I have a VIVITAR 5000 AF slide projector.

Occasionally, the slide gets stuck while operating the mechanical hand to change the slide. Most of the time it works when I push the slide carrier by hand. Very very infrequently, the projector actually throws out the slide.
I have ascertained that teh Kodak slides which are mounted on paper frames are much too thin for the mechanical hand pushing teh slide in and out. The solution is to remount teh slides on palstic frames or some how add to the thickness of the slide. I have not tried it yet , though.

Any more ideas?

Vivitar 3000af slide projector


While I am not sure of this feature on the Vivitar projectors, extensive testing has proven that running the cooling fan to accelerate cooling of a projection lamp will significantly shorten the lamp life. It is always recommended that (if possible) the projector system is cooled to room temperature without the fan running. Also, it is recommended not to move the projector until the lamp is completely cooled, as the lamp filament is extremely fragile when hot.

Where can I find a replacement bulb (24V 150 W Q.I. type Hanimex Type A1/216) for a vivitar slide projector.


Try searching at www.bulbman.com or at a "Batteries plus Bulbs" franchise. Look on the lamp for a 3-letter code. This ANSI code is unique to the lamp and is a great aid in lamp identification.

I need a rotary carrousel for 3000 AF


Your best bet is the internet - do a Google search for a new or used one. Be sure to be specific on the brand and model of the projector you need the tray to fit. "Carousel" is a Kodak trademark, and someone looking to make a quick buck might assume you can use a Kodak tray on your Vivitar (which we know you can't). And there's still a TON of Kodak trays out there. Good Luck! Jim

Vivitar 3000af slide projector. The auto focus does not operate. The focus mechanism light source is on. Does the sensor go bad? Does the mounting warp, causing an alignment/positioning problem? Are...


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

I have Hanimex Rondex 120 rotary magazines. I was told these would work in the Vivitar 5000AF. Is this true, as the slide on mine is jamming on the return?

I can't get the light to come on.


Sounds like your black screen shutter is not opening allowing light to pass through. Try it with the carousel and slides installed. Run a few passes.
