Lmr18, if you are still looking for a source of parts, it would depend on where you are. If in the US, Google Fargo Enterprises Kodak. If in Canada, Doug banks Photo or email me at bytebackkw@yahoo.ca

SOURCE: I bought a used kodak

The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse. If you are not seeing these levers move as described, then the chances of your projector needing a repair are likely. The good news: parts are still available. The bad news: You will have to find a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repairs for you.

The purpose of the "SELECT BAR" on a Carousel 650H is to eject the slide. If you press & hold the select bar it allows you to rotate the tray to the slide you want (or Zero & remove the tray). If you can not advance or reverse the slide tray using either the remote buttons or the buttons on the side of the projector, then chances are you have a broken part in the slide change mechanism. The possibilities are numerous, and really requires a trained tech to analyze your specific failure. Sorry the news isn't better (or simpler!).

SOURCE: my slide projector carousel does not advance

Does the projector run in reverse?? If so, then what you are facing is a timing adjustment.
If it does not cycle in either direction, then there is a high probability that the solenoid "link" is broken. The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism.
The good news: There are still parts available (www.micro-tools.com). The less-than-good-news: both fixes are difficult and best handled by a factory-trained repair dealer.

By the sounds of your description, your projector needs an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. This is best done by a factory-trained dealer, who has the service manual. Sorry I can't be of more help. Happy New Year!

You are experiencing a fairly common problem called continuous cycling. It is caused by use or mis-adjustment.
If you feel comfortable with a electro-mechanical adjustment, take a look at the attached picture for the correct alignment of the cycle contacts. The positioning is critical for correct operation.

Turn the projector upside down (unplugged), and remove the bottom screws. Then carefully remove the bottom cover. The cycle contact assembly will be in the center of the projector.
If you need help, contact a authorized repair dealer. Good Luck!!

My Kodak 650H slide projector carousel won't advance?


Chances are what you need is a new cycle solenoid LINK. They can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com They should have instructions to help you install the new part, as well. Good Luck!!

Kodak 650 slide projector slide wont advance or reverse


The most likely cause of the projector malfunction is a broken solenoid link. The link is a white plastic part that connects the cycle solenoid plunger and the cycle lever in the slide change mechanism. The plastic the link was molded from gets brittle over time and cracks, rendering it non-functional. Repair parts can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com. I have attached a diagram to better reveal how to remove 17e8a06e-3109-45d5-8a1c-1f55afc5db13.jpgthe parts involved. Good Luck! Jim

Can I advance my slide tray manually?


A Kodak Carousel 600 has no Forward/Reverse buttons for tray movement. The only way to advance the tray with the slide change mechanism is by LIGHTLY depressing the SELECT bar. To manually advance the tray, push and hold the SELECT bar down fully.While holding the SELECT bar, you should be able to rotate the tray by hand. Good Luck!! Jim

Kodak 850 Carousel Projector tray won't advance


The Carousel 850 is 40-45 years old. The symptoms you describe indicate the timing is off. Timing is an "adjust & test"..... try a SMALL adjustment and then test it.... adjust again & test again. Repeat until you get smooth tray action. See the attached illustration:

Kodak 600 projector has not advance button


You're correct!! The Kodak Carousel 600 does not have an ADVANCE button. To advance the tray you LIGHTLY depress the SELECT bar on the edge of the projector. There is no reverse capability, other than holding the SELECT bar down fully and rotating the tray by hand. Enjoy your projector!! Jim

I bought a used kodak 650 carousel slide projector and i can't get the slide tray to load. Is it because it came with a 140 slide tray instead of an 80 slide tray?


The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse.

We actually have a kodak 600 carousel projector that will not advance the slides. there is a white "arm" that doesn't move right. Is there a small screw that should be attached?


Given the age of your Carousel Slide Projector, my guess is there is a broken "link" in the slide change mechanism. This "link" is plastic, and connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time, the "link" gets brittle & breaks, giving the failure condition you describe. You should consult an Authorized Repair Dealer to see if they can still get parts for your projector, which was built between 1964 and 1972. Best of luck !!

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.
