The slides keep advancing very quickly the slide advance timer lever does nothing. It seems to be stuck at top speed.

You are describing "continuous cycle", a wear issue requiring an adjustment to the projector. To make this adjustment, unplug the projector, remove the lamp module and turn the projector upside down. Locate & remove the six T-15 TORX screws (or Phillips screws, depending on the generation of the projector). Gently pull off the bottom cover - be careful as the power cord is secured to both the bottom cover and the projector wiring. With the bottom cover open, locate the cycle contact near the center of the projector (see the diagram below for visual detail). When at rest (the projector on ), the clutch lever("J"-shaped wire) should be resting near the middle of the pad on the shaft assembly. With the projector unplugged(!), carefully bend ( so it doesn't break off!) the clutch lever slightly. Then plug in the projector, turn it on (be careful- 120volts exposed!) and cycle it a few times.Observe the position of the clutch lever to the pad. If it's OK, you're done.If not, unplug it & bend it a little more. Repeat as necessary.It usually takes 4 or 5 little adjustments to get it right. Jim

Slide projector is loading slides too fast

On an Ektagraphic III-A there is an internal adjustment you can make of the wire that captures the slide change mechanism after one revolution (or ONE slide change). Over time and usage that wire either breaks off, burns off or gets out of adjustment. Look at the attached diagram for more detail:

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 !!

I cannot get my projector to stop rotating the slides tray. No matter what setting the projector is on, it runs on "fan mode" and keeps rotating the tray. The Kodak Carousel 4400 that I have is...

This problem is caused by the cycle contact requiring an adjustment. Unplug the projector, remove the lamp module, turn the projector upside down & remove the bottom cover. Near the center of the projector is the Slide Change Mechanism. At the center of the mechanism is the Camstack. Refer to the illustration for the correct position of the clutch contact to the cycle pad. You will have to bend the clutch contact wire (GENTLY) a little bit, then plug in the projector & cycle it Forward a few times and check the position of the wire to the pad. This adjustment usually takes a trained hand a few times to get the position correct. If you don't want to tackle it, contact a factory-trained repair dealer for assistance.

Kodak carousel slide projector continuously advances

Your problem is caused by an out-of-adjustment cycle contact. Repair is possible if you are familiar with these machines or are very good technically. You need to adjust the contact wire's position on the contact pad. See the attached illustration for correct position. You achieve this position by 1. unplugging the projector & 2. Removing the lamp module. Remove the bottom cover by unscrewing the 6 T-15 TORX head screws. You should then be able to see the contact wire (a "J"-shaped uninsulated wire). Bend it VERY little and VERY carefully, then plug it in and cycle it a few times. Repeat these steps until you get the position shown in the illustration. Good Luck !jauburn_3.jpg

Slide drops down to veiw but immediatly pops back up. You see slide for one second. Any solution?

Your projector needs a cycle contact adjustment. It is "continuously cycling". Depending on how comfortable you are with the inside of a projector will determine whether or not you decide to tackle this yourself, or contact a factory-trained dealer.
Unplug the projector, remove the lamp module and turn the projector upside down. Remove the bottom cover (6 - T15 TORX screws), and pull the bottom cover off slowly from the handle edge first. At the center of the slide change mechanism there is a camstack. At the end of the camstack there is a PAD. You will also notice a "J"-shaped wire (clutch contact). When at rest (the projector powered up and "idling", the wire needs to rest just about at the middle of the pad. See my attached illustration. You will need to bend the wire GENTLY and a very little at a time, then plug in the projector (be careful - hazardous voltages!!) and cycle the projector a couple of times. Check the relationship of the wire to the pad again. Unplug and repeat bending process. Check again. It should take (on average) about 5 or 6 GENTLE bends to get the adjustment correct.

Automatic slide changer is stuck in "on" position - cannot manually advance slides - it is a Kodak projector. The projector keeps advancing the slides in rapid succession without the manual "forward"...

The problem is continuous cycle (like you don't know that already...). It indicates that an adjustment to the cycle contact is necessary. To open the projector, first unplug it and remove the lamp module from the rear of the projector. Turn the projector upside down. Remove the 6 - T15 TORX screws from the bottom (5 around the perimeter and one in the channel next to the cord wrap). CAREFULLY pull the bottom off (the power wires connect the bottom cover & top together!!). Once you have it open, leave the projector upside down, put on your safety glasses & plug the projector into the wall. At the center of the projector you should see a hub rotating about every second or so. Above it you should see a "J"-shaped wire. See the attached illustration.
You will have to, in repeated steps, unplug the projector, bend the "J"-shaped wire GENTLY & SLIGHTLY, plug the projector back in and cycle it a few times. Check for the position of the "J"-shaped wire to the pad, and GENTLY repeat until you achieve the position shown in the illustration.

Will not advance although nothing is stuck in the machine.

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! jauburn_8.jpg

Will not change slides forward/backward, remote focus ok,

Your problem is most likely caused by a broken wire under the control panel or a wire somewhere in the "cycle circuit" that is no longer connected. You should seek out a factory-trained repair dealer who has a schematic that can trace down your projector problem.
