I picked up a Kodak M80 at a garage sale, I tried to place

Customer Question

Hi, I picked up a Kodak M80 at a garage sale, I tried to place the film under the roller, it indicates that the roller should lock in the down position-it doesn't. Is it worth repairing?

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.An M80 projector is quite a classic (or 'old') device. As such, you probably won't be able to get it repaired in a shop, period.Unless you find (or I can point out) a shop that does indeed specialize in repair to such classic devices.Whether it is 'worth repairing', is a subjective question that can only be answered yourself. Do you value it greatly? what price would you be willing to pay for it to work properly?If you mean, is it less expensive to repair, than to replace, then I would say probably, no, it will be about as expensive to repair as to replace.Unless you found another one with working parts to get from it, available inexpensively, to put working parts into it, yourself. M80 Kodak projectors are sold used here and there, and could be found inexpensively for sale on craigslist.com, perhaps, or given away through freecycle.net.I have Opted Out in case another Expert has a different opinion to offer. If you want further assistance, about any detail, just Reply to this; I'll still be able to respond. PS: charges to your credit card, or billing, payments, and subscription terms, are not within my power as a JustAnswer.com Expert. I have to refer all such inquiries to Customer Support at JustAnswer.com, through:http://ww2.justanswer.com/contact-usI am sure they will address your concerns with reasonable promptness.
