Yes, if the vertical misalignment is small, say, about less than a tenth of the image size that is misaligned vertically, then try rotating the 'lens' that covers the front left (as viewed from front of camera body, in upright position) rangefinder window.That is, the front RF window near the slow speed setting dial. In order to do so, you will need to unscrew the decorative chrome bezel first. Unscrew in counterclockwise direction. Do not use pliers, etc. to remove bezel, or you will possibly distort and/or mar the chrome finish. Instead wrap bezel with two, or three layers of making tape, making certain masking tape is not contacting the body of the camera, but only the bezel. Usually, bezel can now be unscrewed by hand only; if not, use pliers gently with the masking tape acting to protect the bezel's finish. Once the bezel is off, the lens (it's actually a glass wedge prism) can be rotated using the prongs of a tweezer inserted in the two notches of the brass ring encompassing the 'lens', or glass wedge. First, rotate in both directions, cw and ccw, in small angles to determine which direction and how much wedge rotation is required to bring the two rangefinder images into coincidence vertically. Reassemle in the reverse order.

I don't have a C1, but in all probability it's the EV (exposure value) compensation adjustment, and should be variable between about +2 and -2. Usually the middle/zero/auto/normal (whatever they call it) setting is fine, but sometimes you want to overrule your automatic exposure settings, which are intended for an average-brightness scene. For example, a photo of a dazzling white snow-covered field will probably come out a soft, easy-on-the-eyes light gray unless you kick up the exposure a notch or two. Try taking your camera to an unusually bright/dim location (a beach, inside an old church) and take the same shot five times, with EVs from -2 through 0 to +2. Then look at the resulting photos and decide whether the effects are pleasing/useful or not (warning--sometimes automatic photo processors will try to reset the picture to average when they print the photo, so you may still end up with minimal differences in the shots). A good beginner-level explanation of EV compensation is at <http://www.imaging-resource.com/ARTS/EVCOMP/EVCOMP.HTM>.

Good luck!

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Andrea

Yes you bent the shaft on the knob or the gears inside the focuser. Order another complete focuser from Leica.

Leica c lux 3 system error (zoom) Zoom is stuck.


i read the manual, and they recommend bringing it to a service center, after turning it on and off. Sometimes sand gets stuck in the lens, or sometimes the internal button cell battery goes dead which would disable the zoom. If you feel confident in your component abilities, crack it open and replace that battery.

This is a VERY expensive spotting telescope. I would contact the folks at Company 7, and see if you can return the scope for professional repairs.

OUT OF FOCUS


It appears your camera is in "macro" or "close-up" mode. The obvious solution is to take it out of that and back into normal mode. Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camera, I can't give you detailed instructions on how to do that.

if you check the operation for spliting to a photo tube. PG 49 you can see the procedure for using a camera (there is a control pin on the side of the scope (shown on pg 49) which you have to operate to switch to the camera output... you should then be able to take your photos :) http://www.vashaw.com/assets/84/84original.pdf
