Question about Wesco WS7 Microscope

1 Answer

Double vision I recently took apart my WESCO 3000 series microscope to fix a slipping adjustment on the zoom control. After taking it apart to far, removing the lenses from the little shafts. I put it back together and now the left eye and right eye see something different. The left eye image seems to be a little bit larger on up to the left and the right eye image is slightly smaller down to the right. So when you look through both lenses you go cross eyed. Not sure how to fix?

It looks like when you took this apart you did not alignt the lenses properly, there should be a locating groove or stub which these lenses should fit to... it looks like they are pressing against the stub but are not located properly, hence the distortion. try taking it apart again....when you put it back together again the fault may have gone.

Auto trans gear selector missreads

There is a string/cable that goes from the shifter to the instrument panel the controls where the needle points. Your's sounds like it is slipped. These are a pain to replace and you better find one before taking apart everything. You have to remove the column bezel and the instrument cluster to fix this. There is an adjustment for this, but your's is to far out. Plus when adjusting the parts usually break, made of plastic. I would just live with it.

The autofocus is not working. I tried going to manual focus and this won't work either. Also when I try to zoom out it will only let me go about a qauter of the way then it stops, and won"t zoom out...

Was it recently dropped or bumped in any way? The focus and zoom motors are not activating or limiting. It could be misaligned or slipping gears. Listen for motor running as you press the appropriate function - such as manual focus or zoom. If you hear anything then the motor are running but not adjusting the lens - therefore the gear is loose and/or the motor is slipping. It must be taken apart to repair.

Mine does the same thing. I took it apart and found that one of the microscopic plastic gears in the zoom assembly had a few teeth broken off. If you like to tinker and if you can find a replacement assembly, it shouldn't be too hard to fix. I'm still looking for parts, though.

The small knob that moves the slideto the left or right on the platform (the one furthest from the observer) is slightly loose, and instead of rotating in a smooth circular motion it rotates rather...

The knob you are talking about is called the x-axis control knob. It does not directly affect the focus. What affects the focus is the slight manipulation of the stage and or slide while you are adjusting the x-axis control knob. It only takes the slightest pressure to throw the focus off very far. Theoretically you could completely remove the specimen holder and move the slide around with your fingers.
The specimen holder may need to be replaced but without further more detailed knowledge of the mechanical problem I cannot instruct further.

Image appears double and slighly off when viewing

I was having a double vision problem with my Barska 10-30X50 zoom, 195FT/100YDS binoculars. One image was always higher than the other. This was tolerable at low zoom, but was further aggravated the more I zoomed in. I found that I could grasp both barrels and twist them in opposite directions (one side up, the other side down) and force the two images to merge--but that was a strain and an unpleasant viewing experience. As an experiment, while looking through the binoculars, I grasped the far end of the right barrel and twisted it on its axis. Nothing happened at first, but after a certain amount of resistance it began to rotate independently of the body. Lo and behold, this shifted the barrel's axis, and the image for that eye moved vertically! I turned it until the two images merged, and now I'm thrilled to say that the problem is solved! I don't have a clue if this would work on any other brand or model, but it's worth a try!

Putting it back together

In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.
