Help me fix my slide projector (please!)

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Marco Cinnirella, Aug 26, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    While I was fishing out a slide that had gotten stuck in my slide
    projector (a Zeiss Ikon 350IR: similar to the Leica Pradovit range), a
    piece of glass fell out from near the bulb.

    Please see the diagram at the following web page

    The piece that fell out is labelled 'C' on the diagram. I have put it
    back inside the projector but I can't tell which way round it should go:
    should the curved surface be facing the front of the projector as shown
    in the diagram, or should the straight surface be facing the front of
    the projector? I have tried both ways and both seem to work but I would
    like to know which is the correct way! I guess this piece of glass is
    some kind of magnifying lens?

    Many thanks!

    Marco, light doesn't generally care which way it goes through
    multi-element lenses. But it would be best to put it back like the
    diagram shows, though I have not looked at the diagram.
