.... They say that all Russian camera electronics will fail, in time....
Often the takeup hub is set to a *very* high torque, which will stall and burn out the motor or drive circuit when you actually thread film. And it seems to me I had one model in here with what looked like TTL (5 volt) logic running on 9 volts on purpose.
So if Bush starts WWIII next month by attacking Iran, maybe we'll have a fighting chance since Russia's ICBMs also have Russian electronics, from the same factory I hear. ... ;-)

=Hi guys. I just bought a battery for my Konvas 7-m and tried to run it. (I had never run the camera =before) I used a Bescor 12v 7amp battery with a 4 pin XLR. The motor does run. But it runs very slowly, =not even 1 frame per second i would say.
If you have problem with camera, you can ask me detailed.
I'm camera mechanic repair of Konvas,Kinor cameras.
The first questin, What motor have your Konvas camera ? This si 17EP-16 APk or 15EPSS or any other ?
The next test. You need disconnect motor from camera and run motor separately.
Cam be problem with camera, motor, power cord, battery and more other.
From my experience, all Konvas cameras need service and re-lube.
I use my Konvas-2M camera with 17EP-16 APK motor with 12v 7 ah battery and battery work very good.
