The link contains the service manual for your unit. These units are repairable. The plastic nylon parts are usually what requires replacement. Parts are readily available. If you elect to do DIY I suggest you take many pictures and notes to aid in reassembly. They are not particularity difficult to repair, but it is very easy to lose your way trying to re-assemble.

They are not intuitive in the operation using lots of little cams and levers to achieve the functions.

Documentation is critical. The most difficult is the timing adjustments. Study the assembly and cycle the unit with covers removed to observe the basic function.

Keep the screws/parts marking their location and grouped

Replacement of the failed worm gear is one of the least difficult to achieve, Parts available on e-bay

Careful not to to touch the bulb or lens.

If you need to remove the lenses document the stack careful for reassembly

I have used lithium grease during reassembly.

Hope This helps?

Testimonial: "Thank you jhnolson. The part you've pictured is exactly what I need. However, I'm still searching for specific instructions/details for disassembling only that which is needed to replace this gear-shaft. The service manual is quite unclear and poorly illustrated. Any additional help - much appreciated! -Don"

Fix focusing on ektagraphic remote control


Ektagraphic III A did not have remote focus. Someone has probably substituted a remote from a higher functioning model on this projector. The forward / reverse functions on the supplied remote will continue to function correctly, but the focus buttons will not.
Good Luck !! Jim

Fix remote focus on ektagraphic projector


The problem you describe on your Ektagraphic ATS could be caused by a couple of things:
1> You have the incorrect remote. You need the correct remote for the remote focus over-ride to function. Just because the "Focus" button is on the remote, doesn't mean you have the correct remote control. The remote control could be broken, as well.
2> You could have a broken or mis-adjusted focus over-ride switch inside the projector. To rectify this you may need special tools and/or parts ( I'm not sure they are still available). To check this, contact: www.micro-tools.com
Micro-Tools may be able to provide you with instructions to make the repair, as well as the parts. Good Luck!! Jim

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:

Kodak 760h autofocus does not function


Check with the dealer who is selling you the part, to see if they can provide you with the required pages for disassembly, repair & re-assembly from the Kodak Service Manual. You should be aware that in some cases when this repair is made, it requires the technician to re-calibrate the auto-focus system. To do that, you will need 2 special tools (a "Target Slide" and a "Range Slide"), that were manufactured by Kodak for use on the assembly line and by their authorized warranty repair dealers. You MAY need those, as well.
As you can imagine, all this can begin to get expensive (if you can still get the special tools).... It may be more economical to try to locate another used projector on the internet... Here are 2 dealers I can recommend: For parts & tools - www.micro-tools.com
For used projectors - www.vinevalleyimaging.com

Good Luck!! Jim

Kodak 5200 focus slide not working


The auto-focus system requires adjustment / set-up with special tools if the auto-focus no longer functions correctly. Before ordering the tools from: www.micro-tools.com
check a couple of things:
1. Is the "Auto-Focus on-off Switch" in the "ON" position?
2. Put a slide that is as dark as possible in the slide gate. Power on, lamp on. Look down into the gate, on the front side of the slide. You should see a "S"-shaped light near the center of the slide.
If you have validated both of the conditions above, then I would contact my friends at micro-tools for the special tools. They should be able to provide you with adjustment instructions.
Good Luck !! Jim

Shutter stuck on Ektagrahpic III projector


First of all, the shutter will only open IF there is a slide in the gate. Assuming there is a slide in the gate, there are 2 things that could be preventing the shutter from opening:
1. Most likely - the shutter is spring-loaded. If the spring unhooks or is missing, the shutter will not open.
2. There is an adjustment that needs to be made after the spring is replaced or re-hooked (or just is out of adjustment. Refer to the Kodak Ektagraphic Service Manual @ the Kodak web site: http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/slideProj/manual/ektagraphic_sm.pdf

Just purchased a Kodak Ektagraphic AF1 & neither manual/auto focus or slide advance work. My other Kodak Ektagraphic AF had both auto & manual advance broken as well. Used it for many years. Was...


The model AF-1 did not have remote focus feature. It does have the Auto-Focus feature. The auto-focus adjustment is a pretty "fine-tune" adjustment that requires a factory alignment tool & a trained hand.
Your model AF is quite old, and probably requires replacement of the "link" that connects the slide change solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The problem is the plastic the "link" was made of gets brittle over the years and cracks, rendering slide change non-functional.
Both problems are easily remedied by a qualified repair dealer with the tools, training and parts.

I'm having trouble changing the bulb in a Kodak Ektagraphic AF-1 slide projector. The bulb doesn't fit easily into the housing and I don't want to force it.


First of all, verify you are using the correct lamp: it should be a 120volt, 300watt, ANSI Code "ELH" lamp. (This may seem too basic, but you'd be surprised at the number of people who try the incorrect lamp).
If the lamp is correct and you can not insert it by pushing the base of the lamp into the terminal connector relatively easily, then chances are you have a build-up of material on one or both of the lamp contacts caused by arcing (arcing is caused by loose lamp terminal contacts). If this is the case, then you need to replace the lamp terminal assembly (the ceramic-like white piece the lamp terminals should slide into). You should still be able to buy a lamp terminal assembly for your Ektagraphic AF-1 from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !!
