Hello,
If the projector is indeed a Carousel 650H, then the chances are that the LINK that connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the cycle lever has broken/cracked. This LINK is made of plastic, and over time the plasticizers that keep it flexible evaporate into the atmosphere, leaving the part brittle. The good news is that while Kodak no longer stcks parts for any slide projector, the company that purchased their repair parts is: www.micro-tools.com This is not an easy repair, but once the part is replaced it will last a very long time! To purchase the part, contact micro-tools. I believe they have specific directions for making this repair, if you feel you can do it. If not, contact an authorized repair center to make the repair for you. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Carousel does not turn. Cord remote does not move ...

Because you don't specify a model, I will assume it is an older generation, manufactured in the 60's or 70's. These series had a part called the "link", which was made of plastic. This "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. With age, the "link" becomes brittle & cracks, rendering slide change non-functional, regardless if you use the side buttons on the projector or the remote control. This is a difficult repair, but the parts are still available. I recommend you contact a factory-trained repair dealer to fix your projector.

SOURCE: 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 !

SOURCE: I have 2 760

In 2 of your machines the plastic links that were supposed to move the parts have snapped and they will have to be glued back together - no replacement parts available for them. In the other the motor is most likely not powered and you will need to find out if it's a control circuit probe or a power source problem (or just a broken wire) - at least a basic experience in electronics is required to fix it.
No, it's not a complicated job , and it only requires some screwdrivers, but it's fiddly. You must do it anyway since you have nothing to lose, or the projectors are destined for the skip.

Activating projector


For a model 4000 Carousel, there was no remote. You can lightly depress the "Select" bar by the handle, and that should cycle the projector in Forward. There is no cycling in reverse built into the model 4000, so you must hold down the select button and rotate the tray to the slide number you wish.

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

The select bar on the projector is not working.


The Carousel 600 Projector is at least 45 years old!! Great to hear it still turns on!!
Because the 600 has no forward or reverse buttons, forward is accomplished by "tickling" (very lightly push) the Select bar. If you can cycle it forward and no Select, then you need to adjust the cycle solenoid to find the balance between forward and select. If you have NO forward, then chances are either the cycle solenoid is WAY out of adjustment, or the LINK between the CYCLE SOLENOID PLUNGER and the CYCLE LEVER is broken. You should still be able to order the LINK from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! Jim

Kodak carousel makes a buzzing sound and will not advance


Your problem is most likely related to cycle contact adjustment. See the attached illustration for the parts involved and the SPECIFIC POSITION of the contact parts:

2 days ago my Kodak Carousel 760H projector started going backward or forward at will, inspite of which button was pushed. Now it will not go forward or backward with either the handheld or the side...


This is not an easy repair. It would probably be more cost-effective (if you will NEVER use the projector again) to rent one for the remainder of your project.

The problem you are describing is most likely a broken "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time, this plastic "link" gets hard & brittle, and cracks, giving the failure you describe. It is a significant tear-down of the projector by a trained technician.

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.

Everything works except for ther forward and backward rotation mechanism. When these buttons are pressed there is a buzzing sound perhap indication a motor problem?


This is a very common problem with these old Kodak projectors and is caused by a small part called the solenoid link that can be purchased separately or as part of this kit: https://www.micro-tools.com/store/item_detail.aspx?ItemCode=KODAK-KIT

There is also a guy on eBay, "atomk", who sells kits with very clear instructions on how to repair this problem yourself. Search for "Kodak Carousel Projector ADVANCE Repair Kit".

Good luck!
