USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!
