Kodak Ektagraphic III AMT: turn on and it advances on its own without stopping

I have three Kodak Ektagraphic III AMTs at the office. Today when I went to prepare them for a presentation, I switched them on and the slide advancement just started. It ran through the whole carousel without stopping until it was turned off. Does anyone know how to fix this? If there is a fix?

This is a "wear problem" called continuous cycle. Pretty common, actually. It requires an adjustment of the cycle contact wire. Unplug the projector, turn the projector upside down and remove the lamp module from the back. Remove the six T-15 TORX screws that hold the bottom cover in place. Gently pull (the power cord is secured to the inside of the bottom cover) the bottom cover off & lay it next to the projector. Near the center of the projector you will see the cycle wire and pad (refer to the attached pic). You will need to carefully(!) bend the "J"-shaped wire so that when the projector is "idling", the wire lays at the center of the pad. Bend a very little, plug it in and cycle it a couple of times. If it still continuous cycles, unplug & bend a little more. It usually takes 3 or 4 adjustments before you get it in the correct position. Good Luck !!

Fix focusing on ektagraphic remote control


Ektagraphic III A did not have remote focus. Someone has probably substituted a remote from a higher functioning model on this projector. The forward / reverse functions on the supplied remote will continue to function correctly, but the focus buttons will not.
Good Luck !! Jim

Slide projector is loading slides too fast


On an Ektagraphic III-A there is an internal adjustment you can make of the wire that captures the slide change mechanism after one revolution (or ONE slide change). Over time and usage that wire either breaks off, burns off or gets out of adjustment. Look at the attached diagram for more detail:

Slides continue to advance,wont stop


The continuous cycle is caused by the slide change clutch contact. This contact is either burned off from excessive use or has somehow moved out of correct adjustment. I have attached an image that might help you identify correct alignment. For parts, contact: www.micro-tools.com

Kodak ektagraphic slide projector wont turn on


Hello, We may have to dig in the archives for this one but I will give it my best shot !!!! The unit has a main fuse, one of those glass types. It sounds like it blew the fuse. You may need to have this unit serviced by a repair shop. If you replace the fuse make sure it is of the same amp rating as the old one !! This is very important as to not start a fire.
Best Regards, Russell

Shutter stuck on Ektagrahpic III projector


First of all, the shutter will only open IF there is a slide in the gate. Assuming there is a slide in the gate, there are 2 things that could be preventing the shutter from opening:
1. Most likely - the shutter is spring-loaded. If the spring unhooks or is missing, the shutter will not open.
2. There is an adjustment that needs to be made after the spring is replaced or re-hooked (or just is out of adjustment. Refer to the Kodak Ektagraphic Service Manual @ the Kodak web site: http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/slideProj/manual/ektagraphic_sm.pdf
Good Luck! Jim

Why doesn't the slides advance?


I can only guess, but it is most likely caused by a worn or mis-adjusted cycle contact. I have attached an illustration to show you the proper orientation of the cycle contact. Good Luck !! Jim7390f9e7-725d-4085-9769-5537112e57b1.jpg

AF-3 carousel, lamp on but light guard prevents picture


Based on your description, I suspect the coil spring that tensions the "dark shutter" has either broken or has popped off it's mount. To be absolutely sure, take your projector to a factory-trained repair dealer.

Koday Ektagraphic III projection lamp differences


The newest style eliminated the heat absorbing lens and (I think) made the mirror do that job. This improved the light output marginally. I don't know if the new style of lamp module is still available or not. You can ask a Kodak dealer or if in the US/Canada (shipping applies) try www.micro-tolls.com and search for p/n 2H2256.

Alternatively you can use EXW lamps which are high brightness (though still 300 watts). However these are very expensive and have a short lamp life...15 hours I think.
