Don't have the motor switch in the still position when loading -make sure it is on FORWARD. Look at the little holes in the film and make sure the film is on the same side as the little grooves on the drive gear.
PS -let the bulb cool off before try to move the projector ,the bulbs are very expensive and hard to find.
If you do use the still position to view a frame do it for just a few seconds or the bulb will burn the film. Good luck- Tom.

The drive belt on the porjector maybe broken. They tend to be made of rubber like an elastic band and tend to get hard and break easily. If this is the case, you may be able to substitute a large elastic band to replace the origional part.

I found a web (D'Antiques Movie Projectors ) site for an 482a projector which is almost identical to the 481a projector. It had the information I needed.
You also dalled and provided a toll free number at which I may be able to purchase an owners manual.

Super 8 and Regular 8mm are the same film, the difference being the way they were supplied to the consumer - 8mm was supplied loose on a reel, Super 8 was supplied in a pre-loaded cassette. Both can still be purchased new from B&H Photo and other dealers.

This is a common problem with these projectors. Usually happens after a film breaks or a bad splice goes through it. Pull the lens straight out and then remove the lens housing that holds the lens and the focus controller. The screws for the housing are behind the glued on cover that says frame and focus. Remove the 4 screws behind it, slowly lift the cover and watch for a loose leaf spring that sits behind the cover. It will fall out if the projector is standing up, so lay it on its back and it will just sit there so you know where to put it during assembly.
