    The manual will tell you if you are operating it correctly. Taking it apart will tell you if it all works. When you get it working, you can sell it working with a manual. For $11 I think it is a fair punt :>/

SOURCE: bulb change on Revere Projector

Yep. Very Helpful. I also had to disconnect both casings for the bulb and the switches. Then, I had to pull the bulb out of the tower, then push with both hands, ever so slightly, then twist twice to the left, then the bulb came out. Thanks for your help.

I have a Revere 777 8mm projector which needs servicing. Do you offer this service, and where are you located?

The company ceased to trade in 1960 and was sold to 3M.

You have an antique!

Revere Camera Company

Servicing will not be easy and you will almost certainly have to ship it. Try these links, you do not say where YOU are located. Add your city to the search box on my search.

Revere automatic slide projector model P-888 It turns on and blower and bulb work fine but I do not know how to open the shutter on the lens to see the slides... any help would be appreciated.

Watch the slides are they loading?, it will very obvious to the ***** eye. The lens has no cover do that is not the problem. It is a common problem that the plastic slide loading arm breaks.

Shutter stuck on Ektagrahpic III projector

First of all, the shutter will only open IF there is a slide in the gate. Assuming there is a slide in the gate, there are 2 things that could be preventing the shutter from opening:
1. Most likely - the shutter is spring-loaded. If the spring unhooks or is missing, the shutter will not open.
2. There is an adjustment that needs to be made after the spring is replaced or re-hooked (or just is out of adjustment. Refer to the Kodak Ektagraphic Service Manual @ the Kodak web site:
Good Luck! Jim

    Have a Kodak 650H projector Little black door does not open and let light come through

    There is supposed to be a spring on the shutter that snaps it open when a slide is in the gate. It sounds like that spring is either broken, unhooked or missing.
