Question about Bell & Howell 357b Autoload Super 8 Movie Projector Vin

Open Question

I have an autoload super 8 projector that I bought in the late 60's. I am unable to keep the film advancing forward once it has started. I have tried stopping and starting and reversing which is the only way it will go?

SOURCE: belle & Howell Super 8 Projector model 254RS loading problem

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.

SOURCE: Bought a Bell & Howell Super 8 projector 481A

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.

Thank you

THREADING FILM IN A ELMO FP-C PROJECTOR


Is your film super 8mm? If yes, then the red sprocket above the lens should be pushed in, and the bottom black sprocket will stick out. If you have regular 8mm, then the black bottom sprocket should be pushed in. If the sprockets are not in the correct position, push the green lever forward (towards the screen) then open the two orange tabs, then push in the correct sprocket. Once you have the correct sprockets aligned, close the orange tabs. How to tell if you have 8mm or super 8mm film: Look carefully at the film image. If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm.

If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm. If your green lever is stuck in the forward position, that's because the film is not threaded. Once your film threads correctly, the green lever will spring back.

Eumig 610D Super 8 projector take-up reel not engaging at hub so will not rotate. Hub will rotate, not the reel. Perhaps worn key?


I think the Eumg 610D was a dual guage projector, capable of showing both Standard 8 and Super 8 films. (I'm basing my comments on the S810D I have in front of me, its sound "big brother").

To move between formats, there were two cogs internally that had to be changed, a film gate (two parts), and two adaptors/liners inserted into the centre of the film reels that transformed the centre from "a fat one" to "a thin one".

If the take up driver cog is rotating, but the reel is not, check whether the adaptor is in place.

You can see what they look like on eBay....

If the rear driver cog is not rotating, then it might be a worn/defective drive belt, in which case leave a further comment and we'll explore that.

Hope this helps

The Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload was made that way ON PURPOSE. The last foot or so must be manually pulled from the projector. As described in the manual, "this safeguard has been designed to prevent the end of your film from flapping against the projector after your movie is completed."
If the entire film was going into the take up reel at the end automatically, then THAT was a defective occurence. It is not supposed to do that.
