You didn't specify a model. That will change the detail-level solution... The most generic answer I can give you is that the slide advance mechanism is supposed to make one revolution and then be captured until it gets another signal (like from the FWD/REV buttons) to activate. The most likely cause of continuous cycle is that the wire that CAPTURES the slide advance mechanism is either broken off, burned off or out of adjustment. With more detail I can be more specific. Good Luck!! Jim

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 750H and 760H neither will advance carolsel without manual

Both of these models were manufactured by KODAK between 1971 and 1981 (roughly). My guess is that they both have the same failure: The "link" that connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism is broken. This "link" is plastic, and gets brittle & cracks over time. While parts are still available, this repair is best done by a factory-trained tech with the service manuals.

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: No manual or remote advance on kodak 35mm carosel

You didn't specify the model, but chances are that the cycling problem is caused by a broken "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, and gets brittle & cracks over time, rendering slide change non-functional. Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this is an involved repair requiring disassembly & a service manual - - best left to a factory-trained repair dealer.

Slide projector is loading slides too fast


On an Ektagraphic III-A there is an internal adjustment you can make of the wire that captures the slide change mechanism after one revolution (or ONE slide change). Over time and usage that wire either breaks off, burns off or gets out of adjustment. Look at the attached diagram for more detail:

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.

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

I just dragged this projector out of my grandma's basement. I have a new bulb and the projector appears to be in working condition except for the slide advance--the slides advance continuously. How...


There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance. (Some models will have a couple of pre-set advance settings between "manual" and "automatic." These usually advance the slides every three to ten seconds.) Push the tab to the manual setting--this will allow you to use the buttons towards the front of the machine to advance your slides.If moving the tab doesn't work it may be broken or jammed.

Slide tray does not advance and slide does not stay in proper position


If the slide tray does not advance or reverse, the slide will not go into the optical "gate" AND the "SELECT" function doesn't work, then chances are that you have a broken mechanism drive belt. The good news is there are all kinds of projector parts still available at: www.micro-tools.com The bad news is that unless you have a service manual and have been into a projector before, this is probably a repair best left to a factory-trained repair dealer.

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.

Kodak carousel slide projector continuously advances


Your problem is caused by an out-of-adjustment cycle contact. Repair is possible if you are familiar with these machines or are very good technically. You need to adjust the contact wire's position on the contact pad. See the attached illustration for correct position. You achieve this position by 1. unplugging the projector & 2. Removing the lamp module. Remove the bottom cover by unscrewing the 6 T-15 TORX head screws. You should then be able to see the contact wire (a "J"-shaped uninsulated wire). Bend it VERY little and VERY carefully, then plug it in and cycle it a few times. Repeat these steps until you get the position shown in the illustration. Good Luck !jauburn_3.jpg

Slide/tray advancement


http://www.fixya.com/support/t1564949-slides_advance_continusly

This link talks specifically about a Kodak slide projector. However the faulty mechanism in your Telex works in a similar way if you feel up to taking it apart. If you do, mark every screw and piece you remove, in a diagram. Though your symptom is sporadic advancing and the other link is continuous advancing, it's essentially the same cause, as sticking trigger mechanism in the clutch release.

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.

Slide projector won't stop auto-advancing


The problem is "continuous cycle", a fairly simple adjustment to the cycle switch lever. Remove the lamp module & unplug the projector. Turn it upside down. Remove the 6 T-15 TORX screws from the bottom cover. The lever is a "J" shaped wire near the center of the projector. Refer to the attached diagram for help locating. You will have to carefully(!) bend the wire down - a very little at a time. After each bend, plug the projector in and cycle it a few times. If it continues to cycle, shut it off - unplug it - and bend a little more (too much is bad: the wire can break or "trap" the cycle mechanism. You want to get it in the center of the pad, as the picture illustrates. Good Luck !!
