Arriflex 16SR red light in view finder, running for a second then stops

Recommended Posts



I’m using an Arriflex 16SR with an external 12v battery. The camera is working fine, pressed the test button and everything seems to be working as it should BUT when I put the switch down to start filming it runs for 1 second and then stops. The film is running through fine, and just the motor stops.


The battery has been charged for a long period of time (over 7hours) so I don’t think it is this. What could be the potential problems?


please help!
