Question about Bell & Howell Cameras

Open Question

Bell & Howell Model LX58 8mm projector with no lamp. It turns on (fan runs) but won't auto-load film. Will this projector run film without a bulb installed?

Bell & Howell Model LX58 8mm/super-8mm film projector. It powers on and the fan runs but it won't auto-load film. It has no bulb (DLD) installed and I can't even find a bad bulb to test with. I don't want to spend $$$ on a new bulb if the projector is dead. Does anyone know whether or not this projector should run film through it without a bulb? Could there be a circuit that prevents film loading when no bulb is present? I cannot find the manual online or otherwise. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Alternatively, if anyone has a burnt out DLD bulb and an ohmmeter, can you please check the resistance between the pins that connect to the burnt filament. I'm thinking there is a resistor in parallel with the filament to allow a small current to flow when the filament burns out. Anyone?

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.

My son just purchased a Bell & Howell 2575C 16mm projector which seems in good working order; however, we cannot figure out how to turn on the light (the bulb appears to be fine)...we've threaded film,...


Chances are that if everything else seems fine and is coming on then most likely you have a bad bulb or it could be loose,make sure its fitted into the bulb holder assy good and snug,dont force it or you will break it at the base.Go to google and google your model number for the bell and howell projector and find out whats available and pricing.A middle of the road or average bulb should be suffice for what your doing.

How do I thread the film through an 8mm B&H Projector


http://www.folkstreams.net/vafp/stream.php?id=97

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.

Belle & Howell Super 8 Projector model 254RS loading problem


Don't have the motor switch in the still position when loading -make sure it is on FORWARD. Look at the little holes in the film and make sure the film is on the same side as the little grooves on the drive gear.
PS -let the bulb cool off before try to move the projector ,the bulbs are very expensive and hard to find.
If you do use the still position to view a frame do it for just a few seconds or the bulb will burn the film. Good luck- Tom.
