Belle & Howell Super 8 Projector model 254RS loading problem

We have the above projector and cannot figure out how to load the film. My sister put it on the reels, but fried a frame. Any way we can get instructions how to load it? Really want to see the films. Thanks, joshar

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.

I need a manual for Bell & Howell Lumina MX60 for an elderly person - need instructions how to load film.


Spec says it's auto-load. From what I recall of my own projector, you mount the input film reel on the front 'arm', extending it as necessary to give clearance, switch on the projector, then feed the free end of the film into the appropriate orifice at the front of the projector.
It then takes over, feeds the film through and wraps it around the take-up spool automatically. It may be necessary to cut the end of the leader on a diagonal to feed it in (not each time the film is loaded, just the first time.)
Once the film has fed through, switch on the lamp, focus and enjoy.

Bought a Bell & Howell Super 8 projector 481A off EBay and can't figure out how to thread the film.


I found a web (D'Antiques Movie Projectors ) site for an 482a projector which is almost identical to the 481a projector. It had the information I needed.

You also dalled and provided a toll free number at which I may be able to purchase an owners manual.

Thank you
