How to replace lamp on Anscorama Slide Projector 980

I have a borrowed slide projector, obviously quite old. The lamp has burned out. I do not have the instruction manual. I would like to have some idea of how to replace this lamp before I order one.
Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

SOURCE: projector lamp burn out

What bulb code (usually a 3 letter code) or the model number I cannot say. Sometimes that info is written on the inside cover that covers the bulb, sometimes it is in the instruction manual. It is almost always written on the bulb.

SOURCE: I have a Bell & Howell slide cube projector

I occassionaly experience the same problem. I don't know why it occurs, however; here's what I do to get the projector moving again: 1) Face the right side of the projector wherein the lens will be pointing to your right. on the middle top of the projector edge closest to you you will see a top access tab. 2) Move and hold the tab to the left and lift open the top of the projector. 3) On the edge of the rotating tray at about the 5:00 position (my guess as I'm not at the projector now) you will slot in the circular plate aligned with another slot on the fixed casing. Inside this sloted area there is a metal pieve that spans the slot across the two surfaces. 3) Take a screw driver and giggle this metal peice, pressing dow and releasing, and / or in and out, while pressing the slide advance advance forward and back. I found no ryhme or reason to this or that it readilly works after so many jiggles, however; it alsways does usually after anywherefrom a few seconds to a minute or two. This isn't a fix but a temporary workaround. I'm in the process of sulling my thousands of slide to be digitized, after which I will no longer need this wonderful legacy machine. Hope this helps.

Ebay's your best bet. This company sells an array of belts, and I know the p37e is one of them!

I can not turn the light on my super eight projector. I have changed the projector bulb with no success. All other features of the projector function properly. The projector is made by elmo moder FP-A


I would use a volt/ohm meter to test the bulbs, If they are known to be good, open up the projector and look for a fuse.

BTW- Elmo was purchased by Canon many years ago.
