Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies

Kodak 650H projector - will cycle when the button is pushed to advance, but doesn't stop when the shutter is open. Rather it seems to keep moving until the shutter is in the closed position. The slides move in and out of the tray as expected. I have taken the bottom of the projector off and observed it at lenght, but can't see what is going on. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a timing problem to me.... There is an adjustment you can make, but it's a "trial & error" fix: you have to make an adjustment one way or the other in the camstack, and then see if it's worse or better (relative to a correct slide cycle). This adjustment is made with the projector upside-down with the bottom cover removed. Check out the attached picture for more detail on where & how to make the adjustment.

SOURCE: Kodak Carousel 600 Projector - mechanism stops with slide out

Open the back up and spray just a LITTLE bit of WD-40 into the cavity where the bit of spring emerges from the grease covered cam shaft. This will loosen up the grease that has dried up. It may take up to half an hour to work on the grease. If things are improved but not perfect, repeat. If any WD-40 spills out, mop it up with Q-tips and especially avoid the rubber belt.

Please do NOT advance things manually ans especially don't pry apart any of the plastic or metal cams on the cam shaft in an effort to correct the timing. You will put it out of waht and it will take a whack of time and/or an expert to get it back in whack!

SOURCE: Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse

Yeah. I like the $15 fix better. Go to Ebay and search for "Kodak Carousel Projector Advance Repair Kit". Before you purchase you can diagnose, and it comes with detailed instructions. The same guy also has a kits for other common problems, as well as the "tune up kit". Or you can buy the Solenoid Link, directly and try it without detailed instructions.

SOURCE: Kodak 650H projector - won't advance. Hadn't used

The wire is probably from the circuit board or the motor. The location of the wire may vary depending on the age of the projector.

But the problem you have sound like a broken solenoid "Link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the cycle lever in the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic and over time gets brittle & cracks. Once this happens, you will hear the noise of the cycle solenoid engaging (click), but nothing will happen. The good news is parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com). This is not an easy repair, and I would recommend contacting a factory-trained repair dealer.

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

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.

My Kodak 650H slide projector carousel won't advance?


Chances are what you need is a new cycle solenoid LINK. They can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com They should have instructions to help you install the new part, as well. Good Luck!!

Kodak carousel 650h will not advance or go back. Not mechanically jammed. Doesn't respond to buttons either on main housing or from remote. Select button, fan and lamp all ok.


If the select button functions correctly, then it sounds like you have a wire broken or a wire nut that holds a bundle of wires together has fallen off. If it was the solenoid link, then the Select function would not work. After removing the bottom cover, look for the orange wires, That is the cycle circuit. Look for a broken or unattached orange wire from the side button and the remote receptacle.
The other possibility is that the direction lever is stuck, bound up or the direction lever spring is broken. The attached image of the top plate of the slide change mechanism will show you the end of the direction lever. It should move freely, up & down on its center pivot. You should see a small, wire spring, about 2-3 inches long on the lever. If the spring is not there, or the lever does not move freely, that may be the cause of no forward or reverse.

On our Kodak 650 the remote will not advance the slides


Don, If the remote doesn't work & the projector cycle buttons do, then the problem is your remote. If neither the remote or side buttons work, then it is the LINK that connects the cycle solenoid the the cycle lever. Parts are still available from: www.micro-tools.com 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.

MODEL 760h WILL NO LONGER ADVANCE SLIDES


The KODAK Carousel 760H was manufactured approximately between 1971 & 1981.
The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". This "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Repair parts are still available, but this is a repair best left to a factory-trained technician. Contact an Authorized Repair Dealer.

Have a Kodak 650H projector Little black door does not open and let light come through


There is supposed to be a spring on the shutter that snaps it open when a slide is in the gate. It sounds like that spring is either broken, unhooked or missing.

Projector broke


Given the age of the projector, chances are the cause of the problem is a broken "Link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, and over time it gets brittle & cracks, rendering slide change non-functional. Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this is an involved repair that requires dis-assembly & a service manual - - best left to a factory-trained repair dealer.
