Question about Rollei 66 Dual Slide Projector

1 Answer

Rollei 66 Dul P projector

It skips first slide (6x6 glass mounted) on the tray, also I have a problem with jamming of slides towards the end of the tray during slides projection, which requires me forcefully to dislodge the stacked slide (two slides jam into a slot) and to reset the settings.
Would I be able to fix the problem myself or do I need to send the projector for service, if so where to?

Can't open drum unit

The drum unit is removed by sliding the entire tray towards you, then raise the greyish locking toggle on the left hand side of the tray slide. lift the tray handle slightly and pull the entire tray out. When replacing the tray, put the back end in and then drop the locking toggle before pushing the tray home.

Slides jam in the projector

Chances are if you move your slides into an 80 slide tray your slide jamming will go away. Slides warp and bow due to the affects of humidity on the paper mount and the transparency itself when they are stored. The compartment dimensions in a 140-slide tray do not allow for ANY slide warpage, When the slide warps, it hangs up in the tray (or hits the bottom of the tray ejecting) and the projector will jam. I hope this helps. Good luck !!

Kodak 4600 projector just jammed with full house viewing slides for first time in 30 years

I'm sorry for your presentation embarrassment.
The most common cause of slide jams is the 140-Slide Tray. Because to compartment width was designed to get the maximum number of slides in the defined Carousel circumference, the compartment width that each individual slide fits into is unforgivingly narrow at the hub. If your slides are like mine (and most other peoples), they are probably older. The cardboard mounts begin to de-laminate with age, causing a "dog-ear" effect on the corners of the slide. Because there is no room for out-of-spec slides, they rub on the way down (or the way up). The mechanism keeps chugging along, thinking the slide is in the gate (or back in the tray). Because the slide has slowed it's travel, the jam occurs.
My recommendation is to do one of 2 things: 1. Have your slides re-mounted. or 2. Buy some 80 Slide Trays and transfer your slides into them. You can buy them used in great condition on the internet pretty cheap.
If you have more questions, feel free to ask!! If I have helped, some kind words back to FixYa would be appreciated!!
Good Luck !! Jim

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 !!

My kodak 600H projector tray will not move to the release position? any suggestions.

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 !!

After unjaming slide feed and showing some slides it jams again

I have to assume from your description that the slides are jamming either entering the "gate of the projector or exiting it. The most common cause of this is warped or damaged (dog-eared corners) slides. The former problem is caused by age and exposure to normal humidity changes in a home. The latter is caused by either the former or by de-lamination of the slide mount material. These 2 problems are made worse by the 140 tray, which has a very narrow (and unforgiving) compartment width. If you are using a 140 tray, try an 80 slide tray and see if it is better. Otherwise, if you have damaged slide mounts, you should get them re-mounted.

When I turn on the lamp with no tray mounted, the light shines through and shows a shadow of the slide lift arm on the screen. The tray does not properly mount on the projector and the For and Rev...

You are describing, among other things, a timing problem with the projector. That is why the light projects with no slide in the gate and the tray does not properly mount. This could have been caused by a slide jam, which "broke" the re-settable emergency clutch. To check (and re-set the emergency clutch), plug the projector in, turn it on and push & hold the reverse cycle button on the projector for a couple of cycles. If it fixes your problem - great!! Otherwise you need to contact an authorized repair dealer for repair.

Elmo TRV-35H "eating" slides

CAUTION: Mains voltage connections are exposed once the base of the projector is removed. ONLY attempt repairs if you are confident of your skills!

There are several possible causes for this problem:

1. Kodak produce two different types of carousel magazines - one for glass mounts and one for card mounts. You must not mix glass and slide mounts in the magazine - it causes the focus mechanism to 'hunt' and also causes the slides to jam, as described.
2. These projectors are almost antiques ..... lubricants dry out and the mechanisms slow down and stick! Some 'technicians' apply graphited grease over the top of the dried stuff, hoping it will soak in! Clean as much of the old lubricants off with 'electronic component' solvent on cotton buds particulalrly around all of the cams. Pay particular attention to the slide lifter cam follower - grease here can cause the lifter to only lift, or drop, the slide partially though its full travel. I use 'CopperEase' very, very sparingly on the cams (NOT on the face of the slide lifter cam) and haven't experienced any problems.
You should not adjust the cams on their shaft.
3. The slide pressure plate is acuated through one of the cam followers, opening and closing at the right time. There is a very fine pivot bar at the bottom of the plate. The pivot points can be lubricated with a single small drop of fine industrial sewing machine oil. Avoid 3in1 oil at all cost!

Under desk sliding tray won't slide

It sounds like She closed it with it not quite aligned properly.

First try lift up on it a bit while pulling it out some, if it's jammed it may take quite a bit of force. If you have more than one person 1 might lift and the other pull.

If this is tried with no success, you may have to go underneath the desk with a screwdriver and remove one of the sliderails in order to dislodge it. Once loose seperate the sliderails from the mounts and then reattach the mount to the desk. Then insert the rollers into the mount (Holding tray at a 45 deg angle.) Once the rollers are in tilt the tray down and push the tray in to seat it. It should click into place when it catches. It should now be able to slide as normal.

Hope this helps
