Hi Kevin,

I remember trying to revive several Canon 814 Electrics over the years and I
quickly discovered that many of the screws you need access to are hidden by
the faux black leather body covering. I never tried to remove the handle on
one, but if you don't have any luck with what's obvious, you may have to
start peeling off the covering.

BTW, not to disappoint or dissuade you, but my Canon attempts failed.
However, I'm far from being a technical expert -- it's just if you have a
dead super 8 camera you usually have nothing to lose most of the time other
than tinkering with it yourself. Of the few cameras I've had success with
are Sankyos. They're more transparent in how they're assembled.
