Question about Kodak 4200 Slide Projector
We plugged this projector in after years of non-use and at first it endlessly keep slides moving in and out without stopping. After a while it would stop and we could view slides, but now the assembly will cycle and stop with the slide out. It seems that the little clutch has come out of alignment - the little tang that is stopped by the arm connected to the advance button is not where is used to be. We have been trying to manually advance the mechanism (with the bottom cover off we would "help" the main assembly advance by rotating it about 90 - 120 degrees). Do you know of a proceedure that we can use to get everything back to normal?
Open the back up and spray just a LITTLE bit of WD-40 into the cavity where the bit of spring emerges from the grease covered cam shaft. This will loosen up the grease that has dried up. It may take up to half an hour to work on the grease. If things are improved but not perfect, repeat. If any WD-40 spills out, mop it up with Q-tips and especially avoid the rubber belt.
Please do NOT advance things manually ans especially don't pry apart any of the plastic or metal cams on the cam shaft in an effort to correct the timing. You will put it out of waht and it will take a whack of time and/or an expert to get it back in whack!
