SOURCE: ekatagraphic slide projector that won't advance the carosel forward or backward. it will pop a slide up and down. it sounds jammed it humms when buttons are depressed any ideas?

The most common causefor the failure of the slide tray to advance or reverse is the breakageof this small Link (part # 217769). It fits on the end of the solenoid actuator arm and is held in place by a Rivet (part # 159943). Thereplacement of this part does not take a rocket scientist, however, amoderate mechnical aptitude skill is required.
This Set contains 1 Link and 1 Rivet. If your projector Does NOT have a focus motor in it, then this is the kit for you. If your projector does have a focus motor, please order "KODAK-KIT" From: https://www.micro-tools.com/store/item_detail.aspx?ItemCode=LINK

SOURCE: My projector was not used

You don't indicate the model, but I will assume it's older. Chances are the LINK that connects the slide change mechanism to the cycle solenoid has cracked and/or broken. This is not an easy repair, but the good news is there are still parts available (www.micro-tools.com). You should probably locate a factory-trained dealer to make this repair. Good Luck !

I just dragged this projector out of my grandma's basement. I have a new bulb and the projector appears to be in working condition except for the slide advance--the slides advance continuously. How...


There is usually a sliding tab on the side of the projector (behind the handle) that toggles between "manual" and "automatic" advance. (Some models will have a couple of pre-set advance settings between "manual" and "automatic." These usually advance the slides every three to ten seconds.) Push the tab to the manual setting--this will allow you to use the buttons towards the front of the machine to advance your slides.If moving the tab doesn't work it may be broken or jammed.

When remote button is pushed the unit will not cycle unit is jammed kodak carousel 750h


The projector may not be jammed. It is very common in this generation of projectors for the cycle solenoid "link" to be broken. The "link" connects & transfers power from the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. If this is the case, you can still get parts from: www.micro-tools.com
The problem now become this is a difficult repair if you have no experience inside a Kodak Slide Projector. My advice is to contact a factory trained repair dealer with this information (although it very well may be cheaper and faster to buy a used projector on the internet !). Good Luck !!

I have Hanimex Rondex 120 rotary magazines. I was told these would work in the Vivitar 5000AF. Is this true, as the slide on mine is jamming on the return?


I have a VIVITAR 5000 AF slide projector.

Occasionally, the slide gets stuck while operating the mechanical hand to change the slide. Most of the time it works when I push the slide carrier by hand. Very very infrequently, the projector actually throws out the slide.
I have ascertained that teh Kodak slides which are mounted on paper frames are much too thin for the mechanical hand pushing teh slide in and out. The solution is to remount teh slides on palstic frames or some how add to the thickness of the slide. I have not tried it yet , though.

Any more ideas?

Projector works fine, but will not advance slides. Does nothing with remote or with forward/reverse buttons on projector.


Try a different tray (preferably a Kodak 80-slide tray). If it works, then the problem is a tray problem. If it makes no difference, check the "SELECT" function. If that works, then your projector requires an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. If it does not work, remove the tray and push the "REVERSE" button 4 or 5 times (this will clear a mechanism jam if one has occurred). If you still have nothing, then chances are that the slide change mechanism drive belt is broken or stretched. try the diagnostic things I suggested. If they are no help, I'm sorry to say you need the help of a factory-trained repair dealer. Good Luck !!

My kodak 600H projector tray will not move to the release position? any suggestions.


You may just have a slide jam (particularly common with older slides in 140-Slide Trays).
First of all, you need to get the tray removed. At the center of the tray is the hub, and an emergency tray release slot. Make sure the slide tray locking ring is in place and tight(!), then insert a quarter in the emergency tray release slot and turn, lifting the tray at the same time. One slide will probably fall out. Replace the slide in the tray with the same orientation as the other slides in the tray (markings, slide#, etc.). Then with the tray upside down (now you see why I told you to make sure the slide tray locking ring was in place and tight), rotate the metal bottom plate back to the "zero" position.
Once the tray is removed, cycle the projector 4 or 5 times, then re-insert the tray. If the problem persists, you may have warped slides (get them re-mounted or be sure to use 80-Slide Trays rather than 140 Slide Trays), or you could have a jammed slide change mechanism. And because we're talking about a Model 600H here, it may be cheaper to buy a used projector online than have it repaired. Good Luck !!

MODEL 760h WILL NO LONGER ADVANCE SLIDES


The KODAK Carousel 760H was manufactured approximately between 1971 & 1981.
The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". This "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Repair parts are still available, but this is a repair best left to a factory-trained technician. Contact an Authorized Repair Dealer.

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.

No light source through lens


The blackout shutter is on a very sensitive "trigger". When the two silver pressure pads that push against a slide inside the gate (aperture) are flat against the gate- that is no slide in place - the pads are linked to the trigger and make the blackout shutter stay up, blocking light from hitting the screen when no slide is in place. When there is a slide, the pads trigger the spring mounted shutter to fall down.

Least likely but possible is that the spring has come off one end of the shutter.If so, disassembly of the projector casing , not the mechanism, will be needed.

Most likely is that the trigger is out of adjustment. It's fairly simple but if you overcompensate and/or don't understand exactly how it works you can end up with the shutter not working at all.If that happens the projector will still work but the light will flash on the screen at each slide change. So whether you want to tackle it will depend on your comfort zone as far as 'fine" adjustments go. If you don't get it right you may have to do some major dissasembly of the projector to get to the mechanism. You will not need to take any part of the mechanism apart however.

Just thought of one other possibility. Look into the side of the gate where the slides fall into, with a strong flashlight. you'll see the trigger (black, part of the shutter itself) and you may be able to see where it makes very tenuous, light contact with another part of the mechanism (depending on the model). Carefully clean it with a Q-tip and WD 40 or alcohol. Be careful not to leave any cotton behind. Then apply, with the tube of the Q-tip, some very light grease, and only a tiny bit. Recommended is Super Lube with Teflon available from many industrial supply stores and inter net sites.If the old lube and/or dirt have piled up there, this may be all you need to do.

As for docjibe's problem with no forward/advance, it's a common problem and it means a critical nylon link has broken inside. it usually takes an expert to do the job correctly. In a pinch, you can, with some experience to get the right "touch", gently and quickly brush down and outwards with your thumb, on the grey button marked Select.The tray will usually advance.
