Open Question

I have a kodak carousel 860h slide projector. The slide tray will not advance or reverse when I press the forward or reverse levers in back of the projector. I can advance the tray manually when I press the tray release button on top and help it along... the slides will drop down and be shown on the screen, but I have to then press the button on top to get the tray advance to the next slide. Any advice is appreciated. The problem developed when I tried to force the tray one time when the index slot on a tray was not aligned up correctly. Gene

SOURCE: Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse

Yeah. I like the $15 fix better. Go to Ebay and search for "Kodak Carousel Projector Advance Repair Kit". Before you purchase you can diagnose, and it comes with detailed instructions. The same guy also has a kits for other common problems, as well as the "tune up kit". Or you can buy the Solenoid Link, directly and try it without detailed instructions.

SOURCE: My Kodak Ektagrafic AF-1 Projector

The KODAK Ektagraphic AF-1 was manufactured from approximately 1971 to 1981.
The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, which gets hard, brittle & could break over time.
Parts are still available, but the repair process is a intricate one. My best advice is to seek out an Authorized Repair Dealer.

SOURCE: problems with using a 140 carousel on a Kodak 4600

There is nothing wrong with your slide trays. Your projector needs an adjustment to the cycle contact assembly. The constant cycle mode is a dead-giveaway. You need to take the projector to an Authorized Repair Dealer for this adjustment. Should be relatively quick - - it takes longer to get the case apart than to make the repair!

SOURCE: I just purchased an older Kodak slide projector

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!

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.

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

Try turning your projector on without a slide tray. Cycle it 2 or 3 cycles in reverse. Place the tray back on the projector and cycle forward. By cycling it a few times in reverse, it re-sets the cycling mechanism.

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.

I bought a used kodak 650 carousel slide projector and i can't get the slide tray to load. Is it because it came with a 140 slide tray instead of an 80 slide tray?


The KODAK Carousel 650 was manufactured approximately between 1964 and 1971.
Try removing the tray and pressing the cycle button(s) on the side of the projector. Watch the levers in the cut-out on the top of the projector. The lever closest to the rear of the projector should move back & forth (as you actuate the cycle buttons). The lever toward the front of the projector should extend and push forward (front of the projector) when you push the "forward" button, & extend and push toward the rear in reverse. If you are not seeing these levers move as described, then the chances of your projector needing a repair are likely. The good news: parts are still available. The bad news: You will have to find a factory-trained repair dealer to make the repairs for you.

Will Not advance or go back with remote


If you have another Slide Tray (preferably an 80-slide tray), try that. If it exhibits the same failure with another tray, then you have one of 2 problems: either a mechanical problem that is preventing the direction lever to advance or reverse the tray; OR you have an electrical problem - the low voltage that controls the advance circuitry is either too low or not present. Either way, you need an KODAK Authorized Repair Dealer to help you sort this out.

Tray will not advance


The problem you describe is most likely a broken spring on the lever that moves the tray forward or reverse. The repair requires dis-assembly of the projector and the slide change mechanism and adjustment after re-assembly. I recommend you contact a factory trained repair dealer to make the repair.

My kodak carousel slide projector model 750h will not operate in the forward position. What could be the problem and how much to repair?


If reverse and select modes work correctly, it could require a slight adjustment of the cycle solenoid or (worst case) it may be a broken spring on the slide tray advance lever. To pinpoint the cause of your problem, take your projector to a factory-trained repair dealer.
