Hi these Prinz slide projectors are made by the same Australian company who makes the Hanimex brand ,they use both the 120 rotary mags and the 36 or 46 slide trays,the Prinz brand are made for the British market,ive bought a great Prinz concord auto still in its orginal box,where about do you live?
put a flat screwdriver into slot between end of the lamp cover and the body of the unit. slide the cover out until the arrors line up on each side. then lift the cover out. undo the 2 screws holding the lamp unit in. lift out the lamp unit. do the reverse to install the new one
Try using a full thickness plastic slide mount. Some card slides are so thin that they miss the slide support when being dropped down from the magazine. Some magazines are designed specifically for card mounted slides whilst other are for glass mounted slides. Types shouldn't be mixed for correct and consistent operation.
Remember, mains voltages exist within the projector and thus the unit MUST be disconnected from the supply line whilst carrying out any servicing.
The reported fault sounds like sluggish operation of the advance/reverse mechanism. Lubricants used in the past tend to age and dry out so that the mechanism doesn't function correctly. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT TO DO SO, remove the top of the unit and locate the slide mechanism. Carefully clean with cotton buds dipped in pure electronic cleaner and then re lubricate, using an oil dripper with the finest industrial sewing machine oil - emphasis is on a 'drip' of oil on the moving pivot points. Put the top back on and try again.
Problems with remote controllers are suually associated with tarnished contacts either in the hand unit or the projector. Once again, the contacts can be carefully cleaned and all should be well once more.
If you are using Kodak Carousel magazines, make sure you are using the correct magazine for your slides - cardboard or glass mounts. Don't mix slides in a magazine, as this can also cause problems.
If the slide tray doesn't advance or reverse using the on-board or remote control buttons, chances are that: 1. You have a broken mechanism drive belt. 2. You have a jammed slide change mechanism module or 3. The mechanism trip contact is trapped behind its mating contact on the mechanism camshaft. All of these problems require service documentation & special tools. My recommendation is to find an Authorized Repair Dealer.
