Crome over cupper or brass means some cloth between your wrench and the large nuts on E61 group. Carefully - and it opens. CLEAN and clean again! Do not open all cupplings at the same time. Take phopto on details so you get all pieces back./// Olev

I removed the brew group and it is now stuck in the remove position. I cannot replace it in the machine. The lever that says push is stuck in the pushed position

On the inner side of the brew group (The side opposite the hand grip) there is a small rectangular slider mechanism with a vertical tab that sticks out and a catch near the funnel where the ground coffee is deposited. This slider must be in the correct position in order for the brew group to be inserted properly. If this slider is in the upper position, push gently on the catch so that the slider slides downward about 5mm or 3/16 inch. (I am replying from memory - it is possible that the slider must be in the upper position to engage). This will realign the funnel slightly and release the thumb lever, allowing the brew group to be inserted.

Everything seems to function well, actually, I've never used this camera. Got if off of ebay, so maybe I was gypped. Anyways, the film advance lever seems to be stuck. It only goes half way. I can put...

DO NOT force it. It's going to need to be opened up by a technician and checked out. It may, or may not be repairable (or worth repairing). Batteries will have nothing to do with whether or not the wind lever will function. It sounds like the camera has jammed on someone, so they sold it off (probably without stating that little issue). The Chinon cameras aren't especially high-end, you can probably buy 10 new ones for the cost of having that one repaired, but you'll only know by finding a shop and asking.

Kodak Carousel slide projector: The 'select' press-down button (which allows you to move the slide tray to any location) is stuck. So, no slides can be shown.

I'm not sure what generation Carousel you have. And I'm assuming in it's current state you can place a tray on the projector & rotate it all around, but no slide will drop. That means something is holding the slide lift lever it it's "up" position.
The SELECT button is spring-loaded, so that it should return to "button up / slide lift lever down" when the button is released. You can check to see if the spring has broken or unhooked (requires removing the bottom cover). Beyond that, this could be a jam in the slide change mechanism, which requires a level of training to diagnose. I recommend you contact a factory-trained repair dealer for assistance. The good news: parts are still available from:

The brew group to my Vienna Deluxe is out of sync. I cannot get it to fit into the machine and then add the dump box for the grains. They do not fit. I do not want to force the brew group into place....

Problem: Brew group is out of sync. Brew group insertion. Brew group alignment.

Answer: Common to all Saeco superautomatics. After removing and cleaning the brew group, it will get onto the supports but will not lock into place as the gear is not aligned. With the brew group on a clean, well lit table, use a pair of chopsticks and a friend to assist. There is a small lever arm on each side that is accessible from the outside of the brew group. As the carriage slides down towards the correct position, the arms are seen 1" above the drive gear and towards the handle side of the brew group. Gently push in the lever so it slides inside of the locking bar. Both sides need to get pushed in at the same time so it helps to have a friend hold the brew group and push in one side while you pull down on the carriage and push in the other lever. The chopsticks insert into the half-moon on each side above the locking mechanism.

Paper jam 1

Hi there,

There is a little plastic lever/flag which detects the paper at the rear, just after the heat section. I think on this model it can just about be seen by opening the rear door, it should be in the middle of the black lower paper guide section. The "flag" should be protruding slightly to be activated when the paper passes. However if it is stuck down (hence giving you false paper jam message) it will be more difficult to see! Use a decent torch to help see.

( i have the same problem. So in my case the lever/flag was broken, so when the paper go to the half of the way it should push the lever down to the sensor. In my situation the peace of plastic that the paper must push was broken. So I just take glue, put the string in the broken peace of plastic and repaired/stick the lever on place and now it's all good. To reach the lever, I had to take to pieces almost the all printer, because I was unable to take the lever in hands without doing that.)

post further comment for more help....
Good Luck!!!

If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.
