First of all, you'll have to get the slides out of the projector. You may have to use needle-nosed pliers to remove them. Once removed, cycle the projector 3 or 4 times using the REVERSE button. The jam will be cleared. Good Luck !!! Jim

Kodak 140 slide carousel trays jam


The 140 tray with older slides and an older projector is a gamble with slide jams every time!! Slides have a natural curve that gets bigger over time. In addition, as slides age, the corners will begin to de-laminate (aka: "dog-eared" slide). Because the slide slot in a 140-tray is SO NARROW, the least little deformation of the slide from normal will cause the slides not to drop. My recommendation, given the age of the projector, trays and slides, is to get rid of those 140 trays and stick with 80-slide trays. Good Luck !! Jim

Stuck slide


I HAVE AN E2 AND IT LOOKS VERY SIMILAR.
IN THE ENLARGED PHOTO YOU WILL SEE WHAT APPEARS AS A SCREW HEAD IF YOU TURN THAT SLIGHTLY WITH A SCREWDRIVER IT WILL RETRACT THE PINS YOU SEE IN THE 12 AND 8 OCLOCK POSITION. WHILE HOLDING THE SCREWDRIVER WITH THE PINS RETRACTED YOU THEN CAREFULLY LIFT THE CAROUSEL TRAY FROM THE SIDE OPPOSITE FROM THE ENGAGED STUCK SLIDE.......
....YOU CAN THEN RETRIEVE YOUR STUCK SLIDE...
....OPERATE THE PROJECTOR WITHOUT A TRAY OR SLIDE TO RESET THE MECHANISM...
......AFTER REMOVAL YOU MUST REALIGN THE BOTTOM CAROUSEL TRAY PLATE BY RETRACTING THE SPRING CLIP NEAR THE SLIDE SLOT AND ROTATE THE PLATE UNTIL THE ENGRAVED ARROW LINES UP WITH THE DETENT. (THESE INSTUCTIONS ARE ETCHED ON THE BOTTOM OF MOST CAROUSEL TRAYS.....THE DETENT IS OPPOSITE THE INDEX NOTCH WHICH IS USED TO MOUNT THE TRAY TO THE PROJECTOR...
I HOPE THIS HELPS. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF A TREASURED SLIDE.

Kodak carousel 750H will advance, but the slide drops down and then pops right back up so you don't get a chance to see the picture. Any ideas on how to fix this?


You are experiencing a condition called "continuous cycle". This is usually caused by excessive wear. To attempt a fix, unplug the projector from the power source. Turn the projector upside down & remove the 4 screws & elevation foot that secure the bottom cover in place. Near the center of the slide change mechanism is the clutch contacts (look for the hub at the end of the camstack). One is a straight, small diameter wire protruding out of the hub. The other is a "L"-shaped wire (the same diameter) that SHOULD capture the straight wire. The wire is captured and the cycle is complete. What has happened is one of those 2 contacts has worn, allowing camstack to constantly rotate, causing a continuous cycle. You must GENTLY re-form one or both of those contacts just enough so that the straight contact is captured by the "L"-shaped contact at the end of the cycle. Good luck !!

Try turning your projector on without a slide tray. Cycle it 2 or 3 cycles in reverse. Place the tray back on the projector and cycle forward. By cycling it a few times in reverse, it re-sets the cycling mechanism.

Slides won't advance or reverse


The AF-2 is suffering from old age! The problem you are experiencing is "continuous cycle", and is caused by the cycle contact either being bent or worn to the point it can't stop the cycle camstack at the end of a slide change. If you are familiar with projector repair, I can give you specific instructions. Otherwise, I suggest you locate an authorized repair dealer. Even though the projector is old, all the necessary parts are available from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! Jim

Why doesn't the slides advance?


I can only guess, but it is most likely caused by a worn or mis-adjusted cycle contact. I have attached an illustration to show you the proper orientation of the cycle contact. Good Luck !! Jim7390f9e7-725d-4085-9769-5537112e57b1.jpg

I just dragged this projector out of my grandma's basement. I have a new bulb and the projector appears to be in working condition except for the slide advance--the slides advance continuously. How...


There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance. (Some models will have a couple of pre-set advance settings between "manual" and "automatic." These usually advance the slides every three to ten seconds.) Push the tab to the manual setting--this will allow you to use the buttons towards the front of the machine to advance your slides.If moving the tab doesn't work it may be broken or jammed.

Elmo TRV-35H "eating" slides


CAUTION: Mains voltage connections are exposed once the base of the projector is removed. ONLY attempt repairs if you are confident of your skills!

There are several possible causes for this problem:

1. Kodak produce two different types of carousel magazines - one for glass mounts and one for card mounts. You must not mix glass and slide mounts in the magazine - it causes the focus mechanism to 'hunt' and also causes the slides to jam, as described.
2. These projectors are almost antiques ..... lubricants dry out and the mechanisms slow down and stick! Some 'technicians' apply graphited grease over the top of the dried stuff, hoping it will soak in! Clean as much of the old lubricants off with 'electronic component' solvent on cotton buds particulalrly around all of the cams. Pay particular attention to the slide lifter cam follower - grease here can cause the lifter to only lift, or drop, the slide partially though its full travel. I use 'CopperEase' very, very sparingly on the cams (NOT on the face of the slide lifter cam) and haven't experienced any problems.
You should not adjust the cams on their shaft.
3. The slide pressure plate is acuated through one of the cam followers, opening and closing at the right time. There is a very fine pivot bar at the bottom of the plate. The pivot points can be lubricated with a single small drop of fine industrial sewing machine oil. Avoid 3in1 oil at all cost!

Jammed paper


Removed the new paper from feed slot, pressed the on button which allowed the `grabber` to release the jammed paper slightly and then was able to [with the aid of long tweezers] remove the jammed paper through the feed slot.

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


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.
