Question about Kodak 4200 Slide Projector

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.

Slide continuously change


The clutch contact on your KODAK Carousel 600 Projector has either burned off from use (the projector is almost 50 years old) or is out of adjustment. Either condition will allow the continuous cycle to happen. Because of the projector's age, parts will be really tough to come by. I have attached a diagram to show you what the affected parts look like. Be sure to take extreme caution - - there is exposed electrical contacts all over with the bottom cover removed. Also, be sure to remove the lamp and all optics before starting this repair.

Can I advance my slide tray manually?


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

I cannot get my projector to stop rotating the slides tray. No matter what setting the projector is on, it runs on "fan mode" and keeps rotating the tray. The Kodak Carousel 4400 that I have is...


This problem is caused by the cycle contact requiring an adjustment. Unplug the projector, remove the lamp module, turn the projector upside down & remove the bottom cover. Near the center of the projector is the Slide Change Mechanism. At the center of the mechanism is the Camstack. Refer to the illustration for the correct position of the clutch contact to the cycle pad. You will have to bend the clutch contact wire (GENTLY) a little bit, then plug in the projector & cycle it Forward a few times and check the position of the wire to the pad. This adjustment usually takes a trained hand a few times to get the position correct. If you don't want to tackle it, contact a factory-trained repair dealer for assistance. Good Luck !!jauburn_4.jpg

We actually have a kodak 600 carousel projector that will not advance the slides. there is a white "arm" that doesn't move right. Is there a small screw that should be attached?


Given the age of your Carousel Slide Projector, my guess is there is a broken "link" in the slide change mechanism. This "link" is plastic, and connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time, the "link" gets brittle & breaks, giving the failure condition you describe. You should consult an Authorized Repair Dealer to see if they can still get parts for your projector, which was built between 1964 and 1972. Best of luck !!

By the sounds of your description, your projector needs an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. This is best done by a factory-trained dealer, who has the service manual. Sorry I can't be of more help. Happy New Year!

Sometimes stop advancing. sometimes keep advancing 5 to 8 slides.


the mechanism needs cleaning. it is an almost purely mechanical device and needs greasing. the old grease gets hot and dusty and starts to get sticky. when this happens, the moving parts tend not to move. the mechanism needs to come out for a cleaning and regreasing.
