Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies

The slide advance on my Kodak Carousel 750 starts as soon as the machine is turned on with viewing lasting about 1/3 of a second. You can no longer manually or by remote, advance or reverse the slides at your own speed.

There are 2 contacts in the slide change mechanism that control projector cycling. One rotates 360 degrees for every slide change, the other traps the rotating contact and holds it until the forward or reverse buttons are pushed again.
Given the age of the projector, my guess is that one of the 2 contacts are burned off, causing the projector to continuous cycle.
You may be able to gently(!) bend the "J"-shaped contact so that it once again stops the straight contact that rotates 360 degrees per cycle. This is a risky (and temporary) fix.
There are still dealers that are trained to make this repair. There is also a dealer online (www,micro-tools.com) that stocks many projector parts.
But it may be more cost-effective to shop for a gently used projector online (www.vinevalleyimaging.com is a good place to start).
Good Luck !!

Kodak carousel 760h projector


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.

Our Kodak projector 4400 advances the slides too rapidly (1 second or less each slide). This model does not have a variable automatic timer. Any way to slow it down?


The continuous cycle condition is caused by out-of-position cycle contacts. See the attached illustration for the correct position of the cycle contacts.

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 slide projector carousel does not advance


Does the projector run in reverse?? If so, then what you are facing is a timing adjustment.
If it does not cycle in either direction, then there is a high probability that the solenoid "link" is broken. The "link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger to the slide change mechanism.
The good news: There are still parts available (www.micro-tools.com). The less-than-good-news: both fixes are difficult and best handled by a factory-trained repair dealer.

By the sounds of your description, your projector needs an adjustment to the slide change mechanism. This is best done by a factory-trained dealer, who has the service manual. Sorry I can't be of more help. Happy New Year!

Trying to find a carousel that will fit Navitar model CP-300AF


I am pretty sure that the projectors modified, marketed & sold by Navitar were Kodak projector bodies & slide transports. Assuming this is the case, a Kodak 80 Tray should work just fine!

Slide carousel rapide speed


The problem is caused by a mis-adjusted clutch contact. This adjustment requires some dis-assembly, so unless you have service manuals for the Carousel 600, I would recommend you find a factory-trained repair dealer.

Will not advance although nothing is stuck in the machine.


Sounds like what your projector needs is a cycle contact adjustment.
Remove the slide tray & lamp module. Unplug the projector. Turn the projector upside down to remove the bottom cover (6 - T-15 TORX screws). Pry the bottom cover off from the handle side (Be careful!! The power cord is physically secured to the bottom cover!). I have attached an illustration for reference. Near the center of the projector you will find a contact as shown in the illustration. That contact needs to be in the position shown on the pad. You will have to slightly bend the "J"-shaped wire carefully(!!). Then plug the projector in, turn it on & cycle it a few times. The 2 contacts should look like the illustration when at rest. If they don't look like that, unplug the projector, "tweak" the contact wire a little bit more, plug the projector in & try again. This adjustment can take a factory-trained repair tech several bends to get it right (without breaking off the wire!!). Repeat until you are successful! jauburn_8.jpg

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.
