Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My Kodak Carousel projector 850H, after an extended period of non-use, will no longer advance or reverse slides. I have tried several trays, both 80 capacity and 140 capacity, with the same result: there is a slight buzzing sound and I can see the lift mechanism pop up, but the tray does not rotate to the next slide. The bulb is still good, and, by pressing the advance button with my right hand, I can push the tray forward with my left hand and project a slide. With the tray removed, the select button activates one of the pair of black tabs (the tab toward the back of the projector), and I see the white lift shoe pop up. Could all of this be the result of a jam in the mechanism, say a dust ball or other foreign matter? Probably not a dust ball, inasmuch as the projector, though unused for a long time, has been stored in its original box. I would appreciate any observations that you may be able to offer. Thank you, Donald Spear email: donandpat2@cox.net

SOURCE: Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse

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.

SOURCE: I bought a used kodak

The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse. If you are not seeing these levers move as described, then the chances of your projector needing a repair are likely. The good news: parts are still available. The bad news: You will have to find a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repairs for you.

SOURCE: problems with using a 140 carousel on a Kodak 4600

There is nothing wrong with your slide trays. Your projector needs an adjustment to the cycle contact assembly. The constant cycle mode is a dead-giveaway. You need to take the projector to an Authorized Repair Dealer for this adjustment. Should be relatively quick - - it takes longer to get the case apart than to make the repair!

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.

First of all, if you have the remote that came with the projector, plug it in & try that. I suspect that it will not work, but it is worth a try. If it does work, you are a lucky person!
The problem you are experiencing is very common for a projector of that age. The cycle solenoid "link" is broken - or worse - the solenoid has an "open" circuit.This is a pretty complicated replacement and adjustment of the solenoid position that follows. You can purchase the parts required from www.micro-tools.com They also have instructions on their website. If you feel this repair is beyond what you want to get into, contact an authorized repair dealer for assistance. Good Luck !!

Lift gate tray


No. The slide tray should rotate when the forward or reverse buttons are pushed. Slides are not required for correct actuation of the tray. Before attempting any adjustment, try a few different trays (it may be a tray issue!). A 140-slide tray will be much tougher to get correct movement from than with a 80-slide tray on an older slide projector.... The 140 tray pushes the interface specification between a tray & a projector to the max.

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

Kodak 600 projector has not advance button


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 have a Kodak 850H the tray will not automaticly turn. There is nothing stuck.


The KODAK Carousel 850H was manufactured from approximately 1971 to 1981.
Chances are the problem you are describing is a broken cycle solenoid "link". This link connects the slide cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. It was made of plastic, which gets hard & brittle with age. Parts are still available, but this is not an easy fix and should go to an Authorized Repair Dealer to repair the problem.

Will Not advance or go back with remote


If you have another Slide Tray (preferably an 80-slide tray), try that. If it exhibits the same failure with another tray, then you have one of 2 problems: either a mechanical problem that is preventing the direction lever to advance or reverse the tray; OR you have an electrical problem - the low voltage that controls the advance circuitry is either too low or not present. Either way, you need an KODAK Authorized Repair Dealer to help you sort this out.
