This is a pretty common problem. First, make sure the locking ring on the top of the slide tray is on tight! Next (power off), place a quarter in the center hub of the projector and turn (while lifting the tray). If you have a newer projector it will have a plated slider that you can move with your fingertip, instead of the quarter. Lift the tray off the projector and turn it upside down (now you know why I said "make sure the locking ring on the slide try is on tight"!!). Remove the slide in the gate of the projector and return it to the slot visable through the plate on the bottom of the tray. Keeping the tray upside down, pull back on the short metal spring near the outer edge of the tray. Holding that spring in, rotate the metal plate until it gets to the "zero" location on the tray. Release the spring.
Now turn on the projector (without the tray) and cycle it 3 or 4 times in Reverse (that clears the jam). Replace the tray and you are good to go!!
By the way, closely inspect the corners of your slides. If they are de-laminating, or if the entire slide has a "bow" to it, you will continue to have problems with your 140 Slide Trays. They were designed to hold the absolute maximum number of slides, with very little margin for error. If your slides are like mine, you may be better off moving them to 80-Slide Trays (available cheap and in great numbers used on the internet.
If this has helped you, great!! If you have more questions, please ask!! Please take a minute and give FixYa some positive feedback if I have helped you!
Good Luck !!

Kodak 600 projector has not advance button


You're correct!! The Kodak Carousel 600 does not have an ADVANCE button. To advance the tray you LIGHTLY depress the SELECT bar on the edge of the projector. There is no reverse capability, other than holding the SELECT bar down fully and rotating the tray by hand. Enjoy your projector!! Jim

How to remove a carousel stuck on a Kodak Carousel projector


No problem! FIRST, make sure the locking ring is in place and tight on the top of the tray. Next, locate the center hub (the hole in the center of the tray fits over it). In the center of the hub you will see either a "coin slot" or a small metal lever. Push the lever in the direction it will move and at the same time lift the tray off the projector. If you have a "coin slot), use a quarter to turn the coin slot until the tray is released. Turn the tray upside down, replace any slides that may have left the tray when it became stuck, and rotate the bottom metal plate until it locks in the locating slot. Turn on the projector and cycle it a few times IN REVERSE without a tray on it. this unlocks the jam in the projector. You should be good to go now!! Good Luck !! Jim

When the projector was turned on it started to cycle as when ejecting slides then it stopped and seems to be jammed...the rectangle black screen that opens and closes during the cycle to view slides is...


First of all, remove the tray (use the emergency tray removal in the center hub of the projector). BE CAREFUL not to spill your slides, so before you remove the tray, make sure the tray ring is in position & tight, then when you remove the tray turn it upside down immediately and move the tray plate to the "zero" position. Remove any slides that might be in the gate of the projector. Turn the projector on and cycle the projector 2 or 3 times in Reverse. This should clear a tray/slide jam. Good Luck !!

MODEL 760h WILL NO LONGER ADVANCE SLIDES


The KODAK Carousel 760H was manufactured approximately between 1971 & 1981.
The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". This "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Repair parts are still available, but this is a repair best left to a factory-trained technician. Contact an Authorized Repair Dealer.

We have a Kodak Carousel 650A projector. (140 slide carousel) Cannot advance the slides using the remote or the select bar. Putting in the individual slides with the carousel off the select bar will eject...


The purpose of the "SELECT BAR" on a Carousel 650H is to eject the slide. If you press & hold the select bar it allows you to rotate the tray to the slide you want (or Zero & remove the tray). If you can not advance or reverse the slide tray using either the remote buttons or the buttons on the side of the projector, then chances are you have a broken part in the slide change mechanism. The possibilities are numerous, and really requires a trained tech to analyze your specific failure. Sorry the news isn't better (or simpler!).

Removed carousel midway by lifting release as a slide fell down,


With the tray removed, cycle the projector in Reverse button 5-6 times. If it is just a mechanism jam from removing the tray mid-cycle, this will cure it. To set the tray back to Zero, FIRST make sure the locking ring is in place and tight on the top of the tray. Then turn the tray upside down & release the latch and rotate the bottom plate back to it's home (Zero) location.

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 (www.micro-tools.com). The less-than-good-news: both fixes are difficult and best handled by a factory-trained repair dealer.

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


What's happened is what happens to all that style eventually. There is a small nylon link that has aged and broken in the heart of the mechanism. A very skilled amateur can repair this but it may take a professional. If you are in the USA, start at http://www.kodakparts.com/Pre_1981.html or http://www.fargo-ent.com/kodak.html if you want to try it yourself. It's the same company, basically. If youa re in Canada, go to Doug Banks http://www.photographicrepairs.com/

Kodak Carousel 760H wont advance or reverse


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.
