SOURCE: How do you replace the bulb on a Kodak Carousel 600?

This post is a few months old but in case this come sup again: Assuming you have a 4000 series projector, withdraw the lamp housing after unplugging the projector. THe kind of clasp will vary a bit but it's more or less in the centre of the lamp housing which is located at the rear, right of the projector. The housing will stop just before you pull it out entirely. If you must, pull it gently but firmly some more, but it's not theoretically required. If you pull it all the way out you'll need to be careful re-inserting it so check out how it slides in and out before removing the whole lamp module.

Over the top of the lamp you will see a metal , bent "spring" that pushes down on the rear of the bulb.The spring terminates over and beside the bulb, hooked into the lamp housing. Press down on it a bit and outward to unhook it. Now don't yank it up but gently and firmly pull it so that the back of the lamp rises with it. You may not see it at this point but there is a corresponding bit of metal spring under the bulb, pushing up on the back of the bulb (where the electrical contacts are). In theory this will bring the bulb up enough to clear the socket and you should see the two electrical contacts (prongs) of the bulb. In practice, sometimes the bulbs stick inside the socket. Replacements sockets are hard to get and can be expensive so if it sticks, easy off a bit on the upward pressure, gently press down a bit on the (cooled) bulb a the back, and try it again.

You may or may not need to put a small finger under the bulb to ease it out of the holder. These weren't the easiest to operate lamp holders!

When inserting a new bulb, just reverse the above, You may want to gently press (too hard may crack the socket!) on the back of the new bulb as it goes into the socket. You want that bulb in there firmly so it doesn't arc electricity, which will corrode the lamp sockets and the bulb's prongs. Be careful to keep the lamp as even (level) as possible when reinserting it so the bulb doesn't crack. On the off chance it does, most times it will still operate satisfactorily as long as the prongs are firlmy in the socket.

SOURCE: we actually have a kodak 600 carousel projector

Given the age of your Carousel Slide Projector, my guess is there is a broken "link" in the slide change mechanism. This "link" is plastic, and connects the cycle solenoid to the slide change mechanism. Over time, the "link" gets brittle & breaks, giving the failure condition you describe. You should consult an Authorized Repair Dealer to see if they can still get parts for your projector, which was built between 1964 and 1972. Best of luck !!

SOURCE: Light won't come on, replaced old light bulb.

First, check to see if the lamp lights at all (spill light coming out of the projector near the fan). If it does, then the problem could be just the "dark shutter" not opening. If the lamp does not light, it could be a couple of things: it could be the lamp thermal fuse has opened or it could be a bad lamp socket.
Sounds like you need to seek out a factory-trained repair dealer for this one, to narrow down the possibilities!

SOURCE: Kodak Carousel Projector 760 H, Carousel will not move

Given the age of your Carousel 760H, the most likely cause is a broken "Link". The "Link" connects the cycle solenoid plunger and the slide change mechanism. The "Link" is made of plastic and gets brittle & cracks over time, rendering slide change non-functional. Parts are still available (www.micro-tools.com), but this is an involved repair is best left to a factory trained technician with a service manual.
