Help: Bauer S 207 xl broken wire

Recommended Posts

Hello, recently I bought a Bauer s 207 xl from eBay in unknown condition and long behold it was the victim of battery acid leakage. Unfortunately during me repairing the thing two darn wires broke, found where the first orange wire goes but this gray and green wire has me confounded and looking for answers. So here is all I know it is the close vicinity to the batt. test switch and then goes to a pot and a resister. But tracing it out and even ohming it out did not turn anything up. So this is where I'm at ether I need a service manual or if any one has this camera, to tell me where this wire goes. I will include pictures in the two media fire direct links for what the wire looks like and where it comes from. Help will be appreciated, signed Avery first time super 8 shooter.

Well took a chance and found where it went so don't really need the help on that front. But there is one thing, how do you fool a super 8 cam to think it has a cart in it?

To see if all of the motors and electronics associated with it work and function well. And I found how to trick it into thinking it was 40 iso so I found where the iso notch is.

Super-8 cameras don't need a cart in to run.

So if it's not running, you haven't fixed it yet.

The ISO notch is above the gate, the filter notch below. With no cartridge, the 85 filter stays in and it meters at 25, as you have found.
