Can 140 trays work? anyone tried?

I always see reference to the 80 capacity trays being used on these units. Can the 140 capacity tray also be used safely? Does Elmo state anywhere that the 140 trays are NOT to be used? Thank you.

The 140-trays do not work smoothly. They advance differntly and the slides jam. I had to transfer more than 2000 slides from 140-carousels to 80 carousels in order to finish the job. You might try transvie trays, which work more smoothly, but you risk damaging the mechanism.

Kodak slide tray mechanism


The Carousel 140 Trays were manufactured as "one-timers" - - - that means (unlike the Ektagraphic 80 Slide Tray), there are no adjustments, no replacement parts, and are not designed for re-assembly.... I am sorry to have to tell you that. My recommendation would be to buy a replacement tray (don't worry - - they are cheap) from a dealer who still has 140 trays (try www.vinevalleyimaging.com )
Good Luck!! Jim

Lift gate tray


No. The slide tray should rotate when the forward or reverse buttons are pushed. Slides are not required for correct actuation of the tray. Before attempting any adjustment, try a few different trays (it may be a tray issue!). A 140-slide tray will be much tougher to get correct movement from than with a 80-slide tray on an older slide projector.... The 140 tray pushes the interface specification between a tray & a projector to the max.

Kodak 140 slide carousel trays jam


The 140 tray with older slides and an older projector is a gamble with slide jams every time!! Slides have a natural curve that gets bigger over time. In addition, as slides age, the corners will begin to de-laminate (aka: "dog-eared" slide). Because the slide slot in a 140-tray is SO NARROW, the least little deformation of the slide from normal will cause the slides not to drop. My recommendation, given the age of the projector, trays and slides, is to get rid of those 140 trays and stick with 80-slide trays. Good Luck !! Jim

Will slides back from 1960 work in a Kodak Carousel Slide Projector?


As long as the slide film is in 2"x2" mounts, yes! I would advise you to use an 80-slide tray as opposed to a 140-slide tray. The individual slide compartments in an 80-slide tray are wider, making it more forgiving to older, possibly warped slides. 80-slide trays can still be purchased from: www.vinevalleyimaging.com. Good Luck! Jim

My Kodak Carousel projector 850H, after an extended period of non-use, will no longer advance or reverse slides. I have tried several trays, both 80 capacity and 140 capacity, with the same result: there...


Back when I had a Carousel projector, I used 80-slide trays exclusively because the 140-slide trays were very prone to jamming, especially with cardboard mounts. With long storage, even in its case, the projector change mechanism may have become corroded or lubricant may have dried out. If you are using the hand control, it may have developed dirty contacts.

The lever that drops the slides gets stuck in the 'up' position when the carousel is on the projector but it works fine when there is no carousel attached. When it gets stuck you have to take the carousel...


If you are using a 140 tray with older slides, that's very logical! Over time, slides develop a "side-to-side curve". Because the Carousel 140 tray stretches the design limits of the projector to be able to accurately return the slide to the tray, the slightest bend or "dog-ear"(the fraying of the corner of the slide) will cause exactly the problem you're having. If you have a Kodak 80-Slide tray, try it. Chances are that it will work fine. If it does work fine, then you have 2 options: 1. Move all your slides into Carousel 80 Trays.
2. Have your slides re-mounted (that is, have the paper mounts replaced).
I hope this helps !!

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.

What size tray doe the Elmo TRV-35H use? What mfg is comparable?


It uses a standard 80 slide Kodak Carousel or comparable tray. Transvue works the best. Sometimes I can coax the Elmo to use a 140 slide tray, but the slides sometimes jam.
