How do I open up a Rank Aldis 2000 Auto Deluxe Slide Projector to change the bulb and free a jammed slide?


There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance.

Mechaniism jammed.


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 650 slide projector that won't advance the slides with remote


Don, Does the projector still cycle from the side (on-board projector) buttons?? If it does, then you have a bad remote (parts are still available from: www.micro-tools.com). If it will not cycle from either the remote or the side buttons, then chances are that you have a broken solenoid link. If you are not familar with the projector & proper disassembly, I'd contact a dealer. Again, you can still get the necessary parts from micro-tools. Good Luck !!

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.

Slides will not advance.buttons do not seem to work


1. Does the SELECT button work? If so, hold it & remove the tray (if one is present). Skip to step 3.
2. If the SELECT button doesn't work, remove the slide tray (if one is on the projector) using the emergency tray release in the center hub of the projector. 3. 3. Turn the projector on & try to cycle a few times in reverse. This is how you clear a slide change mechanism jam in the projector.
4. If that didn't work, then either you have a broken cycle circuit wire (usually an orange wire within the projector) or the release wire is trapped under the cycle pad. Refer to the following diagram for the correct "at-rest" position of these 2 contacts. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then contact a factory-trained repair dealer).
Good Luck !!

Projector works fine, but will not advance slides. Does nothing with remote or with forward/reverse buttons on projector.


Try a different tray (preferably a Kodak 80-slide tray). If it works, then the problem is a tray problem. If it makes no difference, check the "SELECT" function. If that works, then your projector requires an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. If it does not work, remove the tray and push the "REVERSE" button 4 or 5 times (this will clear a mechanism jam if one has occurred). If you still have nothing, then chances are that the slide change mechanism drive belt is broken or stretched. try the diagnostic things I suggested. If they are no help, I'm sorry to say you need the help of a factory-trained repair dealer. Good Luck !!

I bought a used Elmo TRV-35H 35mm projector. The camera works fine, but the tray only moves in reverse when I press the forward or reverse button. And after moving through a few slides it then moves...


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.

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.
