Hello All,

I wonder if anyone can tell me if it's easy to fix the footage counter on a regular Arri SR-2 magazine.

This is the small rotary counter on the take up side ( ...not the feed side / arm roller gauge ).

 

I'm guessing there's a belt between it and the plastic mag-to-camera drive gear.

Any advice would be most welcome.

 

Many thanks,

John S  :(

How easy it is to fix depends on what's wrong! Yes a spring belt runs from the drive shaft to the counter worm gear. You can access the area by removing the plate with pressure plate (2 larger screws at top right and bottom left) and the small cover plate under the counter (2 screws).

Nice one Diamond Dom !

I discovered the worm was a little sticky so ( very lightly ) touched it with some oil and that freed it up nicely.

 

Thanks very much for your expert advice - it's very much appreciated  :rolleyes:

 

Best wishes,

John S
