Hi .... my name is
(Radio ham callsign: G1EIO)
If you need any information
of the items on this website
you can contact me on the following
I have a small collection of
MiniCine Projectors of my own.
I no longer buy MiniCine Projectors
Many of you write to me asking ....
'How do I change the bulb or how can
I get inside my MiniCine Film Projector
so I can oil the working parts?'
I hope this helps you sort out your small probem.
First unscrew the lens (take it out) .... next put the handle
in your right hand and the lens hole in your left hand ....
now turn the handle backwards ....
do this till it comes out (take it out altogether) ....
Now turn the projector on its back .... you will see
three (3) screws .... unscrew the three (3) screws
.... now .... GENTLY.... press down on the controls
on the top of the projector, this will push the workings
out of the case .... like I said be gentle
put a drop of oil in a clean tin lid
and using a kiddies small paint brush
you can now lightly oil the workings
'3-in-one Multi-Purpose Drip Oil'
on the working parts ....
***DO NOT PUT ANY OIL IN THE FILM PATH ***
you can also change the bulb if you need too.
When you have done what you
need to do put it all back together....
slid the workings back in the case and put the
three (3) screws back in .... now gently put the handle back
the small hole and turn it clockwise
till the workings start working .... last of all put the
lens back in the lens hole.
CLEANING THE LENS
Only use a soft cloth to clean the lens....
Do not use any cleaner as the some of the lens
is made of plastic.
I hope this helps you ....
If you need anymore help please email me.
You can ring me if you wish

1940's and 50's
