I just spent 20 minutes writing up the solution and because I wasn't logged in, it dumped my post! So, IF you are still in need of a solution, you can e-mail me at bytebackkw@yahoo.ca and I'll post it here again. If you have already got it fixed I won't bother spending another 20 minutes re-writing!

Kodak 650H projector - will cycle when the button is pushed to advance, but doesn't stop when the shutter is open. Rather it seems to keep moving until the shutter is in the closed position. The slides...


Sounds like a timing problem to me.... There is an adjustment you can make, but it's a "trial & error" fix: you have to make an adjustment one way or the other in the camstack, and then see if it's worse or better (relative to a correct slide cycle). This adjustment is made with the projector upside-down with the bottom cover removed. Check out the attached picture for more detail on where & how to make the adjustment.

Kodak carousel 750H our carousel works except it does not slow down long enough to actually allow us to see the slides. The plug in remote seems to not have any impact whatsoever


The issue is the clutch contact inside the projector. The contact is either broken or out of adjustment.
The clutch spring protrudes from the hub of the mechanism camstack. The camstack makes ONE revolution for ONE slide cycle. The clutch contact stops the clutch spring at the end of the cycle, putting the projector in "idle", awaiting the next "cycle" signal. Based on your description, this is your problem area. Turn the projector upside down & remove the bottom cover. CAREFULLY remove the internal lenses with a CLEAN, lint-free cloth. Wrap each lens in a separate cloth, as the lenses can shatter if exposed to rapid temperature changes. Next, remove the lamp with another cloth & keep it wrapped, as well. CAREFULLY plug the projector back in (DANGER - EXPOSED VOLTAGE!!) & turn the projector to the "Fan" position. Look for the rotating camstack. Turn the projector on & off quickly to locate the straight wire protruding out of the camstack hub. Turn the projector OFF & UNPLUG. Now look for the "J"-shaped wire that SHOULD make contact with the clutch contact. You will need to re-form the clutch contact wire VERY GENTLY (the wire is brittle!!), so that the straight wire is JUST BARELY trapped by the "J"-shaped wire. Now plug in & turn the power switch to "FAN" to check that the camstack only makes ONE revolution. If it stops: GREAT !! If it still revolves multiple times, repeat the process until the camstack STOPS after ONE cycle. This should resolve your continuous cycle problem. Good Luck !! Jim

Slides continue to advance,wont stop


The continuous cycle is caused by the slide change clutch contact. This contact is either burned off from excessive use or has somehow moved out of correct adjustment. I have attached an image that might help you identify correct alignment. For parts, contact: www.micro-tools.com

600 wont rotate 140 slide tray


I am assuming you are referring to a Kodak Carousel 600 Slide Projector?? If so, the problem is the cycle solenoid link. The link connects the cycle solenoid to the cycle lever. It is made of plastic, and because of the age of your machine, it has gotten brittle and cracked, making moving a slide tray impossible. The bad news: If you are not VERY familiar with slide projectors and have access to a service manual, this is an extremely difficult repair. The good news: While Kodak has stopped selling repair parts, you can still buy slide projector parts from: www.micro-tools.com
My advice: Find a authorized repair dealer and have this repair done for you! Good Luck !!

Slides won't advance or reverse


The AF-2 is suffering from old age! The problem you are experiencing is "continuous cycle", and is caused by the cycle contact either being bent or worn to the point it can't stop the cycle camstack at the end of a slide change. If you are familiar with projector repair, I can give you specific instructions. Otherwise, I suggest you locate an authorized repair dealer. Even though the projector is old, all the necessary parts are available from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! 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!!

When the projector was turned on it started to cycle as when ejecting slides then it stopped and seems to be jammed...the rectangle black screen that opens and closes during the cycle to view slides is...


First of all, remove the tray (use the emergency tray removal in the center hub of the projector). BE CAREFUL not to spill your slides, so before you remove the tray, make sure the tray ring is in position & tight, then when you remove the tray turn it upside down immediately and move the tray plate to the "zero" position. Remove any slides that might be in the gate of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle the projector 2 or 3 times in Reverse. This should clear a tray/slide jam. Good Luck !!

I cannot get my projector to stop rotating the slides tray. No matter what setting the projector is on, it runs on "fan mode" and keeps rotating the tray. The Kodak Carousel 4400 that I have is...


This problem is caused by the cycle contact requiring an adjustment. Unplug the projector, remove the lamp module, turn the projector upside down & remove the bottom cover. Near the center of the projector is the Slide Change Mechanism. At the center of the mechanism is the Camstack. Refer to the illustration for the correct position of the clutch contact to the cycle pad. You will have to bend the clutch contact wire (GENTLY) a little bit, then plug in the projector & cycle it Forward a few times and check the position of the wire to the pad. This adjustment usually takes a trained hand a few times to get the position correct. If you don't want to tackle it, contact a factory-trained repair dealer for assistance. Good Luck !!jauburn_4.jpg

760H projector will not go fwd or rev either from


The problem you are experiencing is caused by a broken cycle solenoid "link". The "link" connects the solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism. Over time, the "link" (made of plastic) gets brittle, cracks and the projector stops cycling. Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this requires an experienced hand and a service manual. Once done, your projector should be good for another 20 years !!

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


You have jammed the slide change mechanism. Turn the projector off. Remove the tray using the emergency release slot in the center hub of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle it a few times in reverse, then in forward. That usually clears a mechanism jam.
