Recently I bought this little projector - see photo bellow. I'm having trouble threading the film through it. My trial and error has only helped to damage the film.
As this was made in Chicago, I'm using a power adapter reducing its voltage to 110v, since in my region the current is 220v. I'm saying because the bulb was gone after 1 or 2 minutes of use. I think it was due the long travel. Maybe it has shaken its springs too much. There is also what seems a glow of sparks coming out of the holes of the engine.
Any help would be apprecciated. tks
