SOURCE: The "arm" that ejects the slides has jamed on my Kodak projector.

the grease on the moving parts of the mechanism gets sticky with age. when the motor and cam stick, the select and index levers (which the cam moves) will stick. you'll need to remove the top and the whole mechanism and clean it out with wd40, dry it and regrease it. just remember what you removed so as to reinstall it properly.

SOURCE: projector broke

Given the age of the projector, chances are the cause of the problem is a broken "Link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, and over time it gets brittle & cracks, rendering slide change non-functional. Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this is an involved repair that requires dis-assembly & a service manual - - best left to a factory-trained repair dealer.

? Is the sprocket wheel in the middle of the projector supposed to move? The film seems to be locked up in there, and only the few inches of film in the gentle curve above the lens seems to feed thro


I know this post is old but I found a solution. The axle going to the sprocket is locked up with something sticky. You have take out the two screws holding the white plastic piece around the sprocket. Then loosen the small bolt on the big wheel on the other side. Remove the big wheel. Try to push the axle through to the other side. If it doesn't budge easily, hammer it out. That's what I had to do. Then clean it up real good with solvent, like alcohol. Lube it with grease and put it all back together. Worked for me.

I cant figure out how to work this movie projector i cant get the movie to load and play on the screen. I have hundreds of old movies to watch. the projector is a keystone k100


Old film projectors are sometimes challenging to operate.
I have an old Bell&Howell and have to stop and think whenever a friend asks me to transfer a film to DVD. (Fortunately not often anymore.)

I just Googled keystone k100 and got several sites including several videos on Youtube.

I'm sure you'll find something in your flavour.

Good luck! Have fun.

I want to know how to rewind a film reel or reverse an Elmo FP-A movie projector. I have an old Elmo FP-A movie projector that works fine. I do not have the instruction manual that would explain how to...


There are 3 round knobs and 1 Autostart switch on the control panel. The key to rewinding this machine is by pushing the gray button down, while turning the Motor Knob to the "Run" position. Of course you'll need to start the original film back on its reel, directly. (Do not thread the film as you would normally.) BTW, you can show your films in reverse by using the Reverse button on the motor switch while its running. Hope this helps. Now, if I can find someone who can guide me in re-assembling my Elmo projector's lens, which I dis-assembled in order to clean the crud off the multi-lenses in the main lens unit itiself.
