    If its like the Kodak model then it's a carrosel style projector. You need to load the slides in the carrosel and mount it. Then look at the buttons (one should be for turning on) The one that looks like a backwards C with a line in it.

    The other buttons opperate the slides in forward and reverse. Also it looks to have AF (thats auto focus). Or you can focus it yourself by rotating the lens. There is also one set of buttons for "zoom" so you can fit it to your secreen.
    Good Luck and let us know how it worked out for you.

    I have no idea if you are still looking for information but I have a Sears Automatic 500 Operating Manual. Please let me know and I can probably scan mine and send you a copy.

    Dear dvadala-I have the same issue-I just bought one and the seller (grandson of the original owner) couldn't figure out how to make it work but I bought it on review. Lotta damn buttons on it. I know this is two years after your post but thought I'd take a shot at your generous offer.. Thanks, Mike >Phone number removed per site rules<
