You have the classic signs of the most common binocular fault: a bent or broken eyepiece carrier yoke.
cause is usually due to the binos being dropped or the eyepieces getting knocked. The only cure is a replacement yoke, but the repair is
rarely cost-effective unless the binos are really expensive and
top-quality models. When last available new, yours sold for just over US$100 and repairs will typically far exceed that price.
yokes cannot be repaired: If bent, then it's near-impossible to unbend
them accurately enough and in any case the process will always either
break the yoke or will severely weaken it. Broken yokes cannot be glued
together as the contact point is just too tiny for the loads it carries,
and as it usually bends before breaking you'd simply end up with a bent
yoke afterwards even if you could glue them.
Send them back to Nikon. The first pair i had did it twice, then they sent me a brand new pair. Here a year later with new pair the eyecup pieces that turn in and out already have cracks in them again.
While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.
These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.
You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.
In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.
It's quite easy to dismantle and inspect, look for tiny retainer screws around eyepiece and/or unscrew lens shrouds. Normally the prisms shouldn't come loose in average to good quality viewers, they'd be held in by some sort of retainer, eg- flexed, spring tempered metal, where you screw in one side and then have to flex (bend) the metal to screw in other side over the back of the prism. It sounds like yours may use an adhesive retainer, if so clean of old residue and use fresh silicone, or may have broken the clip and or screws. But it may just have popped out, in which case reattach it. Make sure the prisms are seated properly, 1 hardly visible flake of glue or dirt under the prism will offset vision noticeably. I would say you may be lucky and find an honest repairer for about $45.00 if prisms aren't damaged.
