    two slides are stuck in one slot. :(

  • Carolyn Dec 18, 2007

    Thanks for your quick response.
    Did my reply come through? I atempted to add a picture to show there does not seem to be a release latch.I've turned it upside down and tapped it but no luck.
    Kodak web site manual says I need to remove the tray, but how?

    No, it will not rotate. The slides are stuck far down to prevent movement. Something needs to release to allow removal, turning and allignment. Clicker

    Two slides stuck fast in a Kodak etagraphic IIIa slide projector. How can I release the tray to clear the gate? See photos & previous suggestions offered.
    Thanks,

    It does seem like a release latch, but it will not move and is very small and has no leverage. I tried to gently move it with a screw driver but that did not work. I did not want to break it off. The very center part (the round circle) is concave not convex as the picture looks.
    Thanks for trying.

    Good thought. I tried the tweezers and a dental pick from a dentist friend, but no luck. The slides are old irreplacable family slides that are more valuable than the projector so I don't want to ruin them.
    Thanks for trying.

I HAVE AN E2 AND IT LOOKS VERY SIMILAR.
IN THE ENLARGED PHOTO YOU WILL SEE WHAT APPEARS AS A SCREW HEAD IF YOU TURN THAT SLIGHTLY WITH A SCREWDRIVER IT WILL RETRACT THE PINS YOU SEE IN THE 12 AND 8 OCLOCK POSITION. WHILE HOLDING THE SCREWDRIVER WITH THE PINS RETRACTED YOU THEN CAREFULLY LIFT THE CAROUSEL TRAY FROM THE SIDE OPPOSITE FROM THE ENGAGED STUCK SLIDE.......
....YOU CAN THEN RETRIEVE YOUR STUCK SLIDE...
....OPERATE THE PROJECTOR WITHOUT A TRAY OR SLIDE TO RESET THE MECHANISM...
......AFTER REMOVAL YOU MUST REALIGN THE BOTTOM CAROUSEL TRAY PLATE BY RETRACTING THE SPRING CLIP NEAR THE SLIDE SLOT AND ROTATE THE PLATE UNTIL THE ENGRAVED ARROW LINES UP WITH THE DETENT. (THESE INSTUCTIONS ARE ETCHED ON THE BOTTOM OF MOST CAROUSEL TRAYS.....THE DETENT IS OPPOSITE THE INDEX NOTCH WHICH IS USED TO MOUNT THE TRAY TO THE PROJECTOR...
I HOPE THIS HELPS. I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF A TREASURED SLIDE.

The thing you zoomed upon in your second photo seems like the release latch, try sliding it in the direction indicated in this picture:

Is it possible to perhaps gently extract them with a pair of tweezers? Maybe jiggle the transport a bit while pulling if they seem tight.

    your photo is too small to make out any detail. Do you think you could post a larger photo, specifically of the center hub area?

  • Mitch
    Mitch Dec 19, 2007

    Ok, it looks like the hub can be rotated a few degrees (as in my repost of your photo below) which will align the locking tab and the release channel. The platter should then lift off.

  • Mitch
    Mitch Jan 13, 2008

    Is there any chance of extracting them using tweezers or by hooking them with a dental pick? It may ruin the slides but save the player.

How do I free up a frozen outboard shifter


Hi Rick:
Don't know what unit you are dealing with, but stuck in my memory is the way the old Merc used to work.
There was a rod that rotated, and the shift mechanism slid into a slot. We only tilted removed the bottom end with the shifter in the forward position.
You may need to drop the bottom end to allow the shifter to be placed in the correct position.
I'm hoping that you are using the term "frozen" to describe "blocked", as another total PITA can happen when portions of the assembly become corroded. Loosening them up requires tha delicate balance of heat, penetrating oil, and brute force. Bearing in mind you don't want to set it on fire or break it.
I'd try dropping the bottom end, engage it in forward, place the shifter in forward, and carefully slide the bottom end back on.
Hope this helps.
cheers

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

2004 gmc envoy shifter stuck key wont release


First i would check your brake switch it works a locking mechanism right along side your gear shifter which locks the gearshift in place. also look for a slot sometimes there is a slot made for you to slide your key into to release the shifter and allow you to move it manually. it will be on top somewhere by your shifter identification indicator PRND321 if the brake switch is good remove the PRD321 cover and look for the lock on the right hand side at the base of the shifter this may need replacing. thanks for using Fix Ya

My Kodak Carousel 650H has a stuck slide and the tray won't move. The stuck slide is lined up with the "gate index." I tried releasing the tray but only one side of the tray releases. The...


Two steps.
1) Look down into the center of the carousel. There should be a round, flat silver knob with an elongated notch in it. Take a coin (US 5-cent piece or similar) and use it to turn the knob. This releases the catch on the metal plate under the projector. You should then be able to lift the carousel off. Be careful: some slides will fall out as the slot is not aligned with the carousel body properly once you do this.
2) Make sure the locking ring on top of the carousel is in place (or else take out all your slides. Turn the carousel over and gently rotate the metal plate covering the bottom of the carousel into position. You will hear/feel a "click" when it's in place.

The projector may have jammed because there are two slides stuck in the viewing slot--check for this before you put the carousel back on the projector. If it jams a lot the metal plate under the carousel may be bent.

Puzzle No. 120 Tap the open manhole above from the Sewers below.
Get the Ball Out! 3: Slide the bottom-right blue block over to the right and drop that lower purple block in the slot with the hole. Now, drop the big yellow block down.

Trying to replace alternator on 2003 elantra


After you have disconnected the alternator. You can remove it through the bottom of the car. First you need to unscrew 2 bolts above wheel well that holds the bracket with the shock absorber and coil spring. After the assembly is dropped, you can sway the drive shaft forward and backward. Moving the drive shaft forward will allow you to work the alternator out. Good Luck, CM

Problem


Hi Dale, I had answered your last post, but will copy this one to you as well: The problem is that there is a small, less than 1 cm rectangular magnet, embedded in the slide cover just to the right side of the "HP" logo and above the "M22" marking, the magnet activates a metallic reed switch on the circuit board when the slide is move to the right to "turn on" the camera and take pictures also exposing the lens. When the slide is moved to the left, the reed switch contacts are off. This would be an easy fix for a camera shop (as long as you tell them what the problem is) and they would not be able to overcharge you with the knowledge you now have... This is a great camera, and would be well worth the fix. Best regards, and let me know the results. nightdiver
