Hey all, picked up an Elmo ST-600M projector off ebay recently. Replaced the belts, and resoldered the speaker pin connector. Bulb burned out and I ordered a new one off ebay (EFP). Aparently there are more incarnations than one of these bulbs and the one I received isn't correct, as it is too long (reflector to pin dimension).

Since I planned on using this just to capture sound only anyway, I ran the films I am tranferring through without having the benefit of video for sync. To make a long story short, there must be a problem with the lower loop as the sound started fluttering in sync with the claw movement on the second reel. I tried resetting the loop several times to no avail. I'm on a deadline with this project and don't have the time to futz with it. I am temporarily using my Chinon SP 330MV, and it will suffice in the meantime. I'd like to find a serviced, known working condition Elmo ST-180, ST-600, or ST-1200, if anyone has one for sale.

Ideally, I'd like to get what I paid for it ($100), but that will probably be a stretch. If you have the time to play with this machine, make an offer.

John

Are you sure it is an EFP? Because an EFP is an EFP is an EFP. I've never had one that didn't fit a projector that was designed for one.

According to the paperwork that came with the bulb it is. Probably a cheap knock-off, as it is 1/4" longer than the original bulb.

In any event, should someone be interested, please make an offer.
