Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Kodak Ektragraphic AF-2. and it does not turn the carousel forward or reverse. I can see the coil trying to move the lever but it does not make its full its rotation. Is this an issue with a belt, an adjustment or is it a weak coil?
Chances are that the LINK that connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the cycle lever is broken. This happens a lot on this generation of projectors. You can purchase the parts from: www.micro-tools.com, as Kodak no longer stocks parts. micro-tools should be able to provide installation instructions! Good Luck!

Chances are that your projector has a broken solenoid "link". This "Link" connects the slide change solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Over time this part becomes brittle & cracks, rendering the slide change non-functional. A pretty easy fix for an authorized repair dealer.

A common cause for that problem is a broken plastic "link" on the solenoid (Kodak part #217769). There are repair shops who can replace this part. It is very difficult to replace by yourself. http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/repair/slideProj/index.jhtml

Yeah. I like the $15 fix better. Go to Ebay and search for "Kodak Carousel Projector Advance Repair Kit". Before you purchase you can diagnose, and it comes with detailed instructions. The same guy also has a kits for other common problems, as well as the "tune up kit". Or you can buy the Solenoid Link, directly and try it without detailed instructions.

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.

First, with the tray off the projector, cycle the projector several times in forward and then in reverse. Next, check to make sure the locking ring on the top on the slide tray is LOCKED ON TIGHT. Then turn the tray upside down. On a 140 Slide tray there is an index notch. On the metal plate there is a index hole. Gently release the metal spring of the tray latch and rotate the metal plate until the notch and hole line up. Now the tray should drop on the projector and index properly.
