Nope, sorry. Germany would have won. And you personally would be in the Hitlerjugend, little boy. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Will lubing the projector make it jam less? When it started jamming I used the loop reset and nothing happened. Or do I need to turn it off and then press it?

The lamp required is 12V 75W, it says so on the sticker and on the broken bulb that came with the projector. The one I used was also 12v 75w. It said EFN on it, no idea what that means, but I did some searching and it was indeed compatible with the Fuji M40. Now, the bulb I used was a Ushio from "Ne...

Maybe you want to view it as invading but it makes makes one wonder why the allies bothered to free Europe and Germany of the Nazi's If there were no streams of moving pictures like today. Certainly not because of some correspondance, refugee reports and still aerial photo's in your view. You are o...

Loop reset lever

What is the loop reset lever for? I have a B&H projector that has that too and I never figured out what it was for. By the way, it probably needs a lube because it is jamming way too often and sometimes burning a frame.

The projector is brand new and practically unused. The box seems near mint and has no bumps or scratches. But the previous owner did try it and burned his bulb. I wish I had the manual for it. You are right, I meant left. *chomp* 1 sandwich later.... Hey I finally figured it out! The backwards windi...

I see there's a stepped thingy (tm) coming off the motor. Change speeds and watch that thingy for movement relative to the drive wheel or whatever it is. If it doesn't move, try to find out why. Looks like it's a mechanical bug, which makes sense (physical motion leading to failure over time), and ...

Speaking of "F for Fake", I see that somebody with a wrestling mask fixation and confrontational attitude is posting as "Blue Demon" over at cinematography.com (only days after another mask guy abandoned his nom de guerre and account). Same guy? Or an acolyte? Stay tuned ... That's actually funny s...

If you look at the settings on the right knob, they are REV and FWD with other stuff like Normal, Slow, Still, Slow, Normal, Rewind under. Well, switching between them doesn't change the speed of the reels, only the noise of the motor. Feed reel is turning furiously counterclockwise. It is not just ...

My house's current is 110V. I do not see a selector for voltage on the projector. It comes from Japan and I think they use 110V as well.

Thanks for the input. But, my FEED reel is turning the wrong way, not the takeup. Takeup works fine.

I think this projector has other problems than just the lamp. One of the settings is "Still" and the reels still rotate when set to it...

Projector annoyances (with photos)

I own a Fujicascope M40 projector. I tried it on just now and had a couple weird problems. First, I replaced the lamp with a fresh new bulb, and as soon as I turned it on the lamp burnt out. I don't know why this happened. Also, I tried loading film into it but the feed reel was turning counter-cloc...
