I'm new to the forum but I've been into all forms of 8mm for years. Recently, I obtained an almost cosmetically perfect Sankyo Super 8 Sound-501 projector. It came complete with all the original packaging and accessories, even the original box, all in excellent condition. The projector also came with a 2-pin plug instead of the usual. I got hold of a standard kettle lead and it all works perfectly in 18fps. However, when switched to 24fps there is no action whatsoever. All lights and the speaker remain on but that's it. I don't think its a belt problem because in 18fps mode it works instantly, not needing to warm-up. Its currently set to 220v and as I said, looks like its never been used.
Any help would be much appreciated,
Sankyo Sound-501 Projector
