Howdy Friends-

Are there any videos posted (anywhere) on general projector maintenance? Lube, belts, adjusting speed, ETC ... Nothing to high tech, just the basics.

Thank You.

for which machines Timothy??

procedures and lube specs are very different from one machine to another, just in the same way as cars, washing machines etc etc.

Yeah, I guess that's pretty vague! [Smile]

I've had good luck with most projectors I've worked on. However the Bell & Howell Cast Iron 300-400Series (I think that's how you'd refer to them) is what I'm currently looking for.

There's a great video on You Tube demonstrating how to change the belt, but I'd also like to know what kind of lube to use and other than obvious places, where it goes.
