This link talks specifically about a Kodak slide projector. However the faulty mechanism in your Telex works in a similar way if you feel up to taking it apart. If you do, mark every screw and piece you remove, in a diagram. Though your symptom is sporadic advancing and the other link is continuous advancing, it's essentially the same cause, as sticking trigger mechanism in the clutch release.

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.

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!

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.

45 year old Slide projector


Ask around your local photo shops for a guy with a long grey beard to ask.

You could try advertising for an instruction book on your local freecycle and if Hanimex is still in business they might help you.

Some of those slide projectors were intuitive as they were completely manual but there were also magazine load, semi-auto and fully automatic versions that could also have a recorded commentary and backing music synchronised to the slide show.

Best of luck friend, have lots of fun with it.

My kodak carousel auto focus 760 carousel does not move but the projector makes a noise when I press the buttons how can I get it to move


Your Carousel 760 Slide Projector is about 45 years old. One of the problems I have seen as Carousel Slide Projectors age is that the plastic parts in the projector get brittle and break. Given your description of the observed condition is that probably either the gear on the focus motor shaft or the gear it interfaces with (or both) that is broken. Given the age of the machine, parts will be tough to locate. Try: www.micro-tools.com
for the best chance to locate those parts. Good Luck !! Jim

The select bar on the projector is not working.


The Carousel 600 Projector is at least 45 years old!! Great to hear it still turns on!!
Because the 600 has no forward or reverse buttons, forward is accomplished by "tickling" (very lightly push) the Select bar. If you can cycle it forward and no Select, then you need to adjust the cycle solenoid to find the balance between forward and select. If you have NO forward, then chances are either the cycle solenoid is WAY out of adjustment, or the LINK between the CYCLE SOLENOID PLUNGER and the CYCLE LEVER is broken. You should still be able to order the LINK from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! Jim

I'm assuming you are talking about a Kodak Slide Projector. If this is so, and it hasn't been used in at least 10 years, then it is probably an earlier-produced model. If the fan & lamp work and just the slides don't advance, then chances are you have a broken solenoid "link". This "link" joins the Cycle Solenoid and the Slide Change Mechanism together. As the projector ages, the link (made of plastic) gets hard, brittle & cracks. This will, in literally one slide change, make the projector go from working to not working.
Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this repair should not be tackled by the untrained. I recommend you contact a factory-trained dealer to make the repair.

Carousel 760 won't advance or reverse. When I press the button I hear a buzzing sound. How to fix?


Chances are, with a projector that old, that you have a broken "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, and it gets brittle & cracks over time. The buzzing sound you are hearing is the solenoid plunger bottoming out in the solenoid coil. This is a difficult, but there should still be parts available. I suggest you contact a factory-trained repair dealer to get your projector back working for another 20 years.

You may have trouble buying new. Kodak stopped manufacturing slide projectors in 2004. There are qualified repair dealers that you can send your projector to & get it fixed. What you describe is a pretty common problem with the Carousel Custom line as they age...

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 !!

I'm testing my 4400. With slide tray loaded (no slides in tray) when I advance the carousel the light from the lamp does not shine through. Does the carousel have to have slides drop down in order for the...


Yes!! The projector is equipped with a "dark shutter", which means light is only allowed to exit the projector when a slide is in the gate. That eliminates the "white screen strain" on your eyes when no slide is present. Happy New Year!
