Kodak carousel 750H our carousel works except it does not slow down long enough to actually allow us to see the slides. The plug in remote seems to not have any impact whatsoever

The remote does not seem to be communicating when plugged in and makes no difference when not plugged in. This this is moving really fast .....how do I slow it down to see te pictures?

The issue is the clutch contact inside the projector. The contact is either broken or out of adjustment.
The clutch spring protrudes from the hub of the mechanism camstack. The camstack makes ONE revolution for ONE slide cycle. The clutch contact stops the clutch spring at the end of the cycle, putting the projector in "idle", awaiting the next "cycle" signal. Based on your description, this is your problem area. Turn the projector upside down & remove the bottom cover. CAREFULLY remove the internal lenses with a CLEAN, lint-free cloth. Wrap each lens in a separate cloth, as the lenses can shatter if exposed to rapid temperature changes. Next, remove the lamp with another cloth & keep it wrapped, as well. CAREFULLY plug the projector back in (DANGER - EXPOSED VOLTAGE!!) & turn the projector to the "Fan" position. Look for the rotating camstack. Turn the projector on & off quickly to locate the straight wire protruding out of the camstack hub. Turn the projector OFF & UNPLUG. Now look for the "J"-shaped wire that SHOULD make contact with the clutch contact. You will need to re-form the clutch contact wire VERY GENTLY (the wire is brittle!!), so that the straight wire is JUST BARELY trapped by the "J"-shaped wire. Now plug in & turn the power switch to "FAN" to check that the camstack only makes ONE revolution. If it stops: GREAT !! If it still revolves multiple times, repeat the process until the camstack STOPS after ONE cycle. This should resolve your continuous cycle problem. Good Luck !! Jim

The projector may not be jammed. It is very common in this generation of projectors for the cycle solenoid "link" to be broken. The "link" connects & transfers power from the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. If this is the case, you can still get parts from: www.micro-tools.com
The problem now become this is a difficult repair if you have no experience inside a Kodak Slide Projector. My advice is to contact a factory trained repair dealer with this information (although it very well may be cheaper and faster to buy a used projector on the internet !). Good Luck !!

I'm not sure what generation Carousel you have. And I'm assuming in it's current state you can place a tray on the projector & rotate it all around, but no slide will drop. That means something is holding the slide lift lever it it's "up" position.
The SELECT button is spring-loaded, so that it should return to "button up / slide lift lever down" when the button is released. You can check to see if the spring has broken or unhooked (requires removing the bottom cover). Beyond that, this could be a jam in the slide change mechanism, which requires a level of training to diagnose. I recommend you contact a factory-trained repair dealer for assistance. The good news: parts are still available from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !

A common cause for that problem is a broken plastic "link" on the solenoid (Kodak part #217769). There are repair shops who can replace this part. It is very difficult to replace by yourself. http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/repair/slideProj/index.jhtml

If reverse and select modes work correctly, it could require a slight adjustment of the cycle solenoid or (worst case) it may be a broken spring on the slide tray advance lever. To pinpoint the cause of your problem, take your projector to a factory-trained repair dealer.

SOURCE: 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 !!

Slide drops down but pops back up in Kodak carousel 750h


Sounds like what you are describing is "continuous cycle". If it is, then this can usually be fixed with a fairly quick adjustment. Once the bottom is off the projector, locate the clutch spring / clutch contact. The tip of the clutch spring (spring sticking straight out of the camstack hub) should be just visable over the clutch spring (the "L"-shaped spring contact). If bending is necessary to achieve a normal cycle, BEND CAREFULLY!! The springs are old and brittle!!.

Focus Lense Will Not move using the remote or the dial - What can I do? Kodak Carosel model 750H


The KODAK Carousel 750H was manufactured from roughly 1971 to 1981.
If you can push the focus knob toward the outside of the projector and manually remove the lens, then the problem is the gear on the focus shaft (the shaft the focus knob turns). The gear has either cracked and fallen off or is cracked and slipping on the shaft. Either way, the focus shaft needs to be replaced by a factory-trained repair technician.
