Kodak Carousel Projectors use 3 families of projector bulbs:

Earlier Carousel Projectors - the Carousel 500, Carousel 550, and the models from 600 to 850 that do not end with an "H" - use either a DEK bulb or a CBA. The DEK looks like an old radio tube. Click on the bulb name for a direct ordering link.

Middle series Carousel Projectors - the Carousel 600-H,  to 860-H with model numbers that end with an "H" - use an ELH. The ELH looks like radar reflector. Click on the bulb name for a direct ordering link. The ENH bulb is a longer-lived version of the ELH. Not quite as bright and more expensive but it lasts about twice as long. Excellent if you're doing slide to digital transfers.

The final series of Kodak Carousel projectors - models 4000, 4200, 4400, 4600, 5200, 5600 - use an FHS bulb. This is an 82 volt bulb that looks like radar reflector. Click on the bulb name for a direct ordering link.

Here's how to change the lamp in your Kodak Carousel Projector

The modern DYY/EGH bulb is a better, less expensive substitute for the DAY and DAT and DAK bulbs used in Sawyers 35mm slide projectorsAlmost all Sawyers slide projectors made for US distribution can all use the DAY/DAK/DAT series of bulbs, which look like an old radio tube. Sawyers also made projectors under the Sears, Tower, Minolta, Nikkormat and Miranda names.

The DAY/DAK bulb is 500 watts and the DAT/DAK is 400 watts. Those same projectors can also use a quartz-halogen bulb which burns longer and stays brighter during its life.

There is no reason not to use the later bulb design. (shown to the right) It has the same base and the same filament position. Originally it cost a lot more than the now-discontinued DAY/DAT/DAK bulbs. When we can get the older bulbs, they now actually cost more than the better replacement bulb - the DYY/EGH bulb.

A small number of Sawyer's projectors designated "AQ" models use a different bulb, the FBG/FBD bulb.

Notice that it has only two pins on the base. If your projector uses the FBG/FBD bulb you can order it here.

The back of the projector, near the power switch, usually has a plate that tells what bulb is recommended.

Here's a guide to changing bulbs in Sawyers projectors.

Other Projection bulbs: We stock over 140 models, even many that are no longer in production.

The 3-letter code is a unique and complete description of a bulb. Any manufacturer's FHS bulb will replace any other manufacturer's FHS bulb. We stock mostly EIKO brand because they fill orders better than anyone else! If you already know the 3-letter code you can order on line.

Note that we stock a lot of bulbs and you can either page through the alphabetical listing or use the search box:

 If you don't know the 3-letter code, email us or call 803 641-0501 and be ready with this information::

A) the 3 letter code (DAY, ELH, CDX, and so forth) or
B) the exact make and model of your projector.

Most bulb orders fall under our $6.99 flat rate shipping program for Priority Mail, $7.99 for UPS ground.

Small bulbs orders shipped to Canada are a flat rate of $8.99. We've found that no matter what the post offices claim as delivery time, they'll take longer than they should!

Most of our bulbs are available using our automated shopping cart system. 

Wondering how to change the bulb in your projector? We've got illustrated directions for Kodak Carousel and Sawyers slide projectors, with more to come!

Kodak doesn't make slide trays for Carousel projectors any more. We hunt down used Carousel 140 and Carousel 80 trays so you don't have to.

Kodak gave up that business too soon. There are still consumers who want and need Carousel slide trays, so we try to keep good used ones in stock.

We also try to maintain a stock of trays for other projectors.
