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: 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

The problem you describe is a timing issue. Because the 760H is so old (about 45 years old), parts availability may be slim to none.... You may be dollars ahead to buy a working projector off the internet.... Try:
Good Luck !! Jim

Dirt or dust accumulation can retard the gear mechanism. If you get Canned Air at WalMart, blow out all open areas and see if you can dislodge the material collected inside.

I used to have a KODAK warranty dealer in New Jersey - - not sure how close to you, though...... Comet Camera & Video Repair in Cherry Hill, NJ 08002; 856-857-9250. I am unsure of the current status of this business, as Kodak stopped authorized repairs of slide projectors in 2007. Good Luck!!

The problem is a plastic "link" that connects a solenoid to the advance mechanism. It gets brittle with age & cracks, yeilding the problem you have. You need to have the "link" replaced.

What is the correct carousel for a kodak 760 H projector?

A KODAK Carousel 760H is designed to be used with either KODAK 140 or KODAK 80 Slide Trays. The KODAK 80 Slide Tray has wider slide compartments, which tend to be more forgiving for older, slightly warped slides.

Carousel on Kodak 760H races

The kodak 760H needs occasional cleaning and lubrication of the mechanism. The grease gets gummy and sometimes siezes the motor as well. Take to service center to get it cleaned properly .

Hope this helps .

My Kodak 760H will not stop once you switch the unit on. It just cycles through the whole carousel and will not pause long enough for you to view the slides. The remote will let you reverse it but it still...

The KODAK Carousel Slide Projector was manufactured from 1971 to 1981 (approximately).
The contact on the slide change mechanism is worn through. If you are lucky, a factory-trained repair dealer may be able to adjust it slightly so that it lasts a few more years.

My Kodak 760H Carousel projector does not advance

do you hear any sounds when you press the button? if not, the button may be malfunctioning. if it doesn't make a sound or movement in reverse either, there is a bad connection between the controls and the solenoids. if it does try to advance and not move the carousel, it's a mechanical problem in the mechanism. usually due to the grease getting sticky from heat and age. take it in for a good cleaning and an adjustment. there are a few cams in there that wear out after a while, too.

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.
