Kodak carousel 760h projector

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.

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 Projector 760H. Carousel won't

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.

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.

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.

SOURCE: I have a very old Kodak 760H slide projector. I

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 !!

The problem you describe is a timing issue. Because the 760H is so old (about 45 years old), parts availability may be slim to none.... You may be dollars ahead to buy a working projector off the internet.... Try: www.vinevalleyimaging.com

The problem is a plastic "link" that connects a solenoid to the advance mechanism. It gets brittle with age & cracks, yeilding the problem you have. You need to have the "link" replaced.

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.

Hi,
The kodak 760H needs occasional cleaning and lubrication of the mechanism. The grease gets gummy and sometimes siezes the motor as well. Take to service center to get it cleaned properly .

Hope this helps .

the kodak projectors need occasional cleaning and lubrication of the mechanism. the grease gets gummy and sometimes siezes the moter as well. take it in to a shop for a good cleaning or, if you're mechanically inclined, you could do it yourself. just remember which screws go where.

My Kodak 760H Carousel projector does not advance


do you hear any sounds when you press the button? if not, the button may be malfunctioning. if it doesn't make a sound or movement in reverse either, there is a bad connection between the controls and the solenoids. if it does try to advance and not move the carousel, it's a mechanical problem in the mechanism. usually due to the grease getting sticky from heat and age. take it in for a good cleaning and an adjustment. there are a few cams in there that wear out after a while, too.

Bought a 760H to show some old sllides, but the tray does not advance. Is this something that can be fixed? Everything else works fine.


In a word - yes. Most anything on a Kodak Slide Projector can be fixed.
If your Carousel 760H will cycle in Reverse but not Forward, then it's an adjustment of the cycle solenoid. If the projector will not cycle slide forward ort reverse, then it is probably the cycle solenoid "Link". The "Link" connects the plunger of the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The good news: parts are available (www.micro-tools.com). You will need to seek out a factory-trained dealer to make either one of these repairs for you.

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


What's happened is what happens to all that style eventually. There is a small nylon link that has aged and broken in the heart of the mechanism. A very skilled amateur can repair this but it may take a professional. If you are in the USA, start at http://www.kodakparts.com/Pre_1981.html or http://www.fargo-ent.com/kodak.html if you want to try it yourself. It's the same company, basically. If youa re in Canada, go to Doug Banks http://www.photographicrepairs.com/

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.
