  1. Hi everyone. I’m new to shooting Super 8 and just bought a fully tested and working Bell & Howell Filmosonic XL 1235. I loaded the batteries in and everything seemed to be working fine. All of a sudden, the motor stopped and the cue light stayed on. The auto zoom buttons don’t seem to do anything apart from make a strange internal motor noise. In the view finder the only thing that now comes on is the under/over exposure red light, as opposed to everything else that should appear. There’s no manual with this camera so I can’t check what ways the batteries are supposed to go in (although I would hope it’d be pretty obvious). It just seems strange that the camera now isn’t functioning. It seems odd that the cue light stays on constantly but the main motor now doesn’t respond. Does this sound like a problem anyone has faced before? Cheers, Paul
