I have been given a GOKO TC-301 Telecine [super-8] and, without a manual, am trying to get it working. It can be seen at www.goodlight.net/graphics/GOKO-TC-301.jpg. The machine has a number of issues. To start with:

When I click from "Still" to "Forward," all the visible gears start turning, but the take-up reel remains motionless. Also, when I put it in "Reverse," the supply reel does not move. I have opened up the arms at top/crank handles and see a pulley inside each. They appear to be intact.

1. Is there a switch somewhere to activate the take-up and supply reels? Or is there something else I am overlooking?

2. Do I have it threaded properly?GOKO-TC301.jpg

You say the pulley is intact, but there may be a broken or slipping belt inside the arms. If broken, superglue may fix it, or you might find replacements on eBay.
The lace looks OK.

I have taken the arm covers off and the pulleys are intact and relatively tight, but the wheels inside the arms are not turning.

Curiously, the plate on the side (see below) says, "TELECINE PLAYER TC-301/302." TC-302 is regular 8mm. I assume this is probably a plate the company just used for either machine. OTOH, the supply reel fits regular 8. I've been advised that the machine simply needs a super-8 adapter on that hub.
Unless it turns out there is some way to get this machine to actually take regular-8, I'd just like to get it working normally to sell.

Do you still own the GOKO TC-301? If you would like to sell it, I would be interested in purchasing it as is.
