The 16mm Elmo Xenon Projector Question.

Here's another tech esoterica question for the collective you:

I just bought a tabletop 16mm Elmo Xenon projector off a fellow in Toronto,
brought it out for a show this past weekend. Alll was well (really well!
tabletop xenon = magic!) for the first 40:00 or so, but midway through the
last film the projector started SLOWING DOWN, as if it wasn't getting enough
electricity all of a sudden. It was plugged into a circuit that didn't have
much other electrical demand on it, and while I have yet to do tests to see
how it'll fare in the future, I'm wondering if any of y'all have experienced
this sort of thing. The projector is old (hadn't been used in a decade, he
said) but in good condition. Any thoughts?

Much Obliged.
