Re: new lamp


This link tells you the lamp type you can use. EXY, EXR or FHS. has the FHS for around $10.00. Seems like a good price for the lamp. Other suppliers range from $8 to $25.

Lamp not working

The model of projector determines the correct lamp required. If a new lamp does not illuminate, there are 3 or 4 possibilities:
1. The Lamp Thermal Fuse is open (non-functional).
2. The Power Switch is non-functional.
3. The Lamp Socket is defective.
4. The new lamp is non-functional (burned out).
I hope this helps!!

Buy new bulb

Search for the 3-alpha ANSI code that is on the lamp online. If you can't read it, or don't have the user guide to identify the correct lamp, try: or
Both are good sources for all kinds of lamps, and they usually have reference guides that will allow you to identify the exact lamp you need for your projector! Good Luck !!

Got projector out after several years of non use. Lamp would not light. We purchased a new bulb and installed it. Still doesn't work. Fan runs and all, but bulb will not light.

Check the internal power and lamp fuse. Sometimes, when a projector is stored, an area of corrosion develops around the lamp pins and lamp holder. If you carefully clean both the holder and the pins on the original lamp you may find it works OK!

Kodak 750h slide projector; brand new bulb, but it won't turn on/light up? Could it be the lamp socket? I did open the machine up, and there is a ceramic part; thermal fuse? resitor? or Solenoid??? Not...

If the lamp is new, then your problem is caused either by the lamp socket that the lamp slides into, or the lamp thermal fuse.
The white part over the fan is a dropping resistor, which allows the projector to operate in the "LOW LAMP" position of the power switch.
A factory-trained service dealer can help you locate the parts or (better suggestion) isolate & repair your projector.

Kodak slide projector Kodak 600 burning bulbs, fan is working

Excessively short lamp life is usually caused by material building up on the lamp socket terminals, caused by arcing. This material build-up causes higher current loads and will ultimately shorten lamp life. A new lamp socket is a simple solution to your problem!

Light won't come on, replaced old light bulb.

First, check to see if the lamp lights at all (spill light coming out of the projector near the fan). If it does, then the problem could be just the "dark shutter" not opening. If the lamp does not light, it could be a couple of things: it could be the lamp thermal fuse has opened or it could be a bad lamp socket.
Sounds like you need to seek out a factory-trained repair dealer for this one, to narrow down the possibilities!

How do you replace the bulb on a Kodak Carousel 600?

This post is a few months old but in case this come sup again: Assuming you have a 4000 series projector, withdraw the lamp housing after unplugging the projector. THe kind of clasp will vary a bit but it's more or less in the centre of the lamp housing which is located at the rear, right of the projector. The housing will stop just before you pull it out entirely. If you must, pull it gently but firmly some more, but it's not theoretically required. If you pull it all the way out you'll need to be careful re-inserting it so check out how it slides in and out before removing the whole lamp module.

Over the top of the lamp you will see a metal , bent "spring" that pushes down on the rear of the bulb.The spring terminates over and beside the bulb, hooked into the lamp housing. Press down on it a bit and outward to unhook it. Now don't yank it up but gently and firmly pull it so that the back of the lamp rises with it. You may not see it at this point but there is a corresponding bit of metal spring under the bulb, pushing up on the back of the bulb (where the electrical contacts are). In theory this will bring the bulb up enough to clear the socket and you should see the two electrical contacts (prongs) of the bulb. In practice, sometimes the bulbs stick inside the socket. Replacements sockets are hard to get and can be expensive so if it sticks, easy off a bit on the upward pressure, gently press down a bit on the (cooled) bulb a the back, and try it again.

You may or may not need to put a small finger under the bulb to ease it out of the holder. These weren't the easiest to operate lamp holders!

When inserting a new bulb, just reverse the above, You may want to gently press (too hard may crack the socket!) on the back of the new bulb as it goes into the socket. You want that bulb in there firmly so it doesn't arc electricity, which will corrode the lamp sockets and the bulb's prongs. Be careful to keep the lamp as even (level) as possible when reinserting it so the bulb doesn't crack. On the off chance it does, most times it will still operate satisfactorily as long as the prongs are firlmy in the socket.

Koday Ektagraphic III projection lamp differences

The newest style eliminated the heat absorbing lens and (I think) made the mirror do that job. This improved the light output marginally. I don't know if the new style of lamp module is still available or not. You can ask a Kodak dealer or if in the US/Canada (shipping applies) try and search for p/n 2H2256.

Alternatively you can use EXW lamps which are high brightness (though still 300 watts). However these are very expensive and have a short lamp life...15 hours I think.
