Bolex h16 EBM / motor not running

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just thought I wanted to ask you a question since I just bought myself a Bolex h16 EBM. I have charged the batteries for a decent amount of hours. Placed it into the battery-grip and connected it to the camera. The red warning lamp turned on and stayed on and the motor did not run. I have searched it up, and saw that the motor may not run, because the lack of the batteries. I tried once more after this with another 16 hours of charge, but then the red warning light flickered and then stopped and the motor did not run, and now its no red warning light coming up. Does this mean the electronics in the camera is defected/burned (connection)? So my question is how can I get the motor to work? I hope its not the connection inside the camera itself, but rather the poor old batteries to the Bolex camera. Hope anyone of you guys could help me out, with some more knowledge about the camera. Thanks in advance:)
