Kodak Carousel projector service?
Author: dmaffei

Anyone know of a good place to service and repair these old dinosaurs? Call me old school, but yes I still enjoy an old fashioned slide show? SF Bay Area preferably, Thanks

It might be easier to buy on one Ebay to replace it.  I bought three Kodak Ektagraphic IIIA projectors on Ebay a couple of years ago to keep as spares.  All three were in near mint condition and in the $75-100 range each before shipping.  I just checked and there are a number of them listed there now.

You also might want to lay in a supply of bulbs.  I don't see anybody bothering to do the development of a LED replacement with anywhere near the same color fidelity.

Google shows at least 30 repair shops in the SF Bay Area.  And Yelp has consumer comments on many of them.

Thanks for your replies. I ended up taking it to a local shop that has a tech on staff. See what he says. If he can service and replace the advance part that breaks on all these, I may do it. If you YouTube carousel repair, you'll see the common slide advance failure on these.

Last time I had one of those apart, long time ago, I recall much of the mechanism was plastic.  If the same part, or small number of parts, commonly break(s) somebody has likely created a file for a 3D printer to make the needed part(s).

There is a replacement part for the tray advancer, (on eBay) but it is a PIA to replace. I think there is a guy on Youube that shows you how to fix it. I bought the part but have yet to work on it.
