Without knowing the specific KODAK model you have, it's difficult to speculate on the repair. But given my background, it sounds like half on the tensioning spring for the direction lever has broken off. My best advice is that it's time to get that KODAK serviced again !!

45 year old Slide projector

Ask around your local photo shops for a guy with a long grey beard to ask.

You could try advertising for an instruction book on your local freecycle and if Hanimex is still in business they might help you.

Some of those slide projectors were intuitive as they were completely manual but there were also magazine load, semi-auto and fully automatic versions that could also have a recorded commentary and backing music synchronised to the slide show.

Best of luck friend, have lots of fun with it.

Slide drops down but pops back up in Kodak carousel 750h

Sounds like what you are describing is "continuous cycle". If it is, then this can usually be fixed with a fairly quick adjustment. Once the bottom is off the projector, locate the clutch spring / clutch contact. The tip of the clutch spring (spring sticking straight out of the camstack hub) should be just visable over the clutch spring (the "L"-shaped spring contact). If bending is necessary to achieve a normal cycle, BEND CAREFULLY!! The springs are old and brittle!!.

My projector will not show the slide.Everything else seems to be working.

I'm assuming the lamp is lit, the light is just not coming through the optics. You didn't specify the model, but most later manufactured Kodak projectors have a "dark shutter". This feature keeps the blinding light off the screen when you arrive at a spot in your slide tray without a slide in it. It senses a slide dropping into the slide gate, and pops the shutter open. Otherwise the shutter stays closed.
One of 2 things has happened:
1. The spring that "pops" the shutter open has fallen off.
2. The "dark shutter" latch needs adjusting.
You can find the Kodak Service Manuals that will give you instructions for adjustment and or replacing the spring at:

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:
Good Luck !! Jim

Projector just jammed. cannot remove carousel or advance or reverse direction

This is a pretty common problem. First, make sure the locking ring on the top of the slide tray is on tight! Next (power off), place a quarter in the center hub of the projector and turn (while lifting the tray). If you have a newer projector it will have a plated slider that you can move with your fingertip, instead of the quarter. Lift the tray off the projector and turn it upside down (now you know why I said "make sure the locking ring on the slide try is on tight"!!). Remove the slide in the gate of the projector and return it to the slot visable through the plate on the bottom of the tray. Keeping the tray upside down, pull back on the short metal spring near the outer edge of the tray. Holding that spring in, rotate the metal plate until it gets to the "zero" location on the tray. Release the spring.
Now turn on the projector (without the tray) and cycle it 3 or 4 times in Reverse (that clears the jam). Replace the tray and you are good to go!!
By the way, closely inspect the corners of your slides. If they are de-laminating, or if the entire slide has a "bow" to it, you will continue to have problems with your 140 Slide Trays. They were designed to hold the absolute maximum number of slides, with very little margin for error. If your slides are like mine, you may be better off moving them to 80-Slide Trays (available cheap and in great numbers used on the internet.
If this has helped you, great!! If you have more questions, please ask!! Please take a minute and give FixYa some positive feedback if I have helped you!
Good Luck !!

Just bought a kodak 650H slide projector and i put a tray with slides on the projector but it doesn't lock in or advance.

Chances are the projector you bought needs a slide change solenoid link or at the very least, an adjustment to the timing of the slide changing mechanism.

Kodak 410 Projector/Viewer - no lite through projector or viewer

These projectors were designed & made by Telex for Kodak.
If the screen stays black when you push a slide down into the "gate" (in either viewer or projector mode), then the trip mechanism that opens the shutters when a slide is detected has a problem. It could be an adjustment, a broken or out of position spring or hardened lubrication.
There is no good way to proceed unless you are trained in the service of these projectors. Contact a factory-trained repair dealer. Happy New Year!

By the sounds of your description, your projector needs an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. This is best done by a factory-trained dealer, who has the service manual. Sorry I can't be of more help. Happy New Year!

Slide/tray advancement

This link talks specifically about a Kodak slide projector. However the faulty mechanism in your Telex works in a similar way if you feel up to taking it apart. If you do, mark every screw and piece you remove, in a diagram. Though your symptom is sporadic advancing and the other link is continuous advancing, it's essentially the same cause, as sticking trigger mechanism in the clutch release.
