I'm considering buying one of these projectors, but the seller informed me that it has a broken ceramic resistor. Is this an easy repair? Are these readily available? Thanks!

I haven't found these to be that easy to find in the proper value. However, what they do is dim the lamp (form High to Low). If the ceramic is the only part broken - it is common - as long as there is no risk of contact with the projector's metal frame, there is no problem to solve. It will continue to work fine for years. Unless the resistor has been moved or lifted a bit towards the projector's body, it can't come into contact with the body so there's no shock hazard. But determine the position before using it in case the previous user monkeyed with it a bit.

If in fact it no longer works, first, check that the soldered connections on either side are good. If they are, you can either cut the resistor out with strong diagonal wire cutters or, assuming no shock risk as above, ignore it. All that will happen is that you will not have the Low lamp function; you'll only have the High.

Emergency release slot in the center hub

Not sure that I understand your question..... Yes, Kodak Slide Projectors have a quick release mechanism built into the center hub. It can be in the form of a "coin slot" (earlier projectors) or a "release lever" (later projectors). If the issue is that it is broken, repair requires a total teardown / disassembly of the projector. If this is the case, you may be better off buying a replacement projector off the internet. Good Luck !! Jim

760h kodak 760h forward and reverse

I'm assuming you mean that the projector won't cycle forward or reverse??? If so, the problem is caused by a broken SOLENOID LINK. The LINK should be able to be purchased from:, along with instructions for installation. For what it's worth: This is not an easy repair. Good Luck !! Jim

Kodak Ektagraphic AF -2 carousal not rotating

Given the age of the projector, I suspect that the solenoid link is broken. The link joins the solenoid plunger to the cycle lever. The good news is you can still buy parts for your projector. purchased the entire projector parts inventory from Kodak a few years ago. They can also help you with instructions to install the parts, or if you prefer, hook you up with a trained service technician to perform the repair for you. Good Luck! Jim

I suggest you contact: They are a repair / spare parts re-seller. They have a wide assortment of Power Cords, and if you provide them with the manufacturer & model, they should have a cord available to fit your projector. Good Luck!!

When remote button is pushed the unit will not cycle unit is jammed kodak carousel 750h

The projector may not be jammed. It is very common in this generation of projectors for the cycle solenoid "link" to be broken. The "link" connects & transfers power from the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. If this is the case, you can still get parts from:
The problem now become this is a difficult repair if you have no experience inside a Kodak Slide Projector. My advice is to contact a factory trained repair dealer with this information (although it very well may be cheaper and faster to buy a used projector on the internet !). Good Luck !!

Kodak Projector 760H. Carousel won't move forward or reverse. With remote or pressing the actual buttons.

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.

Lock release broken

Replacing the lock release is a major repair, because the entire projector has to be dis-assembled in order to get to the release from the inside. It very well may be cheaper for you to buy a used projector online.

Kodak 750h slide projector; brand new bulb, but it won't turn on/light up? Could it be the lamp socket? I did open the machine up, and there is a ceramic part; thermal fuse? resitor? or Solenoid??? Not...

If the lamp is new, then your problem is caused either by the lamp socket that the lamp slides into, or the lamp thermal fuse.
The white part over the fan is a dropping resistor, which allows the projector to operate in the "LOW LAMP" position of the power switch.
A factory-trained service dealer can help you locate the parts or (better suggestion) isolate & repair your projector.

No light

If you know someone else that has a projector of that vintage, try swapping lamp modules! The lamp socket that the lamp seats in can build up material from arcing on the contacts and that material insulates the contact surface from the lamp pins. There are still parts (lamp sockets) available (, but it may be more of a repair than you want to undertake. Consider buying a new lamp module on the web or finding a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repair. Good Luck !!
