I had the same problem with a S50, where the lens door would not operate properly and would not open enough to cause the camera to activate. I took it apart and found that there are two small gears that keep the door on track, one had split in half and jammed the mechanism. They were white plastic, perhaps nylon? I found another S50 on ebay with broken electronics but a working lens door and took parts from it to fix my system. Getting the tiny gear in place was tricky as there are several springs used to activate the camera on switch.

Bell & Howell Cube Slide Projector Gear, New Item condition: New Quantity: More than 10 available Price: US $15.00 Approximately C $15.54 Buy It NowBuy It Now
This is the gear that goes bad on Bell and Howell cube type slide projectors. If you have one of these projectors you can pretty much expect the gear in your machine to go bad. The original gears were made out of an inferior material that was too soft. New old stock gears would be made of the same material and although they have never been used they most likely will fail right away since they are made of the same inferior materal. They were made soft to reduce the mechanical noise when the gear runs. This was told to me by the person who designed them at Bell & Howell. These new replacement gears are made out of Delrin, an excellent material for gears. Delrin is sometimes used to make gears that are normally made of metal. Don’t miss your opportunity to finally fix that old projector or get a spare gear for your working machine while they are available.
Detailed installation instructions will be included with every gear.
