Hi Jorge,
The problem of a jittery Frame is probably caused by the Take-up Reel tugging too strongly on the Film. I have the same problem with my Projector. I will soon be posting a Thread with pictures of a small Arm you can glue onto the Projector which will inhibit this tugging. A Super8 Projector does not have all of the fancy gears which a 16&35mm Projector has to prevent such tugging, but this Arm I propose will likely alleviate the problem. Keep checking for when I post that Thread. Below is an earlier Thread dealing with preventing jitteriness in the Camera.

At last, A SOLUTION TO JITTERINESS

Thank you so Terry, problem solved with only a strip of cardboard glued to create less tension in the tensor of the film in the projection window, now runs the whole movie until the end without jumping and very quiet and clear without scratching.

Now the problem is that, after having this resolved to no longer lamp light, perhaps burned by the diode be doing tests with it open and not refrigerate well, send to repair and not have it with me and now I can not put the photos of placement of the card.

Best Regards

Jorge
