Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies
My Kodak Ektagraphic AF-1 will not advance or reverse using either remote or buttons. When the buttons are pressed the courtesy light dims ever so slightly. I am using a stack loader with it. It was working great all night, until I reversed a frame or two. The select button works fine.
If the select button functions correctly, Chances are the direction lever in the mechanism is bound up or the Direction Lever Spring is broken. If the Spring is broken or the Direction Lever is bound up, the Index Lever will go out straight when the Advance / Reverse buttons are pushed - instead of moving out straight , then moving forward or reverse at a 45 degree angle.
The Slide Change mechanism needs to be re-built. The bad news is this projector was manufactured from 1976 to 1984. Kodak scrapped the repair parts in the early 1990's. Your best bet is to find a repair shop that has a projector that they can salvage parts for your projector from.... Good Luck !!

If there are no broken components of the slide change mechanism and it is only an adjustment problem, do the following:
1. Remove the bottom cover
2. At the front of the projector (near the elevation wheel) you will find (2) 1/4" head screws going through black rubber grommets. Loosen the screw slightly.
3. Next to the screws you will see a cutout in 2 pieces of metal that when looked at together, resemble a diamond shape.
4. With the projector on in FAN mode only (NO LAMP!), simultaneously press the reverse button on the side of the projector and with a flat-blade screwdriver inserted into the diamond-shaped slot, twist gently to move the plate the 2 screws go through up or down until you get cycling in reverse. If you go too far you will get buzzing, which will indicate that the solenoid plunger is bottomed out in the solenoid coil. Once you get acceptable reverse cycle, tighten the 2 screws gently and turn the projector right-side up. Verify the correct action in both forward & reverse cycle. Adjust further if necessary. If OK, tighten the 2 screws and re-install the bottom cover. You're done!

SOURCE: Slides won't advance or reverse
The AF-2 is suffering from old age! The problem you are experiencing is "continuous cycle", and is caused by the cycle contact either being bent or worn to the point it can't stop the cycle camstack at the end of a slide change. If you are familiar with projector repair, I can give you specific instructions. Otherwise, I suggest you locate an authorized repair dealer. Even though the projector is old, all the necessary parts are available from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! Jim
