Hello!

I'm trying to find a repair service for my Braun Visacustic 2000. Witther doesn't offer this service by the moment, so I don't know where to go...

Thanks in advance!

Afraid I can't help you - but what's wrong with it?

Marc, Jan's right. There are several people on this forum that might be able to guide you through a repair. They did for me more than once. [Wink]

Thanks, but I believe that my projector needs some serious servicing: there's a lot of flickering, uneven sharpness, uneven velocity... I would like to go to a professional, as I have no technical skills for these kind of jobs...

That DOES sound serious. [Eek!] Did you get the projector in this condition, or is it something that developed over time? (Was it fine before?)

I wonder if that could be the infamous plastic gear that tends to disintegrate inside the projector. Wittner Kinotechnik sells a metal replacement part which you can either put in yourself or have them do it.

But then I can only guess...

Hi,

a) GK-Film can repair most stuff:
http://www.englisch.film-super8.de/
(GK is known to do a good job - and is cheaper than other shops)

b) Marland can still repair some projectors - as long as their spare parts lasts:
http://www.marland-service.de
(Marland is the only repair-shop that I've used myself so far - and only for cameras. Their prices are okay, too.)

c) Geissler (recommended by Wittner while Wittner's repair-shop is closed) might be able to help you, too:
http://www.geissler-service.de

d) FFR-Film can repair some projectors - as long as their spare parts lasts (7,50 EUR for 15min) :
http://www.ffr-film.de/Katalog/index.htm

e) The super8wiki has got a repair-listing, too:
http://super8wiki.com/index.php/Category:FAQ#Professional_Repair_and_Service

f) These shops have been able to repair Braun-projectors in 2004 (list taken from http://home.arcor.de/super8film/Super8/reparat.htm - if you do a google-search, you'll probably find their webpages, too. Unless stated otherwise, these shops are located in Germany, hence you'll have to replace the "single-0" in the telephon/fax-numbers with a 0049 from Spain):

Wow!!!!

Many many thanks!!!!! That's a HUGE lot of information...
I'm going to try GK Film. They've made great things for the super-8 format (pressure plate,cinevia...)

Thanks again,

Marc

Hello,

in my opinion the best repair shop for BRAUN/NIZO and BAUER super8mm projectors and cameras is KURT SCHACHERL in Olching near Munich / Germany (http://www.video-technik-schacherl.de).

Mr. Schacherl has been trained by BAUER / BRAUN themselves and he knows all BAUER and BRAUN machines best. Mr. Schacherl does great work and the prices he takes are really fair. By the way: Mr. Schacherl repairs BAUER and BRAUN machines for over 30 years now.

Best Wishes
