Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.

SOURCE: Projector works fine, but will not advance slides.

Try a different tray (preferably a Kodak 80-slide tray). If it works, then the problem is a tray problem. If it makes no difference, check the "SELECT" function. If that works, then your projector requires an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. If it does not work, remove the tray and push the "REVERSE" button 4 or 5 times (this will clear a mechanism jam if one has occurred). If you still have nothing, then chances are that the slide change mechanism drive belt is broken or stretched. try the diagnostic things I suggested. If they are no help, I'm sorry to say you need the help of a factory-trained repair dealer. Good Luck !!

How to load and view with a gaf 2388 projector


Usually there is a series of clips or levers of some sort that allows the film to pass around the sound drums and alignment path behind the projector lens. There is usually a line printed inside the projector to show the thread path for the film around the various mechanisms. But before you do that you might want to consider finding a photo shop that converts the film to a CD format. All of the old film media breaks down over time and you may be able to enhance it, preserve it and avoid burning it up in the projector(a common occurrence in those days) all at the same time.

I need a description for this item


This is a movie projector for 8 MM Film and Super 8 MM film (That is why it is called 'Duel Eight". Does it have a 'Volume Control' knob for sound film? If not is is just for silent film. Does the light come on when turned on and film engaged?

The film stuck when I feed it


This is a common problem with these projectors. Usually happens after a film breaks or a bad splice goes through it. Pull the lens straight out and then remove the lens housing that holds the lens and the focus controller. The screws for the housing are behind the glued on cover that says frame and focus. Remove the 4 screws behind it, slowly lift the cover and watch for a loose leaf spring that sits behind the cover. It will fall out if the projector is standing up, so lay it on its back and it will just sit there so you know where to put it during assembly.

THREADING FILM IN A ELMO FP-C PROJECTOR


Is your film super 8mm? If yes, then the red sprocket above the lens should be pushed in, and the bottom black sprocket will stick out. If you have regular 8mm, then the black bottom sprocket should be pushed in. If the sprockets are not in the correct position, push the green lever forward (towards the screen) then open the two orange tabs, then push in the correct sprocket. Once you have the correct sprockets aligned, close the orange tabs. How to tell if you have 8mm or super 8mm film: Look carefully at the film image. If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm.

HAVING TROUBLE THREADING FILM - ELMO FP-C

If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm. If your green lever is stuck in the forward position, that's because the film is not threaded. Once your film threads correctly, the green lever will spring back.

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.
