Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies
Posted by Anonymous on
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

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!

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.

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.

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 !!

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.
