You may have trouble buying new. Kodak stopped manufacturing slide projectors in 2004. There are qualified repair dealers that you can send your projector to & get it fixed. What you describe is a pretty common problem with the Carousel Custom line as they age...

My kodak carousel auto focus 760 carousel does not move but the projector makes a noise when I press the buttons how can I get it to move


Your Carousel 760 Slide Projector is about 45 years old. One of the problems I have seen as Carousel Slide Projectors age is that the plastic parts in the projector get brittle and break. Given your description of the observed condition is that probably either the gear on the focus motor shaft or the gear it interfaces with (or both) that is broken. Given the age of the machine, parts will be tough to locate. Try: www.micro-tools.com
for the best chance to locate those parts. Good Luck !! Jim

Can I advance my slide tray manually?


A Kodak Carousel 600 has no Forward/Reverse buttons for tray movement. The only way to advance the tray with the slide change mechanism is by LIGHTLY depressing the SELECT bar. To manually advance the tray, push and hold the SELECT bar down fully.While holding the SELECT bar, you should be able to rotate the tray by hand. Good Luck!! Jim

The select bar on the projector is not working.


The Carousel 600 Projector is at least 45 years old!! Great to hear it still turns on!!
Because the 600 has no forward or reverse buttons, forward is accomplished by "tickling" (very lightly push) the Select bar. If you can cycle it forward and no Select, then you need to adjust the cycle solenoid to find the balance between forward and select. If you have NO forward, then chances are either the cycle solenoid is WAY out of adjustment, or the LINK between the CYCLE SOLENOID PLUNGER and the CYCLE LEVER is broken. You should still be able to order the LINK from: www.micro-tools.com
Good Luck !! Jim

Kodak 850 Carousel Projector tray won't advance


The Carousel 850 is 40-45 years old. The symptoms you describe indicate the timing is off. Timing is an "adjust & test"..... try a SMALL adjustment and then test it.... adjust again & test again. Repeat until you get smooth tray action. See the attached illustration:

Kodak 600 projector has not advance button


You're correct!! The Kodak Carousel 600 does not have an ADVANCE button. To advance the tray you LIGHTLY depress the SELECT bar on the edge of the projector. There is no reverse capability, other than holding the SELECT bar down fully and rotating the tray by hand. Enjoy your projector!! Jim

Slides will not advamce when you push lever. It is 50 yrs old.


The KODAK Carousel 4600 was manufactured from 1981 to 2004. If the tray won't advance with the push button on the projector, but will reverse, then it is a contact problem under the handle. If it doesn't cycle in forward OR reverse, but the "SELECT" feature does work, then there is a problem with the cycle (orange) wiring or the slide-change mechanism requires an adjustment. If forward, reverse and select ALL don't work, chances are the low-voltage side of the power motor is no longer providing the required voltage. An authorized repair dealer can help you sort this out.

AIREQUIPT 1135 - focus works but can't get the auto slide to work


If the slide tray doesn't advance or reverse using the on-board or remote control buttons, chances are that: 1. You have a broken mechanism drive belt. 2. You have a jammed slide change mechanism module or 3. The mechanism trip contact is trapped behind its mating contact on the mechanism camshaft.
All of these problems require service documentation & special tools. My recommendation is to find an Authorized Repair Dealer.

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!

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


What's happened is what happens to all that style eventually. There is a small nylon link that has aged and broken in the heart of the mechanism. A very skilled amateur can repair this but it may take a professional. If you are in the USA, start at http://www.kodakparts.com/Pre_1981.html or http://www.fargo-ent.com/kodak.html if you want to try it yourself. It's the same company, basically. If youa re in Canada, go to Doug Banks http://www.photographicrepairs.com/

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


You have jammed the slide change mechanism. Turn the projector off. Remove the tray using the emergency release slot in the center hub of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle it a few times in reverse, then in forward. That usually clears a mechanism jam.
