They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

To find percentages on this calculator, or any calculator, you divide one number by the other, and multiply the result by 100.

For example, for 2 out of 5, we type in 2, hit the divide button, type in 5 and hit the equals sign and we will get 0.4. To make this into percentage, we then multiply the answer by 100 to get 40%.

Good luck,

There is an optical sensor that needs to be cleaned. It is usually at the middle of the slot where you put paper to be shredded. Use canned air to blow out both holes (one on each side of the slot).
Hope this helps.

Check operation of the bin interlock inside the area where the bin fits. It may be damaged/defective.

On the Staples Scientific Calculator BD-107i, I can't find the fraction function. I don't think there is one.

There isn't one Connie. There is a thermal cut out inside. There is also a safety switch in the base.

I asked you some questions yesterday which you didn't answer. I am the shredder expert, I have one in bits on my workbench. The parts inside are cheap nylon. This one shattered one gear and made a hole in the one you see.
