Question about Kodak Carousel 4400 Slide Projector

Focusing into slide transfer box

I am trying to transfer my slides. The projector doesn't focus closer than 2 feet and that makes the image too large for the transfer screen and the picture spill out over the edges. Any fix for this?

Yes, use a shorter projection lens. You didn't say what focal length your projection lens is, but Kodak and many of their OEM vendors made very short focal length lenses.

How do i turn off auto focus?


To strictly turn off the auto-focus, you have 2 options:
1. Some generations of 5600's have an Autofocus On/Off Switch. If so equipped, move the switch to "Off".
2. Remove the bottom cover. Locate the auto-focus motor and clip on of the wires that power the motor.
If repair is what you want to do, the problem becomes more complex and expensive! You will have to contact: www.micro-tools.com
You can order the 2 special tools, instructions and any other parts you need from them. When Kodak stopped supporting the slide projector business, micro tools bought out the remaining repair parts.

Why does autofocus keeps moving in and out on some slides


The autofocus system isn't really "autofocus". It is a measuring system - you manually focus the first slide, which sets the distance from the front of the slide in the gate to the back of the projection lens. By the focus motor moving the projection lens, subsequent slides will maintain that same distance. Continuous focus adjustment suggests that:
1> The curvature of the slide is changing because of the varying heat absorption rate of the transparency.
2> The autofocus system is out of calibration.
3> The autofocus system has a bind (it is being restricted from free operation).
About the only thing a user can do is to make sure ALL slides are oriented the same way in the tray. Beyond that, you will need a service manual and 2 or 3 specialized tools. Parts and tools can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com

Good Luck !! jim

Fix focusing on ektagraphic remote control


Ektagraphic III A did not have remote focus. Someone has probably substituted a remote from a higher functioning model on this projector. The forward / reverse functions on the supplied remote will continue to function correctly, but the focus buttons will not.
Good Luck !! Jim

The auto-focus system in Kodak slide projectors is really an auto-measurement system: One set manually, the system is supposed to maintain that distance on all subsequent slides. Correct orientation of the slides is that they are all placed in the slide tray in the SAME direction (the matte side of the transparency facing toward the screen). The measurement is from the FRONT of the slide transparency to the BACK of the projection lens. REPAIR calibration of the system requires 2 special tools: a RANGE SLIDE and a TARGET SLIDE. These tool slides and the calibration procedure SHOULD be available from: www.micro-tools.com They purchased all remaining repair parts from Kodak when Kodak stopped supporting slide projectors. Good Luck !! Jim

Kodak 5200 focus slide not working


The auto-focus system requires adjustment / set-up with special tools if the auto-focus no longer functions correctly. Before ordering the tools from: www.micro-tools.com
check a couple of things:
1. Is the "Auto-Focus on-off Switch" in the "ON" position?
2. Put a slide that is as dark as possible in the slide gate. Power on, lamp on. Look down into the gate, on the front side of the slide. You should see a "S"-shaped light near the center of the slide.
If you have validated both of the conditions above, then I would contact my friends at micro-tools for the special tools. They should be able to provide you with adjustment instructions.
Good Luck !! Jim

My kodak carousel auto focus 760 carousel does not move but the projector makes a noise when I press the buttons how can I get it to move


Your Carousel 760 Slide Projector is about 45 years old. One of the problems I have seen as Carousel Slide Projectors age is that the plastic parts in the projector get brittle and break. Given your description of the observed condition is that probably either the gear on the focus motor shaft or the gear it interfaces with (or both) that is broken. Given the age of the machine, parts will be tough to locate. Try: www.micro-tools.com
for the best chance to locate those parts. Good Luck !! Jim

Neither of the "trademarks" you mention were used by Kodak, so the lens must be a non-Kodak lens. First of all, remove the lens and look along its side - it should have a rectangular "rack" (dimensions of the "rack" are roughly 1/2 inch by 3 1/4 inches) with gear teeth that will connect with the corresponding gear (inside the projector) on the focus knob shaft. If the lens does not have this "rack", then you should try to find a lens that does. (One source for lenses is www.VineValleyImaging.com). Verify that the lens is on the focus knob shaft and does not appear to be damaged. If the gear on the focus shaft is damaged (or slipping) you will need to contact a Authorized Repair Dealer to see if parts are still available for your specific model. Let me know if you need anything else! Good Luck !! Jim

Apparently you are not using glass slide mounts and your slide is popping in and out of focus. If you feel that it is working abnormally you can send it to service. In the USA Braun service is: HP Marketing Corp. PO Box 715 16 Chapin Rd. Unit 908 Pine Brook, NJ 07058 800-735-4373

I can't comment on the projector, but I can tell you that paper-mounted slide will warp, due to the affects of temperature and humidity. Warped mounts will mess up the auto-focus in any projector.
