I think I pushed the reverse button while the projector was advanceing and now the projector will not advance or reverse the slide tray. I can hear it try to move the tray but nothing happens.
Bought a used 800carousel projector and it won't forward or reverse. Since I am doing a large project, I'd like to be able to do more than process one slide at a time. It's not my carousel nor my stack viewer. Hope you can help.
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.

Re: Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse
What's happened is what happens to all that style eventually. There is a small nylon link that has aged and broken in the heart of the mechanism. A very skilled amateur can repair this but it may take a professional. If you are in the USA, start at http://www.kodakparts.com/Pre_1981.html or http://www.fargo-ent.com/kodak.html if you want to try it yourself. It's the same company, basically. If youa re in Canada, go to Doug Banks http://www.photographicrepairs.com/

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
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 used to have a KODAK warranty dealer in New Jersey - - not sure how close to you, though...... Comet Camera & Video Repair in Cherry Hill, NJ 08002; 856-857-9250. I am unsure of the current status of this business, as Kodak stopped authorized repairs of slide projectors in 2007. Good Luck!!
The KODAK Carousel 760H was manufactured approximately between 1971 & 1981. The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". This "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Repair parts are still available, but this is a repair best left to a factory-trained technician. Contact an Authorized Repair Dealer.
the kodak projectors need occasional cleaning and lubrication of the mechanism. the grease gets gummy and sometimes siezes the moter as well. take it in to a shop for a good cleaning or, if you're mechanically inclined, you could do it yourself. just remember which screws go where.
do you hear any sounds when you press the button? if not, the button may be malfunctioning. if it doesn't make a sound or movement in reverse either, there is a bad connection between the controls and the solenoids. if it does try to advance and not move the carousel, it's a mechanical problem in the mechanism. usually due to the grease getting sticky from heat and age. take it in for a good cleaning and an adjustment. there are a few cams in there that wear out after a while, too.
In a word - yes. Most anything on a Kodak Slide Projector can be fixed. If your Carousel 760H will cycle in Reverse but not Forward, then it's an adjustment of the cycle solenoid. If the projector will not cycle slide forward ort reverse, then it is probably the cycle solenoid "Link". The "Link" connects the plunger of the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The good news: parts are available (www.micro-tools.com). You will need to seek out a factory-trained dealer to make either one of these repairs for you.
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.
