When I first got my Horizon 202 I kept breaking
film when I advanced the film. Definitely a small quality problem
that is remedied with some attention to detail.
The rewind knob sits down way too far and fouls
against the Speed Range Selector when you advance the film as indicated by Blue Arrow.
Undo this screw.
Don't loose this little washer under the rewind
I found a phenolic paper washer in my junk
parts bin that is .40mm (.016") thick that seems to be right
for the job. The sides were trimmed away to form the shape as shown.
Insert the washer just so.
Replace the rewind knob and tighten. You may
need to brace the rewind fork with something to tighten the screw. I
used the butt end of my tweezers.
Presto! Problem solved.
