Elmo Gs 1200 for sale on eBay

Change country:

Well, what can I say... is this one of the most wanted projectors on earth? I think so! And rightly so. This is a BEAST of a projector. I never had one, though I had other Elmos. I also had a heavy-duty Fumeo 9119 once. Sold it and regret it to this day... Anyway, back to the Elmo!



You can find lots of informative videos on repairs, bulbs and technical stuff on YouTube about this film projector: Elmo GS-1200 videos.

1) I don't think so, you have to search for yourself in India or buy one on eBay. 2) No, this projector is not made anymore for over 30 years. 3) To my knowledge there are no projectors for super 16 mm, only 'regular' 16mm.

Does anyone know why my GS1200 crackles like hell when I pose it up and how to cure it. I can get it to stop if I wiggle the mains plug it stops only to return a minute later. Thanks

You mean the speaker crackles? Probably a wire problem between amplifier and speaker.

Could be some dust in the volume knob. If you turn the knob to left and right a couple of times, does the crackling change? You could try canned air to clean around the knob and wires, inside and outside.

Clive, I found this forum where someone had the same problem. Whatever you do, don't send it to projector heaven yet, these are wonderful projectors :-) Elmo GS 1200 crackling.

Hi John, Thanks for your help. I did try the idea of switching the record button on and off quite a few times, but it didn’t seem to work. I did however wiggle the mains plug in the back of the projector and it stopped crackling only to start a few minutes later. So I wiggled the mains plug again and it stopped. I have run 3 cartoons and the crackle hasn’t returned. So who knows, but for the time being it has won a reprise. Many thanks, Clive

Ah, well in that case it might be a very good idea to check the wires of the mains plug for some dust or bad wiring to avoid damage and dangerous situations. Glad that you figured out what is was and that you ran some movies without any crackling, Clive!
