Are you able to focus on the specimen? Is the problem the same if you switch to a higher magnification lens?
Could be several things, a slider half way in, a turret not clicked in to the notch, ie condenser, a filter partway in.

The stage is not moving when the focussing Knobs are moved. The stage moves freely vertically. It's not attached, I'm sure it needs to be re aligned and a screw need tightening, but which screws?


Hi Faye , we will probably need more info

Does the stage move freely on its own without the course focus knobs

Can you move the stage up and down with either of the course focus knobs

Instrument details / picture would help .

How to troubleshoot a microscope having uneven brightness in the observation field?


uneveness of of brightness in the optical field of view (FOV) can be caused by a number of variables, but often times is do to miss alignment of the condenser. Typically when this is the problem there the "hot" (brightess area) will be shifted to one corner or another in the FOV. There are usually some sort of adjustment screw underneath the stage that will allow you to do the alignment. It is easiest if you close down the iris on condenser and adjust the height of the condenser until you can see an octagonal shape appear, then center it in the FOV.

If the uneveness is equally the same throughout the FOV then it may have to do with the position or the height of the condenser. Generally speaking the lower the magnification, the further the condenser should be away from the slide. The condenser narrows or broadens the light allowing you to fill the entire FOV of the objective.

Depending on the quality and the level of the microscope though, you may find that no matter what you do at lower magnifications you can do very little to improve this. I see this a lot with LED models. The dispersion pattern of an LED is much more focused then a halogen, which is GREAT for higher magnification, but often times manufactures will upgrade from halogen to LED an never change the optics of th collector lens and condenser to flatten out the illumination better.

What is the function and the purpose of the parts of the microscope ?


Starting at the bottom of the Compound Microscope scope working up: The base of the scope houses the illumination system and the field lens. It also provides weighted stablility.
The field lens is where the light comes out of the base. This lens focuses the light from the bulb directly into the substage condenser.
The arm of the scope supports the rest of the scope.
Directly above the field condenser is the substage condenser. The substage condenser collects the light and condenses it further into a more concentrated beam of light. With the substage condenser you can control the amount of light and to some degree the defraction of light. This is helpful in adjusting the "contrast" in the image.
Working up, you find the "stage" which is a platform to support the specimen. The stage may or may not have a specimen holder and a set of specimen holder control knobs.
The magnifying lenses are called the objectives. They look like barrels pointing down at the stage. These are usually marked 4x, 10x, 40x, and 100x. These magnifications are further multiplied by the power of the eyepieces which are usually 10x. So, when using the 4x you are actually seeing the specimen at 40x and when you are using the 10x objective you are actually seeing the specimen at 100x and so on. The 4x is used to "scan" the specimen so that you can find the most interesting area and then focus in further on that region. It is very hard to find exactly what you want to focus in on starting with the higher magnifications. Always start with the low magnifications, 4x or 10x.
The objective lenses are mounted on a rotating turret for easy selection.
Moving on up the scope is the head. It is comprised of the eye tube and the eyepiece. If you have two eyepieces your scope is referred to as a "Binocular Compound Microscope". If you have only one eyepiece, your scope is a "Monocular Compound Microscope".

What is parfocal microscope


When you switch between objectives, you don't want to have to refocus every time. By getting a [b]microscope[/b] with objectives that are parfocal, you'll be able to move between <b>objectives<b> without much need for refocusing.

Only 1/2 the field is illuminated


If you have a rotating perforated diaphragm, that means the hole you want to use is blocking the light partially. Make sure your diaphragm is set correctly.

Also, you might want to check that your objective is set and aligned, that could also cause half the field being dark.

Problem with MF-02 binocular microscope stage


I think your problem lies in the way the stage is limited upwards. On top of the stage, right behind it where it slides against the arm, there should be a little screw.  This screw limits the movement of the stage to a certain point upwards.  If the limit exceeds the adjustment gear and its opposing track, then the stage just goes up one notch and then it clunks down.  If you screw it down the stage is limited further down, if you screw it up it's limited a bit higher.  The point of this screw is to prevent objective and slide damage.  Try adjusting this little screw a bit further down and see if it still 'clunks' when you turn it up.  After that we may work on properly adjusting it.  If not, please post again with whatever detail you can provide to aid you with this problem further.

There is five part in microscope

1. Eye piece

2. Binocular tube

3.Objective

4. magnification changer or joom accembaley

5. illumination segment

Try to make it out which part is gives a effect to your vision.

as per my suggesition illumination asembely you just clean it first.
