Hi guys, I hope some one can help me, I have just tried to run my Derann copy of Carry On Abroad on my GS1200, only to find the bottom loop keeps disappearing. I can restore it with the loop restorer only to find it disappears again after a couple of seconds. The print used to run fine on my Chinnon SS1200 and all my other films run fine on the GS1200. I have tried cleaning the first reel of Carry On with Cresclean Film Cleaner, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference. Any ideas gratefully received.
Regards and thanks, Clive

Clive, If all your films run good on your GS1200. Then its the film? Was the film trimmed? If that don't work. Then put more pressure on bottom roller! That helps keep the loop! Let me know how you made out! Leon.

Hi Leon, Thanks for taking the trouble to reply, I am not sure how to adjust the bottom roller, but I will have a look.
Thank you, Clive
