Question about Rolleiflex 3001 35mm SLR Camera

4 Answers

Slide projector help from Rollei- GmbH

As a school teacher who retired some 21 years ago , I still keep the Rollei flag flying even though the slide projectors went into oblivion some 30 years ago. I am aged 75 and am still using the Slide projectors 35A and 37A with its carousel. The lenses i use then in the classroom are Rollei projar (a) 2.8/85 (b)70-120mm (c)1:2.8/85 ISCO lenses , Germany

Using this at home I am forced to keep a distamnce of 29ft where the projected picture on the wall is 40 inches by 60 inches and this is blur. What lens are available to fit my Projecter for a picture half this size like 20 inches by 30 inches. I do not know my optical science rules. Can you help ?

Please forward this problem to the right department knowing you do so to keep a loyal user still going for just a few more years.Email row5oka@singnet.com.sg

    Sorry but I am terribly disappointed with the answer which is realy No answer.I did give the name of the projector. It is a Rollei Model 37A. with carousel. I also mentioned the lenses being used. If you are suggesting a lens its mounting must fit into the present lens holder. The kind thing you did was to give me the German address but WITHOUT their email address which I have been trying to source all this while. Are you suggesting I write to Rollei to solve my problem ? Do I tell them exactly what I told you about lenses used, distance projector from wall screen and size of picture projected on the wall screen ? Please spend some time and read my request that this model is now obsolete , something over 35 years.

    I am terribly disappointed with the service provided. First you do not read the problem. Then after repeating the data you ask me to go to a professional repairer.

    In the first place I think it is not fair you profess to be experts and then disappoint the client after the money is paid. The least you could do is to provde the email addreess of Rollei GmbH in Germany.

    Movng the lens forward or backwards ( clockwise and cunter c ) only helps sharpen projected picture to get sharper.

    What we have here is the size of the pp. It is 60 inches by 45 inches. I am hoping for a pp , half that size.

    Thank you for the email address and the 6 replies in "minutes' separation information dispensation.

    I could do just that , moving the projector closer to the screen.

    I did hovever say that for some reason or other I am forced to keep that distance , 19 feet or so. I was hoping for a lens to do the trick of keeping the distance but reducing the pp size.Thank you .

Hello Row5oka,

this might sound quite simple, but, have you tried to get your slide projector 15 feet colser to the wall, and then try to refocuse the projector?

It seems to me like you can turn the lens counter clockwise to focus farther away and clockwise to focus nearer, is this not true?

This is just going to take some experimentation on your part as documentation and parts for such old equipment will be scarce at best.

    You are talking about Rollei , not Nikon or Canon. Rolley are the Rolls Royce of digital camera. That is the only contact they offer, and the website does not even have an English version. Each Rollei is hand built in a small factory in Germany, and that is the only contact they offer.
    They also does not have any official distribution or support abroad.
    Rollei cameras cost several thousands dollars, they have amateurs clubs all over the world, you can ask them more information.
    Sorry to disappoint you but this is what Rollei is
    If you let me know your location (State) I can try finding a shop that deals with rollei in your area


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 20, 2008

    A Rollei is never obsolete, it is a collector item!
    sell them on ebay, you will earn several hundreds dollars for each item.

    Here is an example:

    The 35A is worth about $300 or more. The projector I don't know, write to one of the Rollei clubs, to find out.

    They did not make available any general customer support email.


    The camera support is : : service@rcp-technik.com
    The projector support is info@franke-heidecke.net

    I do not know if they speak English.

    the website is here click

    If you give me your location (USA, UK etc.) I can find a dealer in your area.
    This is all I can do.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Jul 20, 2008

    Here is the Rollei club forum. My suggestion is to sign up on the Forum and to get in touch with them rather than contacting Rollei.
    Original Rollei lens for your projector will cost several hundreds dollars.
    At the rolley club you can find second hands for a low price.
    I cannot think anything else to help you.

    PS.If you have any other request post it here, possibly without challenging experts at every post. And possibly provide information on your location.

    Many thanks.

I cannot retract the lens back to my Rollei 35 se


Your question seems to be mis-categorized under slide projectors, if you are asking about Rollei 35 SE camera, the lens will only retract if you cock the shutter with the wind lever, then press the button next to the shutter release and rotate the lens a few degrees.

Kodak 750h slide projector; brand new bulb, but it won't turn on/light up? Could it be the lamp socket? I did open the machine up, and there is a ceramic part; thermal fuse? resitor? or Solenoid??? Not...


If the lamp is new, then your problem is caused either by the lamp socket that the lamp slides into, or the lamp thermal fuse.
The white part over the fan is a dropping resistor, which allows the projector to operate in the "LOW LAMP" position of the power switch.
A factory-trained service dealer can help you locate the parts or (better suggestion) isolate & repair your projector.
