Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

2 days ago my Kodak Carousel 760H projector started going backward or forward at will, inspite of which button was pushed. Now it will not go forward or backward with either the handheld or the side buttons. I only need a few hours more usefulness to sort my slides before sending them to be converted. What is the project cost to repair this problem?

This is not an easy repair. It would probably be more cost-effective (if you will NEVER use the projector again) to rent one for the remainder of your project.

The problem you are describing is most likely a broken "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time, this plastic "link" gets hard & brittle, and cracks, giving the failure you describe. It is a significant tear-down of the projector by a trained technician.

If you have not yet gotten your sorting done, there is a sort-of workaround when the link breaks. See the "Select" button on the side? If you quickly and lightly (try varying pressures and timing) brush down with your thumb on that Select button, usually the projector will advance. Slower but more reliable would be to simple press and hold the Select button down fully and manually rotate the tray back or forward. be certain you release the Select button when the slide is directly over the aperture(opening) to avoid jamming.

Make sure it is getting power if so, unplug from power, then replace the light bulb/reflector with a known good one.

Select projector class room


The problem you describe is a timing issue. Because the 760H is so old (about 45 years old), parts availability may be slim to none.... You may be dollars ahead to buy a working projector off the internet.... Try: www.vinevalleyimaging.com
Good Luck !! Jim

Dirt or dust accumulation can retard the gear mechanism. If you get Canned Air at WalMart, blow out all open areas and see if you can dislodge the material collected inside.

Yes, there is a fix. It's a pretty straight-forward adjustment. You can go to this web page: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-locale=en_US&pq-path=6499
The Service Manual there will detail the the adjustment.
Good Luck !! Jim

What is the correct carousel for a kodak 760 H projector?


A KODAK Carousel 760H is designed to be used with either KODAK 140 or KODAK 80 Slide Trays. The KODAK 80 Slide Tray has wider slide compartments, which tend to be more forgiving for older, slightly warped slides.

Kodak Projector 760H. Carousel won't move forward or reverse. With remote or pressing the actual buttons.


Chances are that your projector has a broken solenoid "link". This "Link" connects the slide change solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Over time this part becomes brittle & cracks, rendering the slide change non-functional. A pretty easy fix for an authorized repair dealer.

Based on your description & what I know about those projectors, I suspect the solenoid "link" has broken. The "link" connects the cycle solenoid with the slide change mechanism. Over time, this plastic "link" gets hard, brittle and cracks, rendering slide change non-functional. The good news is there are still parts around to fix your projector & get another 20 years out of it. You should contact a factory-trained repair dealer to affect the repairs. Good Luck !!

Bought a 760H to show some old sllides, but the tray does not advance. Is this something that can be fixed? Everything else works fine.


In a word - yes. Most anything on a Kodak Slide Projector can be fixed.
If your Carousel 760H will cycle in Reverse but not Forward, then it's an adjustment of the cycle solenoid. If the projector will not cycle slide forward ort reverse, then it is probably the cycle solenoid "Link". The "Link" connects the plunger of the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The good news: parts are available (www.micro-tools.com). You will need to seek out a factory-trained dealer to make either one of these repairs for you.

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/

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.
