SOURCE: focusing into slide transfer box

Yes, use a shorter projection lens. You didn't say what focal length your projection lens is, but Kodak and many of their OEM vendors made very short focal length lenses.

SOURCE: I have on old Sawyer's

Hi burnha6,

The Sawyer's Rotomatic projector is a manual slide projector. The reasons the brand became popular is because of the ease changing the bulb. Please follow the instructions below on how to change the bulb in a Sawyer Slide Projectors.

1. Turn off the system completely. Please make sure to let the machine and bulb to cool down.

2. Now, stand behind the slide projector and grasp the top left and right edge of the cover. Press in on the fixed sides cover, it is located just below the seam where the top part fits over the sides. Pry up on the top part to remove the cover from the machine.
--> the Sawyer slide projector does not use clips or screws to hold the top cover in place.

3. Pull the old bulb out of the machine by grabbing it with a clean cloth and tugging upward. To prevent the slide projector from lifting, please hold the body of the machine steady while doing this.

4. Grab the new bulb and insert it into the slide projector. Line up the narrow, rectangular base of the bulb with the bulb slot behind the lens, and push on the bulb to make the connection.

5. Last, put the cover back the top of the machine and press down around the edge to fit back over the sides.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I just dragged this projector out of my

There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance. (Some models will have a couple of pre-set advance settings between "manual" and "automatic." These usually advance the slides every three to ten seconds.) Push the tab to the manual setting--this will allow you to use the buttons towards the front of the machine to advance your slides.If moving the tab doesn't work it may be broken or jammed.

I can't comment on the projector, but I can tell you that paper-mounted slide will warp, due to the affects of temperature and humidity. Warped mounts will mess up the auto-focus in any projector.
Good Luck !! Jim

How do i turn off auto focus?


To strictly turn off the auto-focus, you have 2 options:
1. Some generations of 5600's have an Autofocus On/Off Switch. If so equipped, move the switch to "Off".
2. Remove the bottom cover. Locate the auto-focus motor and clip on of the wires that power the motor.
If repair is what you want to do, the problem becomes more complex and expensive! You will have to contact: www.micro-tools.com
You can order the 2 special tools, instructions and any other parts you need from them. When Kodak stopped supporting the slide projector business, micro tools bought out the remaining repair parts.

Why does autofocus keeps moving in and out on some slides


The autofocus system isn't really "autofocus". It is a measuring system - you manually focus the first slide, which sets the distance from the front of the slide in the gate to the back of the projection lens. By the focus motor moving the projection lens, subsequent slides will maintain that same distance. Continuous focus adjustment suggests that:
1> The curvature of the slide is changing because of the varying heat absorption rate of the transparency.
2> The autofocus system is out of calibration.
3> The autofocus system has a bind (it is being restricted from free operation).
About the only thing a user can do is to make sure ALL slides are oriented the same way in the tray. Beyond that, you will need a service manual and 2 or 3 specialized tools. Parts and tools can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com

Good Luck !! jim

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

Kodak carousel 760h projector


The auto-focus system in Kodak slide projectors is really an auto-measurement system: One set manually, the system is supposed to maintain that distance on all subsequent slides. Correct orientation of the slides is that they are all placed in the slide tray in the SAME direction (the matte side of the transparency facing toward the screen). The measurement is from the FRONT of the slide transparency to the BACK of the projection lens. REPAIR calibration of the system requires 2 special tools: a RANGE SLIDE and a TARGET SLIDE. These tool slides and the calibration procedure SHOULD be available from: www.micro-tools.com They purchased all remaining repair parts from Kodak when Kodak stopped supporting slide projectors.

Kodak 5200 focus slide not working


The auto-focus system requires adjustment / set-up with special tools if the auto-focus no longer functions correctly. Before ordering the tools from: www.micro-tools.com
check a couple of things:
1. Is the "Auto-Focus on-off Switch" in the "ON" position?
2. Put a slide that is as dark as possible in the slide gate. Power on, lamp on. Look down into the gate, on the front side of the slide. You should see a "S"-shaped light near the center of the slide.
If you have validated both of the conditions above, then I would contact my friends at micro-tools for the special tools. They should be able to provide you with adjustment instructions.
Good Luck !! Jim

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

Ekatagraphic slide projector that won't advance the carosel forward or backward. it will pop a slide up and down. it sounds jammed it humms when buttons are depressed any ideas?


The most common causefor the failure of the slide tray to advance or reverse is the breakageof this small Link (part # 217769). It fits on the end of the solenoid actuator arm and is held in place by a Rivet (part # 159943). Thereplacement of this part does not take a rocket scientist, however, amoderate mechnical aptitude skill is required.
This Set contains 1 Link and 1 Rivet. If your projector Does NOT have a focus motor in it, then this is the kit for you. If your projector does have a focus motor, please order "KODAK-KIT" From: https://www.micro-tools.com/store/item_detail.aspx?ItemCode=LINK
