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

    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 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

    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.

Camera saying memory card locked slide lock write psition


The Nikon N75 is a film camera. It doesn't use a memory card at all.

If you're referring to some other digital camera that does use an SD/SDHC card, look at the memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Which film in nikon f3?


The Nikon F3 uses standard 35mm film, also known as 135. The type of film you use is up to you. You can use black&white film, color transparency (color slides), or color negative (color prints). Prints are generally cheaper than slides but slide films generally produce better results, and prints can be made from slides. You can also make black&white pictures from color films, though obviously you can't go the other way.
These films are available in a variety of speeds. Faster films let you shoot in lower light and/or with a faster shutter speed for stopping action, but slower films have finer grain. Different films also have different color properties. No film (or digital sensor, for that matter) reproduces every color exactly. You may need to experiment in order to see which film gives you the colors you like for the types of pictures you like to take.

My Canon AE-1 was working fine but I recently loaded a new roll of film, pushed the advance film lever and it worked fine, went to shoot and the shutter would not fire. It's not the battery as I only...


That fault is typical of the AE1 and closely related models such as the AT1.

First, try seeing if the camera works without the lens attached. If so, then the lens needs attention.

Otherwise, your camera is around thirty to forty years old and needs a thorough CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust). The internal lubricant films have dried-out and gummed up the workings. Also the foam light seals and mirror buffer will have either decayed to a sticky corrosive goo or will have gone further and dried out completely, falling away as black powder or gluing some parts together.

A professional CLA and a one-off foam replacement (modern material does not decay) isn't particularly cheap and far exceeds the residual value of the camera. But once it's done the camera should be good for many more years and there are huge numbers of high quality dirt-cheap lenses for it. Shoot on film or slide and scan the images and you have results which will still give any full frame dSLR a run for it's money.

Try to use a Canon specialist as they'll have scrap examples of your camera to cannibalise if spare parts are needed, but that model is really well made and unless you're unlucky then you should get away with a CLA and new foam.

Alternatively, unrestored examples are commonplace and cheap/free, so it's not a bad model to gain your own experience on if you're confident with electro-mechanical devices (the simpler AT1 is a better model to start learning on though as it has far less electronic parts). If you ruin it in the process then you gain experience and spare parts for the next attempt.

Good luck.

Hello! I've got a Minolta X -700, it's pretty old, but I got it to work a few months ago just by replacing the battery. Now, when I turn it on and pull the advance back, the shutter still...


This is an electronic failure in the cameras shutter release mechanism. Capacitors will need to be replaced and circuit boards need to be cleaned of the electrolytes that have leaked onto them. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Hi, I have a Rollei SLR with a dead light-meter, which I would like repaired. I'm in England, can you suggest anywhere? It's an SL35-M. Thanks!


Getting your meter repaired may be an issue. The SL-35M used a CdS light meter, which nobody really used after the 70's, and they contained toxic cadmium, which has been banned for use in most places, which means these metering cells are no longer manufactured for repair market. They were on the verge of being banned in late '05, so I'd assume by now they're long gone. If you shop around, you may be lucky enough to find some shop to have another Rollei they can scrounge a working meter out of - thats assuming the cell is even the issue (have you checked the battery?).

To venture a guess, I'd look online for shops, since most shops dealing with film cameras and their repair have closed their doors in the last 5-10 years with the propogation of digital. You may have better luck contacting Rollei directly, but who knows. Japan has a HUGE affinity for film and film cameras, so if you're able and willing to ship your camera around the world, and can find someone, that may also be a viable option, again you'll need to look online and try to contact a shop to see what they're able to handle.

Expect anywhere from $125-200US for a meter repair.

Battery pack for Rolliflex 3003? How to replace/repair


First try a "Batteries Plus" type store - you'd be surprised what they have. If that doesn't work you may have to try getting some eager tech school students to build you a special circuit that will "step down" the voltage from a higher voltage battery and use a wired connection to the contacts. Also please provide a review of the camera - it seems like a great 35mm camera.

Cannot open Zeiss Icon Tenax camera. Please tell me how to do this.


I think this camera actually has a back that is a separate piece. It is removed by turning 2 "keys" on the bottom of the camera itself, then it will slide off. The operative word here is "think". It is an educated guess based on working in a camera store many, many years ago. good luck
