Question about Cameras
If you can hear the motor running then it is most likely the belt that connects the motor to the takeup is broken or stretched out and not longer driving the reel. That is a pretty easy repair.
If you cannot hear the motor then the trouble is more serious and probably not worth repair.

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.

Check the drive belt, if the belt is too loose it will not pull the film inbeasuse ther is not enough tension on the pulleys and the belt will slip. If you need the belt, good luck finding it as there are nearly impossible to find.

in accordance with this feature again most of the projectors have a switch that can run either of the version..So,your projector should have a switch to handle either of the standards.8 mm film is slower than super 8 ..You must have recorded super 8mm and now triying to play on 8 mm..If I knew your movie camera model I can tell the which one is.As far as I have checked your projector can only hande and not capable
Sorry about it.you must find another projector that can run your super 8 mm..just in case if you need a user manual pls visit the link below..
