Need to make it advance automatically

Need to make a Carousel 4600 advance automatically. It fairly new, only has forward and reverse on remote. On the face(next to handle) there are switches for forward+reverse and POWER(off,fan,low,high). No automatic functions visible. Any DIY solutions, hardware store remedies, external timer switches available? Thanks!

Sure! Not only did Kodak sell an external automatic timer that plugs into the remote socket, a number of other companies had them as well. If you can't find one searching online for "Kodak slide projector plug-in timer", try: Good Luck !

Slides will not advamce when you push lever. It is 50 yrs old.

The KODAK Carousel 4600 was manufactured from 1981 to 2004. If the tray won't advance with the push button on the projector, but will reverse, then it is a contact problem under the handle. If it doesn't cycle in forward OR reverse, but the "SELECT" feature does work, then there is a problem with the cycle (orange) wiring or the slide-change mechanism requires an adjustment. If forward, reverse and select ALL don't work, chances are the low-voltage side of the power motor is no longer providing the required voltage. An authorized repair dealer can help you sort this out.

AIREQUIPT 1135 - focus works but can't get the auto slide to work

If the slide tray doesn't advance or reverse using the on-board or remote control buttons, chances are that: 1. You have a broken mechanism drive belt. 2. You have a jammed slide change mechanism module or 3. The mechanism trip contact is trapped behind its mating contact on the mechanism camshaft.
All of these problems require service documentation & special tools. My recommendation is to find an Authorized Repair Dealer.

Will Not advance or go back with remote

If you have another Slide Tray (preferably an 80-slide tray), try that. If it exhibits the same failure with another tray, then you have one of 2 problems: either a mechanical problem that is preventing the direction lever to advance or reverse the tray; OR you have an electrical problem - the low voltage that controls the advance circuitry is either too low or not present. Either way, you need an KODAK Authorized Repair Dealer to help you sort this out.

Problems with using a 140 carousel on a Kodak 4600

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!

Tray will not advance

The problem you describe is most likely a broken spring on the lever that moves the tray forward or reverse. The repair requires dis-assembly of the projector and the slide change mechanism and adjustment after re-assembly. I recommend you contact a factory trained repair dealer to make the repair.

Sometimes stop advancing. sometimes keep advancing 5 to 8 slides.

the mechanism needs cleaning. it is an almost purely mechanical device and needs greasing. the old grease gets hot and dusty and starts to get sticky. when this happens, the moving parts tend not to move. the mechanism needs to come out for a cleaning and regreasing.

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse

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.

Slide projector won't stop auto-advancing

The problem is "continuous cycle", a fairly simple adjustment to the cycle switch lever. Remove the lamp module & unplug the projector. Turn it upside down. Remove the 6 T-15 TORX screws from the bottom cover. The lever is a "J" shaped wire near the center of the projector. Refer to the attached diagram for help locating. You will have to carefully(!) bend the wire down - a very little at a time. After each bend, plug the projector in and cycle it a few times. If it continues to cycle, shut it off - unplug it - and bend a little more (too much is bad: the wire can break or "trap" the cycle mechanism. You want to get it in the center of the pad, as the picture illustrates. Good Luck !!

No reverse

Your unit could have several problems. First you need to remove the bottom of the unit. Turn it upside down and unwind the power cord from the storage area. Remove the 6 star screws. Remove the bottom cover. Now you can access the cycle solenoid and lever. From this point on you will need to be very careful. Plug the unit in. Turn on and depress the forward button. Observe the cycle lever and how it works. It could be out of adjustment and not pulling the mechanism far enough in the reverse mode. If that is the case adjust the solenoid location so the lever pulls the mechanism further in reverse mode. If adjustment is not the problem check for dried grease on the cycle cam. Clean all the grease off with an electrical degreaser (do the adjustments and the degreasing with the power disconnected). The unit uses special grease (high temp) which comes from Kodak. You should be able to try it without grease to see if the problem is solved. If it is then you will need to get some grease part #TL2730. If you do not feel confident doing any of the procedures you will need to find a shop that can work on these units. Most people are not familiar with them as they are fairly old. Cost should not exceed $50 US. Good luck.
