My Kodak 8mm A20 projector was working famously when all of a sudden, it would not load the film without jamming. It seemed like a blockage. Help!

 First make sure your batteries are OK , camera will not work without two 1.5 v batteries. If your camera still doesnt work this is probably  because the shutter is cocked but you cannot release the shutter and that is why you cannot advance the transport mechanism. The shutter release mechanism needs repairing first. SREMEDY : take bottom cover off ( 4 screws ) and locate 220 mf 6v capacitor ( it is the only one in this part of the camera , cant miss it ). Replace the capacitor while you keep an eye on the polarity ( indicated on the casing of the capacitor ) and you camera should work fine ( dont forget camera needs  two 1.5v  batteries to work ! )

SOURCE: How do I thread the film through an 8mm B&H Projector

http://www.folkstreams.net/vafp/stream.php?id=97

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.

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.

Hi, my dad's Kodak Brownie 8 A15 regular 8mm film projector has an issue with the knob. It will turn to the rewind position but not Project. Does it have to be pushed in ? I hate to force it.


http://www.grantmillar.net/kodak-brownie8-manual-15-g-version1.pdf. Doesn't seem to need it. Check to make sure the knob hasn't turned ie off is project and rewind is off and there is another setting after rewind.

Have split image when watching 8mm film video.


If my memory serves me correctly, you should have an adjustment knob somewhere... and it seems like it was marked "frame". Another caution: I assume you know that 8mm and Super 8mm are not interchangeable. However, some of the old projectors (like a Kodak I had) had a twist knob that would change the projector back and forth in order to play either film. Just some thoughts...

THREADING FILM IN A ELMO FP-C PROJECTOR


Is your film super 8mm? If yes, then the red sprocket above the lens should be pushed in, and the bottom black sprocket will stick out. If you have regular 8mm, then the black bottom sprocket should be pushed in. If the sprockets are not in the correct position, push the green lever forward (towards the screen) then open the two orange tabs, then push in the correct sprocket. Once you have the correct sprockets aligned, close the orange tabs. How to tell if you have 8mm or super 8mm film: Look carefully at the film image. If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm.

If the sprocket hole is next to the middle of the image, it's super 8mm. If the sprocket hole is between images, it's 8mm. If your green lever is stuck in the forward position, that's because the film is not threaded. Once your film threads correctly, the green lever will spring back.

Will an 8mm movie projector be able to use 8mm super film?


Not without major adaptations.

The sprocket sizes and spacing are different as are the actual frame sizes. A dual standard projector used to exist which came with the necessary kit to convert between the two different standards but wasn't popular as users tended to shoot on one or the other so didn't want to pay the high premium for a dual format projector. The dual format projector was also a lot less reliable if it was used as intended with regular component swapping. There's also the matter of 8mm being a spool based system and super 8 being a cartridge loading system.

In summary, use the correct projector to match the film you wish to display. Both types are usually easy to get for free on local FreeCycle and Freegle groups.

I hope that my free answer has been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my reply.
