Hi all,

As you can see from video, something is stopping the green auto threading button on my Elmo FP-A from locking in place and unlocking.

I have to manually hold it in place to thread a film

Any suggestions?

It's difficult to see from the straight-on view in your video Phil, but compare it to this angled view of my projector. It looks like there may be a piece missing. Look at the bar with the ring attached. Does yours have this piece?
