There must be a way to get into the projectors to see why it doesn’t work.
Anyone else have one?

Clinton... I saw this photo with the side removed where the handle is. Perhaps remove the handle and see if the side comes off.

Thanks Janice,
I have managed to lift the side plate a bit but I just can't work out how to remove that handle.
I have tried with a bit of force,but not too much as I don't want to break it,pulling it up thinking it was just pushed on,and I've tried to see if it unscrews some way.
Got nowhere so far!
But it must come off some how?

The handle on my Pathe' Baby unscrews counter clockwise. It may just be stuck. Try some WD40 [Smile]

In the end I didn’t try to clean it,I got a 240v to 12v power lead used for laptops etc and that powered the lamp.
And with a bit of experimentation worked out how to use it.
It goes quite well but is hard on film if it gets stuck where it exits the cartridge,tears the film.But the projector still maintains the picture,no top or bottom loops on this projector.

Here it is projecting ... best brightness is in a dark room ...
