Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies
Basically all you need to do is a real good cleaning.If the mechanism was able to clear then the problem is going to be dried oils or varnish. The slides will stick on these buildups and you get your problem.
You can start off trying some simple things. The oils used were a peteroleum based light oil something akin to 10 weight sewing machine oil.You need to be very careful about oiling as you want is a film of oil on the parts. Anything more and you risk the excess oil getting on your slides.
So what you want to do is get some ispropyl rubbing alcohol and cotton swaps. This shouldn't attack the plastics but you can check that by putting some on in a hidden spot ie bottom. First start wetting and cleaning the slides. As the iso gets into the buildups you will start to see more gunk/dirt on the swabs. It may take a few goes before you see this depending on how hard the buildup is. And it will take a bit to clean it. When you are done the swab will be clean and the machanism will move smoothly up and down again. At this point you want to put a drop of sewing machine oil on a swab and gently wipe the tracks and any moving parts that contact. As well as any hinge points.
Basically the varnish is the main problem and this will show up on the reacks or in the pivots. You can also get this if the springs are worn out.
Usually it is just the dirt/gunge/varnish and nothing else. The reason they said $160 is that this isn't hard to fix but takes a lot of time.
