How do I fix the focusing knob not working on minolta compact II binoculars 10x25L?


When you say not working, is it not achieving accurate focus when turned, or just not rotating at all ?

Minolta Compact II Binoculars - the focusing adjustment is seized, how do I free it?


The adjusting knob has a rubber cover over it. Remove the rubber cover and take out the phillips head screw underneath. Then turn the adjusting knob all the way left with a pair of pliers and continue turning and it will unscrew and come off. Underneath you will find a metal lock nut, when you loosen this you will find the adjusting knob is suddenly not frozen anymore. It seems that this nut tightens over time to the point where the whole mechanism freezes. You can take the nut off and put some thread lock on the threads and tighten it just enough and it won't happen again. Cheers.

I have a Minolta Compact II binoculars. I haven't used it for a while and now the focus wheel is stucked. I can barely move it. What can I do? Will "WD-40" solve the problem? Thank you so much...


I just bought a pair of this model and had the same problem. l muscled the focus knob repeatedly right to left and back until it finally began to move ever so slightly but progressively until it rotated freely from stop left to stop right. Very good optics and ficus range complimented by adjustable diopter. Had it not given in to my stubborn strong thumb finger grip efforts, I would have resorted to a solvent lubricant. Glad it wasn't necessary. Mike-Florida

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.

Minolta Compact AF 8 binocular continually focussing


My Binos are doing the same thing, I think it is some fixed mode it is stuck in. Anyone know how to get is back to normal working? Maybe the big AF button is stuck on?

I have Minolta Pocket 8x24/8.7, 40 year old binoculars. One side is "limp" and doesn't stay in position for viewing. Fix??


Most compact binoculars have a central bridge. The objective (big lens) end of the binocular hinge usually has a ball bearing in it. The other end may either have a blanking cap or a hub where the neck strap attaches. Removing this cap or hub will reveal a grub screw which tightens another ball bearing against the bridge. Take the appropriate part off the limp side and look for the grub screw. Tightening it will decrease the "limpness". Be careful, as these are sometimes set in place with a locktite of some kind. Best to release pressure first before tightening.

Binocular Loss Of Fluid


I never figured out how to fix it but I bought them at REI and they were able to find the receipt and get a warranty repair. One problem is Minolta no longer makes binoculars so a service center takes care of warranties.The Minolta site has details.
