We recommend the use of slide mounts that are available in a comprehensive range of types and sizes. NOTE: Bent cardboard-mounted slides, metal mounts or all-glass mounted slides with sharp edges or corners should not be used because they are liable to cause problems. Identical slide mounts ensure optimum registration of images during the dissolve. Preparing for projection CAUTION: Use only high-quality magazines made of an opaque material to avoid projector malfunctions! 20 The Rollei CM-55/50 magazines are a perfect match for the Twin projectors.. These 50-slide magazines are easily hooked up before or during projection, which permits continuous projection of several magazines without any interruption. To aid in this, magazine extension tracks are available as optional accessories, which are simply hooked into the projector. Rollei CM-55/50 magazines can also be used with most other commercially available projectors. O P E R AT I O N Loading slides » Position the magazine with its numbers on the right and insert slides upside down, emulsion facing the screen, in the desired order, starting with slot No. 1. LKM magazines LKM magazines may be used for all slide mounts up to 2 mm thick. To avoid problems, we recommend the use of slides between 1.5 and 2 mm thick with LKM magazines. Mounts of less than 1.5 mm thickness should be used only with standard magazines. Be sure to use only identical slide mounts for optimum registration of images. Magazines for 60 or 80 slides are commercially available (not from Rollei). CS magazines CS magazines take specially designed CS mounts. These have shaped edges that engage guides in the slide slots. Other types of mount cannot be used. CS magazines are commercially available in sizes for 40 or 100 slides (not from Rollei). Fitting the lenses Preparing for projection Screw the two lenses into their mounts, taking care not to leave any fingerprints on their glass surfaces. 21 OPERATION Inserting the magazine » 3 2 When using a standard magazine, always turn the feed heel 2 to its horizontal position for cardboard-mounted slides or thin plastic mounts. » To do this press »stop/go« button 16 after switching on the projector. » Next, press green forward button 19. Slide changer 3 moves out. » Press down knurled screw of slide changer, turn it through 90°, and let go. » Press green forward button 19; the slide changer returns to its original position. When using LKM or CS magazines » Turn the horizontal feed heel to its vertical position. » Insert the loaded magazine from behind in the track, its numbers facing outwards (CS magazines: numbers facing inwards) as far as it will go. » Preparing for projection Press green forward button 19; the slide changer 3 loads the first and second slides into the projector. The lamp comes on automatically, and projection begins. 22 90° 16 19 O P E R AT I O N Selecting a specific slide 15 16 If projection is to begin with a specific slide other than No. 1, the magazine may be advanced to the desired position. » To do this, keep front »focus« button 15 depressed until the corresponding magazine slot is in the desired position. 19 41 40 1 » Release the button and press it again to start normal incremental advance. » If you have gone past the slide you want, run the magazine back in the same way, pressing the rear »focus« button 15. This special function only works after insertion of the magazine, before the first slide-change command is given by pressing button 19 or by a sync pulse. Direct access to a specific slide slot » Input slide number on numerical keyboard 40. The corresponding number is displayed in 41. » Trigger feed command pressing button 19. The projector will start showing the slide selected. By entering slide (slot) numbers during projection via the numerical keyboard, slides can easily be projected in any desired order. When the next feed command is given, the slide in position will be changed for the selected one and dissolved onto the latter. Preparing for projection 3 23 OPERATION Setting up the projector and screen » Set up the projector properly: its front parallel to the screen, the lenses centered on the screen, with adequate space for cables and magazine travel. A stable horizontal position is very important. We recommend the use of a projector table. Do not obstruct the ventilation slits! Aligning the image » Line up the projected image with the center of the screen. Turn the projector feet to adjust the height and horizontal position of the image. » To eliminate lateral misalignment, shift projector and screen in relation to each other. » Correct major differences in level between projector and screen exclusively by raising the projector or its table to avoid keystone distortion of the image. Preparing for projection CAUTION: Do not tilt the projector excessively, e.g. by raising its front edge beyond the adjustment range of its feet. 24 O P E R AT I O N Focusing » Focus slide 1 by turning the correspon- ding lens 8. 38 » Then press the green button 19 and focus the second slide by turning the other lens. 8 This basic manual focusing is required only once at the beginning of the show. Thereafter, the autofocus system will take over and automatically focus the two lenses. Manual refocusing is necessary after changing the lenses, varying the projection distance or changing the focal-length setting of zoom lenses. Slides in glassless mounts may pop when exposed to the heat of the light beam. In this case also, the AF system automatically refocuses the image. The two »focus« buttons used for manual operation remain active even with the AF system in operation. In other words, pressing one of these buttons will override autofocusing. Blinking of the LED next to button 38 indicates that the image on the screen is being projected without AF. AF will be reactivated either by depression of button 38 or by the next slide-change command. The LED will then go out. » If you wish to project entirely without AF, press »autofocus off« button 38. Its LED lights. Preparing for projection 19 25 OPERATION Adjusting image registration » » Press green forward button 19. Watch the dissolve and check whether the two images register perfectly. » It is advisable to make this adjustment during a slow dissolve or after freezing the dissolve with the »stop/go« button 16. For this adjustment, the slide mounts should preferably be of identical type. » Turn dial 31 for lateral adjustment. Keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m. Preparing for projection Vertical registration has been set at the factory. However, should a vertical misalignment be found in spite of the use of identical mounts, use a screwdriver and turn setscrew 32 to eliminate it. 26 32 31 O P E R AT I O N 10 43 17 Remote control » Leave the IR control 11 in its tray on the projector if you wish to control the show directly from the projector. » For remote-control operation, remove the handset from its tray and open its cover. » Press the connector 43 onto the terminals of a 9V battery, insert the latter and close the cover. » When using the remote control, make sure to point its transmitter diodes 17 in the direction of the projector sensor. A minimum distance of 1 m is required between transmitter and sensor. » After the show replace the remote control, pushing it back into its tray 10. CAUTION: To avoid malfunctions, the IR sensor 5 must not be exposed to bright light, such as from a lamp or direct daylight. NOTE: Before connecting a cable remote control to terminal 26, remove the IR remote control from its tray. Preparing for projection 11 27 OPERATION Setting dissolve duration The default dissolve time of the projector is 16 14 two seconds. This setting is activated when the projector is switched on. » To change the dissolve time, press one of the three buttons 14 marked »dissolve«. Available settings are 0.1, 3 and 6 seconds. The dissolve time entered is displayed on 41. (For assigning different dissolve times to the buttons, –> page 52, item 2.2.1.) » The »stop/go« button 16 may also be used to freeze a dissolve 20 19 » and to resume dissolve by pressing it again. The default time can then no longer be activated. Forward slide change: For each forward slide change briefly press green button 19 once. » Reverse slide change: For each reverse slide change, e.g. for repeating a slide already shown, briefly press red button 20 once. Projection » 28 NOTE: Single slides can only be projected with a magazine inserted, since the latter also has a control function. If you re-sort or temporarily remove slides from the magazine during a show, be sure to keep the two empty slots free – this is where the projector must return the slides actually being projected! O P E R AT I O N Laser pointer » Press button 50 on the side of the remo- te control to switch on the laser pointer built into the handset. The pointer is supplied with power by the 9V battery in the handset. 51 NOTE: Laser power corresponds to Class II. The figure 51 points to the exit window of the laser. Projection 50 CAUTION: Note that laser beams can harm your eyesight! Therefore: – Never look into the light-exit opening at the front of the remote set when the pointer is on. – Never direct the pointer at the eyes of another person. – Always keep the laser pointer out of reach of children. 29 OPERATION Timer-controlled slide changing » Activate the automatic screen time by briefly pressing the »timer« button 13. » Start the cycle by pressing the green forward button 19. To vary the screen time, proceed as follows: Screen time after depression of button 13 is 8 s. » Depression of the »+« button changes the setting to 12 s. Depression of the »-« button sets an interval of 4 s (MSC 535 P 5 s). Simultaneous depression of the »+/-« buttons resets the timer to 8 s. » To switch off the timer, press »timer« button 13. If the screen time is set with the buttons 37, the red timer LED will at first blink red and then light steady when the projector is started with the green forward button 19. The screen time entered and the number of the projected slide are displayed on 41. » Timer intervals can easily be cut short by pressing the forward button 19 and will then resume normally. Projection » 30 Depression of the red reverse button 20 clears the timer and loads the previous slide back into the projector. To go back to automatic timing after such a reverse slide change, reset the timer. 37 13 O P E R AT I O N Selecting the memo function 21 19 With the »memo« button 21, up to 16 slides in a magazine can be electronically flagged for repetition after the run. » To do this, briefly press the »memo« button 21 each time a slide to be repeated appears on the screen. Once the magazine has completed its run, the projector will automatically show the first slide so selected. » To recall each of the remaining flagged slides, press the green button 19. During projection of the flagged slides, the LED display 34 will show »test«, reflecting operation of the working memory. NOTE: Automatically recalling the slides under timer control is not possible. Projection 34 31 OPERATION Displays and warnings » 18 LED 18 on the remote control lights up for each input command. » The »timer« LED 37 signals the status of automatic timer-controlled slide changing: LED blinking = Screen time set or timer cycle or dissolve interrupted.

Insert new magazine. » Continue show pressing green forward button 19. Changing a magazine before the end of its run: » Press »end« button 12. The projector completes the last command, and the slide changer returns the slides in the projector to their magazine slots. The magazine automatically returns to starting position and may be removed. All commands are cleared. CAUTION: When using different types of magazine (standard, LKM, CS), make sure that the feed heel is in the correct position! (–> page 18) Only insert or remove the magazine when the projector is switched on! Projection 12 33 OPERATION Using Rollei CM-55/50 magazines To ensure smooth attachment and removal of Rollei CM 55/50 magazines during projection, observe the following: » Push the first magazine forward as far as it will go and start magazine advance. Attach the second magazine not later than during projection of slide 45 of the first magazine. The first magazine may be detached after slide No. 6 of the second magazine, but not later than slide No. 12. » To do this, slightly raise the magazine and lift it out. If a track extension is used, the first magazine may be detached later. » To attach a track extension, engage its studs into the corresponding holes 9 of the magazine track where they are engaged by the force of springs. Projection CAUTION: Even with the track extensions in place, never have more than two magazines on the track at any time. Rollei CM-55/50 magazines can also be used on their own as standard magazines on any projector designed to take this type of magazine. 34 9 35 PROGRAMMING 1.1 Logging a manually controlled slide show Unnoticed by the user, the projector will automatically log the slide data in its working memory during a normal slide show. These include: Slide number as well as dissolve and screen time, which are logged under a common program number. If a dissolve time is changed by pressing one of the three dissolve buttons 14, this will be logged during the following dissolve. The timer interval recorded is always equivalent to the screen time of a slide between the end of its fade-in and the beginning of its fade-out. » In the timer mode, the show can be stopped and continued by pressing the »stop/ go« button 16. The resultant extended screen time will be recorded. » Dissolves also can be stopped with the aid of the »stop/go« button. However, this will not be logged. Basics NOTE: Logged data will be lost if the projector is switched off. 36 PROGRAMMING A manually controlled slide show can immediately be repeated automatically for testing purposes. » To do this, switch on the »test« mode by pressing the »mode« button 35 after the end of the show. » Playback can be started immediately by pressing the green forward button 19. » Use the »stop/go« button 16 to stop and restart a dissolve or the timer. » The show can be terminated at any time by pressing the »end« button 12. The »memo« button 21 can be activated as in the manual mode. Making corrections during a test run It is often necessary to change the dissolve or screen time of a slide. » To do this, press the »stop/go« button 16 during the test run while the corresponding slide is being shown. » If the timer-correction button 37 or one of the three dissolve buttons 14 is then pressed, this will change the previously recorded screen time of the slide being shown or the dissolve duration from this to the next slide. » If, however, the dissolve time being watched is to be corrected, first press the red reverse button before making the correction. Additional reverse commands are, however, impossible during test runs. » To resume the show, press the green forward button 19 or the »stop/go« button 16. Basics 1.2 Running a test 37 PROGRAMMING 1.3 Chip modules A slide show logged in the program storage of the projector can be permanently saved in an interchangeable chip module 44. The slot for this module is located underneath the control panel. Modules are available with a capacity of approx. 120 slides (module 100) or approx. 400 slides (module 300). The capacity may vary depending on the slide information involved. All modules can be read and overwritten as often as desired. In each case the entire contents of the module is loaded into the projector‘s program storage or the latter‘s content into the type 100 or 300 module (insofar as this is possible). Basics NOTE: Standard equipment of the projector is a type 100 module. 38 44 28 PROGRAMMING 1.3.1 Saving in the chip module When saving a show in the module, the data logged in the working memory of the projector are transferred to the module. » To do this, press the »mode« button 35 to set the »record« mode. The LED of the »module« button 36 will blink. » 1.3.2 Playing back a show saved in the module To play back a show saved in a module it is necessary to transfer its data into the working memory of the projector. » To do this, set the »auto« mode by pressing the »mode« button 35. The LED of the »module« button 36 starts blinking. After pressing the »module« button 36, the word »record« will also blink, signaling that any further depression of the »module« button will completely erase the information stored in the module. » » » The logged data are transferred to the module after the second depression of the »module« button. During this process, the LED of the »module« button 36 is lit. It will go out as soon as the recording is complete, and the projector will automatically switch to the »test« mode. The data of the show remain logged in the working memory. If there is no module in the slot, the LED will keep blinking. After depression of the »module« button 36, a copy of the data in the module will be transferred from the latter to the working memory. The show can be started immediately by pressing the green forward button 19. » Using the »stop/go« button 16, dissolves or the timer can be stopped and restarted. » The »memo« button 21 can be activated as in the manual mode. » The show can be terminated at any time by pressing the »end« button 12. The »module« LED will also blink if the capacity of the module is insufficient. However, the show has been saved as far as possible. » In this case, quit the »record« mode by pressing the »mode« button 35. Basics NOTE: Do not switch off the projector during saving! 39 PROGRAMMING 1.3.3 Miscellaneous The »test« and »auto« modes are similar. Basics The only difference is that corrections can be made in the »test« mode and that module data can be loaded down from the module in the »auto« mode. 40 PROGRAMMING 1.4 Direct access to specific slides in the »auto« and »test« modes As in the »manual« mode, direct access to all slides in the working memory is also possible in the »test« and »auto« modes. The run can be started in three different ways: » » 1. By pressing the green forward button. 2.

PROGRAMMING 2.1.9 Description of special functions The term “special function” covers all functions other than standard dissolve of one slide onto another. It always refers to the slide under which the function is entered. There are special light functions and special mechanical functions. Mechanical functions 0 Normal slide change 1 Autoreverse 2 Slave pulse at beginning of a dissolve 4 Slave pulse roughly in the middle of a dissolve Function 1 can be combined with functions 2 or 4 by entering the the corresponding sum. Light functions *0 Normal dissolve *1 Fade-in/sandwich *2 Freeze *3 Blinking *4 Flashing 5 Toggling *6 Fade-out of previous program step/fade-in of slide of current program step *7 Fade-out of slide of previous program step / pause / continue with slide of current program step by pressing forward button. Number / Duration — 1 sec ...9s 1 sec ...9s 1x ...9x 1x ...9x 1x ...9x * Only light functions 0, 6 and 7 can be combined with the mechanical functions. Advanced programming techniques Special functions 47 PROGRAMMING 126.96.36.199 Special light functions Fade-in/sandwich Flashing In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with the „fade-in“ special function entered in its program line will be faded into the slide already being projected in the other projector channel with full brightness. The screen time of the fade-in slide can be selected between 1 and 9 s. The fade-in and fade-out times will depend on the dissolve time entered for that slide. The timer interval programmed for the slide gives the screen time of the slide in the other channel after the end of the fade-in function. –> Blinking – reduced duration. Advanced programming techniques Freeze In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with the „freeze“ function entered in its program line will be stopped in mid-dissolve. The freeze time can be chosen between 1 and 9 seconds. 48 Blinking In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with the „blinking“ function entered in its program line will be faded in blinking into the slide being projected in the other projector channel with full brightness. The number of blinking cycles may be chosen between 1 and 9. The duration of fade-in/fade-out depends on the dissolve time entered for the fade-in slide, but should be kept brief in order to preserve the impression of blinking. The timer interval selected gives the screen time of the slide in the other channel after the end of the blinking function. Toggling In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with the „toggling“ function entered in its program line will be projected alternately with the slide already on the screen. The number of toggling cycles can be varied from 1 to 9. The toggling characteristics can be varied with the aid of the dissolve time entered. The timer interval selected gives the screen time of the slide in the other channel after the end of the toggling function. The toggling cycle always ends with the slide in the other channel. Fade-in/fade-out In this function, the previous slide will first fade out completely before fading in again. This is useful if two slides should not be dissolved, for instance when changing from horizontal to vertical format. Fade-out – pause – fade-in This function may be selected if the show is to be interrupted. The previous slide is faded out. The next slide is faded in and the show resumes only after renewed depression of the green forward button. PROGRAMMING 188.8.131.52 Special mechanical functions Autoreverse NOTE: To avoid malfunctions, make sure that In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with the „Autoreverse“ function entered in its program line will automatically be followed by the first slide of the show. The transition will be seamless, in other words, there will be no blackout. the slave projector has completed its dissolve or special function before a slave command is given. Advanced programming techniques Master-slave operation In the »test« and »auto« modes, a slide with one of the two „master-slave“ functions entered in its program line will cause a control pulse to be applied to the PC terminal. With a Rollei adapter cable connected to the remote-control terminal (RC terminal) of another MSC 325 P, MSC 535 P, MSC 300 MSC 300 P, MSC 320 S or MSC 330 P, this may be used to trigger a forward pulse in a slave. The pulse may be applied either at the beginning or in the middle of a dissolve. If the slave also is a type MSC 325 P, MSC 535 P, MSC 330 P or MSC 300 P projector, this may execute special functions and can in turn be used as a master driving an additional slave. Depending on its operating mode, the latter will use the dissolve times and, possibly, special functions either according to the dissolve time set on its keyboard (manual mode) or the data in its working memory (test or auto mode). A certain triggering delay is, however, unavoidable in a ladder network. 184.108.40.206 Entering special functions See page 43, top. 49 PROGRAMMING Sample program Program-No.Slide-No. Dissolve Timer Special function Comments 1 5 5.0 09 000 000 need not be entered if »enter« is pressed. 2 6 2.5 06 000 3 7 0.5 10* 043 4 9 3.0 08 000 5 3 1.5 16** 018 Fade slide 3 into slide 9 for 1.5 s.

The following equipment is recommended for sound recording: --> GEBUHR DIA-AV Recorder --> KINDERMANN AV Stereo Radio Recorder. These are stereo recorders with a freehead track and integral sync-pulse generator for projector control. The Rollei Adapter Cable 83 881 is needed for connecting the recorder to the projector. The cable is connected to terminal 26 of the projector. It is 1.5 m long. Other suitable equipment is made by Fostex, Tascam and Yamaha. These units use an external sync-pulse generator, such as the Rollei RCP Slide Synchronizer 62 656. Be sure to follow the instructions supplied with these units. NOTE: Since the feed pulses are generated by the sync-pulse generator or AV recorder, timer intervals have to be deleted from programmed shows! » Projector To do this, press the »timer« button in the »record« mode. It is advisable to delete the timer intervals before saving the show in the chip module. 59 HELPFUL HINTS ON SLIDE PROJE C T I O N Standby/Pause The screen At the start of a show, the first two slides is a decisive factor in determining the quality have to be moved into the projector from the magazine before the first fade-in. The corresponding delay can be avoided only if the slides are moved into position beforehand. of your projected images. A tensioning device taking creases out of the screen is very desirable. Larger screens mean greater impact. » » The larger the screen, the more impressive the projected image. To do this, press »stop/go« button 16, followed by green forward button 19. The first two slides are loaded into the projector. Fade-in will follow only when the green forward button is pressed the next time. The »timer« LED will blink during waiting. The forward commands may also be given by the sync-pulse generator or the computer. Standby operation is also possible if a discrete slide in the magazine is to be accessed directly via the keyboard. » Set the screen up vertically (and parallel to the front of the projector). The center of the screen should be at the same height as the projection lenses and about 25 cm above the audience‘s eye level. In very large rooms alignment is easier if you tilt the top of the screen about 5 - 10° towards the projector. » » In small rooms it may be helpful to set up the projector in an adjacent room and project through an open door. » To resume the show, press the forward button. Hints Select a large-enough screen - about 1.5 m y 1.5 m for home projection. Screens of 1.8 m x 1.8 m to 3 m x 3 m are suitable for large to very large rooms. During projection in the manual mode (timer disabled), the slide show may be interrupted. To do this, press the »stop/go« button, followed by the green forward button. The current slide fades out, and the pause light comes on. 60 » NOTE: The table on pages 68/69 gives screen sizes and projection distances for different lenses. HELPFUL HINTS ON S L I D E P R O J E C T I O N » » Unscrew the lenses by turning them counterclockwise. Clean the glass surfaces of two lenses of matching focal length and screw them into the projector. Repeat basic manual focusing. » Zoom lenses with focal lengths between 70 and 120 mm are useful for projection in rooms of different size and make it easier to match the slide size with the screen size. Rollei AV-Apogon and Schneider-Kreuznach AV-Xenotar lenses meet the most stringent demands for edge sharpness, uniform illumination and color balance. They are renowned as high-performance slide-projection lenses bringing to the screen the outstanding image quality of modern camera lenses. Sophisticated slide shows » » Select slides very critically, eliminating repetitions and poor quality. Avoid frequent changes between daylight and flash shots as well as random series of personal souvenir pictures. Assemble powerful series of uniform predominant color, candid shots, etc. Focus and adjust images before beginning the show. Always keep a spare lamp ready. Keep the number of slides to a tolerable level. Allow for pauses in the show to keep up the interest of viewers. Terminate your show with a particularly evocative slide. Use subdued room lighting before the show and for a while after it. Matching background music improves any slide show. For today‘s audience, accustomed to TV, it is almost essential, particularly if there is no commentary. » » » » » » » » Hints Changing lenses 61 PRACTICAL TIPS Stereoscopic projection » Precisely mounted slides are a prerequisi- te for troublefree stereoscopic projection. • Be sure to use a metal-coated screen that will not affect polarization. Align the projector so that its axis is perpendicular to the screen to avoid light falloff. Insert the original Rollei polarizing-filter set (Cat. No. 38 130) behind the projection lenses. No adjustment is required. Other polarizing filters should be adjusted to suit the spectacles used. Suitable slip-on polarizing filters of 54 mm diameter - for example from Heliopan - for 60 mm f/2.8, 90 mm f/2.4, 90 mm CF f/2.4 or 150 mm f/2.8 are available from photo dealers. Literature about stereoscopic photography and projection is likewise available from the photo trade. » » Hints In the case of misalignment, for instance due to differences in slide mounts, lateral or vertical adjustment is possible with the overlap dial 31 and setscrew 32. 62 32 31 MALFUNCTIONS In case of malfunction 15 In the case of a malfunction, the projector automatically switches off the lamps, and the pause light 42 blinks. Do not switch off the projector! 3 » Press »end« button. The projector will try to correct the problem on its own and will eject the magazine. Slides still in the projector will be returned to the magazine. Steady lighting of the pause light indicates that the malfunction has been corrected. The projector is ready to resume operation. » » » Switch projector off. Pull power plug! Remove cover. If the slide changer 3 is jammed in the magazine or in the slide stage: » Pull out or push back the changer in whichever direction it can move, returning the slide either to the magazine or the slide stage. If the slide changer 3 or a jammed slide does not obstruct the magazine: » Remove magazine from track by pushing back the emergency lever 29. When the projector is switched on again after a malfunction, the magazine is automatically returned to starting position, and slides are ejected.

Pull the power plug! Remove the cover. After all maintenance work » » Replace and secure cover. Only then (!) reconnect the projector to the power supply! Check all functions. Hints » 65 CARE AND MAINTENANCE Magazine track » Regularly remove dust and other foreign particles with a soft brush, paying special attention to the optical magazine-scanning aperture (see illustration). Optical system » » Hints Use a long, soft camel-hair brush to dust all glass surfaces in the two slide stages. Remove the lenses and clean their exposed glass surfaces with lens-cleaning tissue. This cleaning is required only now and then because with the projector running the cooling air carries away most of the dust. What is much more important is to keep your slides clean and free from dust! 66 CARE A N D M A I N T E N A N C E 47 48 Changing fuses The illustrations show the location of the three fuses. » Pull the defective fuse MSC 325 P 46 (T 2 A/250V) or 47, 48 (T 8 A/250V) out of its holder and replace. Pull the defective fuse MSC 535 P 46 (T 2 A/250V) or 53, 54 (T 10 A/250V) out of its holder and replace. » CAUTION: Should the new fuse blow right away, do not try any DIY repair (which would invalidate the Rollei warranty), but have the projector repaired by Rollei Service. NOTE: Spare fuses are available from photo or electronics dealers. Rollei Service has experts to service your Rollei projector and advise you on all aspects of photography and projection with Rollei equipment.
