    Hi all,

    I'm a Master's student for conservation and restoration for modern and contemporary art in the University of Amsterdam. I'm writing a thesis about the conservation of slide projectors used in installations. While Kodak have stopped producing projectors back in 2004, artists and photography enthusiasts still use them. But the knowledge of how to maintain and repair them is slowly disappearing.

    for this reason, I'm trying to first map out the most common failures that people encounter while using slide projectors.
    So, if you have any experience of working with these machines, please answer the following questions:

    1. What model of slide projector have you used?
    2. What are the most common malfunction you have encountered while working with slide projectors?
    3. What are the weak spots of the projectors in your opinion?

    Thank you very much!
