Sounds like mine and Christians ... The long belt haven't got the right tension. I think Christian built in something to fix it. Check the belt tension at least. 1200's were the most difficult for me. Could see 1/4 or so of a movie then it stopped and film was going on to floor

Also, you may have to remove the take up gear with the spring on it. One screw and the gear comes off exposing a cork washer. This gets worn smooth and slips when the reel starts to get film on it. You can either sandpaper the cork on both sides or go to a local auto or hardware store and get some cork material and cut out a new one. This is what I did to mine just this past week end. Now it works great again.
