Kodak slide tray mechanism

The latch on my 140 slide tray came loose. I cannot picture how the piece fits and the spring attached. There are two components (two springs) One spring is fairly easy to grasp,but how the latch attached tothe tray and the proper position of the second spring fits.

The Carousel 140 Trays were manufactured as "one-timers" - - - that means (unlike the Ektagraphic 80 Slide Tray), there are no adjustments, no replacement parts, and are not designed for re-assembly.... I am sorry to have to tell you that. My recommendation would be to buy a replacement tray (don't worry - - they are cheap) from a dealer who still has 140 trays (try )
Good Luck!! Jim

SOURCE: I bought a used kodak

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.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: properly loading the slide tray

If the first slide is visable and consecutive slides are not, the "dark shutter" (a feature that prevents the eye-popping bright white screen when no slide is present) needs adjustment. A fairly easy adjustment for a factory-trained service dealer with the service manual and the correct tools.

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 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: I am unable to latch the slide tray into my 760H

I think I already answered this one, but it still appears in my question cue.
Make sure the locking ring (on the top of the tray) is on TIGHT on the slide tray. Turn the tray upside down. Rotate the metal plate until the arrow stamped into it lines up with the notch on the bottom of the plastic tray. That should solve your problem. Jim

Kodak 140 slide carousel trays jam

The 140 tray with older slides and an older projector is a gamble with slide jams every time!! Slides have a natural curve that gets bigger over time. In addition, as slides age, the corners will begin to de-laminate (aka: "dog-eared" slide). Because the slide slot in a 140-tray is SO NARROW, the least little deformation of the slide from normal will cause the slides not to drop. My recommendation, given the age of the projector, trays and slides, is to get rid of those 140 trays and stick with 80-slide trays. Good Luck !! 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

My kodak 600H projector tray will not move to the release position? any suggestions.

You may just have a slide jam (particularly common with older slides in 140-Slide Trays).
First of all, you need to get the tray removed. At the center of the tray is the hub, and an emergency tray release slot. Make sure the slide tray locking ring is in place and tight(!), then insert a quarter in the emergency tray release slot and turn, lifting the tray at the same time. One slide will probably fall out. Replace the slide in the tray with the same orientation as the other slides in the tray (markings, slide#, etc.). Then with the tray upside down (now you see why I told you to make sure the slide tray locking ring was in place and tight), rotate the metal bottom plate back to the "zero" position.
Once the tray is removed, cycle the projector 4 or 5 times, then re-insert the tray. If the problem persists, you may have warped slides (get them re-mounted or be sure to use 80-Slide Trays rather than 140 Slide Trays), or you could have a jammed slide change mechanism. And because we're talking about a Model 600H here, it may be cheaper to buy a used projector online than have it repaired. Good Luck !!

Just bought a kodak 650H slide projector and i put a tray with slides on the projector but it doesn't lock in or advance.

Chances are the projector you bought needs a slide change solenoid link or at the very least, an adjustment to the timing of the slide changing mechanism.

What is the correct carousel for a kodak 760 H projector?

A KODAK Carousel 760H is designed to be used with either KODAK 140 or KODAK 80 Slide Trays. The KODAK 80 Slide Tray has wider slide compartments, which tend to be more forgiving for older, slightly warped slides.

Model 760 H projector-- Carrousel advances, but slides do not

My guess is that your slides are in a 140-slide tray.
Over time, with repeated cycles of humidity & drying, slides warp slightly. The compartment width in a 140-slide tray is quite narrow, and it takes very little warping to make slides stick in their individual compartments. If you move the slides to a KODAK 80 Slide Tray you should be in much better shape.

I'm having a problem loading a tray onto my kodak carousel 4400 slide projector any solutions?

First, with the tray off the projector, cycle the projector several times in forward and then in reverse. Next, check to make sure the locking ring on the top on the slide tray is LOCKED ON TIGHT. Then turn the tray upside down. On a 140 Slide tray there is an index notch. On the metal plate there is a index hole. Gently release the metal spring of the tray latch and rotate the metal plate until the notch and hole line up. Now the tray should drop on the projector and index properly.

Can the case of the IBM 350 computer be opened without the latch?

No, the case cannot be opened without using the release latch (Button)

What I believe has transpired, is a situation that I ran into a few years ago, with a computer case that used a similar setup.

I'm afraid my solution won't sound very professional at first glance.

What transpired on the case in question that I was working on, is that the slide button for the latch had come loose, from the latch mechanism.

Come loose due to someone trying to forcibly open the case. They also bent 'Fingers' of the case, that holds the sliding latch mechanism in place.

I found the metal mechanism was made up of two parts, and a spring held the sliding part of the latch in the locked position.

Apparently someone had tried to access the case with the latch, and had no luck. Then they tried to use some sort of leverage device to force the case open, bending one of the two parts of the latch, and part of the case itself. ('Fingers')

The case has small metal 'Fingers' that hold the non-sliding part of the metal latch in place, and also the sliding part.

(Picture a small U shape, stamped into a flat piece of metal. The U shape is actually cut through the metal, with the top, or flat part not cut out.
Now bend the bottom of the U, out of the flat piece.
They sort of resemble 'Fingers')

These 'Fingers' are wrapped around the non-sliding part of the metal latch, and sliding part.
The keep the latch in place.

When bent out, they don't let the Sliding part of the latch, slide over all the way.

All the way, to release a hook at the end of the sliding part of the latch, out of a corresponding small rectangular hole in the computer case.

I had to use finesse, and a flat tip screwdriver. I had to insert the flat tip into the top edge of the panel, and slightly bend it out. (The top edge of the panel above the latch mechanism)

Then with the gap large enough, I slid the flat tip screwdriver down into the case, and proceeded to bend the 'Fingers' out further. When I bent two fingers on top far enough out, the latch mechanism was then loose enough to drop partially out.

I could then open the case. Once I saw how the makeup of the mechanism was made, I then proceeded to straighten the case back to where it was.

Straightened the parts of the metal latch, and reinstalled it into the cover panel, and re-bent the Fingers back into position.
Then I attached the spring, and adjusted the sliding latch to make sure it worked okay.

Sorry I was so lengthy, but after you have fixed your problem, I believe you'll find it is very hard to describe this latch, and how to fix a bent one.

I wish I could have just stated, 'Insert this tool here at this spot, and give it a click to the right'.

Plastic piece came loose inside printer

The parking mechanism front spring has a tendency to come off in the C4x family of printers. Re-attaching it is a fiddly task not covered in the service manual. The pictures show: a general shot of the parking mechanism from the front; a shot of the actuation lever, illustrating where the front spring attaches to it; a view into the empty parking mechanism compartment showing where the lug is to which the bottom end of the front sprint attaches; a suggested tool for re-attaching the front spring, made from a large paper clip.

Proceed as follows, using a torch where necessary: lift the parking mechanism out its holder; be careful not to detach the drain pipe. Using the tool, attach one end of50f32be.gif54a9806.gif88c5669.gif9145528.gif the spring to the lug at the bottom of the parking mechanism compartment. Remove the tool and leave the spring laying at the bottom with one end attached to the lug. Replace the parking mechanism in its holder, with the actuation lever in place. Now for the fiddly bit! Peer into the compartment to locate the free end of the spring and get the tool on it. Pull the spring until you can put the free end over the lug on the actuation lever. Remove the tool.
