I need a new compass for tasco 322 BCW waterproof binoculars. Any ideas where I can find one?


Open the battery door, clean all inside with Alcohol & Q-tip. Check that the AG10 or 389 batteries are positive up. Now the compass dial pivots on a shaft. It seems to get caught. Take a strong magnet and rotate it above the compass lying horizontal and spin it until it spins freely. Take it away slowly. Does the compass settle down to accurate heading? If so place back in the top of the model 322BCW observing the glued in marks on the clear window area. Re-screw in, press brass button red LED should light.. If NOT recheck for corrosion. Regards, Don

The eyepiece lenses have something on the inside. Can they be removed for cleaning?


  1. Carefully clean your binoculars by firstly removing any dirt or dust from the main body and straps using a soft microfibre cloth. Avoid the lenses at this point using any form of cloth on the lenses before removing all dirt and dust particles first could destroy them.
  1. Gently remove all traces of grit, dirt or dust particles from the lenses using a soft lens brush or canned air specifically designed for the purpose.
  1. Waterproof binoculars can be rinsed gently under a tap but be sure to use on lightly running water, avoid high pressure water as it could damage your binoculars.
  1. Gently remove any remaining marks using lens cleaning tools such as a lens pen or lens cleaning fluid and lens tissue. Do not be tempted to use kitchen towel or anything else lying around that is slightly rough and may scratch the surface of the lens, only use a lens pen, lens tissue or a lens cloth. Gently wipe the lens using a circular motion working from the centre of the lens to the outer edge. NEVER apply lens cleaning fluid directly onto the glass (always apply to the cloth) and always ensure that the lens cleaning fluid you are using is recommended for the type of lens coatings that have been applied to your binoculars (Do not use general household glass cleaning products or products designed to clean computer screens or glasses. Such products could destroy the lens coatings of your binoculars if used).

The yoke holding the eye pieces to the main body have broken where can i buy a new set


Broken yokes are by far the overwhelming single cause of binocular failure and in this case you unfortunately you have no chance of replacing the assembly.

Tasco products were an assortment of whatever products they could get at the lowest prices from whichever factory worldwide. As such, there wasn't really any comprehensive spares back up to start with. Tasco just stuck their badges and packaging on and put a large enough margin on what they sold to comfortably cover the inevitable warranty claims which all brands will encounter. In practice, Tasco's warranty claims were basically dealt with by chucking incoming faulty goods into the bin and sending out a replacement.

Yokes simply were not available as spares on the vast majority of models. Poor design, materials and workmanship apart, Tasco's line was that they only ever broke due to misuse (usually a fall) so they weren't effectively covered by the warranty.

Tasco no longer exist except as a brand name, Bushnell now own the brand (in my opinion they have a similar product sourcing policy to Tasco) and there is now no official spares back up for any Tasco models manufactured before they purchased the company.

Sadly this leaves you with just one solution: bin them and buy new. The yoke cannot be fixed as the point at which it breaks has a very high mechanical loading and a very small cross section; even if you did find an adhesive up to the job, you'd just end up with a solid but bent yoke which will break as soon as you try to straighten it.

Sorry, but not everything is realistically fixable, but I hope that my reply has been of some assistance to you.

I have an old tasco 7x-15x35 zoom binocular. model #100. I lost the right rubber eye cup. Where can I purchase a replacement from........Thanks


You can't.

Tasco optical products are very cheaply made items, usually bought direct from whichever factory already makes the same or a similar model and then Tasco have their badges and packaging added.

They are consumer grade models which are not designed with longevity or repairs in mind; they're worth little when new and almost without value as used items.

The only repairs which can be done are by Tasco themselves whilst their products are under warranty. Except for the most minor of repairs, a warranty claim will simply involve exchanging the faulty item for a new one as any labour expended in repairs will often cost Tasco more than the wholesale price of a new unit.

Your only fixes are to live with the missing eyecup; to visit a binocular repair shop (not exactly commonplace) and see if you can buy an eyecup which can be adapted by yourself to fit; or to replace yours with another pair. You'll usually find that there are plenty for free on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group but they'll often have the even worse fault of a broken eyepiece yoke. But the price is right so it doesn't really matter if you have to collect five or six pairs before getting a good pair...

With all due respect, 7x-15x35 are going to be optically atrocious, so replacing your current pair is not a bad idea.

Eyecup part for Tasco binocular - 7x35


Eyepiece cushions for binoculars, telescopes, microscopes ... are all about the same size (Because our eyes are all about the same size!), and can be easily made from bicycle inner-tube material of the appropriate diameter. Measure the outside diameter of the eyepiece and ask a bike shop for the right tube inside diameter; a few mm smaller. Cut a section about twice the "depth" of the cushion you wish to have, roll the section over itself and stretch it around the eyepiece with the uncut (rolled) edge uppermost.

Tasco OS36 Binoculars battery replacement


The screw you removed holds the battery cover in place. The cover is roughly rectangular with rounded corners. Once the screw is out, gently insert a sharp blade into the hairline crack between the cover and the binocular body and pry the cover off. The two watch batteries will be obvious.
