Question about Kodak Ektagraphic III-E-Plus 35mm 140 Slides Rotary Carousel, 80 Slides Rotary Carousel Slide Projector
Your unit could have several problems. First you need to remove the bottom of the unit. Turn it upside down and unwind the power cord from the storage area. Remove the 6 star screws. Remove the bottom cover. Now you can access the cycle solenoid and lever. From this point on you will need to be very careful. Plug the unit in. Turn on and depress the forward button. Observe the cycle lever and how it works. It could be out of adjustment and not pulling the mechanism far enough in the reverse mode. If that is the case adjust the solenoid location so the lever pulls the mechanism further in reverse mode. If adjustment is not the problem check for dried grease on the cycle cam. Clean all the grease off with an electrical degreaser (do the adjustments and the degreasing with the power disconnected). The unit uses special grease (high temp) which comes from Kodak. You should be able to try it without grease to see if the problem is solved. If it is then you will need to get some grease part #TL2730. If you do not feel confident doing any of the procedures you will need to find a shop that can work on these units. Most people are not familiar with them as they are fairly old. Cost should not exceed $50 US. Good luck.

Before you take it apart, try holding down on the reverse button for a second or two. The reverse cycle requires the button to be held down longer than the forward cycle. If the button is just pushed quickly, it will go forward instead of backwards.
