The auto stop on my Royal VF850MX paper shredder won't turn off. I was using it and it was fine. Now it won't turn off automatically.

I took my Royal HG120 apart and cleaned it good. Now the auto shutoff works fine. The Royal has 6 screws that I removed (make sure it's unplugged) and then vacuumed it out and then took a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and cleaned the sensors that are located in the middle of where you insert a piece of paper. I was surprised at how much paper was amongst the electrical parts. Perhaps I shouldn't use a bag... just the plastic container. The bag may push paper into place it shouldn't be. I also should empty it more often and not try shoving the paper down to get just a couple more pieces of paper shredded. Good luck!

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?


That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

Won't shut off


You have an optic sensor that is blocked or shorted. If you take it apart you should be able to identify the problem. It is up by where the paper feeds in.

The shredder has stopped working for either CDs or paper. The green light comes on when the switch is set "auto", but it won't shred


Is it Jammed.??? does the motor at least run.????
If the motor runs but the cutting blades dont turn then youv'e lost a gear inside....if the motor dosn't turn at all...then youv'e prbably lost the PCB inside...also make sure youv'e cleaned the Glass eyes in the middle of the paper oening....for parts give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Paper Shredder will not shut off when in auto mode


if you answer no to the following question, then I do know your solution: Q: When you unplug the unit immediately after your action of "When those paper complete the shredder does not turn off."...and then plug it back in, does the shredder STILL continue to operate? if no, then the solution is to disassemble the feeder unit and manually unclog the paper sensor.
