''shutter'' won't stay open when slide drops down

When I push the forward button, a slide drops down but the shutter only opens for about 1/2 sec and closes. Then the slide moves half way back up.

I put about 20 minutes into answering this but it disappeared because I forgot to sign in first! ARGH!

Before trying the solution below, try this first in case the problem is not too advanced: Run projector in fan only mode. Press and hold down the Select button for 1 or 2 seconds and repeat a dozen times. If that doesn't fix it, try the following.


Anyway, condensed version, am assuming this is older style with carrying handle at the front, beside the lens:

Cautions: If you are not comfortable operating projector with 120 volts of power applied, be sure to reassemble the bottom plate before testing. Also, secure, or remove and protect lenses and lamp.And when reassembling be certain not to pinch any wires.

Unplug projector. Remove bottom plate, look into the centre of the mechanism and you'll see a hole in the mechanism housing showing a (usually grey) plastic sleeve on the cam shaft, covered in black (may be brown) grease. Turn the fan gently so as not to dislodge its belt, while also gently pressing down the Select button on the side. The mecahnism cam shaft should move. Do this until you see a small hole (may be covered by grease) and a 1/8 to 1/4" bit of stiff metal straight spring sticking out. Relase the Select button, use the tube on a can of WD-40 to spray just a bit of WD-40 into the hole. You don't want to overspray it or it'll run out. If that ahppens, clean it up as well as possible with Q-tips. You really don't want it on lenses or rubber belts either!

Reassemble or not (see cautions above) run the projector in fan only (no light, or remove the lamp) and press and hold the Select button for a second or two. Repeat this 10-12 times. You can do this with projector upside down if you choose. see if this fixes it. If not, wait 1/2 hour for WD-40 to penetrate a bit more (it's loosening up dried out grease in the cluthc which affects the timing). If still not perfect, repeat the WD 40 application, again, not too much.

The bulb lights up but it does not drop the photo to view


Hi Faye,
There is a "dark shutter" that blocks the light that probably is not opening.
It can be adjusted, but requires some tools and a bit of patience.
The process to adjust the DARK SHUTTER is:-
[1] Remove for the LOWER HOUSING.

[2] Insert a thin SLIDE into the GATE MECHANISM; the DARK SHUTTER should open.
Hope this helps you and you have the slide projector working again soon.
Regards,
Michael

My projector will not show the slide.Everything else seems to be working.


I'm assuming the lamp is lit, the light is just not coming through the optics. You didn't specify the model, but most later manufactured Kodak projectors have a "dark shutter". This feature keeps the blinding light off the screen when you arrive at a spot in your slide tray without a slide in it. It senses a slide dropping into the slide gate, and pops the shutter open. Otherwise the shutter stays closed.
One of 2 things has happened:
1. The spring that "pops" the shutter open has fallen off.
2. The "dark shutter" latch needs adjusting.
You can find the Kodak Service Manuals that will give you instructions for adjustment and or replacing the spring at:

Good Luck!!

How to use the mc-dc2 how many buttons do i push to operate


There's only one button on the MC-DC2. Just plug it into the appropriate jack on the camera. You don't need to change any settings on the camera.
The button on the MC-DC2 now does exactly what the shutter release button on the camera does. The only exception is when the shutter speed is set to bulb. In this case the shutter remains open as long as the button is held down. There's a hold ring around the button on the remote; press the button and slide the ring in the direction of the arrow to hold the button down. Slide the ring in the other direction to close the shutter.

Push the top metal button all the way foward as if pushing the blade out to it's (farthest) 3rd setting. Then push foward and down one more time which locks the mechanism down. Push and hold the yellow side button as you insert the blade. When the blade locks in all you have to do is release the yellow button and return the top slide to it is fully retracted home. The blade is loaded

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.

Pentax ME SLR Camera


Push the small white button down and turn the select to B or Flash mode the shutter should fire at 1/60th sec. in flash mode. As long as you want in B mode. Turn select to A
put lens on and check shutter speed in finder. Rotate F stop on lens and bring shutter speed to over 1/100 sec. push shutter button, it should fire at the speed you selected.
If not check battery cap and contacts in bat. holder, clean with pencil eraser if needed. Be careful with contacts in holder.
If it still locks up remove lens and rotate to F/16 push metal pin in and check operation of diaphragm, it should be smooth and pin return quickly.
If the shutter still locks in auto that's about it---- no parts are available

Lens stuck out; camera won't stay on


I have the same problem. Its actually because the On/Off button got pushed in somehow and its stuck. At this time right now, im not sure how to make it unstuck, but sometimes it will stay on. But when you push on, since its being held down, its stuck that way and immediately turns off because its still being held down constantly. Maybe try using a thing needle to try and push it out?
