Question about Telex 3280 Caramate 80 Slides Rotary Carousel Slide Projector

1 Answer

I have a telex caramate-the old boxy kind kind that can project pictures onto the screen of the unit itself or shoot out to an external screen. The lamp is working and so does the advance and return but there seems to something blocking the light from shining through the lens or onto the internal screen? I think there is something I am not doing-some switch that I haven't turned on? Everything seems tp work fine-but what should I do? larivas.mac@mac.com

This is a very basic unit - no safeties or protections inside it. If the image can't be seen then either the lamp is off or there's something blocking it - your case. Only 2 things can do that: either the slider arm (the one that flips the slides in and out) is stuck or there's something in the mechanism blocking the image. So no, there's no button you can press to fix it. The only way to find out what is causing it and how to fix it is to dismantle the unit.

Projector turns itself off and on


Caramates have a Thermal Breaker built into their electrical circuits, which will "open" if the internal temperature gets too high for safety. When the internal temperature drops to an acceptable level, the breaker "re-sets" and the projector will come back on. You will need to check for any obstructions to air flow first. Next, make sure the exhaust fan is running at the proper speed. Once those items are checked, if the problem still exists, you will need to locate a circuit diagram and the appropriate thermal breaker for replacement. Good Luck!! Jim

My tv screen when on turns yellow then after a while it will switch back to normal colors what can be wrong with it....


Televisions covered: all Projection with yellow picture, but not Projection TVs with a yellowish tint surrounding objects in a nearly normal picture.

Yellow = red + green
normal picture = red + blue + green (RGB). See illustration.

Fig. 1 Additive color mixing in an RGB monitor, or RGB Projection TV.

The circuitry powering your blue output, or the blue light engine itself is starting to fail.

Operating Theory:

The lamp module shines a bright light into the optical unit; there are a series of lens and baffles, and at the top of the light engine, a lens puts the picture into a mirror which is reflected onto the screen; All video and color is processed thru the light engine. Blue most commonly fails first, leaving a yellow picture.

I have an OLD telex projector. Looks like a box with a tv screen on one side and carousel on top. have no idea how to use it. maybe bulb needs replacing


Telex called those "CaraMate XXXX" (XXXX usually relating to model number ). The old ones projected on the internal screen. Newer models could project both on the internal screen and (by sliding a door on the top panel) on a projection screen for larger audiences.
If it needs a lamp, check with: www.bulbman.com But you may have to search - - it's been a long time since they were manufactured!
Good Luck !!

Slide/tray advancement


http://www.fixya.com/support/t1564949-slides_advance_continusly

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.

Old projection tv NEC PJ-60PI circa 1972


You will want to find a local servicer for an honest tech to come out and check for bad connections on boards. It will be hard to find someone for a 1972 unit and parts even harder. If you are near Cleveland, I can help

Picture cuts off at bottom of screen


Do your basic trouble shooting first, disconnecting satelite or cable box, etc. to eliminate bad attached components or cables. How old is the bulb for this model. They are only good for three years of so. $300.00 part. If the main Wega engine is out, look out, expensive part. Have a qualified tech look at your unit. It will pay for itself as the picture looked even better than new after repairs.
