Can i convert to a dvd i have a trv-35h elmo

You can very easily. You may use the S-VHS output on your Elmo ( a 4-pin DIN socket on the rear) going into the S-VHS input on your DVD player. You will need an S-VHS cord. Very cheap at Radio Shack or on Ebay. This gives the best quality. Our you can use the more familiar RCA composite video output (yellow socket) from the Elmo into the composite or auxiliary input on the DVD recorder.Be sure you have selected the proper input on your DVD recorder. Use a TV set as a monitor so you can see what you are recording.When I convert slides to DVD, I do a test run through the carousel to be sure the slides are all facing the right way, not upside down or backward.I set my Elmo timer on 5 seconds and let the carousel advance automatically. You may want to zoom in or color correct as you convert. In that case, pause your DVD recorder between slides, make your adjustments, then resume recording. This is called assembly editing. It works very smoothly and you get a better show,

I bought a used Elmo TRV-35H 35mm projector. The camera works fine, but the tray only moves in reverse when I press the forward or reverse button. And after moving through a few slides it then moves...

Remember, mains voltages exist within the projector and thus the unit MUST be disconnected from the supply line whilst carrying out any servicing.

The reported fault sounds like sluggish operation of the advance/reverse mechanism. Lubricants used in the past tend to age and dry out so that the mechanism doesn't function correctly. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT TO DO SO, remove the top of the unit and locate the slide mechanism. Carefully clean with cotton buds dipped in pure electronic cleaner and then re lubricate, using an oil dripper with the finest industrial sewing machine oil - emphasis is on a 'drip' of oil on the moving pivot points. Put the top back on and try again.

Problems with remote controllers are suually associated with tarnished contacts either in the hand unit or the projector. Once again, the contacts can be carefully cleaned and all should be well once more.

If you are using Kodak Carousel magazines, make sure you are using the correct magazine for your slides - cardboard or glass mounts. Don't mix slides in a magazine, as this can also cause problems.

I bouht an old Elmo but the lens seems to be missing. How does this projector project anyway What sort of lens system? Thanks to whoever answers

The TRV-35 series are not slide projectors in the normal sense. There isn't a projection lens to enable an image to be projected on a wall or cine screen. The unit is a digital convertor for producing an image via a TV or PC.

What size tray doe the Elmo TRV-35H use? What mfg is comparable?

It uses a standard 80 slide Kodak Carousel or comparable tray. Transvue works the best. Sometimes I can coax the Elmo to use a 140 slide tray, but the slides sometimes jam.
