    Model number 4400.. It's been in the closet for 10 years... the problem
    with it is: Not all of the slides drop fully into place.. that's it. Any
    advice? Thanks Joel

    Probably just needs cleaning. - It's gravity feed, and slides are pretty
    light. Any dust, cobwebs, pieces of cardboard, etc. That get down into the
    slot will cause your problem.....Try some compressed air, or a q-tip soaked
    in alcohol......

  3. I have an old Kodak projector that had problems feeding slide from the drum.
    I found it wasn't the projector - it was the slides. I was using a high
    capacity drum (140), and when I tried the "stock" model (80), the slides
    would drop much better in the wider slots. I guess a few had warped with
    time.

    If you have a 140 slide capacity tray on it, that could be the problem.
    The slots are a little smaller and if you have slides that are not 100% good
    shape and thin enough, they will tend to stick.

    Regretfully concur. I though the new plastic mounts would be more imune
    to 'sticking' in the 140's, but I have had a couple warped mounts refuse
    to drop. The 80's rarely (ever?) have this problem...

    Slides don't drop fully...

    The most likely cause of slides not dropping or not dropping fully is the SLIDE, not the projector. Because slides are mounted (usually) in paper mounts, they are affected by heat, cold and humidity. These environmental conditions will warp or bow a slide mount. The best (and cheapest) way to solve this problem is to put your slides in an 80-slide tray (as opposed to an 140-slide tray). The slide compartments in an 80 tray are much wider, and therefore more forgiving of slight warps in slide mounts. I hope this helps!
