You can use an ENH lamp which is 250 watts. it costs more (shop around- margins are high on lamps) but lasts an average of 175 hours vs the 300 watt ELH lamp at 35 hours.

You can also get ELH and ENH lamps from Wiko and Fuji in a "-5" version, ie ELH-5. It's built for 125 volts rather than the typical actual house voltage of 110-120 v. This allows them to burn much longer. There is a marginal lowering of light output in these forms.

SOURCE: ekatagraphic slide projector that won't advance the carosel forward or backward. it will pop a slide up and down. it sounds jammed it humms when buttons are depressed any ideas?

The most common causefor the failure of the slide tray to advance or reverse is the breakageof this small Link (part # 217769). It fits on the end of the solenoid actuator arm and is held in place by a Rivet (part # 159943). Thereplacement of this part does not take a rocket scientist, however, amoderate mechnical aptitude skill is required.
This Set contains 1 Link and 1 Rivet. If your projector Does NOT have a focus motor in it, then this is the kit for you. If your projector does have a focus motor, please order "KODAK-KIT" From:

A common cause for that problem is a broken plastic "link" on the solenoid (Kodak part #217769). There are repair shops who can replace this part. It is very difficult to replace by yourself.

Sorry, I don't have a solution for you, but am in the same boat, with a model AF70 and another earlier model, both off eBay, with the same problem as yours. Trying to get a replacement for my father because he enjoys looking at the family slides (he's 74 ). I'll keep in touch if I find a solution and hope you do the same!

SOURCE: I bought a used kodak

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.

600 wont rotate 140 slide tray

I am assuming you are referring to a Kodak Carousel 600 Slide Projector?? If so, the problem is the cycle solenoid link. The link connects the cycle solenoid to the cycle lever. It is made of plastic, and because of the age of your machine, it has gotten brittle and cracked, making moving a slide tray impossible. The bad news: If you are not VERY familiar with slide projectors and have access to a service manual, this is an extremely difficult repair. The good news: While Kodak has stopped selling repair parts, you can still buy slide projector parts from:
My advice: Find a authorized repair dealer and have this repair done for you! Good Luck !!

Kodak 750h Projector - The Carousel won't advance when the level is pushed?

If the projector fails to change slides in forward or reverse, then chances are that your projector has a broken cycle solenoid link. The link connects the slide change (cycle) solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time the link (made of plastic) gets brittle and cracks. The good news is parts are still available ( The bad news is this is a difficult repair and usually requires a service manual and a factory-trained repair dealer. Good Luck!!

My kodak 600H projector tray will not move to the release position? any suggestions.

You may just have a slide jam (particularly common with older slides in 140-Slide Trays).
First of all, you need to get the tray removed. At the center of the tray is the hub, and an emergency tray release slot. Make sure the slide tray locking ring is in place and tight(!), then insert a quarter in the emergency tray release slot and turn, lifting the tray at the same time. One slide will probably fall out. Replace the slide in the tray with the same orientation as the other slides in the tray (markings, slide#, etc.). Then with the tray upside down (now you see why I told you to make sure the slide tray locking ring was in place and tight), rotate the metal bottom plate back to the "zero" position.
Once the tray is removed, cycle the projector 4 or 5 times, then re-insert the tray. If the problem persists, you may have warped slides (get them re-mounted or be sure to use 80-Slide Trays rather than 140 Slide Trays), or you could have a jammed slide change mechanism. And because we're talking about a Model 600H here, it may be cheaper to buy a used projector online than have it repaired. Good Luck !!

Kodak 750H corousel slide projector remote and on projector buttons not advancing slides. Just hums.

Chances are, by your description (and my estimate of the age of this model of projector), that you have a broken solenoid "link". The "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. The "link" is made of plastic, and gets brittle & cracks over time. This is a difficult repair, but you should still be able to find parts available. My advice is have this repair done by a factory-trained repair dealer and your projector will run another 20 years.

I am looking for slide projectors for my customer. The q'ty of order is 1K. I want ot know if this product has been phased out or not? If no, where I can buy from Taiwan? Thanks for your time and reply.

Hello. The new version is called a multimedia projector. I believe you will have a difficult time trying to locate 1000 of the old slide projectors; and why would you want to invest in old technology? I would recommend that the customer consider the multimedia projector compatible with any computer. J.

Kodak 750H and 760H neither will advance carolsel without manual

This is a common problem with older projectors like this. There is a "link" that connects the slide cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. The "link" is plastic and gets brittle & cracks with age, rendering cycling non-functional. this is a difficult repair, but parts are still available. I recommend you contact an factory-trained repair dealer to get your projectors repaired.

My slide projector carousel does not advance

Does the projector run in reverse?? If so, then what you are facing is a timing adjustment.
If it does not cycle in either direction, then there is a high probability that the solenoid "link" is broken. The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism.
The good news: There are still parts available ( The less-than-good-news: both fixes are difficult and best handled by a factory-trained repair dealer.
