Don't let the kids use your binocs after they have had ice cream.
Or popsicles.
Or gum.
Aw heck, just get the kids their own binocs.
Seriously, there's not enough information here to answer your question - if you still need help, you need to describe the problem more fully. What part of the case is sticky? What happened right before it got sticky? Did something spill on it? Was it left in a hot car? People want to help, but we're not psychic.

Can not remove key from ignition lock, when car is in park, shifter button does not release after youn press in please help

The tumblers inside the key lock are jambed. A new ignition cylinder will be needed. If you call a locksmith he will tell you the same. Also the locksmith will be cheaper than taking it to a Chevy Dealer to repair

Dell vostro 1000 left mouse click button is sticking.

Well, a sticky mouse could be a cause of liquid being spilt onto your palmrest. If so you need to get yourself a liquid cleaner (specialized products used for cleaning electronics such as Commercial Alcohol). you need to pour some into the right button of the mouse while pressing the button continuously (dont worry about spilling, will evaporate soon enough.

Before doing this make sure that you power cable and battery is disconnected, and only switch it on about 20 minutes later.

While pressing the button you should feel it loosening.

If it isnt due to liquid, check you warranty and call Dell. They should beable to advise you further.

Headlight buttons on a 2000 buick lesabre custom

Had this problem once. Sticky buttons. Just spray them with water and keep spraying till they come unstuck. Then take some card stock and make little 'tongue depressors - popsicle sticks' and use them to wipe out the surrounding areas of the buttons when they come loose. Seems like someone spilled pop on the dash and it dried. The sugar in the pop has stuck your buttons and they move like 'molasses in january' in Canada!!!

Power door

Was something spilled on the button or is it sticky. sounds like the button is malfunctioning and sticking in the OPEN position. Contact cleaner that can be purchased from electronics store may clean it up and free it from sticking' it evaporates quickly while acting as a solvent to clean electrical components of "GUNK" that can build up, other than that sounds as though you need to order a switch.

Sharp calculator

I had the same problem happen to me. What I did was carefully take the calculator apart using a T-10 Torx screwdriver to remove the back cover. I then used a compressed air can and blew air into all the crevices and holes in the calculator. I was able to dry almost all of the soda the spilled, however some of the soda dried and turned into somewhat of a sticky mess. I was able to carefully wipe the sticky parts clean with a tissue. After doing all of that my calculator worked perfect.

Volume automatic decreases. Have no control of volume

Ensure nothing sticky has been spilled on the TV or the remote, causing the volume down button to stick. Remove batteries from remote to rule it out. Carefully inspect TV volume control for a sticking button. If you find it is sticking, get electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack and spray the button. Ensure TV is unplugged first.

Taking photo's requiring the flash.

the flash housing unit is stucked!!  Try to do this: use around 3 inches sticky tapes like scotch tape or masking tape, stick the 1/3 part on the flash housing unit , now set the release button while pulling the tape upward, do not apply too much force, you are trying to help the housing to go upward not to detached it, ha ha..( the sticky tape is safe to use, dont worry). It always work but in case it does not work from your unit try this dangerous one, using small metal and pressing the release button try to open the door ( yes, like opening the stucked door!), its dangerous that yo might detached the housing from the unit, so be carefull.
