Got my scoopic battery recelled today and had the first chance to run the machine.
sadly, i dont think i can. whenever i close the film door and run the film through, an ear piercing screech comes from inside the mechanism (i dont know what it is, it only occurs when the door is closed.) the screech gets louder and faster when i shoot in 48fps. i checked to see if anything on the door was interfereing with the mechanism, but i dont really see any scratches on the door or inside the camera. its so unbearable, i think i would be hurting my film if i ever ran it through.

whats up?

i found the source of the problem! because whenever the door is open, the loop mechanism is closed, and it doesnt screech. i found however, that while running the camera with the door off and pressing down on the "open loop" tab inside the camera, the screech is heard. still wondering how i can fix this though.
I know that it only screams when the loop mechanism is open.
