I am not familiar with a screwdriver adjustment on a Carousel 600 Projector. Are you referring to the emergency tray release in the center hub on the top of the projector?? If not, can you tell me specifically where the screwdriver adjust is located on the projector, please?? Thanks !! Jim
The 140 tray with older slides and an older projector is a gamble with slide jams every time!! Slides have a natural curve that gets bigger over time. In addition, as slides age, the corners will begin to de-laminate (aka: "dog-eared" slide). Because the slide slot in a 140-tray is SO NARROW, the least little deformation of the slide from normal will cause the slides not to drop. My recommendation, given the age of the projector, trays and slides, is to get rid of those 140 trays and stick with 80-slide trays. Good Luck !! Jim
First of all, you'll have to get the slides out of the projector. You may have to use needle-nosed pliers to remove them. Once removed, cycle the projector 3 or 4 times using the REVERSE button. The jam will be cleared. Good Luck !!! Jim
First of all, make sure the LOCKING RING is in position on the tray & locked! This will prevent all the slides from falling out when you remove the tray. Next, place a quarter (or a dime or a penny) in the SLOT in the HUB of the projector. Turn the coin to release the Emergency Latch Release and lift the tray off. Flip the tray upside down. Remove the jammed slide from the optical gate of the projector (inspect it for damage - "dog-eared" slide corners cause this kind of jam) and re-insert it in the slot of the tray from the underside (now facing you). Now rotate the tray until the pointing arrow and the notch on the bottom of the tray align. At this point the tray should be back in the "Zero" position and can be re-installed on the projector. I have attached copies of Kodak instructions for this, as well. Good Luck !! Jim
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
Michael, Is this a Kodak projector? If so, will the tray lock in? Will it rotate if you hold down the "SELECT" button? Look at the slot in the top of the projector that the slides drop into - - is the slide lift lever in the "up" or "down" position with the projector powered on? If you answer these questions, I think I can help you diagnose your projector. Thanks!
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.
Try a couple of things: 1. Turn on the projector & cycle it in "Reverse" 3 or 4 times (without the tray). Do the levers that move the tray move correctly? If so, do you have another tray you can try? If another tray works correctly, follow Step #2. 2. The 140-Tray has to be in the "zero" position for the tray to seat on the projector. Check to make sure the Locking Ring (the ring is in the center of the tray & keeps the slides from coming out) is TIGHT on the top of the tray. Once checked, turn the tray upside-down. Refer to Page 8 in your owners' manual (if you don't have one, I've made an image of the page, below). You have to make sure the plate on the bottom of the tray is lined up at the notch at shown.

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 !!
First, with the tray off the projector, cycle the projector several times in forward and then in reverse. Next, check to make sure the locking ring on the top on the slide tray is LOCKED ON TIGHT. Then turn the tray upside down. On a 140 Slide tray there is an index notch. On the metal plate there is a index hole. Gently release the metal spring of the tray latch and rotate the metal plate until the notch and hole line up. Now the tray should drop on the projector and index properly.
