I have a Potts A2 Platter that suddenly decided to take the film up loosely. By loosely, I mean a 7 reel film is filling the entire 52 Inch platter. It was fine up until our 3rd show on Sunday and now it is doing it every show. I am currently running a different film on that platter that seems to be running correctly. Any ideas on what to look for to fix this problem?

This question would be better for the film-tech.com forums. You get much more and quicker answers.

I've had this problem before. It would happen to us only on certain prints, so we figured it wasn't the motors. Eventually we deduced that it was due to excess splices on the film--films that came in from other theaters that had been damaged and spliced in a million places. If I recall correctly, you won't find that answer on film-tech. They'll have you adjusting your variac.
