Hey,

 

I've got a Bolex EBM 16mm cam in pretty good condition that doesn't seem to run. I've tested it with multiple power sources and the red light turns on but the motor does not run when you press the button. I've tried to find people with Bolex knowledge in the Vancouver area but have had no luck! Any ideas as to what could be the problem? Or any suggestions as to my next course of action? Thanks in advance!

Probably a blown power transistor or something similar in the electronics.

If you want to have it repaired, send me a PM.
