These guys obviously have something to sell. PLEASE DON'T THROW YOUR MOVIE PROJECTORS AWAY. DVD-R has a useful life of about 5 years at best.

To answer the question posted: As the bulb ages, the extreme heat causes a bulge in the glass and that's why the bulb won't slide down. The only option is to tap the top of the bulb with a screwdriver (or similar instrument) and shatter it--then unscrew the housing and let the mess fall out. Be sure to protect yourself from shards! Once you clean up the mess you can install a new bulb (DAR, I believe).

Once you see the rich gradations color of real film (even 50 year old film), you'll be hooked!

There is a worn belt in there, sounds like to me. And, yes, cleaning is always good. Remember not to touch the lens with your fingers as this will lead to early bulb failure. farmerbear at

How to replace a worm gear on a Bell & Howell model 2585 16mm film projector.

Replacing the worm gear on a Bell & Howell 16mm film projector is a very long and involved process requiring a complete teardown. It is similar to replacing a blown head gasket in an automobile engine. The worm gear is the heart of the mechanism and takes a lot of time consuming labor just to get to it. In the process you lose a bunch of critical adjustments which require resetting with special Bell & Howell tools/jigs/gauges. Many of these projectors are at least 30 to 40 years old and will also require re-lubrication.
The gear itself costs around $30-ish and takes 3 to 8 hours of labor to replace. Richard Patchett in Michigan and International Cinema Equipment in Miami, Florida does the worm gear replacement.

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.

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.

My Bell & Howell cube slide projector has a strpped drive gear that rotates the slide tray. Is there any one that can help regarding parts or places that might do a repair?

Bell & Howell Cube Slide Projector Gear, New Item condition: New Quantity: More than 10 available Price: US $15.00 Approximately C $15.54 Buy It NowBuy It Now
This is the gear that goes bad on Bell and Howell cube type slide projectors. If you have one of these projectors you can pretty much expect the gear in your machine to go bad. The original gears were made out of an inferior material that was too soft. New old stock gears would be made of the same material and although they have never been used they most likely will fail right away since they are made of the same inferior materal. They were made soft to reduce the mechanical noise when the gear runs. This was told to me by the person who designed them at Bell & Howell. These new replacement gears are made out of Delrin, an excellent material for gears. Delrin is sometimes used to make gears that are normally made of metal. Don’t miss your opportunity to finally fix that old projector or get a spare gear for your working machine while they are available.
Detailed installation instructions will be included with every gear.

I have a Bell & Howell slide cube projector that has been packed away for many years. The rotating disk will not advance the slides for viewing. The disk seems stuck. I have been unable to find anyone...

I occassionaly experience the same problem. I don't know why it occurs, however; here's what I do to get the projector moving again: 1) Face the right side of the projector wherein the lens will be pointing to your right. on the middle top of the projector edge closest to you you will see a top access tab. 2) Move and hold the tab to the left and lift open the top of the projector. 3) On the edge of the rotating tray at about the 5:00 position (my guess as I'm not at the projector now) you will slot in the circular plate aligned with another slot on the fixed casing. Inside this sloted area there is a metal pieve that spans the slot across the two surfaces. 3) Take a screw driver and giggle this metal peice, pressing dow and releasing, and / or in and out, while pressing the slide advance advance forward and back. I found no ryhme or reason to this or that it readilly works after so many jiggles, however; it alsways does usually after anywherefrom a few seconds to a minute or two. This isn't a fix but a temporary workaround. I'm in the process of sulling my thousands of slide to be digitized, after which I will no longer need this wonderful legacy machine. Hope this helps. Regards,
