Hi guys. I have purchased my first Eumig P8 which came with many films. I watched a youtube video today which showed me how to load the film. Once plugged in, light came on making the right noise but the film ain't turning, any ideas?

Maybe needs a new drive belt?

If motor runs but no drive it is almost certain that the drive belt has perished,it is important that clean the goo off the pulleys before replacing the drive belt.It is MOST important that when you remove the back of the projector you do not plug the mains cord in as the motor is live even when not running!Depending on which model you have some lubrication might be necessary. I hope I am not preaching to the converted with the above advice.
