No. The slide tray should rotate when the forward or reverse buttons are pushed. Slides are not required for correct actuation of the tray. Before attempting any adjustment, try a few different trays (it may be a tray issue!). A 140-slide tray will be much tougher to get correct movement from than with a 80-slide tray on an older slide projector.... The 140 tray pushes the interface specification between a tray & a projector to the max.

There is nothing wrong with your slide trays. Your projector needs an adjustment to the cycle contact assembly. The constant cycle mode is a dead-giveaway. You need to take the projector to an Authorized Repair Dealer for this adjustment. Should be relatively quick - - it takes longer to get the case apart than to make the repair!

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!

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.

Two steps.
1) Look down into the center of the carousel. There should be a round, flat silver knob with an elongated notch in it. Take a coin (US 5-cent piece or similar) and use it to turn the knob. This releases the catch on the metal plate under the projector. You should then be able to lift the carousel off. Be careful: some slides will fall out as the slot is not aligned with the carousel body properly once you do this.
2) Make sure the locking ring on top of the carousel is in place (or else take out all your slides. Turn the carousel over and gently rotate the metal plate covering the bottom of the carousel into position. You will hear/feel a "click" when it's in place.

The projector may have jammed because there are two slides stuck in the viewing slot--check for this before you put the carousel back on the projector. If it jams a lot the metal plate under the carousel may be bent.

First of all, if you have the remote that came with the projector, plug it in & try that. I suspect that it will not work, but it is worth a try. If it does work, you are a lucky person!
The problem you are experiencing is very common for a projector of that age. The cycle solenoid "link" is broken - or worse - the solenoid has an "open" circuit.This is a pretty complicated replacement and adjustment of the solenoid position that follows. You can purchase the parts required from www.micro-tools.com They also have instructions on their website. If you feel this repair is beyond what you want to get into, contact an authorized repair dealer for assistance. Good Luck !!

The carousel in my slide projector is stuck


I presume you are talking about a kodak projector. Look down into the center of the slide tray as it sits on the projector. There may be a small slot. Get a quarter, put it in the slot and turn it clockwise (?) a little, then lift the end of the tray furthest from the stuck slide. The tray should lift away. WITH THE RING ON, turn the tray over and rotate the metal bottom of the tray until it clicks, returning it to the "zero" position. Turn off the projector (if it's on) and retrieve the slide. Turn the projector on and hit the FWD button to get the arm situated correctly.

The KODAK Carousel 600 Projector has NO forward or reverse controls. To cycle the tray forward, LIGHTLY depress the SELECT bar. Reverse is accomplished by holding the SELECT bar down completely and rotating the tray by hand. Jim

How to remove a Croussel from Ektagraphic AF1


First of all, make sure the LOCKING RING is in position on the tray & locked! This will prevent all the slides from falling out when you remove the tray. Next, place a quarter (or a dime or a penny) in the SLOT in the HUB of the projector. Turn the coin to release the Emergency Latch Release and lift the tray off. Flip the tray upside down. Remove the jammed slide from the optical gate of the projector (inspect it for damage - "dog-eared" slide corners cause this kind of jam) and re-insert it in the slot of the tray from the underside (now facing you). Now rotate the tray until the pointing arrow and the notch on the bottom of the tray align. At this point the tray should be back in the "Zero" position and can be re-installed on the projector. I have attached copies of Kodak instructions for this, as well. Good Luck !! Jim4d786888-c152-4bd3-b086-29e6f8e29e37.jpg409ae3e8-80fd-44c8-820b-23fd94def009.jpg

Projector just jammed. cannot remove carousel or advance or reverse direction


This is a pretty common problem. First, make sure the locking ring on the top of the slide tray is on tight! Next (power off), place a quarter in the center hub of the projector and turn (while lifting the tray). If you have a newer projector it will have a plated slider that you can move with your fingertip, instead of the quarter. Lift the tray off the projector and turn it upside down (now you know why I said "make sure the locking ring on the slide try is on tight"!!). Remove the slide in the gate of the projector and return it to the slot visable through the plate on the bottom of the tray. Keeping the tray upside down, pull back on the short metal spring near the outer edge of the tray. Holding that spring in, rotate the metal plate until it gets to the "zero" location on the tray. Release the spring.
Now turn on the projector (without the tray) and cycle it 3 or 4 times in Reverse (that clears the jam). Replace the tray and you are good to go!!
By the way, closely inspect the corners of your slides. If they are de-laminating, or if the entire slide has a "bow" to it, you will continue to have problems with your 140 Slide Trays. They were designed to hold the absolute maximum number of slides, with very little margin for error. If your slides are like mine, you may be better off moving them to 80-Slide Trays (available cheap and in great numbers used on the internet.
If this has helped you, great!! If you have more questions, please ask!! Please take a minute and give FixYa some positive feedback if I have helped you!
Good Luck !!

First of all, remove the tray (use the emergency tray removal in the center hub of the projector). BE CAREFUL not to spill your slides, so before you remove the tray, make sure the tray ring is in position & tight, then when you remove the tray turn it upside down immediately and move the tray plate to the "zero" position. Remove any slides that might be in the gate of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle the projector 2 or 3 times in Reverse. This should clear a tray/slide jam. Good Luck !!

I bought a used kodak 650 carousel slide projector and i can't get the slide tray to load. Is it because it came with a 140 slide tray instead of an 80 slide tray?


The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse. If you are not seeing these levers move as described, then the chances of your projector needing a repair are likely. The good news: parts are still available. The bad news: You will have to find a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repairs for you.
