Question about Bushnell "Insta-Focus" Binoculars

Open Question

Bushnell Sportview Compact 8x30 focusing problem. Won't tune??

Can't tuneup. I attempt to adjust by covering right barrel and using central focus, objects never come in clear, so I can't go on to cover left barrel and adjust the diopter either. Is there something else I need to know?

SOURCE: Insta-Focus focusing problem

first open and close the binoculars untill they fit you eye width,now adjust left eye with the flat section located on the center hinge,now turn right eyepiece till clear. note: once you have adjusted right eyepiece you only have to leave it in that position in order to focus from near and far.........good luck......larry@reichinstruments.com

SOURCE: bushnell insta-focus mechanism gets stuck.

they were famous for that, because the screwpin that holds the eyepice shaft is metal and the groove that it rides in is plastic, and eventually gets jammed....look where you put your fingers to adjust eyepieces. should be small metal plate in center of hinge(sometimes with bushnell logo) that will simply pry off by using small screw driver,and now you will be able to see if the screw is loose or damaged. good luck...larry@reichinstruments.com

SOURCE: The diopter setting eyepiece has come out of the

The entire diopter setting eyepiece was off.I separated the eye cup from the rest of the diopter setting eyepiece, and aligned the channel guides on the lens piece to slide it into place. Then holding it in place, taking care not to gum up the lens, I experimented with how to screw in the retainer ring so that its white dot registered correctly. Finally reattach the eye cup and focus. It's like new!

8x25 minolta compact bionoculars center focus knob will not turn. Have taken screw off center knob and removed 4 rubber strips on bionocular body and looks like allen? screw underneath. No obvious way...


They don't make these things easy to take apart, or fix. Here's your best shot- take it into a camera repair shop, and see what they say. Some tech might know what you have to do to get it apart, or if it can come apart without damage or special tools.
Unfortunately, only the repair techs know how, and there aren't too many (if any) of them, since they often just charge a set amount and send a refurbished or new pair to the customer.
Wish I had a more specific answer, but good luck to you, and with just a bit, you'll figure this out.

Sight adjustments


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that very same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

That was nice of Bushnell to do that. They didn't have the software available online as well as the manual on their website. I did find this support page:

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello,
I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.
