Help! I just got my first projector and I was first setting it up. I ran a film through it and it wasn't coming out to the other reel and I stopped it and rewound it and it ended up breaking my film leader and breaking the very beginning of the actual film. I tried again and it still isn't feeding through. So I took off the cover to see what was up and when it gets to this part with a spring it stop going and the film just keeps bunching up. What do I do. I have never use a Super 8mm projector before?

Did you push the loop button before threading the film?. That will be around your index finger (last photo)

No I didn't, shoot, so I killed some of my film for no reason?

The Chinon 7000 DOES NOT require the loop button to be pushed before threading, with the cover on you can't even see it.

The whole feeding process is automatic and the LOOP FORM is controlled by the main function switch.

Wait what loop button?

I am confused when it gets to the part right before the spring in the second picture, the films stops moving then the rest bunches up. What do I do?

OK if your film has reached the position on the second photo, it means you already push the loop button (ps: my Chinon 330 MV has the button pushed automatically when the film is thread. So maybe your projector has the same mechanism too)

If film is still bounced up then your need to trim the leader. If you do not have a film trimmer, just use any scissors and cut a couple millimeter from the current leader. Trim it by making a sort of a ">" shape.

ps: your leader is seen to has been damage. I think you need to try with other films otherwise although you have trimmed it, it will keep bouncing.

It has all been figured out. Pat (who sold me it helped me). The Post office dropped the box and a bin slid out to feed the film the rest of the way!
