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.

I need a manual for Bell & Howell Lumina MX60 for an elderly person - need instructions how to load film.


Spec says it's auto-load. From what I recall of my own projector, you mount the input film reel on the front 'arm', extending it as necessary to give clearance, switch on the projector, then feed the free end of the film into the appropriate orifice at the front of the projector.
It then takes over, feeds the film through and wraps it around the take-up spool automatically. It may be necessary to cut the end of the leader on a diagonal to feed it in (not each time the film is loaded, just the first time.)
Once the film has fed through, switch on the lamp, focus and enjoy.

I have a Keystone K75. The film will not stay in a loop after going through projector so it goes through too fast and you cannot watch the movie. Any ideas of what is wrong?


When threading the projector you must have a loop of film before and after the film gate (the part that swings open). You can also try turning the projector on with no film in it and make sure both upper and lower sprockets are turning. If this is a new problem you might have a broken belt or gear inside. Take it to a camera repair shop and they can tell you more.

? 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.
