Question about Konica Minolta Activa Sport (8x25) WP Binocular

1 Answer

The central wheel between the eye pieces is frozen

The model I have is a Minolta MK 8 X 40. It is an old model and I dropped it and now it will not focus anymore. Is there anything I can do to repair it.

    No, I didn't drop it hard. I must have dropped on the focussing knob. I carefully unscrewed the focussing mechanism and this realeased the jam. It still needs to have some grease added, which I'm busy with at the moment. The prisms are still in order as the cement did not break.

    try to find a heavy grease, when you tighten the eyepice x-bar hinge nut back, turn it on tight then back it off 1/8 turn, this will prevent binding, as long as x-bars are not bent.....gl larry@reichinstruments.com

My right eye piece will not turn how do I repair it or where can I get it fixed?


take the unit to a camera repair shop
many units only have the one side adjustable to balance the image to the eyes but have a central adjustment to adjust the image to be clear/ focused

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.

I have a minolta 404si. it recently took a fall and i dont no whats rong. there is no light coming threw the eye piece. the light meater keeps activating the flash. if i take the lense off there is light...


I suspect your lens is forcing the mirror up when it's mounted on the camera. This would cause a dark viewfinder and as the metering system is also in there then no light means that the camera thinks that it's in total darkness and activates the flash.

Try another lens. If the problem continues then the camera body is broken, if not then it's the lens. Most likely to be the lens though.

Used Minolta lenses are readily available at reasonable cost (or free if you ask on FreeCycle) so unless your lens problem is obvious and easy to fix then just replace it as spares are mainly non-available and labour charges are high. If you want a new lens then Sony retained the same lens mount when they took over Konica Minolta.

Double vision in minolta binoculars


Hi,

This is more common than you would think.. Here's how to set up a pair of binoculars to suit yourself.
Any good binocular will be able to do this and the reason is to allow you to adjust them for the difference in strenght between your two eyes. I wear glasses myself and sometimes contact lenses so it's good to be able to quickly adjust them.

1. turn the binoculars over so you are looking at the underside.
2. on the eyepieces can you see on one eye(usually the right eye) a little plus - minus marking. The eyepiece should be able to rotate a little to each side of this marking.
3. Set the rotating eyepiece to the middle setting.
4. Look through the binoculars as normal and bring the two sides together until you form the two circles that you see into one.
5. Pick an object app 10 meters away.
6 Presuming that the adjustable eyepiece is on the right hand side then close your right eye, look at the middle distance object you chose with your left eye and use the central focusing knob/wheel in the middle to bring your left eyepiece into focus.
7. Now, close your left eye and adjust the rotating right hand eyepiece while looking at the same object until your right eyepiece is in focus.
8. The binoculars should now be set for the differences in strenght of your eyes and you can use the middle focus control as normal.

Most binoculars have a soft rubber eyepiece that can be folded back for people who wear glasses but I, like most people I know who wear glasses, find it horribly uncomfortable.

This method allows you to set them for yourself and if someone else uses your binoculars you can quickly reset them for you.

Hope this helps...


- Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to mention.. This set up is so you can use them without wearing your glasses.. Much more comfortable!!

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.

Further info on eye pc view


The recording mechanism itself was damaged in the fall and that is why it can't record new ones and also sounds like the reason the eye piece is not working the only option you have for a high tech piece of equipment like this is to have it serviced I can help you locate local repair with your zip code(or city) or you can locate the closest authorized service center here:
