Question about Fuji Mariner WP-CF Binocular
Gentlemen, I have a Fujinon 57A2 13768, 7X50MT-SX, 7 deg 30 min binoculars with the height/width indicator range lines and the unlit (Sisteco Ltd. Finland) compass which is visible in the lower left lens view. These binos are approx. 18 years old.
The oil in this compass has recently turned cloudy and light blue in color, and cannot be read. The compass sometimes sticks.
These binos are in excellent shape otherwise, and would not require any other service.
The Spec/Instructions/Care & Accessories booklet published in 1987, which came with the unit states that "Your Fujinon binoculars come with a lifetime limited warranty covering any defect in materials or workmanship".
Can you repair this unit under warranty?
If not, what is the cost to replace the compass?
What is the procedure to initiate repair? I am reluctant to just ship, without some idea of success.
Its easier to explain seeing a diagram. Go to Tascos website and download the instruction manual for the Offshore binoculars or Steiner Optic website and download the general binoculars instruction manual. It has all of Steiners models incuding those with a reticle. Most reticles are the same and there is no difference between meters and yards as your calculations are an approximate.
If your Fujinon is an ex military unit it has what is known as an M22 reticle. It is only slighlty different as it is graduated in mils but the calculations is the same. If it is the M22, google Binocular M22 manual. The military number for this is TM 9-1240-403-12 & P
