Question about Kodak 4200 Slide Projector

1 Answer

Kodak Carousel 600 Projector - mechanism stops with slide out

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!

    This will fix the problem over 90% of the time for this style of projector. It may take a few minutes to a few hours for the WD-40 to penetrate the dried out grease on the camshaft. If it still does not work after 24 hours it will need to be stripped down completely by a technician- it's not something even a "handy" user wants to tackle.

    There seems to be a bit of confusion here: The solution I posted works on the Model 600 as the requester posted; ("Kodak Carousel 600 Projector - mechanism stops with slide out")....he simply posted it under the model 4200 category.

    To clarify- this applies to the model 600, 700 and 800 series NOT to the 4000/5000 series.

I want to show a 6% sales increase from last year to this year. How do i figure it?


take you sales for the last year and put it into a calculator, then press plus + and then 6 and then the per cent key %

Or

Take your sales from last year, multiply by 6 and then divide by 100. That is the amount you will increase. Add it to last years sales.

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck
