Here's an instruction manual pdf I just found. I just got the same camera and it came with no instructions. http://www.apecity.com/manuals/pdf/bell_and_howell_200_and_200-t.pdf This is where the pdf came from. They have a list of other manuals for several different cameras. http://www.apecity.com/manuals/ Hope that helped if you haven't found it already. Peace!
