Super-common problem, and fairly easy to fix with a little shrink tubing (that
you can get at Lowe's or Home Depot). Dave Tetzlaff showed me the way. I've
repaired probably a dozen cameras using his method. Here are step-by-step

I'm having issues with the focusing knob on my16mm Eiki projector. The lens

I took out the lens and noticed that there is a thick dark red grease on the
threading of the lens itself, and also buildup in the threading connected to
the focusing knob. I don't know much about this....should I clean this buildup
or do I need more grease? Could this be reason why the lens won't move?
The screw holding the lens in place seems a bit stripped and needs to be
tightened. Could this also be the issue?
Is there anything else I need to consider?
