  1. Hi everyone, Did some shooting a few weeks back, three rolls of 7219, all from Pro8mm. First two rolls worked great, but the moment I loaded up the third roll, the problems began. As I started rolling with my Beaulieu 6008s, I kept getting an error light after a few seconds of "rolling". After some trial and error with the sharpie trick, I figured out the cartridge was jammed. I tried multiple times the slap trick to loosen the film, to no avail. Eventually, I watched a Pro8mm video that suggested pulling some of the film out gently, then rolling it back into the cartridge. This appeared to work, and I continued the next day shooting, finishing out the roll. I got the footage back, and everything came out wonderful, besides the last half of that final 3rd roll. It was more or less blurry, and would pop in and out of focus. I've attached a clip where you can see this happening (both graded and log). https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ai1fvD82pZL5i7mGggdKIkt07RwXcE9P/view?usp=sharing Is this an issue with the cartridges pressure plate and the film being previously jammed, or could it be an issue that is coming from the camera? Wondering peoples thoughts....
  2. ARGH!!! :o Well, my colleague Andy only paid £109 GB Pounds plus shipping via eBay for a cosmetically fine Beaulieu 4008 ZM II but I also purchased a new cell, a grip/handle and charger at over £100 GBP. After shooting two test carts without any problems (other than feeling a little odd to hold it) the whole camera now seems to have seized up and yet it was sold as tested and fully functional. By all accounts, I'm looking at somewhere between £200 to £300 for a service/repair plus the shipping/customs charges on top of that. So I've asked the seller to kindly refund £50 (and I'll keep the two Tri-X carts that came with it) and then the Beaulieu can sit on the shelf as an expensive paperweight for now. I really do hope that the seller accepts this? I fully appreciate it was cheap to start with but I will push for a possible return and a full refund otherwise. As it's all so disappointing and I've already given Andy back his £123.45 in full. Am I being fair on the seller and will it even be worth even trying to get this Beaulieu fixed later on? Bill
