  1. In 2017 I sent my Beaulieu 708 HTI Super 8 Stereo High Power Lamp projector to Ritter media for a tune up. Here is the original thread: The machine was returned with damage due to shipping/insufficient packing and the original owner of Ritter Media refused to accept responsibility. After numerous emails after the fact Ritter stopped responding. Occasionally I would send an email out of the blue and re-iterate my request for a complete refund of the payment I made to help offset the cost of the 2nd repair which was performed brilliantly by Bjorn Andersson of Beaulieu Sweden. And as
  2. Here is an update to this situation: The unit had been sent to Bjorn of Beaulieu Sweden and I am glad to say the machine has been repaired 100%. Not only in terms of working condition but cosmetically it has been repaired as well. He worked his magic and has been able to straighten the bent chassis to perfection. The arm has been replaced and is aligned as before. The lamphouse door fan has been replaced. And the power supply unit under the machine has been repaired as well. Functions are working quietly and smoothly and everything has been aligned to original spec. Beautiful wor
  3. That is a beautiful display. Best of luck! Next time I come to Berlin I'll stop by. :)
  4. Thanks for all your replies. If anyone knows how I can get legal representation in Germany that would be great. Currently the item is boxed and packed for shipment to Sweden if all goes well. Thanks for the link Jurgen. I have sent it to Ritter Media. The machine was not completely working to spec actually and that is the reason it was sent overseas. I would never send anything that far and at that much expense just because. I assumed incorrectly that a Beaulieu repair center is a Beaulieu repair center and that they would all be as professional and precise as Bjorn. I was wrong. The machi
  5. I have been lucky in the sense that the few projectors that arrived to me damaged were all insured so I was able to not have to go into my pocket to pay for the damages. But these were from individuals and not companies. This is the first time I have had an item damaged during shipment sent to me from a "professional" company. I just assumed the item would have been professionally packed for its long journey back to the USA so it was a shock when I opened it up to find only Flo Pak. I shipped it in a custom made box and why they didn't use the same box to return it to me I will never kno
  6. Bjorn! The best.. I should have sent the projector to you then I wouldn't have had this post. Email sent. Thanks!
  7. And the worst part.. the little pieces that fell out of the Ballast/Ignitor box.
  8. I wanted to put out there a public service announcement/warning in case anyone is looking into using Ritter Media http://www.rittermedia.de for the repair of any Super 8 equipment you may have. I came across them many years ago because I saw their stickers on a Beaulieu 6008 Super 8 camera. They modify them and I had heard they did good work. So around April of this year I contacted them to see if they could put my Beaulieu 708 HTI back to original factory spec as they told me that they have the original Beaulieu parts as well as the original service personnel that worked on the items when
  9. Hi Erkan, I am the person who posted on the other website about Kent Bulza of Single 8. I have sent you a private email in the hopes that you can help me in contacting him.

  12. I am a little bummed as I really loved the footage I shot with the Single 8 Fuji R25. That was a great picture with fantastic colors. I liked it better than the Kodachrome 40. However I really loved Kodachrome 25 in DS8. That gave me some of the best footage I have shot. And my favorite Black and White is TriX. That is a GREAT Super 8 film. I am anxious to try the Fuji Velvia 50 in Super 8 as well as the 100D Ektachrome and the 64T. Even though many say that Super 8 is on the decline I can't remember a time when we had such an assortment of really nice film stocks available to us. BTW-Its gr
