SOURCE: Cannot remove lamp assembly from Sharp XR-10X projector

Carefully try using a flat head screw driver on the middle plastic piece. make sure it is off...

Or try coming at it from the other side after taking the top of the machine off you can unscrew 3 screws and loosen whatever might be blocking it

The slides keep advancing very quickly the slide advance timer lever does nothing. It seems to be stuck at top speed.

You are describing "continuous cycle", a wear issue requiring an adjustment to the projector. To make this adjustment, unplug the projector, remove the lamp module and turn the projector upside down. Locate & remove the six T-15 TORX screws (or Phillips screws, depending on the generation of the projector). Gently pull off the bottom cover - be careful as the power cord is secured to both the bottom cover and the projector wiring. With the bottom cover open, locate the cycle contact near the center of the projector (see the diagram below for visual detail). When at rest (the projector on ), the clutch lever("J"-shaped wire) should be resting near the middle of the pad on the shaft assembly. With the projector unplugged(!), carefully bend ( so it doesn't break off!) the clutch lever slightly. Then plug in the projector, turn it on (be careful- 120volts exposed!) and cycle it a few times.Observe the position of the clutch lever to the pad. If it's OK, you're done.If not, unplug it & bend it a little more. Repeat as necessary.It usually takes 4 or 5 little adjustments to get it right. Jim

A slide got stuck in the projector, and when I took it out the projector just died. No power. Any ideas about what's happened? Thanks

If this is a Kodak Slide Projector, there are 2 thermal fuses (1 is in the motor and NOT replaceable and 1 is in the area of the lamp). Almost ALL Kodak projectors had 2 thermal fuses as described. You need to determine the model, as that will determine which fuse or motor assembly you will have to buy & install to fix your projector. If its a Kodak, let me know the model and I can help you further! You can buy parts for Kodak projectors at:
Good Luck! Jim

How to remove a carousel stuck on a Kodak Carousel projector

No problem! FIRST, make sure the locking ring is in place and tight on the top of the tray. Next, locate the center hub (the hole in the center of the tray fits over it). In the center of the hub you will see either a "coin slot" or a small metal lever. Push the lever in the direction it will move and at the same time lift the tray off the projector. If you have a "coin slot), use a quarter to turn the coin slot until the tray is released. Turn the tray upside down, replace any slides that may have left the tray when it became stuck, and rotate the bottom metal plate until it locks in the locating slot. Turn on the projector and cycle it a few times IN REVERSE without a tray on it. this unlocks the jam in the projector. You should be good to go now!! Good Luck !! Jim

The carousel displays the slide but does not pause at a slide. It continues to cycle to the next slide within seconds. Why?

You have a problem known as "continuous cycle". The cycle contact assembly needs adjustment. Remove the slide tray, unplug the projector, remove the lamp module. Turn the projector upside down. There are 6 screws (either TORX T-15 or Phillips Head) that secure the bottom cover - - make sure you remove all 6! Carefully pry the bottom cover from the top housing (some projectors take true grit to get open!!). Once open, locate the cycle contact assembly, near the center of the projector. The illustration below should show you the correct position of the contact to the pad. Bend carefully, and a very little at a time. Then, with your safety glasses ON, plug the projector in and try cycling it in Forward. If it continues to cycle, repeat the adjustment. Parts are brittle, so bend carefully!! Let me know if you need more help!!! Jim

My kodak carousel 5600 slide projector wont stop advancing unless i unplug it

You are experiencing a fairly common problem called continuous cycling. It is caused by use or mis-adjustment.
If you feel comfortable with a electro-mechanical adjustment, take a look at the attached picture for the correct alignment of the cycle contacts. The positioning is critical for correct operation.

Turn the projector upside down (unplugged), and remove the bottom screws. Then carefully remove the bottom cover. The cycle contact assembly will be in the center of the projector.
If you need help, contact a authorized repair dealer. Good Luck!!

My kodak 600H projector tray will not move to the release position? any suggestions.

You may just have a slide jam (particularly common with older slides in 140-Slide Trays).
First of all, you need to get the tray removed. At the center of the tray is the hub, and an emergency tray release slot. Make sure the slide tray locking ring is in place and tight(!), then insert a quarter in the emergency tray release slot and turn, lifting the tray at the same time. One slide will probably fall out. Replace the slide in the tray with the same orientation as the other slides in the tray (markings, slide#, etc.). Then with the tray upside down (now you see why I told you to make sure the slide tray locking ring was in place and tight), rotate the metal bottom plate back to the "zero" position.
Once the tray is removed, cycle the projector 4 or 5 times, then re-insert the tray. If the problem persists, you may have warped slides (get them re-mounted or be sure to use 80-Slide Trays rather than 140 Slide Trays), or you could have a jammed slide change mechanism. And because we're talking about a Model 600H here, it may be cheaper to buy a used projector online than have it repaired. Good Luck !!

I cannot remove the lens on my 5600 kodak carousel. it will not move so i cannot focus.

The lens has a lateral gear track along the side of it. It must be inserted into the projector so the gear on the lens meshes with the gear in the projector. When a lens is stuck in the projector and won't move it usually means the lens was inserted at an orientation other than what I just described. When that happens, the gear track on the side of the lens jams into the metal cage the lens fits into, the metal cuts into the plastic of the gear track and the lens is stuck! It takes a very gentle - and very strong - hand to get the lens out. Special attention should be taken NOT to damage the metal cage that hold the lens or the plastic rails within the cage that support the lens when attempting removal!!

Automatic slide changer is stuck in "on" position - cannot manually advance slides - it is a Kodak projector. The projector keeps advancing the slides in rapid succession without the manual "forward"...

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
