There should be a belt inside that transfers rotational power to the gear train. the belt may be a long spring type of belt.

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.

I have a minolta autodual 8 film projector but the front reel is turning backwards in the wrong direction. How do I change the direction to turn in the same direction as the back reel.

I assume you haven't put a reel of film onto the projector and looped it through to the back spool. The front spool usually 'freewheels' whilst the film is pulled through the projector and taken up by the motor driven rear spool.
It is possible that the friction drive and/or drive belt have deteriorated with age, as the mentioned projector is a rather elderly 'classic' of the dual 8mm series.
If in doubt, don't risk your family pictures. Try the unit with an old piece of film on small spools.

How do you change the lamp in a mod # 980Z keystone projector

There is a black and silver knob under the keystone label( right above the automatic label ) on the side of your projector. turn this knob counterclockwise to loosen the covering over the housing unit for the lamb. once the knob is loosened lift the housing unit off of the side of the projector. You wlll see the enclosure where the lamp fits into beneath it.
Make sure the power is off for your projector while doing so. Screw the lamb into the enclosure , then replace the covering and screw the black knob in clockwise until it tightens.

I have Bell&Howell 16mm film projector. Clean and has worked with no problems. Turned down sound during silent movie. Played next reel with sound but could not get sound. Then the reels stopped...

If you don't know how to service this type of machine, I would contact a Bell & Howell dealer and get it repaired/serviced. It possibly needs the magnetic head cleaning.

Eumig 610D Super 8 projector take-up reel not engaging at hub so will not rotate. Hub will rotate, not the reel. Perhaps worn key?

I think the Eumg 610D was a dual guage projector, capable of showing both Standard 8 and Super 8 films. (I'm basing my comments on the S810D I have in front of me, its sound "big brother").

To move between formats, there were two cogs internally that had to be changed, a film gate (two parts), and two adaptors/liners inserted into the centre of the film reels that transformed the centre from "a fat one" to "a thin one".

If the take up driver cog is rotating, but the reel is not, check whether the adaptor is in place.

You can see what they look like on eBay....

If the rear driver cog is not rotating, then it might be a worn/defective drive belt, in which case leave a further comment and we'll explore that.

Hope this helps

The ink tape return reel won't turn to take up the used ribbon

Try to turn the wheel manually and see if it turns properly. There must be a belt or gear assembly which turns both reels simultaneously. If its a belt, check to see if its broken.

Keystone 8mm movie projector

Re Keystone 68 projectors:
I join the growing throngs of folks who wish to view their family archives in 8 mm before submitting the reels to the digitals for conversion. Doesn't anyone have an answer for us? I continue to search, if I find, I'll post.
