Setting Up
Place the POWER SUPPLY UNIT (Figure
1) on a firm table or other support of
convenient height, with the receptacle
away from the screen. The power sup­
ply unit will act as a base for the pro­
jector. Unwind the power cord. Set
the projector on the power unit, ap­
proximately centered front to rear,
and remove the projector cover. Be
guided as to the relative location of
the power supply /projector and screen
by the information on page 14.
Rotate the SUPPLY REEL ARM up and
forward as far as it will go. Raise the
TAKE-UP REEL ARM until the TAKE-UP
BELT can be put on the take-up pulley.
Do not twist the belts. When project­
ing film on 50-foot or 100-foot reels,
or film on reels with cores smaller
than two inches in diameter, remove
the belt from the supply pulley. With
these smaller reels, allow the belt to
rest between the pulley and the arm.
The belt should be replaced on the
pulley when the projector is run -in
reverse or when film is being rewound.
Insert the 6-prong PROJECTOR POW­
ER CORD PLUG into the power supply
unit, and then the 3-prong polarized
power unit plug into a 105- to 125volt, 60-cycle, a-c wall receptacle of
the grounding type. If you do not
have grounded receptacles, it is sug­
gested that for your convenience and
safety, the usual 2-prong receptacles
be replaced with 3-prong polarized re­
ceptacles, properly grounded. If an
extension cord is to be used, be sure
that it is a 3-wire cord with a
grounded plug, that it has adequate
current-carrying capacity (No. 16
AWG wire or larger) to avoid over­
heating the cord, and that it is as
short as possible to prevent excessive
voltage drop.
Position the speaker as close to the
screen as possible. Uncoil enough
SPEAKER CABLE (Figure 2) to connect
the plug to the SPEAKER JACK (Figure
1) in the amplifier. The speaker should
be placed at the ear level of the audi­
ence for proper sound distribution.
Move the FAN SWITCH and LAMP
SWITCH to "ON" (the lamp will not
start unless the fan has been started).
The nature of an arc lamp is such that
it may take several surges of high­
voltage direct current from the power
supply unit to start the lamp. This can
be noted as a series of clicking noises.
After the arc is established, less than
45 seconds are required for the lamp
to reach normal operating intensity
and color temperature.
Notice: The lamp should not be operated
for less ffian three minutes. Operation for
periods shorter than this can reduce lamp
life, diminish light output, and cause un·
even illumination.
Push the MASTER CONTROL to the right
as far as it will go. This will turn on
the projector motor, move the douser
out of the way, and allow projection
of the light beam. Rotate the lens back
and forth until the margins of the
lighted area on the screen are sharp.
If the lighted area needs to be
raised, turn the ELEVATION CONTROL
clockwise until the area is centered on
the screen.
While the projector is running for­
ward, move the SPEED SELECTOR to
SILENT or SOUND, depending upon
the film being projected. To move the
selector from SOUND to SILENT,
push the lever to the left as far as it
will go; to go from SILENT to
SOUND, push the selector upward to
release it-the selector will automati­
cally move to the sound position.
Push the master control to the OFF
position. If immediate projection is
planned, leave the fan and lamp
turned on. However, if there will be a
substantial interval of time between
setting up and projection, turn off the
lamp and fan switches (providing the
lamp has been on at least three min­
�). Turn the VOLUME CONTROL fully
counterclockwise and the TONE BAL­
ANCE CONTROL to NORMAL. Momen­
tarily depress the AMPLIFIER POWER
BUTTON to turn on the amplifier. There
will now be a red glow in the POWER­
ON INDICATOR. Make sure that the
SOUND-INPUT SWITCH is set at FILM.
If, with the projector and power
supply properly connected to the pow­
er source, the circuit breaker opens,
reset it by pushing down the red but­
ton. A serviceman should check the
amplifier if the circuit breaker will
not stay closed.
Note: Even though the exciter lamp is Ii�
/
the circuit breaker can be open.
A table lamp or night light plugged
into the THREAD LIGHT RECEPTACLE
will give sufficient light to thread the
film without the use of room light.
This lamp will be automatically
turned off when the master control
lever is moved to forward PROJECT.

Preparation for
Threading
Place the reel of film on the SUPPLY
SPINDLE (Figure 3) with the film feed­
ing clockwise off the reel and the per­
forations toward you. Lock the reel
onto the spindle with the LATCH.
Place an empty reel on the TAKE-UP
SPINDLE and lock it in place.
Make sure that the REWIND TAB is
latched in the vertical position.
Check to see that the speed selector
is properly set for the film to be pro­
jected.
Open the supply and take-up sprock­
et CLAMPS.
Open the GATE by pushing forward
on the tab until it latches.
Turn the trial THREAD KNOB until
the white line on the knob is toward
you. With the knob in this position,
the pulldown claw will be withdrawn ·
from the film channel.

just touch the roller ('!!2! as show!!_jn
Figure 41.
Pull back the sound drum PRESSURE
ROLLER and place the leader over the
roller and under the SOUND DRUM. Re­
lease the roller, making sure that the
leader is between the flanges.
Pass the leader behind the DAMPER
ROLLER and between the LOWER
SPROCKET and CLAMP. Engage the
perforations with the sprocket teeth
and close the clamp. Make sure that
the leader is against the damper
roller.
Press down the loop-forming roller
as far as it will go and then release it.
l
This action will correctly position the
upper and lower loops. Turn the trial
thread knob to engage the pulldown
claw in the leader perforations. Fig­
ure 4 shows the positions of the
lamps, gate, and leader after the
op-forming roller has been pressed
wn and released.
Bring the leader over the SNUBBER
ROLLER and under the two rollers on
the bottom of the master control cov­
er. Insert the end of the leader into
the slot in the core of the take-up reel.
Take up the slack between the lower
sprocket and the take-up reel. Move
the sound-input switch to FILM.
u
Threading for
Silent Pictures
Draw off about five feet of leader. In­
sert the leader between the upper
sprocket and clamp, engage the perfo­
rations with the sprocket teeth, and
close the clamp. (See Figure 5.)
Place the leader between the top
and bottom edge guides of the chan­
nel. Form the upper loop as shown
and close the gate by pressing on the
gate latch.
Form the lower loop as shown and
thread the leader between the lower
sprocket and clamp. Engage the per­
forations with the sprocket teeth and
close the clamp.
Turn the trial thread knob to en­
gage the pulldown claw in the leader
perforations.
Pass the leader over the snubber
roller and under the two rollers on the
bottom of the master-control cover.
Insert the end of the leader into the
slot in the core of the take-up reel.
Take up the slack between the lower
s !"Ocket and the take-up reel.
While the projector is running for­
ward, set the speed selector at SI­
LENT. Be sure to turn the motor off
momentarily after changing from
sound to silent speeds unless the shut­
ter has been locked in the 3-blade posi­
tion as shown in Figure 12. (See
KODAK SUPER-40 Shutter, page 12.)
Note: Project at SILENT speed; rewind at
SOUND speed.

Check Setup and Run the Show
Turn the trial thread knob clockwise
a few times to check the threading.
The pulldown claw must engage the
perforations and the sprockets must
feed the film.
The loops must be maintained in
their correct sizes. The leader should
be taut between the supply reel and
the upper sprocket.
Move the master control toward the
right to MOTOR and check to see that
the film is running through properly.
Move the master control lever to
PROJECT.
Focus the image on the screen.
Turn the FRAMING SCREW (Figure
5) to eliminate any blank strip on the
edge of the next picture that shows at
the top or bottom of the screen image.
Adjust the volume control to provide comfortable listening for the
dience. Focus the sound optics to
t the best quality of sound repro­
@
ction by moving the FIDELITY LEVER
and down.
Check to see that the film is being
taken up properly.
For sound projection only: Check
the lower loop. If necessary depress
and release the loop-forming roller.
This may be done with the projector
running, if desired.
To operate the projector in reverse,
move the master control to the left,
past OFF to MOTOR, and to PRO­
JECT if desired. When the projector
is running in reverse, the sound will
be reversed as well as the action. To
eliminate the disturbing sounds that
occur, temporarily turn the amplifier
off by depressing the amplifier power
button. Turn the amplifier back on
when returning to forward operation.
When the last frame of the picture
has passed through the projector
gate, move the master control lever
left to the MOTOR position. This will
move the lamp douser into position
and block off the distracting glare of
white light on the screen. Depress the
amplifier power button to turn off the
amplifier and eliminate the disturb­
ing sounds that sometimes occur when
the end of the film is going through
the sound system. When the end of
the film comes out of the projector,
move the master control to the OFF
position, change reels of film, and
thread the projector. If there are no
additional reels to be run, turn off the
lamp switch and rewind the finished
reel of film.

Rewinding
After the Show
To rewind the film, attach its end
directly to the supply reel as shown
(Figure 6) and give the reel a few
turns counterclockwise. Make sure
that the film is not twisted between
the reels.
Move the master control to the
right from the OFF position to
MOTOR. Lower the REWIND TAB to its
horizontal position (Figure 6 inset);
it will block the film channel.
Set the speed selector at SOUND;
Following the projection and rewind­
ing of all reels of film that are to be ·
shown:
Unplug the two power cords. Wind
the power supply unit cord around the
four feet of the unit and place the
projector power cord in the projector.
Remove the take-up belt from the
take-up pulley. Raise the take-up arm
slightly, push in the TAKE-UP ARM
RELEASE (Figure 7), and lower the
arm to its storage position. Swing the
supply arm backward and down as far
as it will go.
Lower the projector by turning the
elevation control counterclockwise.
Unplug the speaker cable and wind
it around its storage hooks.
Replace and fasten the projector
cover.
this is necessary for all rewinding.
Proper film tension will be automati­
cally maintained by the take-up pulley.
When the film has been completely
wound onto the supply reel, latch the
rewind tab in its vertical position,
move the master control to OFF, and
turn off the fan switch.

Kodak Super-40 Shutter
The KODAK PAGEANT Arc Projector is
equipped with the SUPER-40 Shutter
(Figure 10), which provides 40 per­
cent more screen illumination in the
2-blade position than it does in the
3-blade position.
Action of the SuPER-40 Shutter
At the 3-blade position (for silent
speed), there are a minimum of
forty-eight light interruptions per
second. This position is maintained
by spring tension. The tension coun­
teracts the centrifugal force exerted
by a weight that is linked to the two
movable blades.
When the speed selector is moved
to SOUND, the additional centrifugal
force that results from the faster
speed of the shutter overcomes the
spring tension. The movable blades
rotate on their axis and overlap in a
position opposite the fixed blade. Now
the shutter will operate in the 2-blade
position, giving the same light inter­
ruptions per second, but with 40 per­
cent more screen illumination.
Sound Speed-If the SUPER-40 Shutter
in the 2-blade position provides too
much illumination, it can be locked in
the 3-blade position. When the projec­
tor is operated at sound speed, the
shutter will automatically shift (if
not locked) from the 3-blade position
to e 2-blade position.
ilent Speed-The SUPER-40 Shutter
will remain in the 3-blade position if
the projector is started in silent
speed. If the projector is started in
sound speed and then shifted to silent
speed, the shutter cannot return to
the 3-blade position unless the motor
is stopped momentarily.
To Lock the SuPER-40 Shutter
in the 3-Blade Position:
Stop the projector; disconnect the
power cord; loosen the SCREW on the
LAMPHOUSE COVER (Figure 11); re­
move the cover. Turn the trial thread
knob until the SHUTTER LOCK (Figure
12) is visible. Hold the trial thread
knob to prevent rotation of the shut­
ter and, using a screwdriver or simi­
lar object, push the shutter lock down
as far as it will go. Replace the lamp­
house cover and tighten the screw. To
unlock the shutter, proceed as above,
except that the shutter lock must be
moved up as far as it will go.

Operating Tips
The perforations in the film should be toward you as film comes off
the bottom of the supply reel. If they are not, the film has not been
rewound or was twisted while being rewound.
If the gate is left open, the projected picture will be out of focus.
If the picture is unsteady, check the upper and lower loops; these
must be maintained. The lower loop should not touch the master con­
trol cover nor the loop-forming roller. The sprocket teeth must show
through the film perforations. Make sure that the gate and the
sprocket clamps are closed.
If loss of loop occurs: sound film-quickly press down the loop­
forming roller as far as it will go while the projector is running and
then release the roller; silent film-stop the motor immediately and
re-form the loops.
If the projector is stopped during the projecting of a reel of so nd
film, turn the trial thread knob several revolutions clockwise to � take
.
up any slack between the lower sprocket and the sound drum.
If there is no sound, check to make sure that:
FIGURE 12
SHUTIER

Sound track is overriding edge of sound drum properly.
Film is between the flanges of sound drum pressure roller.
Exciter lamp is not burned out and is seated on all three studs.
Sound input switch is at FILM.
If the sound quality is not up to par, check to make sure:
Speed selector is at proper position.
Lower loop is of the proper size.
Film is snug around sound drum and drum is clean.
Volume is not too high.
Tone balance is correctly adjusted.
Fidelity lever is adjusted for correct sound optics focus.
Film sound track is of good quality.
Sound optics unit has been properly seated after cleaning.
Sound is synchronized with the picture. If it is not, the cause may be
an improperly formed lower loop. To re-form the loop, press down
the loop-forming roller while the projector is running.

Seating
Arrangements
Matte or Lenticular Screen
The white area shows the best view­
ing area for matte and lenticular
screens.
The seats nearest the screen
should not be closer than twice the
width of the picture (2W) ; the rear
seats should not be farther than six
times the width of the picture (6W).
Screen and Lens Combinations
Proper selection of screen and lens
for your particular setup is impor­
tant. The screen image should be of
adequate size for satisfactory view­
ing. With the wide variety of lenses
available for your PAGEANT Arc
Projector, you can tailor your screen
size to meet this requirement.
The chart shows the relationship
between projection distances and
screen sizes for each of the available
lenses. It is best to use a lens that
provides a screen image of a width
that is not less than one-sixth of the
distance from the screen to the back
row of seats. If the image is smaller
than this, the viewers in the back
rows will not be able to see the fine
detail in the pictures.
Shown in the table are the maxi­
mum image widths for adequate il­
lumination on matte screens and on
lenticular or beaded screens with
the General Electric Marc-300 / 16A
lamp or equivalent. These maximum
widths are for good projection con­
ditions in a darkened room; they will
have to be somewhat less if there is
much stray light in the room.

Replacing Projection Lamp
and Cleaning Lens
WARNING: High-wattage projection lamps
get very hot in use. Be sure to allow ample
time for cooling before you handle them.
Cooling can be accelerated by turning off
the lamp switch and leaving the fan switch
on after you have moved the master con­
trol lever to OFF. When the bulb has
cooled sufficiently, turn off the fan switch
and disconnect the power cord before re­
moving the lamphouse cover.
Loosen the lamphouse cover screw
(Figure 11), and lift off the cover.
Remove the LAMP PLUG (Figure 13)
by pulling it straight out. Rotate the
lamp PIVOTING CLIP (Figure 14) clock­
wise to release the upper lip of the
lamp reflector, grasp the white ceram­
ic insulator, and lift the LAMP up and
away from the lamp mount.
To insert the new lamp, reverse the
procedure given above, being careful
to fit the lower lip of the lamp reflec­
tor inside the two lamp RETAINING
CLIPS for proper positioning of the
lamp.
Cleaning
Film Gate
Caution: Use extreme care when handling
the new lamp. Neither the quartz arc tube
nor the interior reflector coating should
be touched. Fingerprints or other deposits
can cause shortened life, premature reduc­
tion in light output, or uneven illumination.
The lamp mount controls the posi­
tioning of the lamp and is adjusted at
the factory for maximum evenness of
illumination. Readjustment should
not be necessary. However, if adjust­
ment appears to be needed, loosen the
two ADJUSTMENT SCREWS and reposi­
tion the mount.
Cleaning the Projection Lens: The pro­
jection lens should be cleaned with
care. Remove the lens by drawing it
out of the lens holder. With a soft,
lintless cloth or KODAK Lens Cleaning
Paper, carefully· wipe the front and
rear lens surfaces. Do not use a wet
cloth; if moisture is required, breathe
on the lens or use a drop of KODAK
Lens Cleaner.
WARNING: The use of treated papers or
cloths can harm the
LUMENIZED
surface.
The film GATE (Figure 15) should be
cleaned at frequent intervals. Because
of the rapid stop-and-go motion of the
film, particles of the emulsion lubri­
cant are eventually rubbed off the
edges of the film and lodged on the
gate; this can damage film.
Use care in removing or replacing
the gate; force is not necessary.
To avoid the possibility of scratch­
ing the gate, the pulldown claw should
be retracted before the gate is re­
moved. Retract the claw by turning
the trial thread knob until the white
line is toward you. Remove the projec­
tion lens.
Open the gate and insert a clean
CARD or piece of paper to protect the
polished surfaces of the gate; then
withdraw the gate.
Use a soft, damp, lintless cloth to
clean the gate. If necessary, wrap the
cloth around a toothpick or match
stick to clean the film track.
To c l e a n t h e a p e r t u r e, r e a c h
through the projection-lens holder
with a small, soft brush, or a damp­
ened pipe cleaner and clean off the
edges of the aperture.
Before replacing the gate, make
sure the pulldown claw is retracted.
Then guide the upper notched part of
the gate so that it bears against the
under part of the top hinge-retaining
SPRING. Push in on the gate tab to en­
gage the top and bottom hinges.

control COVER SCREWS (Figure 16)
and the spacer. Move the master con­
trol all the way to the left. Swing the
master control cover outward for ac­
cess to the sound optics and exciter
lamp. Move the SOUND OPTICS toward
the front of the projector with your
forefinger as shown in Figure 17 and
with a soft brush, dust the top and
bottom sound optics lenses. The SOUND
PICK-UP is just above the upper lens
and directly behind the sound drum.
The lower surface of this pick-up
should be kept clean by using a soft
brush. Be sure the optics unit is prop­
erly seated. Replace the master con­
trol cover.
The sound drum, sprocket-clamp roll­
ers, and other rollers that come in
contact with the film should be wiped
occasionally with a soft, lintless cloth
to keep them clean. Dirt particles on
the inner edge of the sound drum will
interrupt the light beam and cause
blips and hum. To check for this con­
dition, remove the film and run the
projector in reverse with the ampli­
fier turned on.

Replacing Belts
Rewind Belt-Disconnect the two ends
of the worn belt, connect one of these
ends to an end of the new belt and pull
the new belt through. If the old belt
is not in position, feed the new belt
into the opening in front of the sup­
ply reel arm. Guide the belt between
the flanges of the pulley until the end
protrudes from the opening in the top
of the housing. If the end of the belt
hits the housing, use a bent paper clip
to guide it. The belt should go
through the BELT GUARD (Figure 18).
Take-Up Belt-Remove the two upper
sprocket-plate retaining SCREWS and
the SPACER that is located behind the
retaining screw nearest the front of
the projector. Lift off the upper
sprocket and plate assembly. Remove
the old belt. Hold the new belt as
shown in Figure 19, and push the
looped end of the belt into the opening
in the mechanism. Make sure that the
STUD is inside the loop. Continue to
push the belt downward until the
looped end is in the GROOVE next to the
sprocket drive gear. The belt should
be flat in the groove. With the belt in
this position, replace the upper
sprocket and plate assembly, pressing
it downward to engage the gears.
Then replace the retaining screws and
the spacer.
Drive Belts-These belts seldom need
replacing. If replacement becomes
necessary, the new belts should be in­
stalled by your serviceman.

SCREW
The EXCITER LAMP (Figure 20) in
this projector operates at less than its
rated voltage. It should, therefore,
have extremely long life and should
seldom need to be replaced.
If the lamp must be replaced, dis­
connect the power cord from the wall
outlet and swing the master control
cover outward as described on page
17. Push the exciter lamp RELEASE
LEVER down as far as it will go. Turn
the lamp counterclockwise and re­
move it.
Place the new lamp in the socket
and turn it until the large ends of the
key slots in the lamp base fit over the
three locating studs. The lamp will fit
only one way. Turn the lamp clock­
wise as far as it will go. To lock the
lamp in position, raise the exciter
lamp release lever. Wipe the glass of
the lamp with a clean soft cloth to
remove any fingerprints or smudges.
Replace the master control cover.
