SOURCE: Shredder won't turn on
ok " if the ready light did not come on it's telling you that there is no power sound like the plug in transformer is no good .
you can check that transformer , with a multimeter, see if you have the right voltage.

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.

For me, I had to move the 'black thing' in the center of the shredder at the top out of the way with a screwdriver. The black thing, whatever it is, seemed stuck against the top. So, once I moved it out of the way, it works. That may not be the right thing to do, but it worked for me.
