Question about Kodak Carousel 4400 Slide Projector

1 Answer

Will not advance although nothing is stuck in the machine.

My Kodak Carousel 4400 slide projector will not advance to the next slide. There is nothing stuck anywhere in the machine. we had been using the machine to few numerous old family slides. We would view for 45min-1hr and then let the machine rest for 20 or so min. When it stopped working we were part of the way through a carousel and with the next click of the remote it simply did not go. No advancing, not a sound. The lamp was still on. Any ideas on a way we could fix this ourselves?

Sounds like what your projector needs is a cycle contact adjustment.
Remove the slide tray & lamp module. Unplug the projector. Turn the projector upside down to remove the bottom cover (6 - T-15 TORX screws). Pry the bottom cover off from the handle side (Be careful!! The power cord is physically secured to the bottom cover!). I have attached an illustration for reference. Near the center of the projector you will find a contact as shown in the illustration. That contact needs to be in the position shown on the pad. You will have to slightly bend the "J"-shaped wire carefully(!!). Then plug the projector in, turn it on & cycle it a few times. The 2 contacts should look like the illustration when at rest. If they don't look like that, unplug the projector, "tweak" the contact wire a little bit more, plug the projector in & try again. This adjustment can take a factory-trained repair tech several bends to get it right (without breaking off the wire!!). Repeat until you are successful!

Kodak slide projector 4400 developed a noise when last used. Is it safe to continue using?


If the new noise is constant, check the cooling fan for debris of some sort stuck in it.
Do not use the projector if the fan is not working as it might overheat and ruin your slides.

Our Kodak projector 4400 advances the slides too rapidly (1 second or less each slide). This model does not have a variable automatic timer. Any way to slow it down?


The continuous cycle condition is caused by out-of-position cycle contacts. See the attached illustration for the correct position of the cycle contacts.

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.

I have a 760 H Carousal projector which will nor advane the tray to the next sidle. Souation?


If your projector neither advances or reverses the slide tray, then you most likely have a broken "link". This "link" connects the slide change solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time this part becomes brittle & cracks, rendering slide change non-functional. This repair needs to be made by an authorized repair dealer.

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 having a problem loading a tray onto my kodak carousel 4400 slide projector any solutions?


First, with the tray off the projector, cycle the projector several times in forward and then in reverse. Next, check to make sure the locking ring on the top on the slide tray is LOCKED ON TIGHT. Then turn the tray upside down. On a 140 Slide tray there is an index notch. On the metal plate there is a index hole. Gently release the metal spring of the tray latch and rotate the metal plate until the notch and hole line up. Now the tray should drop on the projector and index properly.

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!
