Thank you for using FixYa.

Its possible that the spring came out from the slide after you've reassembled it.There are two plastic pieces that is part of the slide which holds springs. There are two springs in the slide, if one popped out then check out for other spring.the fitting of both the spring are in same way.but if the plastic lock is broken the spring cannot be fitted as will have to do some modification manually to fit the spring.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Kodak Carousel 600 Slide Projector manual

The KODAK Carousel 600 Projector has NO forward or reverse controls. To cycle the tray forward, LIGHTLY depress the SELECT bar. Reverse is accomplished by holding the SELECT bar down completely and rotating the tray by hand. Jim

Our Kodak projector 4400 advances the slides too rapidly (1 second or less each slide). This model does not have a variable automatic timer. Any way to slow it down?

The continuous cycle condition is caused by out-of-position cycle contacts. See the attached illustration for the correct position of the cycle contacts.

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:
My advice: Find a authorized repair dealer and have this repair done for you! Good Luck !!

On my kadak 4400 I placed a slide tray with 35mm slides in. After turning the power on I attempted to advance the first slide. Nothing happened with the slide. I turned it off reset the tray and tried. ...

Try turning your projector on without a slide tray. Cycle it 2 or 3 cycles in reverse. Place the tray back on the projector and cycle forward. By cycling it a few times in reverse, it re-sets the cycling mechanism.

The carousel displays the slide but does not pause at a slide. It continues to cycle to the next slide within seconds. Why?

You have a problem known as "continuous cycle". The cycle contact assembly needs adjustment. Remove the slide tray, unplug the projector, remove the lamp module. Turn the projector upside down. There are 6 screws (either TORX T-15 or Phillips Head) that secure the bottom cover - - make sure you remove all 6! Carefully pry the bottom cover from the top housing (some projectors take true grit to get open!!). Once open, locate the cycle contact assembly, near the center of the projector. The illustration below should show you the correct position of the contact to the pad. Bend carefully, and a very little at a time. Then, with your safety glasses ON, plug the projector in and try cycling it in Forward. If it continues to cycle, repeat the adjustment. Parts are brittle, so bend carefully!! Let me know if you need more help!!! Jim

Slides will not advance.buttons do not seem to work

1. Does the SELECT button work? If so, hold it & remove the tray (if one is present). Skip to step 3.
2. If the SELECT button doesn't work, remove the slide tray (if one is on the projector) using the emergency tray release in the center hub of the projector. 3. 3. Turn the projector on & try to cycle a few times in reverse. This is how you clear a slide change mechanism jam in the projector.
4. If that didn't work, then either you have a broken cycle circuit wire (usually an orange wire within the projector) or the release wire is trapped under the cycle pad. Refer to the following diagram for the correct "at-rest" position of these 2 contacts. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then contact a factory-trained 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 !!

Carousel projector slide not working right. Can only see half of the picture on the screen.

I had a similar problem and was able to get the full view by giving the change button a quick touch for a partial activation. It seems as though the cycle does not complete before the motor is turned off at what should be the end of the cycle. I took it apart to find the problem but did not discover the correction. So the little "flick" on the change button finished moving the slide into position and the "blocker panel"(inside the projector)) out of the way so the whole slide could be seen.

Kodak 760H will not advance slides

If the projector neither advances or reverses, then most likely the problem is caused by the cycle solenoid "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is plastic, and over time gets brittle & cracks, rendering the slide change mechanism non-functional.
If the projector cycles in Reverse and functions in Select, then chances are the projector just needs an adjustment of the cycle solenoid.
Either problem can be addressed by a factory-trained service dealer.

Cannot reverse the carousel

The problem you are describing is most likely a cycle solenoid adjustment. There are several versions of Kodak Slide Projectors, and each version has a different method to adjust the cycle solenoid so you get a complete forward and reverse cycle. It is not an adjustment (in any version) you can make without some disassembly, therefore I recommend you take the projector to a factory-trained repair dealer, and let them make the adjustment. Good Luck!
