Customer Question
Hi. I have an...

Hi. I have an INIT paper shredder,, model #NT-PS10CC. The shredder jammed and I was able to remove all, or most, of the paper. But all I get now is a whining noise when I insert a piece of paper, or a grinding sound when I turn on reverse.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your printer?

INIT, model # NT-PS10CC.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your NT-PS10CC?

About 2 days.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

Haven't done this, shredder was given to me.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I hope you had a Merry christmas, I hope you can get my shredder working again, and I wish you a Happy New Year.
