Question about Office Depot Ativa DXC180D Shredder
My shredder was only running in reverse, and it would make a clicking sound when i fed in the paper in forward. The sensor was okay, so this is what i did. Obvisouly something is blown on the mother board, and i can't fix that. I switched the wires around that go to the motor from the mother board. They just unplug, and it can easily be switched. Now when you put it in reverse, reverse is forward. You have no sensor, but you can still use it. Not the right way to fix it, but it's a fix if you are going to trash it anyway.

Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. Sensor is usually located in the center of the paper feed opening.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.

the gear inside the shredder must be broken. This is the wheel that connects the motor to the blades. its much cheaper to buy a new one that try to repair this.
