It's about four and a half minutes long, and shows how to clean the various components that need cleaning beforehand as well as how to thread the projector.

However, I wish you good bloody luck on finding a bulb, if you don't have one that still works. From the look of the unit, it uses a DAR bulb, which was delisted (read: went out of production) thirty years ago. You can sometimes find new old-stock (NOS) DAR bulbs on eBay, but expect to pay $30 to $35 apiece plus shipping for them.

How do I stop my Dad's Bell & Howell projector from "skipping" while running a film, model L, design 122.


For a projector to run right, the motor has gear teeth in it that engage with the hollow points on the film itself. The motor has to turn at a steady speed with no friction or hesitation. It is possible the motor on the inside of the projector needs to be oiled or cleaned out...or rebuilt at worse.
There is also the motor that pulls the film thru the projector and winds it onto the receiving spool. Sometimes that motor is out of synch with the projector drive motor and trys to pull the film thru to fast or turns to slow and the you get that "clicking " sound when the receiving spool isn't winding the film up fast enough and the film gets dragged on by those projector teeth and make that plastic clicking sound.
Watch the film while it is running between the two reels and the projector lens. The film should be slightly taunt going into the projector and slightly taunt coming back out of the projector. If you see the film grouping up in front of the projector drive or after, then you know your spools are needing greased up or there is a drag on the motors causing things to be unsynchronized.

This is definitely a mechanical problem and you need to watch the film being fed into the projector and how it is wound up n the receiver spool to see where the fault lies.

Bought a Bell & Howell Super 8 projector 481A off EBay and can't figure out how to thread the film.


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

I have a Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload Super8/Regular 8mm Projector bought in 1969. During projection, when the very end of the advancing film is no longer engaged by the rotating teeth, the film...


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.
