Question about Projector Accessories
Problem with threading the film. The projector has worked recently, but now it doesn't seem to want to load the film, but begins to fold up the leader or the film before it gets far onto the take-up reel. Sometimes it seems to be a problem with the take-up reel not advancing to pull the film through.
The Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload was made that way ON PURPOSE. The last foot or so must be manually pulled from the projector. As described in the manual, "this safeguard has been designed to prevent the end of your film from flapping against the projector after your movie is completed."
If the entire film was going into the take up reel at the end automatically, then THAT was a defective occurence. It is not supposed to do that.

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.
