The only way to do that is disconnect the red, black and grey wires from the autofocus switch assembly, but you have to take the projector apart to get to it. if you do, it's on the bottom right side (facing the front of the projector) of the lens.

You could also just disconnect either of the wires going to the AF motor. That's all the AF on/off switch does on similar Ektagraphic models. THen if you change your mind, its easy to fix.

Dissamble 4600 projector


Check out the Service Manual posted at: http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/slideProj/manual/ektagraphic_sm.pdf

There are 6 screws that fasten the bottom cover in place. Remove the Slide Tray, unplug the projector and turn the projector upside down. Remove the 6 screws. Hold the projector down on your workbench with one hand and pull up on the bottom cover with the other. Easiest place to get a grip is in the projection lens opening, but be careful not to bend and internal metal parts in the process! Also be careful because the power wires are fastened to the bottom cover and they are routed near the flat edge of the projector (opposite of the handle side) - pull apart slowly from the handle side. You may need a wide, flat-blade screwdriver to "coax" the bottom cover off. Good Luck !! Jim

I have a Kodak 650H carousel slide projector and it won't stop advancing the slides unless you turn it off. Will the answer for the 4600 work on this type also?


The answer for the 2 machines is similar, but the repair is different. The clutch contact wire on the 650H has burned through the clutch contact. If it has just worn a notch in the clutch contact, you can bend the contact wire slightly to get it away from the notch. If the tip of the contact wire is burned off, you will be better off buying a used slide projector from someone, as parts for this generation of machines are long gone.
For the 4600 the problem is the same but the parts look different. Refer to the attached diagram for detail. The wire must rest at the center of the pad. You can use this diagram to roughly locate the similar parts in your 650H. Good Luck !!

Problems with using a 140 carousel on a Kodak 4600


There is nothing wrong with your slide trays. Your projector needs an adjustment to the cycle contact assembly. The constant cycle mode is a dead-giveaway. You need to take the projector to an Authorized Repair Dealer for this adjustment. Should be relatively quick - - it takes longer to get the case apart than to make the repair!

Tray will not advance


The problem you describe is most likely a broken spring on the lever that moves the tray forward or reverse. The repair requires dis-assembly of the projector and the slide change mechanism and adjustment after re-assembly. I recommend you contact a factory trained repair dealer to make the repair.

Need to make it advance automatically


Sure! Not only did Kodak sell an external automatic timer that plugs into the remote socket, a number of other companies had them as well. If you can't find one searching online for "Kodak slide projector plug-in timer", try: www.micro-tools.com Good Luck !

Properly loading the slide tray


If the first slide is visable and consecutive slides are not, the "dark shutter" (a feature that prevents the eye-popping bright white screen when no slide is present) needs adjustment. A fairly easy adjustment for a factory-trained service dealer with the service manual and the correct tools.

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


You have jammed the slide change mechanism. Turn the projector off. Remove the tray using the emergency release slot in the center hub of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle it a few times in reverse, then in forward. That usually clears a mechanism jam.
