Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
In a word - Yes.
What has happened is that the clutch spring in the slide change mechanism is not being captured after one rotation of the slide change mechanism camstack (which equals one slide change) by the clutch contact wire. This is usually because the clutch spring has burned (electrical arcing) off or the "J"-shaped clutch contact wire that is supposed to stop it has a notch worn (or burned) in it, allowing the clutch to pass through, creating the endless cycling problem.
I would suggest you find a reputable factory-trained repair dealer to assess your projector. They will be able to tell you if it is adjustable or repairable. Parts are no longer available from Kodak for projectors of any vintage, but you can contact: www.micro-tools.com They have an amazing stash of parts to fix most projectors. If it turns out to be not worth it to repair, there are many projectors for sale on the internet in nice condition fairly cheap!
I hope this helps! If not, please ask!! I spent a career designing, building & repairing these electro-mechanical jewels. If it has helped, please give me some positive feedback back to FixYa. THANKS ! jim
