I have a bell & Howell 1623, we took it out last night to watch some super 8 movies. The first one ran fine. After that the machine won't feed the film through. It looks like it stop right before the part where the light hits and won't go any further. Any ideas what would cause this, or how to fix it? Thanks

Check that there isn't a little fragment of film in the film path
Jason, and make sure that the ends of your film are trimmed
accordingly.Then try again.Good luck.
