Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I was hoping to lend a Kodak carousel 760H projector to a friend, the projector will advance & reverse when pushing forward button, BUT it won't pause each slide long enough to view it. I am puzzled. I am not sure it's easy to fix or should just be trashed. please help. thanks!
If the slides are advancing, then the problem is NOT the solenoid link because if that was broken, the slides would not advance. Your problem could be: 1) the timer switch that automatically changes slides (if your projector has that feature) may be set on, 2) the advance button gets stuck when you press it, causing the slides to keep changing. You should be able to fix that by opening the case and freeing the button; 3) the drive pawl that stops the rotation of the cam assembly after one rotation. You may need to lubricate that piece.

Dirt or dust accumulation can retard the gear mechanism. If you get Canned Air at WalMart, blow out all open areas and see if you can dislodge the material collected inside.

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.

Chances are that your projector has a broken solenoid "link". This "Link" connects the slide change solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Over time this part becomes brittle & cracks, rendering the slide change non-functional. A pretty easy fix for an authorized repair dealer.

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.

This is a common problem with older projectors like this. There is a "link" that connects the slide cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is plastic and gets brittle & cracks with age, rendering cycling non-functional. this is a difficult repair, but parts are still available. I recommend you contact an factory-trained repair dealer to get your projectors repaired.

Based on your description & what I know about those projectors, I suspect the solenoid "link" has broken. The "link" connects the cycle solenoid with the slide change mechanism. Over time, this plastic "link" gets hard, brittle and cracks, rendering slide change non-functional. The good news is there are still parts around to fix your projector & get another 20 years out of it. You should contact a factory-trained repair dealer to affect the repairs. Good Luck !!
