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 

Good luck!

Hello Group!

I'm having issues with the focusing knob on my16mm Eiki projector. The lens 
won't move forward or backwards to focus when I turn the knob; I have to 
manually move the lens to focus...

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?
