Question about Kodak Carousel 4600 Slide Projector
I'm sorry for your presentation embarrassment.
The most common cause of slide jams is the 140-Slide Tray. Because to compartment width was designed to get the maximum number of slides in the defined Carousel circumference, the compartment width that each individual slide fits into is unforgivingly narrow at the hub. If your slides are like mine (and most other peoples), they are probably older. The cardboard mounts begin to de-laminate with age, causing a "dog-ear" effect on the corners of the slide. Because there is no room for out-of-spec slides, they rub on the way down (or the way up). The mechanism keeps chugging along, thinking the slide is in the gate (or back in the tray). Because the slide has slowed it's travel, the jam occurs.
My recommendation is to do one of 2 things: 1. Have your slides re-mounted. or 2. Buy some 80 Slide Trays and transfer your slides into them. You can buy them used in great condition on the internet pretty cheap.
If you have more questions, feel free to ask!! If I have helped, some kind words back to FixYa would be appreciated!!
Good Luck !! Jim

Adjusting the DARK SHUTTER
 Do the removal for the LOWER HOUSING.
 Insert a thin SLIDE into the GATE MECHANISM; the DARK SHUTTER should open.
 Check the the PRESSURE PAD is correctly aligned with the the DARK SHUTTER.
 Bend the PRESSURE PAD to adjust the alignment.
