Kodak Slide Projector

I am working with a Kodak slide projector, when i turn the power on, then turn the dial to "lamp on", the fan begins and i can see the light is working, BUT it will not stop advancing. I can look inside the lens and it seems something is blocking the view but i do not know what. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! Charlie

Plastic door/off w/4 screws removed, pushed/pulled the hinge bar and removed the metal door plate. 10Q for help. Now the lamps of modules (3) do not lite, fan works . No light Lo or Hi.

If the lamp modules do not light (assuming good lamps), then your problem has to be the lamp thermal fuse. The lamp thermal fuse is located on the back wall of the cavity when you remove the lamp module. It is a small, silverish cylinder with wires coming out of each end. It is held in place by a screw that can only be accessed by removing the bottom cover of the slide projector. Specific instructions can be found in the service manual posted on the Kodak website (search under "support" then "slide projectors"). Parts are no longer available from Kodak, but you can get most parts from:
I hope this helps !!

I am unable to latch the slide tray into my 760H Kodak carousel projector. The lamp and fan are working. Any suggestions? Thanks

I think I already answered this one, but it still appears in my question cue.
Make sure the locking ring (on the top of the tray) is on TIGHT on the slide tray. Turn the tray upside down. Rotate the metal plate until the arrow stamped into it lines up with the notch on the bottom of the plastic tray. That should solve your problem. Jim

Got projector out after several years of non use. Lamp would not light. We purchased a new bulb and installed it. Still doesn't work. Fan runs and all, but bulb will not light.

Check the internal power and lamp fuse. Sometimes, when a projector is stored, an area of corrosion develops around the lamp pins and lamp holder. If you carefully clean both the holder and the pins on the original lamp you may find it works OK!

Chances are that if the cooling fan is running, then you burned out the lamp. Contact or for a quote on the lamp. If your projector is a Carousel 4400, then you will need to replace the lamp with an ANSI Code "FHS" lamp. If that's all that is wrong with the projector the lamp will cost you about $40 (best guess).

The fan has stopped working, and the projector has shut down and will not turn on. The bulb is still OK.

The thermal fuse behind the lamp module has opened (usually due to a high internal temperature). On some occasions, this is caused by a fan belt failure. Because this involves primary voltage, I would recommend you take the projector to an authorized repair dealer.

Kodak 750h slide projector; brand new bulb, but it won't turn on/light up? Could it be the lamp socket? I did open the machine up, and there is a ceramic part; thermal fuse? resitor? or Solenoid??? Not...

If the lamp is new, then your problem is caused either by the lamp socket that the lamp slides into, or the lamp thermal fuse.
The white part over the fan is a dropping resistor, which allows the projector to operate in the "LOW LAMP" position of the power switch.
A factory-trained service dealer can help you locate the parts or (better suggestion) isolate & repair your projector.

Kodak slide projector Kodak 600 burning bulbs, fan is working

Excessively short lamp life is usually caused by material building up on the lamp socket terminals, caused by arcing. This material build-up causes higher current loads and will ultimately shorten lamp life. A new lamp socket is a simple solution to your problem!

The Fan does not run on my Ektalite 1500

Either the power motor has failed or the fan belt has broke. With the lamp removed (important!!), turn the projector on and see if the slide change mechanism functions. If it functions (moves your slide tray back & forth), then chances are that it is the fan belt. If it does not move the tray, then I would suspect the lamp thermal fuse has opened. Either problem will require a repair by a factory-trained repair dealer.

Light won't come on, replaced old light bulb.

First, check to see if the lamp lights at all (spill light coming out of the projector near the fan). If it does, then the problem could be just the "dark shutter" not opening. If the lamp does not light, it could be a couple of things: it could be the lamp thermal fuse has opened or it could be a bad lamp socket.
Sounds like you need to seek out a factory-trained repair dealer for this one, to narrow down the possibilities!

No, there is no re-set...there is however a thermal-coupler which will burn out instead of your projector burning up. It is close to the "Kodak" name plate inside and right behind the lamp socket. You CAN by-pass this unit but I don't reccommend this since it then could become a fire hazzard. We still repair those:
