GAF 503 slide projector stuck in reverse

Just testing this and found that after an initial run forwards part way into a magazine (5/6 slides), tried reverse with second button push - worked OK - but after repush to return to forward, no difference. The control button is obviously working the forward/reverse mechanism (usual click sound) but mechanism inside is not obeying command. Is it a simple fix?

SOURCE: 860H slide projector will not

The projector most likely needs the "link" that connects the Slide change solenoid and the Slide change mechanism. This "link" is plastic and gets brittle & cracks over time. It is deep inside the mechanism and usually requires an Authorized Service Dealer to make the repair.

SOURCE: Automatic slide changer is stuck in

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.
Good Luck !!jauburn_7.jpg

SOURCE: Projector works fine, but will not advance slides.

Try a different tray (preferably a Kodak 80-slide tray). If it works, then the problem is a tray problem. If it makes no difference, check the "SELECT" function. If that works, then your projector requires an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. If it does not work, remove the tray and push the "REVERSE" button 4 or 5 times (this will clear a mechanism jam if one has occurred). If you still have nothing, then chances are that the slide change mechanism drive belt is broken or stretched. try the diagnostic things I suggested. If they are no help, I'm sorry to say you need the help of a factory-trained repair dealer. Good Luck !!

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 !!

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

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.

Lift gate tray


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.

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 bought a used Elmo TRV-35H 35mm projector. The camera works fine, but the tray only moves in reverse when I press the forward or reverse button. And after moving through a few slides it then moves...


Remember, mains voltages exist within the projector and thus the unit MUST be disconnected from the supply line whilst carrying out any servicing.

The reported fault sounds like sluggish operation of the advance/reverse mechanism. Lubricants used in the past tend to age and dry out so that the mechanism doesn't function correctly. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT TO DO SO, remove the top of the unit and locate the slide mechanism. Carefully clean with cotton buds dipped in pure electronic cleaner and then re lubricate, using an oil dripper with the finest industrial sewing machine oil - emphasis is on a 'drip' of oil on the moving pivot points. Put the top back on and try again.

Problems with remote controllers are suually associated with tarnished contacts either in the hand unit or the projector. Once again, the contacts can be carefully cleaned and all should be well once more.

If you are using Kodak Carousel magazines, make sure you are using the correct magazine for your slides - cardboard or glass mounts. Don't mix slides in a magazine, as this can also cause problems.

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.
